It was a strange year for both Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings. MI, who are generally slow starters, were quick to get off the blocks this time around and were looking dominant from the beginning itself. On the contrary, Chennai Super Kings, who generally looked a class apart, were not that clinical this time around.
However, by the end of the league stage, both teams were equal on 18 points and proceeded to Qualifier 1, where Mumbai registered a comfortable 6-wicket victory.
The losing captain MS Dhoni was on-point with his reading of the final: "Looking at it as an IPL final, I think both the teams, it was quite funny: we were just passing the trophy to each other. We committed a lot of mistakes, and Mumbai Indians also did the same. At the end of the day the winning team was the one that committed one mistake less than the other team. I think it was a very good final, it went close, last ball, so couldn't have gone better."
With this, MI became the only team to have won the IPL four times and Rohit Sharma became the only player to register 5 wins in IPL finals. Jasprit Bumrah was given the Man of the Match award for his gold-standard figures of 4-14-2 at an economy of 3.50. Andre Russell was crowned the Most Valuable Player of the tournament.
