NoWelcome to Maskar, the weekly sports bulletin of News18 Hindi Podcast. I am with you Naveen Srivastava. The world’s biggest cricket league IPL 2023 title has been won by Chennai Super Kings for the fifth time. With this, the Chennai team has also equaled Mumbai Indians’ record of winning the IPL title 5 times.

Earlier, Chennai Super Kings won the titles in 2010, 2011, 2018 and 2021 under the leadership of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Chennai Super Kings captured the glittering trophy of IPL 2023 by defeating defending champions Gujarat Titans by five wickets in a rain-soaked and thrill-filled title clash.

Seeing the title match of the fork played at the Narendra Modi Cricket Stadium, it seemed that a heart-pounding final match is going on in the field, at the same time, as if another conflict has broken out somewhere. Between rain and cricket fans. A passion for cricket was being seen in these lovers, a stubbornness that how long will it rain, we will go from here today only after seeing the final.

Finally, in the rain-interrupted final match of IPL played on Reserve Day, Indradevata maintained grace in the last moments and the match was decided under the Duckworth-Lewis rule, but it was done. The final of the IPL was to be held on May 28, but due to rain, the match was played on Reserve-Day i.e. on May 29. In this match too, rain disrupted.

In the title match of the 16th edition of IPL, Chennai had a target of 215 runs to win, but due to rain, Chennai got a revised target of 171 runs to win in 15 overs under the Duckworth-Lewis rule. In response, Chennai started well and Rituraj Gaikwad and Conway added a quick 74 runs for the first wicket.

In the last three overs, Chennai had to score 38 runs to win. In the 13th over, Mohit Sharma, who proved to be the trump card for Gujarat, came for bowling. Ambati Rayudu, playing his last match on the first three balls, turned the match towards Chennai by hitting two sixes and a four, but he was dismissed on the fourth ball.

On the very next ball, Dhoni also returned to the pavilion without opening the account. Mohammed Shami did the 14th over for the team. Eight runs were scored in this over. In this way the match reached a very exciting situation in the last over. Chennai Super Kings needed 13 runs to win. In the last over, Mohit Sharma used tremendous yorker balls so that only three runs could be scored in the first four balls.

Now Chennai needed 10 runs in just two balls. The strike was with Ravindra Jadeja. Jadeja hit a wonderful six on the fifth ball under pressure. Final ball now, four runs to win. The heartbeat increased, the excitement reached its peak. In such a situation, Ravindra Jadeja has to be praised for keeping himself cool and giving Chennai a historic and memorable victory by hitting a ball pitched on the legstum for a boundary at the final leg.

Jadeja scored an unbeaten 15 runs in 6 balls. Devon Conway scored the maximum 47 runs in 25 balls for Chennai. Shivam Dubey remained unbeaten after scoring 32 runs in 21 balls with the help of 2 sixes. Ajinkya Rahane also had an important contribution in getting the win.
