Mumbai Indians batsman Kieran Pollard felt that the team showed a lot of character at key moments and played as an unit as they got the better of Sunrisers Hyderabad by one run to win their third Indian Premier League (IPL) title here on Sunday.

Opting to bat, Mumbai were left reeling at 79/7 in the 15th over, but Krunal Pandya's 47 off 38 deliveries helped them reach 129/8. During the chase, Pune kept wickets at hand but took it deep as they found it tough in the final five overs.

Mumbai Indians defeated Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) in a low-scoring final to win the Indian Premier League (IPL) title on Sunday. In a match that went right down to the last ball, Mumbai registered a one-run victory in front of packed stands at the Rajiv Gandhi International stadium. This is Mumbai's third IPL title.

Chasing a target of 130 runs, Pune could only manage to post 128/6 in their 20 overs. Australian fast bowler Mitchel Johnson was the most successful for Mumbai with figures of 3-26, while young pacer Jasprit Bumrah also played a crucial role, returning figures of 2-26 in four excellent overs. Veteran Sri Lankan pacer Lasith Malinga also bowled well and was unlucky not to get a wicket. He conceeded just 21 runs in his four overs.

On paper, Pune have the upper hand, considering that the Steve Smith-led side defeated Mumbai thrice in this season, including a comprehensive 20-run win in the crucial first qualifier earlier this week.

Chinnaswamy Stadium on Friday.

KKR were in the dumps by the seventh over, losing half of their side for just 31 runs on the board. Putting up a paltry 107 on the board, it was always an uphill task for the men in purple and in the end Krunal Pandya's 45 off 30 balls took Mumbai home comfortably.
