Mumbai Indians win the IPL 6 beating Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by 23 runs at the Eden Garden, Kolkata. After 6 years Mumbai Indians win the title of IPL. Before the start of the final everyone thought Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will win the IPL easily for the 3rd time because they also beat Mumbai Indians (MI) in the first qualifier. According to the bookie CSK was the most favourite for final. But all the hopes of CSK went in smoke. CSK is not able to manage 149 runs in the final.

Mumbai Indians win the toss and elected to bat first and they lost their top 3 wickets on 16 runs and seemed to be that they will not score 140 runs also. Its Kieron Pollard who blitz 60 runs from just 32 balls and help Mumbai Indians to reach 148 runs. A respectable score not a competitive score. Apart from Pollard, Ambati Rayudu and Dinesh Karthik has scored 37 and 21 runs each. For CSK, Dwayne Bravo took 4 wickets spending 44 runs and he was the most successful bowler from the CSK side.

It never seems to be big score for CSK as they most number of match winning batsman. The result of the match will come in the very first over of the play when Lasith Malinga take back to back 2 wickets of Mike Hussey and Suresh Raina. In the next Mitchell Johnson take another wicket of Badrinath. CSK was 3/3. Raina and Badrinath was out on duck (0). I understand what will be the result of the match. Mumbai is going to win the IPL 6. And what I thought it happens at Eden Garden. CSK lost wickets at regular interval. From CSK only MS Dhoni scored runs from 45 balls. None other can made an any effort or showed any gesture to play well.

Sachin Tendulkar mentioned in his speech that he waited 21 years for the World Cup but title of IPL comes after 6 years. He also announced his retirement from IPL. Kieron Pollard win the Man of the Match for his outstanding performance in the final and Shane Watson of Rajasthan Royals' win the Player of the series.
