Winning by a run
Earlier in the game, it was the Mumbai Indians camp that had opted to bat first after having won the toss. They started off poorly with their openers back in the hut cheaply. Wickets fell in clusters as MI succumbed to 79/7 at one stage. A fighting 47 from Krunal Pandya saw them post 129 on the board. Later, in the run chase, RPS seemed to be cruising to the target.
However, a sudden collapse in the end and a dramatic final over from Mitchell Johnson saw Mumbai Indians win the match by just one run. A fifty from the opposition skipper went in vain and the MI fans erupted in joy to lift the silverware.
