IPL 2021: MS Dhoni’s CSK completes 5 wins a row for the first time since 2014- MS Dhoni’s CSK on Wednesday created history by completing 5 consecutive wins in IPL 2021. Ruturaj Gaikwad’s blistering 75-run knock and a fifty from Faf du Plessis helped Chennai Super Kings (CSK) to defeat SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) by seven-wicket at the Arun Jaitley Stadium on Wednesday. With this win, CSK moved at the top of the IPL 2021 points table.

It has been 6 years since CSK last won more than five or more games in a row. From winning the IPL title in 2018 to getting banned for two years and failing to make it to the IPL playoffs last year, the 3-time champions have turned back the clock and look exceptional this season. They have already become the favourites to win IPL 2021.

IPL 2021: MS Dhoni’s CSK completes 5 wins a row for the first time since 2014

CSK have bounced back in style after losing the opening match. They are on a roll with 5 straight wins.

The last time Chennai won 5 consecutive matches was in 2014.

They registered six successive victories and had finished in the playoffs.

CSK’s biggest winning streak was in 2013 when Dhoni-led won side seven games on a trot and had finished runner-ups.

Chennai, along with Rajasthan Royals, was banned from IPL due to match-fixing allegations. They made a comeback in 2018 and clinched their third IPL title the same year. Post return, Chennai’s biggest streak came in 2019 when they won four games in a row and also played the finals.

Suresh Raina, although is due for a big knock, has looked in good touch.

Ambati Rayudu has donned his new role well and adds an extra flavour to otherwise explosive middle-order.

Imran Tahir and Moeen Ali both have looked good. While Tahir, who has just one match to his name so far, impressed everyone with a two-wicket haul and a direct runout, Ali has been CSK’s answer to their No.3 conundrum.
