raina said this
Now, former Chennai Super Kings player Suresh Raina said on Jio Cinema let’s see how they got to the final. 14 Season 10 finales, I think that’s a great achievement. MS Dhoni kept it simple. He deserves the credit and Ruturaj Gaikwad told me that CSK wants to win the title for Dhoni. All of India wants to see Dhoni win the IPL. But what we could see today is that Chennai is very hard to beat on this ground. Everything he touches turns to gold, hence his name Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
Reached the final for the tenth time
In the history of IPL, the Chennai Super Kings team has played 14 seasons, out of which they have qualified for the playoffs 12 times and reached the final 10 times. CSK is the first team in IPL history to have reached the IPL final 10 times. Under the captaincy of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the CSK team has won the IPL trophy 4 times.
Gujarat was defeated
In this match, Gujarat Titans captain Hardik Pandya won the toss and decided to bowl first. Which turned out to be absolutely wrong. In this match, the CSK openers performed amazingly. Rituraj Gaikwad contributed 60 runs, Devon Conway contributed 40 runs. Apart from this, Ravindra Jadeja played a 22-run innings. It was thanks to these players that the CSK team was able to score a respectable score. At the same time, only Shubman Gill was able to score a 42-run innings for Gujarat. Apart from this, Rashid Khan scored 30 runs off 16 balls. Other hitters on the team were unable to perform well. Therefore, he had to face defeat by 15 runs.
