Tendulkar hails Jasprit Bumrah as 'World's best bowler'

IPL 2019 CSK vs DC

Mumbai Indians players celebrate a wicket against Chennai Super Kings during their nail-biting Indian Premier League final on Sunday.

Chennai extended their record for the most IPL finals played by a franchise.

"The crucial part was to keep getting wickets", said Dhoni at the post-match presentation here on Friday. The match will begin at 7:30 PM.

IPL 2019 season final is going to take place between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings tonight.

Whatever the outcome may be, the final in Hyderabad will add another memorable chapter to their longtime rivalry. Interestingly, it has not lost an IPL final in the last 9 years. Shane Watson scored 80 runs under pressure, but his efforts went in vain.

The game went down to the last ball where Lasith Malinga trapped Shardul Thakur in front to bring the curtains down on the encounter.

Earlier, Faf du Plessis (26) and Watson gave Chennai a steady start before Krunal got the former stumped by de Kock by luring him to come down the wicket.

Kieron Pollard smashed an unbeaten 41 off 25 deliveries for Mumbai while paceman Jasprit Bumrah returned figures of 2-14 from his four overs.

Leg-spinner Imran Tahir, the eldest member of the squad at 39, has 24 scalps and is just one away from overtaking fellow South African Kagiso Rabada of Delhi as the IPL´s top wicket-taker.

Chennai, the most consistent qualifiers in the tournament's history, are next on the list at 5/1 - though who knows what will become of MS Dhoni at the end of this year's World Cup, which may yet affect his team's dynamic. In the third over, Quinton de Kock joined in, hitting Deepak Chahar for three sixes.

Tendulkar says this season has seen more last-over finishes than previous editions. This is the fourth time that these two sides are facing each other in an IPL final with Mumbai Indians winning it twice in 2013 and 2015, while Chennai Super Kings winning it in 2010. The unsafe Pandya made his opponents pay smashing Thakur for two sixes in the same over before getting out.

Colin Munro, who had the opportunity to run one of the batsmen out, chose to throw the ball towards the batting end.
