In the final match of IPL 2023, Chennai Super Kings defeated Gujarat Titans by five wickets to become champions for the fifth time in IPL. With this, Chennai has equaled Mumbai Indians in terms of winning the most trophies. Jadeja was losing the match to Chennai, who turned the match in the last two balls.

Chennai became champion for the fifth time

In this match, Gujarat was given a target of 215 runs, but due to rain, according to the Duckworth-Lewis rule, the target was reduced to 171 runs in 15 overs. However, the Chennai team won the match by scoring 171 runs for 5 wickets and captured the title. Devon Conway scored the highest 47 runs in 25 balls for Chennai. Shivam Dubey scored 32 runs and Ajinkya Rahane scored 27 runs. Mohit Sharma took 3 wickets and Noor Ahmed took 2 wickets from Gujarat.

Jadeja’s wonder in the last over

In yesterday’s final, Chennai needed 10 runs from the last two balls to win. Star finisher Ravindra Jadeja came at number-7 after Dhoni in the match. Mohit Sharma bowled brilliantly and put the Chennai team under pressure. He gave only three runs in the first four balls. After this, Ravindra Jadeja made Chennai the champion for the fifth time by hitting six fours. In this match, Dhoni got out on the very first ball. In such a situation, someone else had to take the responsibility of finishing the match and Jadeja showed that he has learned to play with Dhoni for a decade. Jadeja was the true hero of the match who turned the match on the last 2 balls.
