Are you happy about who won what or do you think someone else was a much better fit for certain titles?

The entire league, in term’s CSK’s perception, seemed to be a good concoction of perfect family-friendly matches. Where the kids of the players were always in the front row to cheer for their dads and then making headlines all around the Internet for being the cutest. This tells one a lot about how CSK went ahead with their strategy for the league. There are tons of players in the team who were always surrounded by questions regarding their age, and this win might stop it all from happening again, at least we hope so.
