After Mumbai had put 149 on the board helped by useful contributions from Kieron Pollard (41) and Quinton de Kock (29), Chennai Super Kings (CSK) could only muster 148 as MI sealed the win off the final ball of the match.When Shardul Thakur was given out LBW on the last ball off Lasith Malinga, with CSK still needing 2 runs to win, the stadium erupted and so did the MI players and support staff. Fans who were watching the final from far away joined them in venting out their joy/frustration at what was a nerve-wracking finish.Sachin Tendulkar, who has been associated with the franchise from its berth was also left overjoyed at the win. Later he told the host broadcaster that MS Dhoni’s run-out in the final was the ‘key moment’ of the match.”The key moment was Dhoni’s run-out. But also in patches when Bumrah bowled those critical to even out Malinga’s one poor over was also crucial. And the last over, thought Malinga finished the game out beautifully. And as for the final, we knew we defended 129 in the final two years ago, so we were confident. I think we have a terrific team – with experience and youth. As Mahela (Jayawardene) said, Rahul Chahar stands out the way he’s bowled this season. Just fabulous. And don’t forget Hardik. We were in the corner in many games this season, and Hardik bailed us out many times,” said Tendulkar.advertisementOn the other hand, CSK and Dhoni are now left with 3 titles to their name and now lie 2nd on the list of the teams with most IPL wins.Also Read | IPL 2019 Final: Mumbai Indians beat Chennai Super Kings in last-ball thriller to win 4th titleAlso Read | MS Dhoni becomes most successful wicketkeeper in IPL historyFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
