Chennai Super Kings team won the IPL 2023 trophy. On Tuesday (May 30), the final match was declared at around 2 pm. In this match, CSK defeated Gujarat Titans by 5 wickets. The trophy was won for the fifth time under the leadership of MS Dhoni. Speaking after his performance, former Indian team coach and legendary cricketer Ravi Shastri praised Dhoni.
Praising Dhoni, one of the most successful captains in cricket history, Ravi Shastri said,
“When Dhoni stops, he will leave behind a great tradition in the IPL. In Chennai and Tamil Nadu it is called Thala. Coming from a place like Jharkhand and gaining so much popularity in South India proves his greatness. It is impossible for anyone to get such fame.
Dhoni is considered as the most successful captain in IPL. Under his leadership, Chennai have reached the finals of the tournament 10 times. Also, the team managed to win the title 5 times. Also, if we think about the Indian team, under his leadership, the Indian team has won the ODI and T20 World Cup in their name. He also won the Champions Trophy. He also holds the distinction of leading the Indian team to the number one position in the World Test rankings for the first time.
Talking about the match, Chennai won the match which was very tight till the last ball. The initial challenge of 215 runs in 20 overs was reduced to 171 in 15 overs due to rain. However, due to the contribution of all the batsmen, Chennai overcame this challenge on the last ball.
