CSK clinch their 4th title after beating KKR by 27 runs
Chasing 193 runs KKR lost the final to CSK .
What a season for Chennai! They have bounced back brilliantly from the disappointment of 2020 and added yet another trophy to their cabinet. After losing the toss, it was important for Chennai to start well. Ruturaj Gaikwad and Faf du Plessis did the job and then the latter extended his stay in the middle. Robin Uthappa and Moeen Ali showed the right intent to never let the tempo down and Chennai managed a big total on the board. Their bowling was below-par at the start and MS Dhoni dropping Venkatesh Iyer for a nought cost them in the first half. But it was always a matter of one breakthrough and as soon as that arrived, Chennai forced a collapse to run away with the trophy.
