    That match seems a bit fixed with Mumbai winning by 1 run but considering the umpiring, 1 could argue it was fixed against Mumbai.

    Mumbai's batters got hammered by Pune and got 129/8 after 20 oversKrunal Pandya was able to score 47 off 28.

    In response, Mumbais bowlers brilliantly and restricted Rahane and Smith. Smith managed to score half a century but it came off 49 balls (slowest 50 in this year's IPL). The match could have been a lot easier form mumbai but 2 obvious lbws were dismissed.

    Bumrah bowled brilliantly, in particular in 1 of his penultimate overs where he scored 1-3, including MSD's wicket.

    With 1 over left and 11 off 6 required by Pune to win, Mitch Johnson's experience proved vital as his final over had figures of 2-9 (+ a run-out), including the Wickets of Manoj Tiwary and Steve Smith in consecutive balls.

    As predicted (rather obviously) a Marathi team would win the final.

    Krunal got man of the match;

    David Warner obviously retained the Orange cap (641 runs in tournament);

    the purple went to Bhuvuneshwar Kumar (26 wickets); both the orange and purple caps were collected by Mohammed Siraj



    Gujarat got fair play award (rather deservingly I felt although I am peeved Mumbai didnt get purple or orange).

    Narine got (rather obviously) the fastest 50 of the year (50 off 15).

    Basil Thampi got the Emerging Star award (personally would have given it to Pant or Rashid Khan but hey guess he got it).

    Glenn Maxwell won the most 6's in the season (tied with Warner at 26 6's a piece but hit the larger 6) - Mitch Johnson collected the award on his behalf.

    Gautam Ghambir got the most stylish player award;

    Yuvraj got the Glam Shot award (personally felt David Warner should have gotten it but meh)

    Suresh Raina got the Perfect catch award for his catch against Rahane (Thampi collected it on his behalf)

    Ben Stokes got the MVP (Most Valuable Player) of the Tournament award

    A thrilling, thrilling end. What a season, what a tournament. Congratulations to Mumbai.

    MI posted 129-8, with Karn and Rayudu ran out, and Zampa posting 2-32: Rohit and Pollard caught by Thakur and Tiwary for 24 and 7 respectively. Unadkat claimed 2-19: catching and bowling Simmons for 3, having Parthiv caught by Patel for 4, and Christian bagged 2-34: Pandya caught by Rahane for 47, and trapping Hardik for 10. Pune posted 128-6 as MI won via the last ball. Christian was ran out for 4, Johnson posted 3-26: Rahane caught by Pollard for 44, Smith by Rayudu for 51, and Tiwary by Pollard for 7. Bumrah posted 2-26, too, dismissing Dhoni via a Patel catch for 10, and trapping Tripathi in front for 3.

    It's Pune's last ever IPL appearance - and they went out swinging. They kept MI down to the lowest first-innings total in an IPL final. Really, they should have never let the chase go down to the last ball. Johnson's bowling at the death, to Christian, was excellent. Really, Krunal goes down as my match-winner - his 38-ball 47 dragging them from 79 for 7 to an eventual 129 for 8. MI's bowlers deserve a shout out, too. They managed to make the required rate creep steadily upwards - with five overs to go, Pune were only two down but needed 47 from 30.

    Six of the nine previous IPL finals had been won by the team batting first. MIs record this season of eight wins in 11 games while chasing signalled Pune may not have it all their own way. But Mumbai's record against Pune this season was worse: they had met three times this season, and Pune had won all three times, twice while batting first. MI started cautiously - only seven coming off the first two overs - but Rohit hit Ferguson for four fours in the sixth over and allowed some progress, before Zampa removed Rohit and Pollard in the 12th over, and MI were 65 for 5.

    Krunal did excellently. Simmons and Parthiv fell in the third over. Rohit found deep midwicket off a short ball. Pollard came and went swiftly, meaning when Krunal was 15 off 17, he was the last specialist batsman standing, with 40 balls left to turn a score of 79 for 7 into something defendable. His SR from balls 1 to 27 was 85, but this upped to 219 from balls 27 to 38. He finishes the tournament with 243 runs, and 10 wickets. In 20-over games, teams have only defended 129 or less on eight occasions in the IPL. The last time was in 2013.

    What. A. Match.

    Brilliant stuff! I thought this would be another one-sided affair like all the other play-offs but boy oh boy did MI prove me wrong! They seemed a little off colour initially but I feel after Rahane's wicket their spirits lifted and even more after MSD's wicket!

    I think Pune only have themselves to blame... They took it too easy initially and they let the run rate creep up on them.

    Taking nothing away from MI though. A great match. Congratulations to MI on their third IPL win!

    And with that the IPL comes to an end... its been a bowlers season for sure with the final just topping it off nicely.

    Several IPL players and coaches have said the rain-plagued eliminator between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders shows D/L needs a revamp. After restricting Sunrisers to 128, Knight Riders had to wait over three hours while the rain poured before they were set a revised target of 48 to chase in six overs via the Duckworth-Lewis method. They eventually got there comfortably, despite being reduced to 12 for 3 seven balls into the chase. Fleming said that while the D/L method was efficient in the 50-over format, it was heavily biased towards the chasing team in a T20 game. In a column in the Times of India, Fleming suggested "wicket pressure" - that is, reducing the wickets in hand along with the overs in shortened T20 - was the best way to even out the contest.

    Fleming is proud of Pune, he says, and he should be. They went within a whisker of winning, and now they won't be a franchise for a couple of years, it was the ideal ending. They went out in a blaze of fallen and close glory. In truth, Pue were a batter short with Ben Stokes not being here. They were playing an extra bowler and they were a little mindful of that. They had a decent start in the Powerplay to score 38 for 1, but could make only incremental advances as they scored 27 runs in the next five overs. They finished second-bottom last year, but low-key players stepped up this term: Unadkat, Tripathi, Tiwary.

    It was a week of great partnerships - Pandya and Johnson with 50 as MI beat Pune, after they stood at 79 for 7. Pandya and Johnson scored at 8.57 runs in the 5.5 overs they batted together to help MI post 129. Likewise, Rohit and Krunal posted 54 together vs KKR to cement their place in the final. Mumbai's top three batsmen failed to impress and they were reduced to 34 for 3 in 5.4 overs. But Sharma and Pandya provided the stability required and guided their side closer home. The duo scored at 8.10 runs in the 6.4 overs that they batted together. Sharma fell in the 12th over for 26 off 24 balls, but Pandya and Kieron Pollard took MI home with 33 balls to spare. Pandya remained unbeaten on 45 off 30. Speaking of Tiwary, he combined with Dhoni for a 73-run stand vs MI in the Qualifier. Tripathi and Smith were removed in the first two overs, but the duo provided stability and scored at 7.38 in the 10.5 overs they batted together and their 80-run stand set the platform for a late onslaught. Tiwary and Dhoni scored at 9.95 runs in the 7.2 overs that they batted together. Tiwary fell in the 20th over for a 48-ball 58, while Dhoni remained unbeaten on a 26-ball 40.

    So, what next for Pune? Their bowling was consistently good across the various phases of the innings. In the Powerplay, they gave away 7.89 an over and took 28 wickets - the second-best after MI. Their figures in the middle overs - 7.06 and 45 wickets - were the best. And they tied with Sunrisers for the highest number of wickets at the death - 40. In all, they conceded 7.83 an over - the lowest in the season - and topped the wicket charts with 113 dismissals. Additionally, the 797 dots they sent down were second only to Mumbai. Last year, only Rahane crossed 300 runs; this time, five of their batsmen did so. Their bowling was spread out, with everybody chipping in, and their Indian quartet - Tripathi, Unadkat, Sundar and Thakur - were excellent. The former struck at over 146, and at one point had seven thirty-plus scores in eight innings. Unadkat claimed a hat-trick vs Sunrisers, and he finished behind only B Kumar with 24 wickets. Thakur and Sundar also put in clutch performances; the former in their last league game - a must-win against Kings XI Punjab - and the latter vs Mumbai in the Qualifier.

    Obviously, Stokes - the most overseas IPL player ever - was integral. He can do it all: bowling, batting, fielding. 316 runs at a strike rate of 143 including a century, 12 wickets at an economy rate of 7.18 and two of best catches in the tournament. Pune also made a smart move by replacing the injured Mitch Marsh with Tahir, who was their second-highest wicket-taker with 18 scalps at 20.50. Unfortunately, Rahane had a poor season. He still ended as their third-highest run-scorer but did not show the consistency of seasons past, with two half-centuries in 16 innings. Dhoni struggled too, with an average of 26.26 (his lowest across IPLs, as was the strike rate of 116). Pune managed an average first-wicket stand of 23.87, which was better than only DD. The scoring rate of 7.34 an over for that wicket was also the worst in the tournament. Dinda was also expensive - 119 runs in 10 overs for 1 wicket.

    By my money, MI thoroughly deserved the trophy. Their batsmen from Nos. 3 to 7 made 10 fifty-plus scores and only three of them were in vain. Pollard struck one after Badree took a hat-trick and reduced MI to 7 for 4 in a chase of 143. Rana made 62 not out without hitting a single four, but his seven sixes made sure Mumbai recorded their highest chase of 199 with 4.3 overs to spare. Krunal, back from a groin injury, made successive forties in successive knockout games. Bumrah delivered with the ball, namely in the Super Over, and no one bowled as many as his 164 balls in the death. He was also among the top 5 wicket-takers of the season. Karn stepped up when need be, posting 4-16 in one match, Rayudu hit a match-winning 50 after being on the sidelines, and the only negative really was the way they threw their wickets away at times. Rohit made 333 runs at an average of 23.78 and a strike-rate of 121.97. He struggled vs spin because he failed to pick the googlies of four different bowlers - Badree, Imran Tahir, Rashid Khan and Amit Mishra. Malinga conceded 50 runs or more in two successive matches and was hit for 50 runs by one single batsman - Amla when he made 104 not out. Despite their good form, they still have a bit of a poor record vs Pune. Luckily for them, the franchise is no more.

    So, how did they win? MI knew a target of just 130 was more than achievable. After 15 overs, 47 runs stood between Pune and the win, and this went to 33 off 24 balls, making Pune favourites. But Bumrah was excellent. He has a habit of delivering at the death - remember England couldn't score 8 off his final over in Nagpur - and he hit his yorkers well, and slower balls. He strangled Smith, firing in fuller balls,
    and did the same with Dhoni, who smacked him across the park in the Qualifier. He conceded three runs off his final over, bringing MI back into the game. Johnson then delivered a masterclass after Malinga delivered with a spell of 3-0-14-0 (he had conceded at 11.07 per over at the death this season before this).

    So, who is your team of the IPL? For me:

    Warner - 641 runs, average 58, strike-rate 142
    Lynn - 295 runs, average 49, strike-rate 180.98
    Gambhir - 498 runs, average 41.50, strike rate 128
    Smith - 472 runs, average 39, strike rate 122
    Pant - 366 runs, average 26, strike rate 166
    Stokes - 316 runs, strike rate 143; 12 wickets, economy 7.18
    Krunal - 10 wickets, economy 6.82; 243 runs, strike rate 136
    B Kumar - 26 wickets, economy rate 7
    Sundar - 8 wickets, economy rate 6.16
    Bumrah - 20 wickets, economy rate 7.4
    Unadkat - 24 wickets, economy rate 7

    Honourable mentions: Tripathi, Amla, Uthappa, Tiwary, Pandey, Karthik, Axar, Rashid and Tahir.

    8.41 was the run rate in IPL 2017, the highest across all seasons. 26 matches were won by side batting first, with 32 for the chasing side. One was tied and another decided in the Super Over. MI (4-2) and Pune (5-3) had the best records when batting first, while Gujarat Lions lost all seven such games. MI and KKR had identical 7-3 chasing records. There was just 19 balls per six (last year, the corresponding rate was 21.42) and Maxwell/Warner hit the most: 26. Maxwell faced only 179 balls for his 26 sixes, while Warner faced 452. Pant was third in the list with 24 sixes followed by Pollard's 22. td

    The average run rate in the first six overs this season was 8.33, the highest across every season. The team with the highest rate in the first six this season was KKR (9.39), while RCB's 6.84 was the lowest. 218 wickets for spinners this season, at an average of 27.97 and an economy rate of 7.62. The seamers took 432 wickets at a similar average (28.53), but at a much poorer economy rate (8.6). There were 40 wickets for spinners in the first six overs, the second-highest across 10 editions. 47 - the dot-ball percentage for Washington Sundar - was the highest among the 31 bowlers who bowled at least 30 overs in the tournament. The next best was Unadkat with 46%, while Umesh Yadav and Pawan Negi had dot percentages of 44 each.

    Tiwary scored 187 runs in the last five overs, the most by a batsman in the death overs this season. He scored them off 118 balls (SR 158.5), while the next highest was Hardik Pandya (176 off 99).
