The eleventh edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) came to a close yesterday with the Grand Finale between the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). The match was staged at the iconic Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai and MS Dhoni’s men steamrolled the Orange Army by eight wickets with nine balls to spare.
Despite the one-sided finish, the match wasn’t short of any excitement as the crowd was treated to some enthralling cricket by both franchises. Dhoni won the toss and elected to bat first. The Sunrisers lost the wicket of Shreevats Goswami, but Shikhar Dhawan and Kane Williamson’s fifty-run stand bailed them out. However, the SRH skipper was dismissed for 47 runs by Karn Sharma.
Following Williamson’s dismissal, Shakib Al Hasan, Yusuf Pathan and Carlos Braithwaite took the CSK bowling by the scruff of their necks and ensured that SRH reach 178 runs in 20 overs. In the start of CSK’s run chase, the Sunrisers’ got them on the mat and never allowed them to blaze away. Shane Watson took eleven balls to open his account.
The extravaganza comes to an end
The Yellow Army didn’t stop thereafter the bashed the bowlers across the entire circumference of the park. Watson notched a jaw-dropping knock of 117 runs from 57 balls, which included 11 boundaries and eight sixes and took the sting out of the SRH bowlers. The dying stages of the match turned out to be a cakewalk as the former Australian’s blitz took the target down by a significant extent.
Apart from the final, the event was also a witness to some riveting contests between bat and ball. A number of matches went right down to the wire and kept everyone on the edge of their seats. Meanwhile, Twitterati is shell-shocked by the conclusion of the cash-rich league. A number of users have shared hilarious memes surrounding the conclusion of IPL 2018.
