Mumbai Indians win IPL 2017 against Rising Pune Supergiant

During the match, an old lady was shown again and again on the giant screen during the last phase of Rising Pune Supergiant's innings and Twitteratis credited her for Mumbai Indians victory. "Whenever you´re defending a total like that, the first thing you have to do is believe", said Sharma. They have always done the job wherever they've played. Parthiv pulled straight into the hands of Shardul Thakur at mid-on, while Simmons gave a return catch to Unadkat who dived low to the left - and Mumbai were reduced to 8/2.

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.

However, their bowlers then restricted Pune to 128 for six in response, with Dan Christian run out off the final ball as he and Washington Sundar tried to scramble the three runs required to force a super over. Rahul Tripathi, find of the season for RPS, got a wrong decision and scored only three runs.

Fleming said his team failed to build bigger partnerships even though Ajinkya Rahane and captain Steve Smith had put up a good stand. "Just disappointing to lose, it wasn't the fairy tale finish we wanted", Smith said.

The victory was sealed with the final ball of the game, bowled by former Australia global Mitchell Johnson, when Pune could only get two runs when they required four for the win.

The left-armer took an impressive 19 wickets in the tournament, the fourth highest wicket taker.

Sharma broke the shackles with the first boundary of the innings on the opening delivery of the sixth over. Pune needed 47 runs off last 5 overs.

RPS had needed two big overs at the back-end and though they managed 12 off the 19th, these two ageing warriors summoned all the guile gleaned from years of worldwide cricket to ensure that didn't happen.

Pune improved their tournament record but may have played their last game of the cash-rich league.

It was a case of so near and yet so far for Pune, who will not be there next year.
