Chennai Super Kings arguably have the craziest fanbase of the IPL. Be it at their home ground Chepauk or at any other venue, one could witness a sea of yellow whenever the MS Dhoni-led side has taken the field. With many anticipating this season to be Dhoni’s last, Chennai supporters denied leaving the opportunity to see the legendary skipper featuring in the IPL final, for the 10th time and perhaps for the last time as well.

Chennai have been a dominant force in this IPL. They progressed to the playoffs after finishing second in the league table. In the first Qualifier, Chennai had to overcome Gujarat Titans and they succeeded in the task in front of a full house Chepauk. Brimming with the home-support, MS Dhoni and Co registered a commanding 15-run victory in the crucial fixture.

Winning the toss, the visiting captain, Hardik Pandya, sent the hosts to bat first on the slow Chennai track. Powered by a blistering start from their openers, Chennai could produce a worth-fighting 172 runs in 20 overs. Ruturaj Gaikwad was the pick of the betters for Chennai and scored 60 off 44 balls. His opening partner Devon Conway showed off his consistency and played a composed 40-run knock. In response, Gujarat could not negotiate with Chennai’s on-song bowling attack and eventually got bundled out for 157 runs.

The scenario is expected to be different during the final in Ahmedabad where Gujarat Titans will play in front of the home fans. The Hardik Pandya-led unit will eye for sweet revenge in the summit battle in an effort to take their second consecutive IPL trophy home.
