IPL 2021: WATCH – Sakshi and Ziva’s adorable hug to MS Dhoni after CSK’s fourth IPL title win

The 14th edition of Indian Premier League (IPL) finally came to an end with Chennai Super Kings (CSK) clinching the title with a comprehensive 27-run victory over Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the final at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Friday (October 15).

It was the fourth IPL title for CSK under the captaincy of legendary MS Dhoni, who has been leading the franchise since the inception of the T20 league in 2008.

Like always, Dhoni wasn’t over the moon after the triumph but his family was on cloud nine. Soon after the game ended, Dhoni’s wife Sakshi and daughter Ziva were seen giving him a hug by coming on the ground.

The adorable moment was caught on camera and the video is now doing the rounds on social media.

Here’s the clip:

Coming to the IPL 2021 final, CSK piled up a massive 192/3 in their allotted 20 overs on the back of opener Faf du Plessis’ 86 off 59 balls. Moeen Ali (37*), Ruturaj Gaikwad (32), and Robin Uthappa (31) also made significant contributions with the bat.

With the ball, CSK restricted KKR to 165/9 despite the 91-run opening stand between Shubman Gill (51) and Venkatesh Iyer (50). Shardul Thakur (3-38), Josh Hazlewood (2-29), and Ravindra Jadeja (2-37) starred with the ball for Chennai in the all-important match.
