Fans, as expected, were waiting curiously.
Three times champions
Mumbai Indians beat Rising Pune Supergiant narrowly by 1 runs in the finals of the 10th edition of the final at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. It was an epic ‘come from behind victory.’
The match, touted as the ‘Maharashtra Derby,’ witnessed a sensible bowling performance from Mumbai Indians after facing a sort of batting failure. After being able to set a small target of 130 runs, RPS stayed in the contest till the final over before Mitchell Johnson swung things in their MI’s favour and defended 11 of the last over.
The mystery revealed
Triple H has kept his promise and announced today that the WWE title for Rohit Sharma & Co. was one its way. This news was a delightful special gesture towards the franchise.
Het tweeted: @MIPaltan @ImRo45 as promised, the @WWE Title is on its way… Congratulations! @WWEIndia
