Indian Premier League: Mumbai Indians beat Chennai Super Kings in final

Suryakumar Yadav celebrates his half-century on Tuesday – Deepak Malik  Sportzpics for BCCI

However, Watson attempted to retain the strike off the fourth delivery and got run out and Thakur was trapped leg before wicket off the last ball.

Windies all-rounder Kieron Pollard smashed an unbeaten 41 off 25 balls to set up the Mumbai Indians total.

Inbetween those two Bumrah overs, Watson kept Chennai in the hunt by lofting left arm spinner Krunal Pandya for three successive sixes in the 18th over before Malinga returned and quashed Chennai's hopes. The South African captain registered his 12th IPL fifty with the help of seven fours and one six but soon fell to New Zealand paceman Trent Boult.

Chasing 150 here in a thrilling summit clash on Sunday, Shane Watson's brilliant 80 went in vain as CSK fell agonisingly short of winning their fourth IPL title.

Kings XI Punjab opener KL Rahul again had a terrific season with the bat and scored the bulk of the runs for Punjab.

Mumbai Indians shared a video from their official Twitter handle and Paul Chapman can be seen sharing the fitness routine of the players before the upcoming IPL final. It now stands at eight.




It has been quite a journey for Mumbai Indians in the tournament so far. This final will ensure that one of the team gets one up over the other to earn some bragging rights. Couldn't have asked for more after 31 last-over finishes this season. It is still the only franchise among the current 8 to have not played in a final.

The wicket extended the 35-year-old Malinga's record as the all-time best IPL bowler with 170 wickets from 122 games. While Jaspreet Bumrah won the man of the match award, Keiron Pollard won the most stylish player of the match. He was the player of the match in Qualifier 1 past year when CSK defeated SRH.

Shane Watson, meanwhile, was grateful for the faith CSK had reposed in him.

Watson and du Plessis were both stranded. This is the 4th time that Harbhajan Singh has managed to pick up at least 15 wickets in a single IPL season.

The third umpire took a lot of time in making his decision and ultimately ruled it in the favour of the bowling team. It was, of course, his first in T20 cricket. Watson then hit Malinga for a hat-trick of fours to trim the equation to 42 off 24 balls.
