Defeat Mumbai Indians by 22 runs to lift IPL 3 title

Mumbai Indians lost when it mattered the most. Chennai Super Kings defeated Mumbai by 22 runs to lift the Indian Premier League (IPL) title in the third edition at D Y Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai on Sunday night.

A slow start by Mumbai Indians mounted pressure for the batsmen coming in late during the chase of 169.

Although Mumbai retained the record of not being bowled out in IPL 2010, they could not win the tournament.

An injured Sachin Tendulkar scored a valiant 48 before being dismissed by Shadab Jakati.

Chennai Super Kings bowlers kept the Mumbai innings in check throughout the chase.

However, West Indian Keiron Pollard did scare the Chennai Super Kings when he scored 27 runs in 10 balls (3 fours and two sixes).

Batting first, Suresh Raina smashed an unbeaten 57 as Chennai Super Kings scored 168 for five against Mumbai Indians.

Raina rode on his luck as he was dropped twice in his 35-ball innings that included three fours and three sixes.

Super Kings got off to a slow start after electing to bat with Murali Vijay (26) and Matthew Hayden (17) sharing a 44-run opening stand in as many balls.

Raina and Subramaniam Badrinath (14) added 19 runs before the latter was dismissed by Dilahara Fernando (2-23).

Raina and Mahendra Singh Dhoni (22 off 15 balls) then added 72 runs for the fourth wicket. Dhoni struck two fours and one six but was caught by Fernando after mishitting a full toss from Zaheer Khan.

Raina then used the long handle in the end with the final five overs fetching Super Kings 60 runs.
