Chennai Super Kings (CSK) claimed their fifth Indian Premier League (IPL) title, matching the record set by Mumbai Indians. They achieved a thrilling five-wicket victory over the Gujarat Titans (GT), setting off a joyous celebration with fireworks. Dhoni, the captain of CSK, received the IPL trophy and then handed it to Rayudu and Jadeja. The Gujarat Titans batted first, managing to score 214 for four, with B Sai Sudharsan’s exceptional innings of 96 runs off 47 balls. However, due to rain, CSK’s target was adjusted to 171 runs to be chased within 15 overs.
Because of heavy rainfall, the final match, originally scheduled for Sunday, was postponed to the reserve day, which was Monday. In the end, CSK emerged triumphant against the defending champions, using the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern (DLS) Method. The packed Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad witnessed an exhilarating encounter, as CSK completed their mission on the final ball. This match holds particular significance as it may mark the legendary Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s last appearance in the T20 league.
