Johnson leads Mumbai to third IPL title

MUMBAI Indians won their third Indian Premier League title on Sunday, defeating Rising Pune Supergiant by just one run in a dramatic final which went to the last ball.

Supergiant lost three wickets in the last over - bowled by Mitchell Johnson - to be restricted to 128-6 after Mumbai Indians scored 129-8.

Supergiant needed 11 runs off the last over but Johnson dismissed Manoj Tiway and topscorer captain Steve Smith (51) off successive deliveries after conceding a boundary off the first ball.

But Johnson conceded just 5 more runs off the next three deliveries as Dan Christian was run out off the last ball while going for the third run to tie the match.

 

Earlier, Krunal Pandya's 47 off 38 balls lifted Mumbai Indians after a collapse to 79-7 in the 15th over.

Jaydev Unadkat (2-19) rattled the top order with two early wickets and then Adam Zampa got the prized wickets of captain Rohit Sharma (24) and Kieron Pollard (7).

It was Mumbai Indians' first win against Supergiant this season after losing both its league matches and also the first qualifier.
