MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings (CSK) won their fifth Indian Premier League (IPL) title by defeating Hardik Pandya’s Gujarat Titans (GT) by five wickets in a last-ball thriller in Ahmedabad on Monday.
A strong partnership between Conway-Ruturaj helped lay the foundation for a successful run chase, but a game-changing spell from Mohit Sharma threatened to rob CSK of victory. However, Dubey and Jadeja kept calm to win a memorable title for the men in yellow.
Ravindra Jadeja gave this victory to captain M.S. Dedicating it to Dhoni, he said, “It feels amazing to win the fifth title in front of our home crowd. I am from Gujarat and this is a special feeling. This crowd was amazing. They were waiting. As the rain held off until late at night, I would like to say a big thank you to the CSK fans who came out to support us. I would like to dedicate this victory to a special member of the CSK team, MS Dhoni. I was just thinking that I need to swing as hard as I can. I wasn’t thinking about where the ball would go, just looking to swing hard. I was holding myself back and trying to hit straight because I know Mohit can bowl. Slow balls.”
