One of the most dominant teams of the Indian Premier League (IPL) Mumbai Indians (MI) yet again won another IPL Title defeating Delhi Capitals (DC) in an all-important final. This is their fifth IPL trophy lifted by Rohit Sharma and company.
Delhi Capitals (DC) who qualified for the final for the first time in IPL history badly failed to put up a good fighting first innings score as they struggled to score 156-7 in limited 20 overs, thanks to captain Shreyas Iyer who played a much needed 60 runs innings.
Excellent from @surya_14kumar. Realised it was the captain's mistake but showed no emotion as he sacrificed his wicket in an IPL final.

MI while chasing a very modest total of 157 runs chased it down very easily in 18.4 overs. The highlight of the final was Surya Kumar Yadav who sacrificed his wicket for captain Rohit Sharma knowing it was Sharma’s mistake but he saved his captain by throwing his own wicket in the final.
Harsha Bhogle, one of the best commentators in India, expressed his views about Surya Kumar Yadav, “ Excellent from SuryaKumar Yadav realized it was the captain’s mistake but showed no emotions as he sacrificed his wicket in an IPL final”. Harsha Tweeted.
Consequently, Rohit Sharma played a lovely and captain’s knock as he scored 68 runs and lifted another IPL trophy.
