‘2 coincidences’ that made Dhoni’s Super Kings IPL champions
The final match of IPL 2021 is to be played on 15 October. Only then will it be decided who will be the next champion of IPL. One team of the final of the tournament is decided as Chennai Super Kings, while the name of the second finalist will be seen on 13 October. But, all these are just formalities now. Because the new champion of IPL has already been stamped. And that team is Chennai Super Kings. With this team with the yellow jersey, this was possible because of the coincidence of 2 grounds with Dhoni.
Of course, now you must be thinking about those two coincidences related to Dhoni who proved or proved CSK to be the champion. So let us tell you that both these coincidences are amazing. And, when these coincidences have happened, the team has become the champion. It is not that such coincidences are related to Dhoni’s team only. Rather, such an equation has been created with other teams as well, so they have emerged as the champions of IPL.
This coincidence that made the champion connected after 10 years
Now you must be thinking about those two coincidences. So let us introduce you one by one. The first coincidence that was associated with Dhoni was the last and first time 10 years ago. The year was 2011 and the match was of Qualifier One only. Chennai’s team had got a target of more than 170 for direct entry in the final, which they achieved 2 balls ago. In the innings that Dhoni played while chasing that target, he had hit 1 six and 3 fours. That year Dhoni’s team became the IPL champion.
Dhoni played the same innings while chasing a target of 173 runs in Qualifier One played against Delhi in 2021. He scored 18 not out off 6 balls, which included 1 six and 3 fours. Now the question is whether history will repeat itself after 10 years.
Who defeated Delhi in Qualifier One, he became the champion
See another coincidence related to Dhoni becoming the champion of CSK. Whenever Delhi’s team has lost qualifier one, the team that defeated it has emerged as the IPL champion. In 2012, Delhi was defeated by KKR in Qualifier One, and in 2020, Mumbai Indians defeated Delhi Capitals in Qualifier One. The team that defeated Delhi on both these occasions has become the IPL champion. This time CSK has done the same thing. Dhoni’s Super Kings have defeated Delhiites in Qualifier One. But he is yet to become the IPL champion.
