Chennai Super Kings which has won IPL three times was slapped with a two-year ban and re-entered the league in 2018.

In the 2019 edition, it lost the final by one run to Mumbai Indians.

Noting that turbulence has become an occupational hazard, he said one needs to have a clear focus and eye on the goals without responding to "adversities".

“There is turbulence every time and it can hit any individual, corporate, politics or party and any sphere. Do not challenge the shadows, lead by example, one wrong decision will put you back by 20 years”, he said.

Srinivasan was delivering the 37th Endowment Lecture on Leadership in Turbulent Times organised by IIT Madras and Employers’ Federation of Southern India here on Thursday.
