Johnson key to Mumbai Indians success, says Sharma

It was thriller last over game in which Johnson defended 11 runs, 4 runs were required of the final ball to which Sunder was trying to steal away 3 run but was run-out.

The victory was sealed with the final ball of the game, bowled by former Australia global Mitchell Johnson, when Pune could only get two runs when they required four for the win. However, brilliant bowling from Lasith Malinga, Jasprit Bumrah and Mitchell Johnson strangled Pune towards the latter part of the innings.

Rising Pune Supergiant chose the huge occasion of an IPL final to modify the meaning of the original saying and slumped to an embarrassing defeat by a solitary run after having a choke-hold on the match for the most part against Mumbai Indians on Sunday.

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

Mumbai won their record third IPL title and Parthiv believes it was the unity and humility that helped them win. His replacement, MS Dhoni, couldn't find a rhythm, and as he and Smith struggled, the run rate kept climbing.

Rohit ran towards his team mates from the boundary line, and all the players were jumping in joy at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad.

Trump's continued search for new FBI chief seen as chaotic
Trump allegedly demanded Comey's "loyalty" pledge and urged Comey to drop his ongoing investigation into Michael Flynn. Trump undercut that narrative just days later by saying he dismissed Comey in part because of the " Russia thing".

Mumbai Indians posted a low total of 130 runs on the board. Pune needed 47 runs off last 5 overs.

Fleming said his team failed to build bigger partnerships even though Ajinkya Rahane and captain Steve Smith had put up a good stand.

And the drama of the occasion appeared to overcome Buttler, who lost his towel while celebrating the victory back at home.

Two runs came off the next ball but with four needed off the last ball, Daniel Christian was run out sending the Mumbai players into wild celebrations. Mitchell Johnson is a proven customer.

Despite ending up on the losing side in a low-scoring IPL final against Mumbai Indians on Sunday night, Pune had a relatively successful campaign, especially after finishing a lowly seventh in their inaugural season past year.

Mumbai Indians made a paltry 129 for eight after electing to bat, and Rohit said they were 30-40 runs short of what would have been a winning score on this pitch here.
