Chennai Super Kings (CSK) captain MS Dhoni

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) entered their record 9th IPL final on Sunday night after beating Delhi Capitals in Qualifier 1 by four wickets. The three-time champions silenced all their critics by becoming the first team to qualify for the finals this season. 

The way MS Dhoni finished the contest in the last over brought back the old memories. In his 18-run unbeaten knock, he smashed three boundaries and a six to help CSK to reach the target of 173 with three balls to spare. 

Except in 2020, CSK has qualified for every IPL play-off. This year many players pulled back and performed brilliantly to win matches. CSK finished second in the league stages by winning 9 out of 14 games. 

Chennai will now play finals against Kolkata Knight Riders on October 15 in a bid to clinch the title for the fourth time.
