    Arrow Super Kings crowned champions of IPL 3

    Super Kings crowned champions of IPL 3










    Mumbai: Chennai Super Kings played the smarter cricket and deservingly won the IPL Cup by defeating fancied Mumbai Indians by 22 runs at the packed DY Patil Stadium.

    Batting first after winning the toss, the Super Kings shrugged off a slow start as "Player of the Match" Suresh Raina (57 not out), dropped twice, led from the front to pile up 168 for five and then turned in some brilliant performance in the field to restrict Mumbai Indians to 146 for nine.

    The much-heralded Mumbai batting line-up caved in under pressure despite a brave 48 by skipper Sachin Tendulkar and big-hitting by Kieron Pollard (27 off 10) even as the Super Kings took some brilliant catches with skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni yet again spot-on with his field placements and bowling changes.

    Apart from Raina, there were quite a few other heroes for the Super Kings. Spinners Muttiah Muralitharan (17 runs in four overs), Shadab Jakati (2 for 26 from three) and Ravichandran Ashwin (24 in four) and later, seamers Albie Morkel and Doug Bollinger, all chipped in at the right moment to author a historic victory for the Super Kings who had finished runners-up in 2008.

    The other factor that tilted the scales in the Super Kings, who also won the Fair Play trophy, favour was the team composition, besides of course their superior fielding. The Chennai outfit kept their faith in their three specialist spinners and held their catches.

    The Mumbai Indians went in with just one in Harbhajan Singh while opting for an overly pace attack that was not as effective on a pitch that grew progressively slower.

    The home team, faced with a big target, never got into their stride despite a promising second wicket partnership between Tendulkar and Abhishek Nayar who put on 66 runs. But Nayar committed a blunder attempting a non-existing single and was run out. The rot well and truly set in at that point.

    Later, despite Tendulkar farming the bowling, wickets fell at the other end. The spinners came into their own with Ashwin up front followed by Muralitharan and Jakati, who dismissed Tendulkar and the dangerous Saurabh Tiwary in one over, doing the bulk of damage.

    The Mumbai Indians kept back the powerful Pollard and when he came into bat, the asking rate had climbed to over 15. He blasted some massive hits, but it was all too little too late and he eventually fell to a brilliant catch by Matthew Hayden who thus atoned for a dropped chance earlier in the evening.

    The turning point of course was Jakati's third and the 15th over of the innings when he removed Tendulkar and Tiwary. Thereafter, the rest of the batsmen, barring Pollard, were simply not up to the task and although Pollard took 22 off Bollinger in the 18th over, his exit signaled the end of the Mumbai Indians' challenge.

    Super Kings did well not to look the gift horse in the mouth when they batted. The going in the initial overs was rather painful and scratchy despite a few big hits by the two openers, Murali Vijay and Hayden who looked distinctly out of depth.

    In fact, Hayden was lucky to survive a plumb leg-before decision early in his innings, but even otherwise, was unconvincing. At the other end, Vijay batted quite beautifully until he tried to break the shackles and departed in the eighth over.

    Hayden followed his partner back into the dugout, miscuing a big hit. Subramaniam Badrinath did not stay long and with the runs all but dried up, he too fell trying to force the pace and the Super Kings were reduced to 67 for three in the 12th over.

    In walked skipper Dhoni and almost immediately set about repairing the damage. Raina, meanwhile, lived a charmed life, being dropped when on 13 and 28 and the Mumbai Indians were to pay a heavy price for these lapses.

    The pair went on at a good clip to add 72 runs for the fourth wicket before Dhoni fell in the 18th over trying to maintain the brisk pace.

    At this stage, the Super Kings still did not have enough runs on the board, but Raina and Albie Morkel came up with some big hits to push the score along. However, just when the partnership appeared to be flourishing, Morkel was run out attempting a bye in the final over.

    Lasith Malinga sent down two dot balls to Raina and off the third, the southpaw batsman attempted a suicidal bye that caught Morkel well short of the crease. Another dot ball followed to new man Anirudha Srikkanth and then five wides. Anirudha hit the fifth legal ball to the boundary and finished the innings with a two.

    Thus, a total of 168 gave the Super Kings lots to play with after looking hopelessly out of the contest in the first 10 overs when they scored a mere 59 runs.

    IPL 2010 – Presentation Ceremony of Final Between Mumbai Indian and Chennai Super Kings



    So at last Chennai Super Kings won the title. After lots of ups and downs in league matches Chennai make it to the semifinals and then finals, and at last they are Champions.

    Code:
    Man of the Match  :  Suresh Raina
    
    Maximum Sixes     :  Suresh Raina
    
    Purple Cap Holder :  Prgyan Ojha
    
    Orange Cap        :  Sachin Tendulkar
    
    Golden Player Award                           :  Sachin Tendulkar
    
    City Success Player of the Tournament         :  Saurabh Tiwary


    Presentation ceremony: Lalit Modi gives what seems to be a farewell speech. He says he’s happy his dream of a world-class sports league in India has come true, before proclaiming that the IPL is clean and transparent. He says all decisions have been taken by the governing council as a whole, and not by him alone and that all charges against him are based on innuendos.

    He signs off by thanking everyone he can think of in Oscar-winner style. His speech comes in the backdrop of news that he is going to be suspended by the BCCI shortly.

    Suresh Raina is the Man of the Match: “Our staff have put in lot of hard work. I’m really happy for the team. It’s been a great year for us.” He picks ‘fantastic’ as the one word to sum up the day.

    Sourabh Tiwary is the Under-23 success of the tournament, for his 419 runs and three half-centuries.

    Chennai win the Kingfisher Fairplay award, Sachin Tendulkar is presented with the Orange Cap by Nita Ambani for being the leading run-scorer in the league phase. The Purple Cap is given to Pragyan Ojha by the owner of Deccan Chargers.

    Sachin Tendulkar is named the DLF golden player, which I think is the Man of the Series award.

    He also collects a cheque for Rs 3 crores for Mumbai being the runners-up.

    Tendulkar: “A couple of important catches cost us, the start also.. we could have accelerated a little bit more, it was just one of those tough days, I want to thank all the Mumbai Indians supporters. Towards the end, Pollard came and it was a bit too late. It’s been a terrific journey, it’s been an honour to be part of the Mumbai Indians, the support staff has also been tremendous. It’s been a special tournament for us, barring today. Most likely I’ll be playing next year as well. Chennai played better than us today, congratulations to them.”

    Dhoni: “Credit goes to the team, we were under pressure in the middle of he tournament, excited to lift the trophy today. We were happy with the total, the Mumbai wicket supports the seamers and Bollinger did well early, Ashwin has been doing a superb job with new ball. We were able to create the kind of pressure to get wickets. The IPL gets better and better, the benchmark keeps rising each year. The players will sweat more because of extra teams next year, the pressure will be on the office-bearers to make it further big.”

    The Chennai players get on stage to collect commemorative bats, and Dhoni finally collects the cheque for six crores from Lalit Modi, before getting his hands on the IPL trophy. The confetti machine does its job, there are firecrackers going off in the background, the Chennai team can’t stop grinning.
