IPL 2019, MI vs CSK: Highlights
Winning captain Rohit Sharma collects Rs 20 crore | Sharma: "Throughout the tournament we played some good cricket which was the reason we qualified at the top. We planned to split the tournament into two parts, every thing we did as a team we got the rewards for them. We have a squad of 25 players, everyone came in at some stage and did the job; the support-staff as well."
MS Dhoni collects Rs 12.5 crore | Dhoni: "As a team we had a good season. But we need to go back and reflect on how we reached the finals. It's not one of those years where. The middle order wasn't great, and in IPLs it is very funny as to how both these teams are only passing on the trophies from one team to the other. Both teams made a lot of mistakes, they made one lesser mistake."

Akash Ambani | Team owner:
"That's Lasith Malinga for you. He's the only bowler to have done it for 10-12 years now. He's a special man in our team. I think it's the environment we create around the team, we treat the entire team as a family. I must credit the efforts of the coaching as well as the back-room staff."
Sachin Tendulkar speaks:
"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 said, Rahul Chahar stands out the way he's bowled this season. Just fabulous."
Mahela Jayawardene speaks:
Coach Mahela Jayawardene: We trusted the group. Great decisions from Rohit to go back to the experienced bowlers. We love close games but we don't want any more though.
Ishan Kishan speaks:
"I think this is the best part of T20. Mumbai Indians are known to make comebacks and we did just that. We lost a few moments, but Hardik got us back with a good over. We created half-chances and that is the most important thing for us. Bumrah is an excellent bowler - I knew he would bowl ten in 12 balls, when I asked him while standing at point how many overs he had to bowl, he said two, and I was confident we were going to win after that."
Lasith Malinga speaks:
" If we conceded one run, then we wouldn't win, and I wanted to win so I got the wicket.I wanted to go for the win. Hence, I went for my wicket-taking ball - the slower ball."
Hardik Pandya speaks:
"Everyone kept telling us that defeating CSK after winning three would've been difficult. We kept telling ourselves. We kept believing that we could make it 4-0. Before I made my debut, I had the Mumbai Indians wallpaper on my phone."
MI win the match by just 1 run! Incredible end to the game as Malinga gets an lbw off the last ball of the match. Mumbai Indians will now lift their fourth IPL crown. CSK- 148/7 (20 overs). Magnificent campaign by CSK but player for player MI were the superior side. Overall, they were the best team in the tournament.
Runout! Watson is gone for 80 and CSK still need 4 runs from 2 balls
Quinton de Kock has let the ball go for four byes! Can you believe it? CSK need 9 off the last over
GONE! Bravo is caught behind off Bumrah! Is there a twist in the tale? CSK- 133/5, Chennai need 17 runs in 10 balls
HAT TRICK OF SIXES
SIX! SIX! SIX! Watson has smashed Krunal Pandya for three huge sixes in a row! WOW CSK- 132/4, need 18 runs in 12 balls
Another drop catch
Dropped! Rahul Chahar is the culprit as Watson gets a reprieve for the second time in the innings! Meanwhile, 20 off the Malinga over has turned the momentum back in favour of CSK| CSK- 110/4, 16.2 ovs
Dhoni run out
A direct hit on overthrow & Dhoni is run-out for 2. Huge moment in the match. Ishan Kishan hits the bulls eye! Dhoni will be unhappy with this! CSK- 82/4, 12.4 ovs | There was some confusion as replays showed the batsman not out from side angle while straight camera angle showed it out. Ultimately it is the correct decision.
Watson sweeps and a blunder by Bumrah allows the ball to go for a four. Mumbai cannot afford this, not at this stage. Instead of a single it is now four more to the scoreboard.CSK- 79/3, 12 ovs | Chennai need 70 runs in 46 balls
WICKET! Jasprit Bumrah's short-ball gets rid of Ambati Rayudu for 1. Dhoni walks in amidst huge cheers. Rayudu was late on the hook and a feather touch goes through to the keeper. CSK lose two quick wickets - is the momentum shifting? CSK- 73/3, need 77 runs in 57 balls
In the balance now. This is the partnership. This is the man. https://t.co/TG3KzgX0Cd— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) 12 May 2019
Chahar's trapped Raina in front! The umpire has raised his finger but he's reviewed it. Three reds! Top of the middle! Chahar strikes. CSK- 70/2, need 80 runs in 64 balls
DROPPED! Malinga drops Watson, the centurion in the previous IPL final, on 31! How costly will it be for the Mumbai Indians? Plenty of drama in that Mitch over! CSK - 70/1, 9 ovs
Raina reviews successfully after being given out caught behind off McClenaghan - no spike on ultra-edge. CSK - 56/1, 6.3 ovs
Over 1 -- 7 runs
Over 2 -- 5 runs
Over 3 -- 7 runs
Over 4 -- 14 runs
Over 5 -- 5 runs
Over 6 -- 15 runs
Bit of a flier here for CSK, who've definitely had the better of the powerplay despite losing du Plessis. What is it with Watson and T20 finals - 2018 IPL, 2019 PSL and now in the IPL? Powerplay Ends | CSK -53/1, 6 ovs
Stumped! Faf du Plessis is the first CSK wicket to fall. Krunal Pandya celebrates. Pandya fired it wide and Faf couldn't get the bat down in time. Smart work by Quinton de Kock behind the stumps. CSK- 33/1, 4 ovs
Watson survives! A direct hit at the bowler's end would've been curtains. Terrible call for one run as the ball went straight to Ishan Kishan's hands at cover. Lucky break for Chennai Super Kings again. CSK -19/0, 3 ovs
Krunal Pandya mixing his pace well and two dots to Watson. But the Aussie cuts loose and gets a boundary. Krunal just pitches it a tad too full and Watson cashes in. CSK - 12/0 , 1.4 ovs
