Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Friday said it was important for him to make a good comeback after missing out on a place in the playoffs last year and he is happy that his team has succeeded and emerged champions. Chennai won the Indian Premier League (IPL) title for the fourth time by defeating Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by 27 runs in the final. When invited to bat first, Chennai scored 192 for three on the back of 86 by Faf du Plessis and useful contributions from other top-order batsmen. In reply, KKR got off to a good start by adding 91 runs for the first wicket by Shubman Gill (51) and Venkatesh Iyer (50), but their team could only manage 165 for nine in the end.

Dhoni said after the match, ‘Before talking about Chennai, I would like to talk about KKR. If any team was the title contender in this IPL it was KKR. He made a great comeback. I think the break benefited him. “As far as Chennai is concerned, we are a consistent performing team in statistics, but we kept losing in the finals. We wanted to improve on the aspect that didn’t overwhelm the opposition. We did this. It was important for us to make a good comeback.

He said, ‘I would love to thank the fans. Wherever we have played, even when we were in South Africa, we had a good number of CSK fans. You yearn for that. Thanks to all of them, it feels like we are playing in Chennai. Hope we come back to Chennai for the fans. As I said earlier also, it depends on BCCI how many days I will play. With two new teams coming in, we have to decide what is good for CSK. It’s not about being in the top three or four. It is about building a strong core team to ensure that the franchise does not suffer.
