Gulf News – Dubai: Chennai Super Kings have shown that it’s not age, but fitness and willingness to go all out for a win that really matters after their spectacular comeback in the 11th edition of the Indian Premier League.
- There were seven players over the age of 30 in the Chennai team — including the wily captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who in 40 days will also turn 37.
- As Chennai was led by an ageing Dhoni, they were being addressed by a few as Dad’s Army.
- Overall as captain in the IPL, (including his win as Rising Pune Supergiants skipper) Dhoni has won 94 matches.
- When pointed out that Sunday night saw his 89th win as Chennai captain, Dhoni jokingly said: “A lot of people talk about stats, so tonight is 27th, my jersey number is seven and this is the seventh final for us.
