On Friday, October 15, under the captainship of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Chennai Super King won the fourth IPL trophy after beating Kolkata Knight Rider by 27 runs in IPL 2021 Final at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. After IPL 2020 exit, MS Dhoni said, “CSK will come back stronger, that’s what we are known for” and this time they manifest it.
When KKR won the toss, they chose to bowl first so that they could chase like the last two playoff games. In this season, CSK’s record of chasing raised the confidence of the men in purple. But the men in yellow came up with a quintessential game plan and Dhoni again proved that he is still the best captain by guiding his team for the 9th time to the final and winning the IPL trophy for the 4th time. After Mumbai, CSK is the another successful team with four titles in the IPL.
