It was after CSK beat KKR to win the fourth title. During the celebrations, MS Dhoni said, “job done”. This pretty much summed up MS Dhoni’s long spell as CSK captain as he has done the job quite superbly for CSK since the inaugural season.
MS Dhoni started his journey as CSK in IPL 2008 season. However, CSK lost to Rajasthan Royals in the final. Despite a heartbreaking defeat, CSK bounced back and won the first title by beating Mumbai Indians in IPL 2010 season.
CSK recorded their second title by beating RCB in IPL 2011 final. The yellow army won their third title by beating Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2018 final. Their fourth title came in IPL 2021 season when CSK beat KKR in the final. MS Dhoni will go down as one of the most successful captains in the IPL. Under his captaincy, CSK won four titles.
