IPL 2019: All are fans of the greatest! And by greatest in Indian cricket, we mean Sachin Tendulkar. Who is not a Tendulkar fan? They all are… He has possibly breached all the cricketing records, be it the most number of runs or centuries. After Mumbai Indians beat Chennai Super Kings in the 2019 IPL final, the players were in high spirits and so was Tendulkar. Tendulkar in a heartwarming gesture gave an autograph to young cricketers and obliged them to selfies. This is a video posted by Mumbai Indians from inside the dressing room where players are getting ready to leave for the team hotel.
Here is the video:
Meanwhile, defending nine runs off the last over, Malinga upped his game and won it for Mumbai by a run. Bumrah bagged the Man of the match for his two wickets in four overs, where he conceded only 14 runs.
Tendulkar agreed that the wicket of MS Dhoni against the run of play was the game-changing moment. “The key moment was to get Dhoni run-out. Also, in patches when Bumrah came and bowled those critical overs, especially after Malinga gave that expensive over. Even after that Krunal over that went for a lot of runs, Bumrah came in very hard. I think Malinga finished off really well, that was a beautiful over to finish off. The couple of finals that we have played here, we have finished it really well even defending a total like 120-odd,” said Sachin after Mumbai beat Chennai.
