IPL 2017 Final: Mumbai Indians lift IPL trophy for third time, beat Pune 1 run
Hyderabad : Mumbai Indians turned out to be the cricket team lifting Indian Premier League (IPL) season 10 trophy, beating Rising Pune Supergiants in Hyderabad on Sunday.
In a match that went right down to the last ball, Mumbai registered a one-run victory in the packed Rajiv Gandhi International stadium.
Australian fast bowler Mitchel Johnson was the most successful for Mumbai with figures of 3/26, while young pacer Jasprit Bumrah also played a crucial role, returning figures of 26/2 in four excellent overs.
Veteran Sri Lankan pacer Lasith Malinga also bowled well and was unlucky not to manage a wicket. He conceded just 21 runs in his four overs.
Pune skipper Steven Smith led from the front scoring a fighting half-century in a losing cause.
He notched up 51 runs off 50 deliveries with two boundaries and an equal number of sixes before falling in the last over.
Earlier, braces by bowlers Jaydev Unadkat, Adam Zampa and Christian enabled Pune to restrict Mumbai to 129 for eight.
Mumbai's top and middle order batsmen put up a horrific show against the disciplined bowling from Pune and the former were left reeling at 79/7 in the 15th over. All-rounder Krunal Pandya's 47 off 38 deliveries pulled Mumbai out of the hole.
