After 2 months of enchanting cricket, the world’s most competitive domestic tournament, the Indian Premier League finally ended. The Chennai Super Kings defeated the Gujarat Titans in the IPL 2023 final by 5 wickets.
Devon Conway who overshadowed the brilliant performance of 96 runs by Sai Sudharshan rightly adjudged to be the Man of the Match for his crucial match-winning knock of 47 runs from 25 balls in the final while the victory saw CSK claim a record fifth IPL title. Now they have equaled the Trophy count with their arch-rivals Mumbai Indians.

Cricketers such as Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sai Sudharshan, Tilak Varma, Jitesh Sharma, Rinku Singh, Noor Ahmad, and Shivam Dube, earned plaudits for their brilliant performances during the tournament.
