Chennai Super Kings beats Gujarat Titans and takes home IPL trophy for the Fifth time (2010, 2011, 2018, 2021 and now 2023).
Jadeja scores 10 runs in last 2 balls as CSK defeat GT to equal record for winning most IPL titles.
The match was originally scheduled for Sunday, May 28. However, uninterrupted rain forced the game to move to reserve day. GT and CSK then squared off on Monday, May 29, in the final at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
After being asked to bat first, GT reached a mammoth total of 214/4 in 20 overs. Sai Sudharsan (96), Wriddhiman Saha (54), Shubman Gill (39), and Hardik Pandya (21*) starred for them in the batting department. Rain then intervened in the proceedings and caused a delay in the second innings.
CSK needed 171 runs in 15 overs (DLS method) after the resumption. A collective effort from the batting unit helped Super Kings reach the winning shores off the final ball.
As soon as Ravindra Jadeja hit the four off the final ball to win the game, CSK fans in the stadium and across the country celebrated jubilantly. MS Dhoni and Chennai Super Kings fans took to the roads to enjoy the memorable victory.
