It was the perfect final for the IPL 2019 as the match swung like a pendulum and Mumbai Indians finally won the game on the last-ball of the tournament.

Lasith Malinga, who was hit all over the park in his first three overs, kept his cool in the final over, bowling yorker after yorker and a brilliant slower ball off the final delivery to trap tail-ender Shardul Thakur LBW and win the match by a run.

Earlier, Mumbai Indians won the toss and elected to bat first. Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock got off to a flying start but got out in the power-play. Ishan Kishan and Kieron Pollard fought hard to take MI to 149 runs off 20 overs.
