GT vs CSK: “It’s a 2-month hard slog,” says MS Dhoni after Chennai Super Kings win
Chennai Super Kings skipper MS Dhoni spoke about the win against GT. He said it was hard work for two months and everyone contributed throughout the tournament. He said:
“IPL is too big to say it’s just another final. There used to be 8 main teams, now it’s 10. I won’t say it’s just another final. It is a hard work of 2 months. Everyone has contributed. Yes, the middle order doesn’t have much of a chance. The GTs are a fantastic team and they have chased very well, so the idea was to put them in.”
Chennai Super Kings will now be seen in action when the final takes place on Sunday (May 28) at the Narendra Modi International Stadium in Ahmedabad.
