Collective effort responsible for Mumbai Indians' IPL-10 win

30 May 2017, 05:25 | Kristine Mills

The heart-wrenching final saw the old warhorse Mitchell Johnson bowl his heart out as he scalped two wickets off the last over and 3 wickets overall. The win was special for MI skipper Rohit Sharma who is the only captain to win a hat-trick of titles.

"I am happy I have finished as the team's highest run-getter but the most important thing is to win trophies and being a part of this set-up", Parthiv said on Monday, a day after helping Mumbai Indians win a dramatic final against Rising Pune Supergiant at Hyderabad. "It was fantastic to have him throughout the season", the Mumbai skipper said.

Manoj Tiwary smashed the first ball for four but was caught off the second, with Smith then caught on the boundary from the next ball.

Captain Smith top-scored with 51 but his 50-ball effort didn't help and they failed to keep up with the required run rate as a result.

He followed it up with a sterling show in the final against Rising Pune Supergiant, accouting for the unsafe Mahendra Singh Dhoni and not letting Steven Smith run away with the game in the 17th and the 19th over.

Rahane took the role of aggressor with Smith biding his time on a tricky surface, but Pollard dived forward to catch the opener off the bowling of Johnson to leave Pune on 71-2 in the 12th over.

Two runs came off the next ball but with four needed off the last ball, Daniel Christian was run out sending the Mumbai players into wild celebrations. Mitchell Johnson is a proven customer.

While Mumbai's earlier title wins came in 2013 and 2015 were driven by strong individual performances, Rohit believes this year's IPL title was a product of united group work with intelligence.

Batting first, Mumbai lost 7 quick wickets for 79 in just the 14th over of the game. Ajinkya Rahane 44 runs.

Chasing 130, Pune batsmen faltered on a slow track to end on 128-6 at Hyderabad´s Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium. "160 on this wicket probably would have been a match-winning score", he said.

Commenting on the wicket, Fleming remarked that the wicket was two-paced and both the teams struggled to play aggressive game.
