In one of the closest Indian Premier League (IPL) finals, Mumbai Indians scraped past Rising Pune Supergiant by one run to clinch the Season 10 title — their third IPL triumph. It was a humdinger of a match as Mumbai looked to be out of the contest for most part of the contest but they came alive at the fag end to deny Pune a maiden title. Chasing 130 to win, Pune looked to be coasting towards the target but their slow run-rate came back to bite them in the end as they fell tantalisingly short. Captain Steve Smith scored a fighting half-century but it wasn't enough to get his team across the line. (SCORECARD)

Earlier, Krunal Pandya's battling 47 helped Mumbai Indians post a fighting total of 129 for eight in the IPL 2017 final against Rising Pune Supergiant at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad on Sunday. RPS kept chipping away at the wickets and it seemed MI would have a hard time even reaching the 100-run mark but Krunal battled on to save Mumbai the blushes and gave them a total to defend. Washington Sundar and Jaydev Unadkat impressed with the ball.
