Mumbai Indians skipper Harbhajan Singh is disappointed to not make the final, but praised rival captain MS DHoni for his match-winning effort.

Mumbai Indians skipper Harbhajan Singh on Wednesday admitted that Mahendra Singh Dhoni's whirlwind 20-ball 51-run knock took the game away from them and praised the Chennai Super Kings for playing like champions in the IPL eliminator.

"Obviously, we are disappointed, but cannot change the result, CSK played like champions, Dhoni's innings was the game-changer, took it away from us," Harbhajan said after Mumbai Indians were knocked out of the tournament following a 38-run defeat against Chennai.

"We could not do too much about his innings, we have not achieved as much as we should have. The reason for removing myself from the attack was to get RP Singh a bowl, first ball he bowled, the edge should have gone to hand and missed," he added.
