The Story of most thrilling IPL Final

by Sahir Usman Nov 30, -0001 • 00:00 AM

With 11 runs to get in the final over to be bowled by Johnson, the target was still looking quite achievable with well set Steve Smith (51) at the crease. Manoj Tiwary struck a four off the first ball making it more simpler for the team, 7 requiring on 5 balls. However, Tiwary and Smith were dismissed in the next two deliveries.

On the final ball of the innings, Pune needed 4 runs. Daniel Christian strikes well but failed to clear the boundary and his partner Washington Sundar was run out while attempting a third run, resulting in a one-run victory for Mumbai. Johnson took 3 wickets for Mumbai.
