Mumbai Indians clinch thrilling IPL final against Supergiant

IPL 2017 Final RPS vs MI I had faith in my bowlers during death overs says Rohit Sharma

In the final, they won a last-ball thriller against Rising Pune Supergiant by a single run.

"To defend such a modest total, the first thing you need is self-belief and I told the boys we can do it". They've always done the job wherever they've played. Ambati Rayudu, who started his career at Hyderabad was brilliantly run-out by RPS skipper Steve Smith, who only had one stump to aim at.

Mumbai Indians Jasprit Bumrah celebrates the wicket of M S Dhoni during the IPL 10 Final match between Rising Pune Supergiants and Mumbai Indians in Hyderabad on Sunday. They defeated their nemesis Rising Pune Supergiant by 1 run in a thrilling final which went to the climax and kept spectators on their toes till the last delivery. With 7 runs required off 5 balls, former Australian pacer Mitchell Johnson held his nerves and took his side to an improbable victory.

The two banned franchises - Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals - are all set to come back in the next edition of the league, having served two year suspensions for their involvement in 2013 spot-fixing saga.

That's what these three fast bowlers (Malinga, Bumrah and Mitchell Johnson) did, particularly at the death overs. On Sunday night, Bumrah picked the key wickets of Rahul Tripathi and MS Dhoni to derail the RPS innings as they fell just one run short of MI's 129. "Just disappointing to lose, it wasn't the fairy tale finish we wanted", Smith said.

"We just couldn't get over the line".

Unadkat got Pune off to a dream start, dismissing Parthiv Patel (4) and taking a magnificent low catch off his own bowling when Lendl Simmons (3) misjudged one that stuck in the pitch three balls later in a magnificent third over that went for only two runs.

Stokes - whose $2.16 million contract broke the IPL signing record for a foreign player - scored 316 runs in 12 matches, with a highest of 103 not out, and took 12 wickets.

Krunal Pandya proved to be the saviour for the Mumbai team, hitting a valiant 47off 38 balls.

At the end of the first innings, the cup was nearly in the hands of Pune. Manoj Tiwary hit boundary off the first ball and got out on the very next ball. Pune relied mainly on the singles and twos before the wicket of Rahane dented them.

It was a case of so near and yet so far for Pune, who will not be there next year.
