The grand finale for IPL season 3 exceeded by far the word 'grand' itself!

Preceding the nail biting final that was to ensue between three times semi finalists Chennai Super Kings (CSK), and home team/majority's favorite Mumbai Indians (MI) at DY Patil stadium in Navi Mumbai, was a welcome marked by prominent some!

Amidst glitteratti, paparazzi, the cheers of about 50,000 fans, specks of yellow and a sea of blue, the game was set to commence. Prior to this came tinsel town's entertaining brigade. While former Miss Universe Sushmita Sen was spotted among the crowd, Bipasha Basu took a round of the ground doing her sensuous jiggles to superhit tracks from Race and All The Best!

Shahid was landed from a hovering craft to shake his famous leg to Chaska from upcoming release Badmaash Company, and later to 2009's energizing chartbuster Dan Te Nan.

Grammy and Oscar winner A.R.Rahman got the spectators on their feet with his Jai Ho performance, sharing the stage with Pussycat Dolls. In culmination of the colorful opening ceremony to the final game of IPL season 3, music maestro Rahman cast the spell of his melody with Maa Tujhe Salaam (Vande Mataram) - a perfect way to end the splendor, and an inspiring way to kick start the game!

With CSK lifting the trophy for this season (IPL 2010), skipper M.S.Dhoni's team has finally accomplished what was missed by a mere run against Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra's Rajasthan Royals in IPL-I. Having been the only team to have made it to the semi final stage in all three seasons so far, the consistency of the team has finally paid off and trophy has convincingly been bagged by the supposed underdogs against the voted best contenders of IPL - III.

Three cheers for the Men in Yellow!

I fully agree with scarlett.lady
Just cause MI lost, blaming it all on Match fixing is not fair. That only shows that people can't even accept defeat sportingly. I'm sure if MI would have won, there would be no question of match fixing right? It's all favoritism here. CSK deserved to win, and I'm happy they did.

Congratulations CSK!!! They are a great team and I am quite fond of them since IPL- 1.They have always been the most consistent ones. Even though MI were good, CSK...and not to forget Dhoni's thoughtful decisions as captain during the crucial overs paid off. Truly deserved IPL-3 trophy ...way to go CSK!!!

sure am - you may have to admit i'm not talking like a half ignorant lame fan here! CSK have been consistent in the literal sense of the word, for all three seasons, and have displayed every victory comes as a team - MI on the other hands, for all the favoritism they garner, have been minority show so many times... you notice dhoni and raina cause they hold the scores? how bout giving morkel's twisted 19th over a thought? if dhoni could make that win against KXIP in the last over, so could Pollard against CSK if he had lasted... Murli held them at a stringent 17 in 4 overs when the starter run rate was about 8p.o. ... its little things put together that work fantastically ... CSK caught some easy to miss catches, and MI dropped some in hand ones... Sachin fell short at the brink of a half century on what could have been a six and a continuance of an innings that they could well win ...

the game was neck to neck until the end and its a sorry excuse for fans to blame things on fixing ... yes things are commercialized, and there is no debating the dirty games that go on behind the scenes... but if we're going to live with the idea that thats all there is to any game we watch, its a pity to even watch sports ... as an MI fan, if mumbai had won would it be any less fixed in your opinion?

basically, lets keep prejudice and fixing apart - they are two entirely separate issues...
