Mumbai Indians lifted their record of the fourth Indian Premier League 2019 trophy because they defeated Chennai Super Kings by 1 run in the final on Sunday.

Mumbai Indians defeated Chennai Super Kings by 1 run in the IPL 2019 final on Sunday, winning their fourth Indian Premier League title. Chasing 150 runs, CSK could only add 149/8 in 20 overs and reduced to one run.


Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma won the final toss and decided to bat first. Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma decided to make a change in the playing eleven for the summit clash against defending champion Chennai Super Kings, in which Michael McCallan was replaced by Jayant Yadav. CSK did not make any changes

First innings:

Chennai Super Kings performed disciplined bowling under pressure to ban MI for eight at 149 in IPL final. After batting, Mumbai scored equal number of runs against Kieron Pollard's unbeaten 25-ball 41. Deepak Chahar (3/26) was once again performing brilliantly and was therefore fellow fast bowler Shardul Thakur (2/37).

The spinners, Harbhajan Singh (0/27) and Imran Tahir (2/23) also played an important role in limiting the Mumbai Indians.

2nd Innings:

When it gets tough, Shane Watson is going! The former Australian all-rounder chased the 150-goal target for CSK, he too alone. But in the end, his 59 balls of 80 runs was less, Lasith Malinga did his best in the last over. Jaspreet Bumrah was once again performing brilliantly with the ball, as he gave only 14 runs in his four overs and took two wickets. In this over, he dismissed Dwayne Bravo, but scored nine runs due to poor game.

In the last over CSK needed 9 runs to win. Malinga kept his lines clean and troubled CSK batsmen from the yorkers. With Watson's run out, the balance in Mumbai's favor worsened and Thakur's LBW run out came to an end with a thrilling one run from Mumbai.

Game changer:

The final thriller had a lot of turn. MS Dhoni's controversial run out in the 13th over was one of those, which started unrestraining MI. But Watson put Lasith Malinga with three fours and a six to save CSK. Later, he made three sixes for the Kunal Pandya to pursue Chennai's hopes.

But the biggest game changer came in the last over - when Watson was run out for 80 runs, while he tried to steal the double. The next batsman on the strike, Shardul Thakur had to go straight to Malinga. They took a double to bring the equation in two. But a slow ball that changed Malinga's game gave Thakur LBW out and CSK lost the match by 1 run.

Scorecard: Mumbai Indians (Pollard 41 *, D.Coc 29; Chahar 3/26); Chennai Super Kings (Watson 80, Plessis 26; Bumrah 14/2).
