It was his knock of 57 not out from 35 that lit up CSK’s road to glory in its final against Sachin Tendulkar led Mumbai Indians.
Channai Super Kings become the first team of IPL to win back to back finals in the history. The defending champions held the title against the batting titans of the tournament RCB. CSK’s batting unit was lit up by the presence of Mr Cricket, Michael Hussey, who played some important innings throughout the tournament. Hussey and Murali Vijay’s 159 run opening partnership against the Royal Challengers Bangalore was the main reason for CSK defending the title.
