Mumbai win IPL title off final ball

With standout 20-year-old Ishan Kishan in the middle-order and the Pandya brothers - Hardik and Krunal - as well as big-hitting Kieron Pollard, Mumbai finished top of the table after a slow start to the season.

Sharma said Mumbai's bowling played a key role throughout the tournament.

We all go through tough moments in life when everything looks dark and gruelling.

"We backed our ability and our skills, and that's probably why we got rewards".

Displaying the swashbuckling batting performances that West Indians are traditionally known for, Pollard smashed 41 unbeaten runs off just 25 deliveries, in an innings that featured three fours and three sixes.

Chennai Super Kings: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (C), Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Murali Vijay, Ravindra Jadeja, Dhruv Shorey, Chaitanya Bishnoi, Rituraj Gaikwad, Dwayne Bravo, Karn Sharma, Imran Tahir, Harbhajan Singh, Mitchell Santner, Shardul Thakur, Mohit Sharma, K M Asif, Deepak Chahar, N Jagadeesan, Scott Kuggeleijn. Thakur, who was slammed for a six over deep mid wicket on the previous delivery by the left-hander, bounced back with a well-executed short ball and was seemingly pumped after the dismissal as he exacted his revenge.

Their captain Shreyas Iyer is 23 and wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant, the likely successor to Dhoni in the national side, just 21. Watson batted through the Chennai innings until he was run out in the final over, smashing four sixes and eight fours.

Mumbai Indians defended 149 in 20 overs to lift their fourth IPL title in Hyderabad. Neither was able to make a consistent case this year, but 12 months down the line, who knows how the land will lie. "There is nothing against the bowlers, but the batsmen could've done better".

Batting first, Mumbai Indians posted 149/8 on the board on a batting turf. "Both are on their toes from ball one".

Chennai Super Kings skipper MS Dhoni suggested his ageing side needs a shake-up after they lost a nail-biting Indian Premier League final to arch rivals Mumbai Indians.
