Team Chennai Super Kings won the IPL trophy for the fourth time in the 14 editions and made fans extremely happy. From finishing the league stage at 7th spot in IPL 2020, the team managed to lift the trophy by making a solid come back in the next season. The Dhoni led team comfortably won the match against Kolkata Knight Riders in the finals by 27 runs and won the winning cash prize of Rs.20 crores.
In the post match presentation, Dhoni gave credits to team KKR for the way they throughout the tournament. He also credited them as a “deserving” team to win the trophy for the performances they pulled out to reach finals. The former Indian captain who is going to mentor team India in the T20 world Cup, also hinted that he will be playing the next season by saying that he hasn’t left the legacy behind still.
“If any team deserved to win the IPL this year, I feel it was KKR. I think the break helped them. Coming to CSK we shuffled a few players, we used them in different ways. Important was to take the responsibility. I felt we had match-winners game after game. People who were in form they ensured they were scoring throughout the tournament and others were chipping in. Every final is special. Yes we are 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. I hope CSK in the coming years will be known for that” Dhoni said in the post match presentation.
“I would love to thank the fans. We are in Dubai now. Even when we played in South Africa, we always got good amount of support. Thanks to all of them. If feels like Chepauk, Chennai. Hopefully we will come back to play of the Chennai fans next year” he said to while addressing the fans. When Harsha Bhogle asked about his retention in CSK for the next year, Dhoni said that it is not about himself featuring in the team but what’s more important is to look the future of the team. He wanted to make a team for CSK for the next ten year. When Harsha concluded by “thanking” Dhoni for the legacy he left behind, the cricketer, in a laughing manner said “Still I haven’t left behind” to confirm that he is going to play for CSK in the upcoming edition.
