Chennai Super Kings defeated Kolkata Knight Riders by 27 runs to lift its fourth IPL trophy. It was a stunning comeback since the team had not qualified to the playoffs in IPL 2020. In this article, we take a look at how Twitter reacted to CSK’s stunning comeback to win the 4th IPL title.
CSK wins its 4th IPL title
CSK won Qualifier 1 to straightway make an entry into the final encounter. However, KKR had to win two games to get to the summit clash. Having reached the final game, KKR struggled to give a tough fight to CSK as the MS Dhoni-led unit gained a handsome win by 27 runs.
It was the CSK openers who set up the game in the first innings. While they shared an opening partnership of 61 runs, the likes of Robin Uthappa and Moeen Ali took charge in the middle-overs to ensure that CSK never lost momentum. In the bowling innings, CSK was aided by a twin-strike by Shardul Thakur that changed the course of the game. Eventually, the required rate was too high, and KKR succumbed to the pressure.
Twitter reacts to the stunning comeback
CSK was the first team to get eliminated from IPL 2020. It was for the first time in the franchise’s history that it was happening. MS Dhoni had then said that his team would come back stronger. CSK has done just that and they now have four trophies in their cabinet. While they reached the playoffs comfortably, they proved that they were a class apart with a convincing win in the finals. Back in 2018, too, CSK did a similar accomplishment by winning the trophy soon after they returned from the ban. Twitter was elated by this performance from CSK. Here are a few reactions regarding this below:
Fantastic FOUR! 🏆 🏆 🏆 🏆Advertisement

After the setback last season, not many gave @ChennaiIPL a chance this year. But it is that ability of @msdhoni to convert adversity into opportunity that Chennai played outstanding cricket and are deserving champions. Whistle Podu #IPLFinal pic.twitter.com/YV5KuntmFU
