CSK skipper MS Dhoni hails KKR after IPL 2021 final

Speaking after lifting the IPL 2021 trophy, CSK skipper MS Dhoni praised runners-up KKR for their incredible fightback in the tournament. Dhoni went to the extent of stating that KKR deserved to win IPL 2021 more than anyone else.

During the post-match presentation, Dhoni commented:

“Before I start talking about CSK, it's important I talk about KKR. For the position they were in after the first phase, it is very difficult to come back and do what they have done. If any team deserved to win the IPL this year, I feel it was KKR. I think the break helped them.”

KKR were languishing in the bottom half of the IPL 2021 points table, with just two wins from seven games. However, they launched a tremendous fightback in the UAE leg to reach the playoffs. They then beat Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Delhi Capitals (DC) in the Eliminator and Qualifier 2 respectively before going down to CSK in the final.

CSK’s previous IPL triumphs came in 2010, 2011, 2018. They are the second most successful IPL franchise after Mumbai Indians (MI), who have lifted the crown five times.
