Chennai Super Kings lifted their fourth IPL title after beating Kolkata Knight Riders by 27 runs in the final in Dubai.
MS Dhoni: Before I start talking about CSK, it’s important I talk about KKR. For the position they were in after the first phase, to perform this well, it’s very difficult. If any team deserved to win the IPL this year, it is KKR for the way they have played. I think the break helped them. Yes we are most consistent team looking at the stats but we have also lost finals.
#KKR’s turnaround was the story of #IPL2021 Be extremely proud of your effort…you lit up the tournament in the second half. Thanks for the memories. And also, for unleashing a seriously talented cricketer in Venkatesh Iyer. 👏👏— Aakash Chopra (@cricketaakash) October 15, 2021

Eoin Morgan: Extremely proud of the fight the boys have put in. Today unfortunately wasn’t ours. Venkatesh is new to this platform but has a huge future. Him and Gill have been the cornerstone of our batting. The energy Tripathi showed was absolutely outstanding.
