Chennai Super Kings (CSK) skipper, MS Dhoni played his part to perfection while leading the team to win their fourth Indian Premier League (IPL) title. CSK completely outplayed Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by 27 runs in a one-sided final on Friday. Dhoni, who is also renowned for his shrewdness, also had a cheeky response after the game to Harsha Bhogle’s quip that will fill hope in all the CSK fans.

MS Dhoni led CSK to its 4th IPL title

Before he signed off the post-match interview, Harsha Bhogle said, “You can be proud of the legacy you have left behind”, to which after a small pause, Dhoni cheekily responded, “Still I haven’t left behind….”

As the final delivery was bowled, MS Dhoni had that lingering smile at the far corner of his lips as he might’ve led the team for one last time. After batting first, CSK posted a formidable target of 192 for 3 and then squeezed Knights for only 165 for 9 despite a promising opening stand of 91 between Shubman Gill (51 off 43 balls) and Venkatesh Iyer (50 off 32 balls).

It was the canny captaincy of MS Dhoni that ensured 91 for no loss turned into 125 for 8 and before KKR realized, it seemed there was only one team on the park.

Speaking on the moment the winning captain was all smiles as MS Dhoni said, “Yes we are a most consistent team looking at the stats but we have also lost finals. Not letting the opposition in is something we consciously wanted to improve. We don’t really talk a lot. It’s more one-on-one. The moment you talk in a team room there is a bit of pressure. You can’t deliver without a good team. We also have great individuals as well.”

He thanked the fans, saying “I would love to thank the fans. We are in Dubai now. Even when we played in South Africa, we always got a good amount of support. Thanks to all of them. If feels like Chepauk, Chennai.”

MS Dhoni also showered praise on his opponents as he said, “Before I start talking about CSK, it’s important I talk about KKR. For the position they were in after the first phase, to perform this well, it’s very difficult. If any team deserved to win the IPL this year, it is KKR for the way they have played. I think the break helped them.”
