CSK - champion of the champions!!

All smiles!
Chennai Super Kings are on a roll! They were runners-up in the first edition of the IPL (2008), were in the semi-finals in 2009 and won the tournament in 2010. And now just five months after lifting the IPL trophy, they've lived it up once more, in the second edition of CLT20 as CSK drowned Warriors by 8 wickets!

Last night, CSK thrashed the Warriors in what seemed to be a match set right by the bowlers.  M.S.Dhoni is one-big-lucky guy (thanks to Mrs.Dhoni!) The venue was Johannesburg - the same venue where the lad led India to its 2007 World T20 title.

Spinners Muttiah Muralitharan (3/16) and R. Ashwin (2/16) took five wickets as Chennai restricted Warriors to 128 for seven after the South African team elected to bat at the New Wanderers Stadium.

With the most runs (294 off 6 matches) of the tournament, Murali Vijay took home his "golden bat" and R. Ashwin was awarded the Golden ball (the guy deserves it for his most timely wicket of the dangerous Davy Jacobs)

Opener Mike Hussey and Murali Vijay with an opening partnership of 103 runs made sure the trophy was for theirs to lift and with Dhoni hitting the final runs, CSK finished 132/2 in 19 overs.

You won't believe all the gold they struck that day! CSK owner gets richer by USD 2.5 million, which is almost double that of what was won in IPL-3. Warriors (not far behind) won USD 1.30 million. 11 awards were given off to CSK alone!

C'mon! Their winning streak isn't due to any LSD, it's all because of MSD!!
