Mumbai defeated Chennai Super Kings by 41 runs in the final at the Eden Gardens here on Sunday to be crowned as Champions.

Chasing a monumental 202/5, the Super Kings could only manage 161/8 from 20 overs.

For Mumbai, it was Rohit Sharma (50) and Lendl Simmons (68) who helped them post such a formidable total, while for Chennai the only notable contribution came from the bat of Dwayne Smith (57).

“It has been a great journey. I couldn’t have asked for more. It was important to show character. We knew we had guys who could do that. This is a sweet victory because we came from nowhere, with people writing us off,” Rohit said at the post match presentation ceremony.

The skipper who was also awarded the man-of-the-match for hi 26-ball 50 said, “It’s always been good here. Whenever I have come here, I have taken happy memories back. It has been a very good journey. To bounce back from that situation we found ourselves in the first half is very rare.” (IANS)
