Mumbai Indians (MI) innings

The Mumbai Indians openers, skipper Rohit Sharma and wicket-keeper batsman Quinton de Kock provided a firing start as they put 45 runs partnership for the opening wicket before Marcus Stoinis dismissed De Kock for 20 runs (12 balls; 3 fours and only six) in the 5th over of that innings.

After that blow, Rohit and the next batsman Suryakumar Yadav maintained that momentum. They set up another 45 runs partnership for the second wicket but a misunderstanding in the 11th over costed their partnership as Suryakumar gifted his wicket to save his captain. Before that run-out dismissal, Suryakumar scored 19 runs off 20 balls (only four and only six).

In the next over of that run-out, Rohit completed his fifty in 36 balls. Rohit and Ishan Kishan then produced another 47 runs partnership for the third wicket.

Anrich Nortje took one more wicket as he dismissed Hardik Pandya (3) when the scoreline was tied. But on the very next ball, Mumbai Indians secured the record fifth IPL title with a single. Ishan Kishan remained not out on 33 runs off 19 balls (3 fours and only six).
