HYDERABAD, May 13: It was funny game in which the two teams kept passing trophy to each other is how Chennai Super Kings skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni described the IPL final, in which Mumbai Indians prevailed by one run, here Sunday.

The see-saw game kept the fans enthralled as the winner-takes-all contest went to the wire and was decided in the last ball of the tournament.
Initially, it was CSK which had en edge but Mumbai Indians came back in middle overs. Again it was Shane Watson who seemed to have tilted it in CSK’s favour but incredible pace bowling by Jasprit Bumrah and Lasith Malinga finally swung it in Mumbai’s favour.
“Today was one game we should’ve done slightly better. It was quite a funny game, we were passing the trophy to each other. Both committed mistakes, and eventually the winning team was the one that committed one mistake less,” said Dhoni after CSK fell short by just one run, chasing 150. – PTI
