What A Thrilling Finish!!

4

Mumbai Indians created history by becoming the first team to win the IPL for a record three times, when they beat Rising Pune Supergiant, the team they had lost to thrice earlier in the tournament, by one run in the final in Hyderabad on Sunday night.

MI defended a modest 130-run target on the back of a magnificent bowling effort from Mitchell Johnson who, playing his fifth game of the season, successfully defended 11 off the last over and finished with 3/26 to outshine an equally impressive knock from Steve Smith (51). This is also the first time since 2008 that a team finishing first in the Points Table has lifted the trophy.
