After a month-and-a-half of sometimes intense, sometimes mediocre action, IPL 2018 finally got its winner.
Chennai Super Kings pummelled Sunrisers Hyderabad by eight wickets to clinch the title a third time, after having lost a few finals.
Shane Watson was in sensational form as he bludgeoned his way to a smashing hundred, in the process leading Chennai to victory. While Hyderabad finished the league stage as table toppers, CSK were undoubtedly the most consistent team throughout the tournament as finished on top deservedly. They even put up a finale performance worthy of winners.
As Chennai bask in the glory of their win, a number of players bid goodbye to the tournament on Twitter. Take a look:
