Wankhede Stadium ‘lucky’ venue for Chennai Super Kings this IPL

Vastavam web: The iconic Wankhede Stadium has been a ‘lucky’ venue for the Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings, who lifted the IPL trophy for the third time after beating Sunrisers Hyderabad in the summit clash here.CSK played thrice at this venue and emerged victorious in all the three matches.Unlike the past two occasions when CSK pulled off victory from the jaws of defeat, Australian Shane Watson made the challenging 179 run chase look like a walk in the park with his match-winning 117 not out.The side then came to Mumbai for the crucial Qualifier 1 against the Sunrises Hyderabad on May 22 and they emerged victorious as South Africa skipper Faf Du Plessis shone with the ball in a low scoring thriller in company with local boy Shardul Thakur.
