Mumbai Indians Won the Pepsi IPL 2013

Mumbai Indians beat Chennai Super Kings by 23 runs to win. Mumbai Indians finally annexed their maiden Indian Premier Legue title upstaging a jittery Chennai Super Kings by 23 runs in the final here today to bring the curtains down to a tarnished sixth season of the cash-rich league.

Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma said leading the side to their maiden Indian Premier League (IPL) title win in Kolkata Sunday was a great experience. "Captaincy was a good challenge and it's been a great experience and a learning curve. We knew we haven't won the title for the last five years but this time we were very determined, credit goes to all the players and staff involved," he said after the 23-run win over Chennai Super Kings at the Eden Gardens.


Skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni now lost back-to-back IPL finals despite being the lone man standing in the end with an unbeaten 63. As soon as the last delivery was bowled by Pollard, senior pros Sachin Tendulkar, Ricky Ponting along with Team Mentor Anil Kumble rushed to the ground. Just like 2011 World Cup final, Tendulkar did a lap of honour with the teammates like Harbhajan carrying him on their shoulders.

Lasith Malinga (2/22) and Mitchell Johnson (2/19) set the tone before Harbhajan Singh (2/14) joined in the act as it was a rare batting disaster for the IPL heavyweights who featured in four straight, five overall, finals.
It was a moment to face two surprising and exciting news for the fans of Mumbai Indian. The first one when Mumbai Indians crushed Chennai Super Kings by 23 runs to lift their maiden Indian Premier League crown and second when the icon player Sachin Tendulkar informed his fans that it was his last IPL series. Despite this, after his announced for retirement from the league, a fitting farewell gift in front of a capacity crowd at the Eden Gardens.

The 66-ball 175 not out has demonstrated with the innings, strike-rate and soaring sixes that only sky is the limit for Chris Gayle.  Arunabha Sengupta revisits the boundaries of possibilities that this knock has redrawn in no uncertain terms.


Tempest, tornado, typhoon... the name Gayle, aided by its English derivative ‘gale’, is loaded with stormy synonyms. The man himself, Chris Gayle, has lived up to his name to the hilt, producing innumerable blizzards with his bat, with the white ball flying about like flurries of snow.

However, in spite of his reputation, records and repertoire, the knock he produced on Tuesday at Bangalore blew away even the most imaginative predictions. They may still get over it by the time their careers are over, but for a long time Mitchell Marsh, Ali Murtaza and Aaron Finch will be seeing stars punctuated by streaking balls of white.

Redefining possibilities

During the monsoon of 1983 — with the rain clouds had arrived the news that Kapil Dev had scored an unbeaten 175 against Zimbabwe in the Prudential World Cup. People in India had blinked and wondered how such a feat was possible.

The incredulity was understandable. Till then only nine Indian batsmen had ever scored 175 or more in Test matches, when they could bat for days and days. And the star all-rounder had made all those runs in the course of a 60-over game. Fans revelled at the then world record score in overs limit cricket. Kapil Dev, known to give the ball massive whacks from the word go, could not really be counted upon to score consistently in Test matches. But, he was largely agreed to be the right man to amass a world record score in the shorter format.
