2008 Final: Chennai Super Kings vs Rajasthan Royals
It all began a decade ago with CSK being one of the contenders even then. It was a contest between the strong Dhoni-led side and the underdog team, captained by Shane Warne. The final of the inaugural season of unarguably the biggest cricket league in the world lived up to the expectations as the match was decided on the very last ball.
Chennai batted first to post a decent total of 163 backed by some good performances from Raina, Parthiv, and Captain Dhoni. The Royals' bowling did pretty well with Yusuf Pathan leading the charge with three wickets and an economy rate of less than 6 in his 4 overs.
In response, Pathan once again led the charge by scoring the only fifty of the match to ensure Man of the Match award and a victory for his side in the biggest game of season.
