The Indian Premier League ended with an exciting final between Chennai Super Kings and Gujarat Titans after a fantastic two months of play. With their excellent rosters and exemplary leadership, the top two teams in the points standings appeared set to compete in the championship game. Hardik Pandya took control of the team after successfully leading the Gujarat Titans to their first IPL championship in 2022. MS Dhoni, a living icon, led Chennai Super Kings once more as captain and earned the last slot a record ten times. In total, he participated in 11 Indian Premier League finals.
When the weather caused a postponement to May 29, 2023, on May 28, 2023, the eagerly anticipated game suffered a significant setback. However, the following day wasn’t any better either because it rained all evening. Thankfully, the weather improved that evening, and the game started immediately.
In the end, the wait was worthwhile. The Chennai Super Kings (CSK) team’s astounding fifth Indian Premier League (IPL) title success was celebrated late into the early hours of Tuesday by the fans who braved the rain donning yellow jerseys to express their support. The IPL 2023 final was supposed to start at 7:30 p.m. on May 28 and end four hours later. Still, it began on May 29, the reserve day, 24 hours later and ended six hours later, more than two hours after a rain delay, when CSK started chasing the formidable Gujarat Titans’ total of 214 for four.
The legendary Indian cricketer MS Dhoni played in his 250th Indian Premier League (IPL) game during the championship game between Chennai Super Kings and Gujarat Titans, adding other records to his resume. Dhoni is now the first cricket player to appear in 250 games in the premier franchise-themed competition. The 41-year-old is the only player participating in 11 IPL championship games. Four of the CSK’s ten IPL final victories have come under Dhoni’s direction. The lads in yellow must successfully chase down a massive target of 215 runs for the tally to rise to five.
