Mumbai clinch fifth title


Share post:

Dubai – West Indies white-ball captain Kieron Pollard and left-handed batsman Shimron Hetmyer failed to make a big impact in the final of the Indian Premier League (IPL), which was won by Mumbai Indians for the fifth time on yesterday.

Hetmyer, playing for Delhi Capitals, and Pollard, playing for the new champions, both fell for single-figure scores before Mumbai, powered by a run-a-ball 68 from their captain Rohit Sharma, clinched the title with a five-wicket win at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

Hetmyer, batting at six, made five before he was caught at short third man from an uppercut at a short, wide delivery from left-arm pacer Trent Boult, a foe he will face in higher-intensity battles for West Indies in the coming weeks in New Zealand.

Pollard, batting at five, scored nine before he was bowled, dragging a delivery from South Africa fast bowler Kagiso Rabada into his stumps. (CMC)
