Mumbai Indians defeated the mighty Chennai Super Kings to lift their 4th IPL Title in a thriller at Hyderabad.
MI got to a respectable total of 150 due to the late blitz of Kieron Pollard and a few big shots from Hardik !!
Though it looked a small total on that wicket, the Chennai got off to a good start but lost their way in the middle overs in the web of Rahul Chahar and their fast bowlers as they dried up the runs!!
In the end, CSK required 62 runs off 30 balls and despite Watson’s wonderful knock, they lost the game by just 1 run at the end!!
At the post-match presentation after all the talking being done with MSD, Manjrekar asked MSD about the plans of the next year and how CSK will make a comeback after this defeat.
To this, he replied: “There is hardly time left with the WorldCup around the corner and that’s our first priority. Once it’s done, we can go back to the drawing board and see what went wrong and we can do about it!”
After this Manjrekar asked M.S: “Will he be there(IPL) next season?”
To this Thala replied “Hopefully yes!” with a smile.
With the track record MSD has on being unpredictable, you never know when he is gonna retire! And with the style of reply we got from him, we should expect only the best and hopefully like he said to see him in the IPL Next season.
