Mumbai Indians wins fourth IPL title

Share

After 59 games and seven weeks, the 12th edition moves to the summit clash where Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians meet on Sunday.

Shane Watson's 80 off 59 balls almost took MS Dhoni's team home, but the Australian allrounder got run out in the last over as Mumbai restricted Chennai to 148-7.

For Chennai, Deepak Chahar accounted for three batsmen while Shardul Thakur and Imran Tahir took two wickets each. Faf du Plessis scored a brisk 26 runs off 13 balls, as he hit three fours and a six, but it was his strike partner Shane Watson who led by example.

Chennai plundered 20 runs off the 16th over and as many from the 18th when Watson smashed Krunal Pandya for three successive sixes.

The officials/NHL determined that Gabriel Landeskog did not tag up at the blue line prior to the puck entering the offensive zone. Pavelski was unable even to travel to Colorado for Games 3 and 4 but got back on the ice while his teammates were away last week.

As soon as the match finished, captain Rohit could not hold his emotions and celebrated wildly with the team members.

Those who have seen Chahar bowl a total of 81 overs in an Irani Cup game for Rest of India on a placid Jamtha track, swore by his talent.

Mumbai Indians are expected to bring in Ben Cutting in place of Jayant Yadav, while Chennai Super Kings might look to replace Shardul Thakur with either of Karn Sharma or Mohit Sharma.

The third umpire took a lot of time in making his decision and ultimately ruled it in the favour of the bowling team. Tahir was also the first 40-year-old to appear in an IPL final.

Mumbai won both its league matches against Chennai this season and also won the Qualifier 1 against Dhoni's side before making it 4-0 today.

To defend the title, MS Dhoni and CSK will have to ensure that their top order handles MI's bowling line up well if they want to win this contest. Watson hadn't done badly this year, heading into the chase with a couple of half-centuries.

But MS Dhoni knows this stage better than anyone else. Watson had almost pulled off the chase for CSK; when 5 were needed from the last three balls, he squeezed a wide yorker, completed one run easily, but following a misunderstanding with Ravindra Jadeja set off late for the second run, that led to his run out. Like a true teammate, he went up to de Kock, wrapped his arms around the young South African's shoulders and said something so comforting that it made de Kock, who was in a state of shock, smile.
