Drama in the final over as Kieron Pollard refuses to take the strike umpire fails to spot a wide delivery!
No, Raina's drop didn't cost much as Chahar removes Pandya and Rahul Chahar in a single over.
Hardik cnt be playing with same tactics in every match...bowlers are sharp too...cldnt use the lifeline he got...CSK is brilliant with thr bowling tactics tonight— Samip Rajguru (@samiprajguru) May 12, 2019
SURESH RAINA DROPS HARDIK PANDYA! Game-changing moment?
Fans in awe of Dhoni's captaincy. Nothing new there!
Every trick MS has tried has worked out today.. MI have fallen into his plan completely.. last 5 overs with Hardik and Pollard he has two overs of Tahir to factor that..— SMM (@Shhy10) May 12, 2019
The MS Dhoni IPL?
Shardul's catch is getting plenty of praise.
WHAT A CATCH by Shardul Thakur! 👏🏻🙌🏻— Nikita (@nikitaarons) May 12, 2019
He was literally sprinting to catch the ball. 🔥#IPL2019Final
WHAT A CATCH BY SHARDUL THAKUR! Caught and bowled Krunal Pandya and Mumbai are in deep trouble at the moment.
IMRAN TAHIR STRIKES IN HIS VERY FIRST OVER! The spinner only needs one wicket to go past Rabada for the purple cap.
Tahir and Rabada now have 5️⃣0️⃣ wickets between them. #IPL2019— Saurabh Malhotra (@MalhotraSaurabh) May 12, 2019
Ishan Kishan is slowly shifting gears after openers fall in quick succession for MI.
Ishan Kishan can take the game away from CSK in no time. Need his wicket now! Come on CSK!— Arjun Ashok (@arj_90) May 12, 2019
The CSK skipper continues to make records!
MS Dhoni's trust in Chahar, even after the bowler went for three sixes in a single over reaped rewards!
Master stroke from Dhoni... getting Chahar back after being hit for 22 off 2. Chahar gets Rohit!— Sanjay Manjrekar (@sanjaymanjrekar) May 12, 2019
So this is the thing....MI have all boxes ticked, but CSK have Dhoni!🙏#IPLFinal2019
Both the openers are back in the pavilion in quick succession. End of powerplay, MI 45/2 in 6 overs.
And suddenly, rampaging openers gone, match acquires an altogether different hue, MI under pressure— Cricketwallah (@cricketwallah) May 12, 2019
Quinton de Kock has provided a fiery start to Mumbai Indians, as he hit three sixes in an over off Deepak Chahar! MI 30-0 in 3 overs.
Sachin Tendulkar is in the town. The Mumbai Indians mentor expects a close contest between the two sides!
MS Dhoni has made no changes to the side. No tweaking with the winning combination!

Solitary change as Ro mentions!— Mumbai Indians (@mipaltan) May 12, 2019
