Devon Conway and Ravindra Jadeja were the standout performers as Chennai Super Kings clinched their fifth IPL title in a thrilling encounter. After a rain delay interrupted the second innings, Conway and Ruturaj Gaikwad stepped onto the field with a clear mission: launch an aggressive assault on the Gujarat bowlers. Conway, displaying his attacking prowess, smashed a blistering 47 runs off just 25 deliveries before being dismissed by Noor Ahmad. His explosive innings set the stage for a historic victory.
In a post-match presentation, Conway expressed his nerves during the rain delay but credited former Australian batsman Mike Hussey, who played a similar role for the franchise. Jadeja’s remarkable cameo in the final moments sealed the triumph and earned him accolades. The Kiwi opener, however, was named the Player of the Match for his crucial contribution at the top of the innings. Conway regarded this victory as the greatest of his career, adding to the significance of the team’s achievement. The win showcased the exceptional teamwork and determination of the Chennai Super Kings.
“It was a long time to wait, very nervous but Rutu (Gaikwad) and I plotted how we’ll go about it. Personally, is the greatest win in my career. IPL final, doesn’t get bigger than that. Lot of credit to Mike Hussey, fellow left-handed player. Nice to be in his shoes,”
