It is title number four for the Chennai Super Kings. CSK outclassed a timid Kolkata Knight Rider side as they lift yet another IPL title. Faf du Plessis’ brilliance at the top of the order and Shardul Thakur’s double-wicket over saw the Super Kings make an epic comeback following a strong opening stand for the KKR openers.

Put in to bat first, CSK put up a monumental total of 192 riding on du Plessis’ 86 and handy cameos from Robin Uthappa and Moeen Ali. The Knight Riders got off to a solid start as Venkatesh Iyer and Shubman Gill put up a 91 run stand but everything fell apart thereafter.

The Protea star finished second in the list of highest run-getters of the season behind his opening partner Ruturaj Gaikwad. Netizens were in awe of his innings which set the stage for the fabulous win.
