Chennai Super Kings Wins The CLT20 Final Match

Indian cricket captain, Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Sunday led his IPL club, Chennai Super Kings to a convincing 8-wicket victory over local side, Eastern Cape Warriors in the grand final of the Champions League Twenty 20 tournament at the New Wanderers Stadium here in South Africa. Winning the toss and batting first, the Warriors were restricted by spin bowlers Ravichandran Ashwin and Muttiah Muralitharan to 128/7 in the stipulated 20 overs. Nothing much was left for the Chennai batsmen after that.

Powered by a 103-run first wicket partnership between Mike Hussey and Murali Vijay, CSK steadily finished off the task, with an over to spare.

Today’s win completed Chennai Super Kings’ season double, with both the IPL and CL T20 title in its coffers.
