Two teams namely CSK and Mumbai Indians have done this feat. The match at Samovari (May 29) was truly breathtaking. Ravindra Jadeja clinched the title with a four off the last ball.

It was predicted that this would be the last IPL season for MS Dhoni. However, after winning the final match, he clarified that he will try to play in the next IPL season. The final match between Gujarat Titans and Chennai Super Kings was scheduled for Sunday (May 28). However, due to timely rain, Sunday’s match had to be held on Monday (reserved day). Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium was also visited by rain on Monday. But the game resumed at 12.10 pm. The umpires had given CSK a target of 171 runs in 15 overs for victory under the Duckworth Lewis rule, which they achieved off the last ball.
Ravindra Jadeja () hit back-to-back sixes and fours off the last two balls to seal the match. Dhoni’s wife Sakshi Dhoni and daughter Ziva Dhoni entered the field after the match. Ziva was seen hugging his father. On the other hand, Sakshi was also very emotional. In a video shared by IPL, Ziva is also seen lifting the IPL trophy.

Meanwhile, with CSK needing 10 runs from two balls to win, Dhoni didn’t seem as worried as other captains. He was seen relaxing in his chair in the dugout. Not only this, even after Jadeja won the match, he was sitting in the same place for some time. Later he was also seen to go forward and pick up Jadeja.
