CSK returned to the league this year after a gap of two years due to suspension.
A special victory deserved a special celebration and for occasions like this, West Indian Dwayne Bravo is your man. "It was good that I got a couple of boundaries to hit and get on par to take it from there", the 36-year-old added. Thus, the IPL 2018 finale is not likely to experience any weather hindrance as the chances of rain are not during the match. Apart from losing his last three finals with CSK, Dhoni was also part of the losing Rising Pune Supergiant Side in 2017. Notable misses are Ambati Rayudu, Kane Williamson, AB de Villiers, Sunil Narine and Umesh Yadav. After 16 overs, CSK was at 154/2 while it then needed only 25 runs off 24 balls with 8 wickets in hand.
Shane Watson top-scored in the IPL Final as CSK won the title.
But it turned out to be a one-sided affair after that as Watson alone hammered 117 runs off just 57 balls as CSK cantered home in the 19th over with eight wickets to spare.
Making a comeback after serving two years of a ban, the Yellow Brigade stood up to their reputation of being one of the best team in the cash-rich league.
Opposition spokesman urges focus on new rules that take effect today

On days when their batting fails to click, it's the bowling that rescues them - as we have seen on a number of occasions.
Williamson, a last-minute replacement for Australia s Warner as the Sunrisers captain, is up against the Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings in the final in Mumbai on Sunday. The team has claimed victory in every situation, be it chasing a big total or defending a little total.
Chennai were 20 for one after five overs and looking down the barrel when the burly opening batsman made a decision to open his arms. Suresh Raina was out for 32 runs in Carlos Brathwaite's bowling at 13.3 over.
He did that and more, surviving against the excellent Bhuvneshwar Kumar - who bowled four wicketless overs, including a maiden, for just 17 runs - in the powerplay before blossoming against the less-experienced members of Hyderabad's attack. Both the teams also topped the points table after the group stage with 18 points each.
Some may have dubbed CSK as the proverbial Dad's Army, after the two-day auction in January, but a 36-year-old received the IPL Trophy for the third time in nine years of the franchise competing.
