Team Chennai Super Kings (CSK) departed for their home Chennai to celebrate their third Indian Premier League (IPL) title win. They returned to IPL after serving a two-year ban and the MS Dhoni gave fans a memorable gift.
The team will celebrate their victory with the CSK fans who kept supporting them even they were asked to move to Pune mid tournament.
CSK defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) to win the finals by 8 wickets. Their star was Shane Watson who single-handedly guided CSK to an 8-wicket win. Watson scored an unbeaten 117 off 57 balls in a high-pressure game.
Dhoni was very happy with the win and talked about the team performance after the win. "By the time you reach the final everybody know their roles. The fielders have to adjust their roles while fielding, but while batting the styles are well known. So if somebody is finding it difficult in the middle, you know the incoming batsmen wouldn't find it easy as well. Well, Bhuvi is as deceptive as Rashid and thus it's not just one bowler in their side who could put pressure on us. So it was a good batting effort, but we always had belief in the firepower our middle-order has," Dhoni said after the match.
"A lot of people talk about stats, so tonight is 27th, my jersey number is seven and this is the seventh final for us. Enough reasons to win it. But none of these reasons matter, what matters is that we've won it in the end," Dhoni said.
