The Chennai Super Kings (CSK) broke all the shackles and records to embrace a colossal and phenomenal victory to win their third Indian Premier League (IPL) title. After going up on a spectacular run throughout the league stages of the competition, the MS Dhoni-led side ended up on the second position and then advanced through for the final by beating the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the first qualifier.

And finally, in the finale clash, CSK once again recorded an emphatic 8-wicket victory and defeated the Kane Williamson-led side for the fourth time in the tournament.

After being out of the IPL for the span of two years due to suspension, CSK entered the eleventh edition of the tournament as the underdogs. There was some huge criticism against the strategies of the franchise owners and the management in regards to selecting most of the cricketers who are aged above thirty years. However, going with the age was the experience which the players brought to the CSK dressing room and all of them had a better understanding and knowledge to deal the pressure situations in a tournament like the IPL.

Each and every individual in the CSK unit proved his worth in some part of the tournament by delivering a match-winning performance. Faf du Plessis who was not at his best in the league stages played a remarkable knock in Qualifier 1 to power his team in the final. CSK opener Shane Watson who had a comprehensive run in the tournament, showed his experience with a smashing hundred (117 off 57 balls) to dominate the Sunrisers bowlers in the huge final match, despite struggling a bit with his timing in the early part of the innings.

Interestingly, she was also spot on with the forecast of Shane Watson being the Man of the Match in the final. The Twitter user predicted these answers in a contest hosted by a Twitter user.
