IPL 2021 Final: “Our Mentor Just Won The IPL”-Twitter Buzzes After Chennai Super Kings Win Fourth IPL Title

CSK fourth IPL title

Chennai Super Kings beat Kolkata Knight Riders by 27 runs in Dubai to win their fourth IPL title. KKR chasing a mammoth target of 193 runs scored 165/9 and lost their last eight wickets for 74 runs as MS Dhoni and his CSK won their fourth IPL title. Meanwhile, this was KKR’s first loss in an IPL final after having won previously in 2012 and 2014.

KKR had an opening partnership of 91 runs inside the first 10 overs. However, it all went down after Venkatesh Iyer’s dismissal for 50. In a bid to keep upto the asking rate, the KKR batsmen perished in their efforts to score big.

The middle-order of Dinesh Karthik, Eoin Morgan and Shakib Al Hasan failed to deliver as Andre Russell’s absence was felt dearly by the side. The CSK bowlers after the initial partnership kept chipping away with the wickets.

Before being on target with the ball, Faf Du Plessis (86) ensured that he helped CSK get to a score of 192. Contributions from Ruturaj Gaikwad (32), Robin Uthappa (31) and Moeen Ali (37) helped the team in the process.

This is how Twitter Reacted To CSK’s Win

 

Earlier in the day, KKR skipper Eoin Morgan won the toss and opted to bowl first favouring the side to chase the score down. However, as it turned out, the target was a bit too stiff for the KKR batting lineup with their misfiring middle-order adding to their woes.
