Twitter goes bonkers as Mumbai Indians clinch their third IPL trophy

Mumbai Indians

The final of the VIVO IPL 2017 was a nerve wrecking thriller as the Mumbai Indians clinched the trophy for the third time as they defeated Rising Pune Supergiants by 1 run.

Mumbai won the toss and opted to bat first which proved to be a bad decision as they could only manage a paltry total of 129 to defend against Pune. RPS were the favourites after an impressive bowling performance on a slow pitch as Rahane gave them a good start but it all boiled down to the final over of the Pune innings.

They required 11 off the last over which was bowled by Mitchell Johnson as Tiwary hit the first ball for four and the equation was set to 7 off 5. But Johnson took 2 wickets on successive deliveries and eventually sealed the match as Mumbai won the final by such a close margin.
