After CSK won the IPL 2018 final in grand style beating SRH by 8 wickets, Dwayne Bravo and MS Dhoni challenged each other for a race.
Chennai Super kings returned to the IPL this year with fans cheering from all corners. They had been in wilderness for two years and the fans could not wait to have them back. Although it was expected that their popularity may take a dip but as absence makes the heart grow fonder, the ban actually worked in their favour.
CSK took the shortest road to the finals, defeating SRH in the Qualifier 1. However, SRH came right back on track after beating KKR in the Qualifier 2. The Kane Williamson led team locked horns against Chennai Super Kings in the finals of IPL 2018 in the Wankhede Stadium on Sunday, only to bow out ultimately.
After the match, Dhoni and Bravo challenged each other in a race in which they ran three runs between the wickets with bat in hand. Here is the video:
CSK were criticized for picking up an old side but they came out with flying colours: “We talked a lot about age but what matters is the fitness. Rayudu for example is 33, he’s someone who is fit, covers a lot of ground. Even if he plays a few games where he spends a lot of time in the ground and in the field, he never complains. So, it is the fitness that really matters more than the age aspect. What captains want is players who move well in the field. It doesn’t matter which year a player is born in, whether you are 19 or 20 – you have to be agile.
“You have to accept your shortcomings. For example if I push Watson to stop a single, there is a very good chance that he’ll burst his hamstring and won’t be available for the next game. So what you tell yourselves is that they have to commit and try, but there’s no point getting injured for a single.”
