Chennai Super Kings overcame a resolute Sachin Tendulkar, playing with five stitches on his right hand, and a sensational Kieron Pollard to beat Mumbai Indians by 22 runs in a nail-biting final to win the Indian Premier League at a packed D.Y. Patil Stadium at Navi Mumbai Sunday night.
Super Kings, electing to bat, scored 168 for five with Suresh Raina smashing an unbeaten 57 off 35 balls.
Despite captain Tendulkar's (48 off 45 balls) heroics and Pollard's (27 off 10 balls) ferocious hitting in the end, Mumbai Indians ended up with 146 for nine in 20 overs.
