Chennai Super Kings won the IPL 2023 championship by defeating Gujarat Titans with the game’s final ball. The second inning was cut short to 15 overs due to the weather, leaving 171 runs to be scored. In a Monday match that was postponed due to rain, Ravindra Jadeja concluded in MS Dhoni fashion by hitting a six and a four off the final two balls to lead Chennai Super Kings to their fifth Indian Premier League championship.
IPL 2023 Final Took Three Days to Finish
This IPL final took three days to finish, and even then, it came down to the last ball. In addition, there was a famous post-game interview that most certainly would have destroyed the Internet once more. Perhaps this was an attempt by the gods to keep everyone watching this massive competition for a little while longer. Dhoni is now presented with the trophy together with Jadeja and Rayudu. gives it to Rayudu, who then distributes it to the younger teammates. Any surprises therein? Certain things never alter. CSK celebrate, presumably in part to commemorate MS Dhoni’s gift of one more season. Isn’t that something to keep us on our toes while we wait for IPL 2024?

In the IPL 2023 championship match versus CSK, GT scored 214 runs thanks to Sai Sudharsan‘s outstanding 96-run performance in just 47 balls, which included eight boundaries and six maximums. Sai Sudharshan of the Gujarat Titans (GT) lit up the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad with a fine knock of 96 in only 47 balls during the Indian Premier League (IPL) final against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on Monday. The cricket community showed their support for Sai Sudharshan on social media. Eight fours and six sixes made up Sudharshan’s knock. He scored runs with a strike rate of more than 204. The legendary Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar praised him for his inning, calling it a visual feast.
CSK Had the Last Laugh and Registered Their 5th Title
As usual, Devon Conway and Ruturaj Gaikwad provided the necessary opening start. Rahane and Shivam Dube took over after Ruturaj and Conway both lost their two wickets quickly. Rahane shown his talent, scored quickly, ran, and exited. Shivam was having a hard time getting it in the middle. Ambati Rayudu and Dube thereafter hit hard and quickly scored runs. Captain MS arrived and left on the golden duck after Rayudu. Later, Jadeja demonstrated his hitting prowess and gave CSK the victory with the final ball.
The dramatic last-ball encounter between Gujarat Titans and Chennai Super Kings on Monday will go down in history as the day Chennai Super Kings won their fifth IPL championship. Rain in Ahmedabad forced the postponement of the final game, which Gujarat won with a total of 214/4 in 20 overs. As CSK chased 171 in 15 overs (using the DLS method), they needed four runs off the last ball, and Ravindra Jadeja hit a boundary off Mohit Sharma’s delivery to win their side their fifth IPL title.
