And that's it from us.
...
They started the season without a win to their name in the first two years of the tournament and they finish by beating every team and winning the title. If that isn't a fairy tale finish, then I don't know what is. It has been a splendid effort by the team and they have done it, thanks in large part to KB Arun Karthick and Varun CV, who were instrumental all season, just as they were today.
...
While KB will claim all the plaudits and rightly so for his unbeaten 75 and his 117-run partnership with Shijit Chandran that helped seal the win for Madurai, it was set up by the pacers. Abhishek Tanwar finished with a four-fer and Lokesh Raj picked up three while Varun CV finished with figures of 4-1-9-2.
