Chennai Super Kings has won the IPL title for the fourth time.
Chennai Super King is the Indian Premier League champion (IPL) 2021. It was certainly a phenomenal campaign as CSK endured last season’s horrific campaign and finished the league stage in the penultimate place. However, the Lions roared and gave their fourth prestigious title. On the night of the final, MS Dhoni’s men defeated the Kolkata Knight Riders in 27 runs to gain glory.
As for how the game unfolded, the coin landed in KKR’s favor and Eoin Morgan was, of course, elected to the field. His decision was not fruitful as CSK got off to a breakthrough. Openers Ruturaj Gaikwad and Fafdu Plessis added 61 runs to the first wicket before the former was fired. However, Du Plessis didn’t drop the guards and got a great 81.

He was well supported by Robin Utappa and Moen Ali, who tipped in with a useful contribution. Riding on their efforts, CSK posted 192/3 with an allotted 20 overs. Chasing the mammoth total, KKR got off to a flying start with Shubman Gil and Venkatesh Iyer adding 91 runs to their first wicket.
The game seemed ready at about the midpoint. However, the required run rate was constantly rising and KKR could not succumb to the pressure. Sunil Narine, Dinesh Karthik, Eoin Morgan, Nitish Lana and others have failed miserably due to the collapse of KKR’s middle order. After that, the tailor couldn’t do much, so the result was pretty unavoidable.
Pacemakers Shivam Mavi and Rocky Ferguson played some fun shots at the endover, but could only narrow the margin of defeat. As a result, KKR managed only 165/9 and lost the contest in 27 runs. The Dubai stadium scene had to be noted as CSK players were ecstatic.
