Dhoni eyes Chennai clean-out after losing IPL final

Suryakumar Yadav celebrates his half-century on Tuesday – Deepak Malik  Sportzpics for BCCI

Bumrah bowled a clinical four-over giving away just 14 runs and picked up two crucial wickets as Mumbai clinched their fourth IPL trophy.

Delhi also extended another unfortunate record. Back in 2013, Rohit Sharma was appointed as the captain of the franchise after Ricky Ponting flattered to deceive.

Watson was aided by some poor fielding from MI, who put him down not once, not twice, but three times.

With standout 20-year-old Ishan Kishan in the middle-order and the Pandya brothers - Hardik and Krunal - as well as big-hitting Kieron Pollard, Mumbai finished top of the table after a slow start to the season.

The Sri Lankan fast bowler, who has taken more wickets than anyone else in this tournament's history, had been out of sorts for his first three overs in Hyderabad.

"We need to go back and reflect as to how we reached the finals". Lot of emotions. Nine of the last over was probably a position we thought we will never get to after the start we had in the first five overs.

A half-century from Shane Watson has helped the Chennai Super Kings beat Delhi Capitals by six wickets and set up an Indian Premier League final against Mumbai Indians. The risky Pandya made his opponents pay smashing Thakur for two sixes in the same over before getting out.

The thriller saw Mumbai edge out Chennai on Sunday after Australian Shane Watson was run out going for an unlikely second run in the final over to end a blistering 59-ball innings at 80. He smashed eight fours and four sixes to power the Chennai innings through. Dwayne Bravo was the pick of the bowlers for CSK with figures of 2/19.

Mumbai, owned by Nita Ambani - who is married to India´s richest man, Mukesh Ambani - has the bragging rights against Chennai this season after beating them three times, in the league and playoffs. Neither was able to make a consistent case this year, but 12 months down the line, who knows how the land will lie. Mitchell McClenaghan bowled with plenty of fire, butdidn't have any wicket to show for his good work with the ball.

"The key moment was Dhoni's run-out", he said.

He said if it was amusing how both the teams kept on passing the trophy from one team to the other in the summit clash.
