VIVO IPL 2021: CSK triumphed by 26 runs and won the IPL title for the fourth time.
The battle between Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders made up the hipe, and it looked like the match was headed in the direction of KKR at one point, but the Dhoni-led squad held their nerve to finish the match and win it for their supporters. With three premium spinners in their ranks, KKR won the toss and elected to bowl first on a pitch that is favourable to spinners. However, the decision backfired when CSK’s top order once again exceeded expectations and gave the team a solid start. KKR set a goal of 192 runs with a top score of 86 from Faf Du Plessis (59 balls) and cameos from Rituraj Gaikwad 32, Robin Uthappa 31 runs, and Moeen Ail 37 runs.
In pursuit of the target, KKR’s openers got them off to a flying start, hitting 91 runs in only 10.4 overs to put them in position for a huge finish. In the game, both of the openers had 50s. After losing both openers, KKR lost their momentum and lost the match by 27 runs; in addition to their openers, none of their other recognised batsmen were able to score in double figures. Their ineffective middle order was once again the cause of their loss from the finals.
Just after the win of CSK, social media were filled with praises and wishes from fans and ex crickets, let’s see and enjoy some of reactions from the Twitter.
