"We need to go back and reflect as to how we reached the finals".

"We backed our ability and our skills, and that's probably why we got rewards".

West Indies batsman Pollard's unbeaten 41 off 25 balls, alongside Quinton de Kock's 29 helped set up the Mumbai total.

Earlier, Faf du Plessis (26) and Watson gave Chennai a steady start before Krunal got the former stumped by de Kock by luring him to come down the wicket. The risky Pandya made his opponents pay smashing Thakur for two sixes in the same over before getting out. Jasprit Bumrah showed his class with a brilliant effort in the death overs finishing with figures of 2/14 in his four overs before Lasith Malinga bowled a decisive final over to defend 9 runs off it and win the title for MI. He smashed eight fours and four sixes to power the Chennai innings through.

SHOCKING footage captured the moment passengers sprinted for their lives away from a jet plane as it erupted into a fireball. The video emerged of Sheremetyevo airport ground workers, laughing and taking pictures of the burning plane.

As per usual, this IPL final was keenly anticipated.

For Chennai, Deepak Chahar accounted for three batsmen while Shardul Thakur and Imran Tahir took two wickets each.

Chennai Super Kings have lifted the coveted IPL title thrice - in 2010, 2011 and 2018 and they would look to clinch yet another title this year.

Venezuela's Guaido would probably accept US military intervention if proposed: paper
Guaido invoked the constitution to assume an interim presidency in January, arguing Maduro's 2018 reelection was illegitimate. Lopez was detained for anti-government protests in 2014 and had been under house arrest for two years before he was freed.

Mumbai Indians: 149 for 8 in 20 overs.

The biggest moment came of the game in the 13th over when Dhoni was run-out trying to steal an extra single. "Both (teams) committed mistakes, and eventually the winning team was the one that committed one mistake less".

"And the last over, I thought Malinga finished the game out beautifully".

On paper, Mumbai Indians are a far better side than Chennai Super Kings but it is the beauty of the Final that the team who plays well on that day wins the trophy, regardless of other factors. Sanjay Manjrekar, the commentator on presentation duty, concluded his interview by telling Dhoni, "well done, and we'll see you again next season". The Australian fitness trainer feels that there is no difference in the work ethics of players from New Zealand, Australia, South Africa and the Indian squad, they all sweat the same.
