All going just as I expected. I've seen Mumbai get into so many holes throughout this IPL. Everyone made them favourites, not me. They are choking on the big day and Pune should get yet another win against them. And let's be fair to Pune, they are playing fabulously well and Steve Smith did his homework.

Mumbai will still win.

This is Mumbai we are talking about.

They are the meanest in cricket.

They've been in this sort of situation umpteen times in the Ranji Trophy.

Pune is a joke of a side, with jokers like Rahane and Tiwary masquerading as T20 players.

Congratulations in advance, Mumbai Indians!

Mind you, I dropped Krunal from my final fantasy team so perhaps I should be laughing at myself. Of course Mumbai can still win. Because anything can happen.

Pune is a joke of a side.

And Mumbai has superb bowlers too.

See how they step up today.

Sorry, Pune, you're just not good enough.

You might've beaten Mumbai in the mickey-mouse games but this is the big one.

It's a final, that too against Mumbai.
This isn't as easy as some probably think.

Of course any side other than RPS would have romped that. Still it made for a decent finish to a disappointing IPL overall. And they can be proud of their efforts, Rahane in particular, as he only masquerades as a t20 player. See y'all next year. :popcorn:

18.6
Bumrah to Smith, 2 runs, another high full toss angled in at off stump. Smith swivels and gets it over square leg this time, but again the connection isn't ideal. It's off the high pat of the bat and clears the fielders in the circle. He's annoyed, thinks that should be a no-ball on height. He's brought up his fifty by the way
-------------

It doesn't matter but this deserved to be called a no-ball. It looked definitely above the waist.

Anyway, congratulations to Mumbai Indians.
What a terrific effort to defend.
Bumrah, Malinga - outstanding!
Krunal's contribution with the bat was crucial.

Pune, if you can't get 129 (while losing just 6 wickets), you've got to look at why you batted so slowly. Even given quality of attack, you made it difficult for yourself.

If you analyse the Mumbai Indians´ side, you´ll find they have plenty of T20 specialists.
Pollard, Malinga, Bumrah, the Pandya brothers...

These guys have either chosen to concentrate on T20, or earned their stripes primarily in this format.

Contrast with guys like Rahane and Manoj Tiwary who are essentially longer format players who have moved into T20.
It shows.

Got to give it to Ambani. He has scouted well and bought very smart.

What a crazy sport, what a crazy final! Did not give a penny on MI, even with the class they have. They batted awkwardly, let the pressure get to them, instead of attacking right from the start. (Ayudu ahead of Rana, on what merit? on the last season??) Krunal was key - I want "The Brothers P" perform for India. Middle overs in the 2nd innings super important. And with all those fielding mishaps what was the crucial issue to win them the game? Tidy bowling, in one word, JaspitBumrah. They say catches win matches, so MI should have lost twice today, they were shambolic in the field. Still they took the right catches when it mattered, Partiv, Pollard and Rayudu. Well done, boys! Funny moment: Pollard, Sharma trying to advise MJ how to and where to and what to. His body language is dismissing them as if he was saying: "Leave me alone, u lot, u brought us into that mess, should haven given me at least 30 runs more - just leave me alone and let me steamroll by balls into the furniture."

When you go into the last over, having SEVEN wickets in hand and still needing 11 to get, it shows you've not used your batting resources properly.

For once, I can excuse Rahane. When you are chasing only 130, you don't need to go all guns blazing from ball one.
You can afford to play at a steady rate and get your team within sight of the target - which Rahane did.
In this particular situation, he is not to blame.

But the rest...

I think Pune just got overconfident.

Even after 10 overs, the RRR was 7.20.
So they had 60 deliveries to get 72 runs in!

11 -> 7 (Krunal)
12 -> 6 (Mitch)
13 -> 2 (Karn)
14 -> 4 (Krunal)
15 -> 6 (Malinga)
16 -> 14 (Krunal)
17 -> 3 (Bumrah) - wicket of Dhoni
18 -> 7 (Malinga)
19 -> 12 (Bumrah)
20 -> 9 (Mitch) - 3 wickets (mind you, they got a 4 off the first delivery, so needed just 7 off 5).

Overs 16 & 19 had a 6 each, but look at the rest.

It was very good bowling, no doubt, but I can't help feeling Pune was too casual, leaving it for late.

I don't understand this "I'm proud of Pune" nonsense.

I know this is a politically correct statement but it's more honest to say "We blew it! We snatched defeat from the jaws of victory."

It was great to see my favourite allrounder Mitch Johnson win it for MI !

TBH, Malinga and Bumrah set it up for him.

I was a little puzzled with Pune's chase. Pune blew the match.
