IPL Final: Mumbai Indians celebrate record fourth IPL title

"Can you guys see the blood on his knee", Harbhajan Singh wrote.

"I don't think it was one of those years where we played really good cricket and we got into the finals", said Dhoni. "He got 6 stitches after the game. got injured while diving but continue (sic) to bat without telling anyone".

Mumbai thus defeated arch-rivals CSK for the fourth time in the season.

"That's our @srwatson33, nearly pulled it (off) for us last night", he added.

His belligerent knock left Chennai needing nine runs off Malinga's last over but Watson attempted to retain the strike off the fourth delivery and was run out before Shardul Thakur was trapped LBW from Malinga's final delivery.

Indian batting legend Sachin Tendulkar, an advisor to the Mumbai team, nervously watched the finale and said Dhoni's run-out was a "key moment".

While commentator Sanjay Manjrekar, based on one angle, vehemently called for Dhoni to be given out, other commentators were not so sure and thought the benefit of the doubt and the inconclusive nature of the replays would see the third umpire rule in the batsman's favour.

He put on 39 runs in the next four overs with Hardik Pandya and finished the innings in a blaze of glory by smashing two boundaries off the last two balls.

Quinton de Kock (29) had earlier provided a brisk start before Mumbai lost both de Kock and captain Rohit Sharma with the score on 45. Despite going for some sixes, Deepak Chahar managed to get back into the game by pocking 3/26.

Watson nearly proved the saviour in the cliffhanger chase, playing a sensational 59-ball knock in an nearly one-man show as CSK tried to chase down Mumbai's 149 on Sunday at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. He had a tremendous average of 69.20 and strike rate of 143.86.
