CSK captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni lifted Ravindra Jadeja in celebration after the left-hander guided the team to their fifth Indian Premier League (IPL) title on Tuesday. Dhoni couldn’t contain his excitement and immediately hoisted Jadeja when he reached the dugout following the match-winning performance.

The game seemed to be slipping away from CSK, but Jadeja’s heroic six and four off Mohit Sharma’s final two deliveries turned the tide in their favor. As the yellow army rushed onto the field, Dhoni remained seated in the dugout with his eyes closed, savoring the moment.

This iconic image of Dhoni lifting Jadeja will forever be etched in the records of cricket history.

With this victory, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have now equaled Mumbai Indians’ record of lifting the IPL trophy five times. Despite an incredible knock by Sai Sudharsan (96 off 41) and Wriddhiman Saha (54 off 39), Gujarat Titans failed to defend their title in the rain-affected clash and CSK emerged as the IPL 2023 winner.

Apart from Sudharsan and Saha, contributions from Shubman Gill (39 off 20) and Hardik Pandya (21 off 12) propelled Gujarat Titans to a formidable total of 214/4 in 20 overs. However, CSK’s chase got off to a slow start, with the team managing only 4 runs off the first three balls before rain interrupted play.

After a significant delay, the game resumed, and CSK’s revised target was to score 171 runs in 15 overs according to the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern (DLS) Method. Ruturaj Gaikwad (26) and Devon Conway (47) wasted no time, amassing 74 runs in just 6.3 overs. While wickets fell quickly for CSK, with Ajinkya Rahane (27), Ambati Rayudu (19), and Dhoni (0) departing, Jadeja’s resilience ensured a resounding victory.
