IPL 2019: MS Dhoni’s run-out was the key moment for Mumbai Indians, says Sachin Tendulkar
When Shardul Thakur was given out LBW on the last ball off Lasith Malinga, with CSK still needing 2 runs to win, the stadium erupted and so did the MI players and support staff. Fans who were watching the final from far away joined them in venting out their joy/frustration at what was a nerve-wracking finish.
Sachin Tendulkar, who has been associated with the franchise from its berth was also left overjoyed at the win. Later he told the host broadcaster that MS Dhoni’s run-out in the final was the ‘key moment’ of the match.
“The key moment was Dhoni’s run-out. But also in patches when Bumrah bowled those critical to even out Malinga’s one poor over was also crucial. And the last over, thought Malinga finished the game out beautifully. And as for the final, we knew we defended 129 in the final two years ago, so we were confident. I think we have a terrific team – with experience and youth. As Mahela (Jayawardene) said, Rahul Chahar stands out the way he’s bowled this season. Just fabulous. And don’t forget Hardik. We were in the corner in many games this season, and Hardik bailed us out many times,” said Tendulkar.
