Ravindra Jadeja is CSK’s Superhero: Fans hail star all-rounder after Chennai win record-equalling 5th IPL title





By India Today Sports Desk: Chennai Super Kings fans hailed Ravindra Jadeja as the team’s superhero after the star all-rounder kept his cool and helped CSK seal a sensational victory off the final delivery in the final against Gujarat Titans and a record-equalling fifth IPL title on Monday.

Chennai Super Kings came into bat, needing a stiff target of 215 in 20 overs, but midway through the very first over of the chase, the rain gods showed up. Everyone had to wait a long time to get play restarted and Chennai needed 171 in 15 overs. The openers went hard at the bowlers and set the platform with a quick 74-run stand. Both Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway fell in the same over, but Shivam Dube and Ajinkya Rahane came in and kept the ante up.

Rahane got out after a few brilliant shots and Ambati Rayudu came out in his final innings of the Indian T20 League and smashed a few balls away. There was a slight hiccup as Rayudu and then MS Dhoni fell in quick succession but Ravindra Jadeja, the star all-rounder, kept his cool and took his side to a sensational victory off the final delivery.

Jadeja finished the game off in amazing fashion and the Chennai players flooded the field in ecstasy. Jadeja was off on a celebratory run through the stadium, and his CSK teammates tried to catch up with him. All those in yellow celebrate, they breathe a sigh of relief. Absolute heartbreak for Mohit Sharma, who bowled a sensational spell, but it is Chennai who reigns supreme once again.

Talk about a memorable final and this one will probably be right there among the best ones in history. A final that started on the 28th of May in India has now finished on the 30th of May! We had a washout, then play looked rain-free on the reserve day, and in the end, we had another rain intervention. But, after all that, we got a cracker of a game, and cricketing fans inside the stadium and all over the globe will be filled with joy because they have got to witness something special here.
