Chennai Super Kings lifted their fifth IPL title as they got the better of Gujarat Titans in an out-and-out exciting IPL final. Batting First Gujarat posted a massive 214 runs courtesy of a Sai Sudharsan display. But CSK held their nerve as Ravindra Jadeja pulled off a brilliant win in the last ball.

The final went down to the wire as CSK needed 10 in the last two balls. MS Dhoni failed to produce any magic as the 41-year-old went out for a duck. But it was Ravindra Jadeja who stood tall and delivered a hammer blow on Gujarat’s ambitions. He first sent Mohit for a six over the long on and then hit a four towards the leg side to script history as CSK equalled Mumbai Indians’ tally of having five IPL titles.
