At last, Mumbai Indians lifted their 4th IPL trophy in Hyderabad on Sunday with great pride and joy. After Mumbai Indians had put 149 runs on the board, Chennai Super Kings could only muster 148, losing the match with just one run. It was definitely a nerve-wracking finish.
Sachin Tendulkar, who has been associated with the franchise of Mumbai Indians, told the host broadcaster that MS Dhoni’s run-out in the final was the ‘key moment’ of the match. He also went on to praise Bumrah’s crucial bowling moments. And the last over, Malinga finished the game out beautifully, said Sachin.
However, Dhoni’s run pout moment has now become a debate, calling it a false umpire decision. Dhoni walked in to bat with the score on 73/3 and he was declared run out when Ishan Kishan knocked the stumps with a direct hit. Dhoni’s bat was judged to be on the line. The Umpire took a long time and eventually, he decided not to give the advantage to the batsman.
During the presentation, Dhoni said that the team had a good season. “Today it was very funny as to how both these teams were only passing on the trophy from one team to the other,” he added. After settling as runners-up in the IPL 2019, Chennai Super Kings fetched a prize money of Rs. 12,50,00,000.
