CSK vs GT, IPL Final 2023: Ravindra Jadeja dedicates Chennai Super Kings title win to MS Dhoni | Cricket News

The scenes of Chennai Super Kings captain MS Dhoni lifting Ravindra Jadeja after the handyman’s winning cameo in the IPL 2023 final against Gujarat Titans will remain etched in memory forever. And with Dhoni’s participation in another IPL season uncertain, Jadeja dedicated the victory to the talismanic CSK skipper.
Needing 10 from her last two balls to hit the revised target of 171 in 15 overs in Monday’s rain-shortened final in Ahmedabad, Jadeja (15* off 6 balls) hit Mohit Sharma for a six and a four to complete a exciting five -Wicket Triumph (DLS method) for CSK.

Gujarat had put up a mammoth 214/4, led by Sai Sudharsan with 96 off 47 balls. But it started to rain in the first over of CSK’s run-chase and the delay forced the target to be revised.
“I would like to dedicate this win to a special member of CSK, MS Dhoni,” said Jadeja.

“I was just thinking I need to swing hard, as hard as possible. Where the ball is going to go, I wasn’t thinking about it, just trying to swing hard. I was leaning in and trying to hit straight, because I know Mohit can throw those balls slower.” Jadeja added.
“It’s amazing to win my fifth title in front of my home crowd. I’m from Gujarat and it’s a special feeling. This crowd was amazing. They waited for the rain to stop until late at night. I’d like to congratulate the CSK fans who are come to support us.”
