Cyclone Gaja relief work: Chennai Super Kings come forward to donate a handsome sum of money for relief work.
IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings have donated INR 1 crore to the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund for Cyclone Gaja relief work in the state. In what came across as a generous act on the part of the franchise, it is bringing a lot of praises on their side for the same.
Going by numbers, the natural disaster forced some 3.5 lakh people to displace and find an accommodation in relief camps.
The cyclone had majorly caused damage in the delta districts. Other than CSK, many other entities have come forward with a helping hand. If reports are to be believed, contributions made to the chief minister’s relief fund were nearly worth INR 50 crore.
Recently, Chief Executive Officer of the CSK KS Viswanathan and India Cements vice-chairman and Managing Director N Srinivasan and its president Rakesh Singh met Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami, handing over to him a cheque of INR 1 crore to help in the relief work.

Current IPL champions Super Kings are one of the most followed franchise in the tournament. Despite getting banned for a couple of years, fans’ love and support didn’t reduced a bit for them. With them making such an important contribution, one expects more fans coming their way.
Captained by former India captain and current wicket-keeper batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni since 2008, the team appears to be inculcating values from the 37-year old cricketer. Under Dhoni, the team has won the ‘Fairplay Award’ several times in the tourney.
