Lasith Malinga delivered the killer blow as Mumbai Indians (MI) defeated bitter rivals Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by one run to lift a record fourth Indian Premier League (IPL) title in a rip-roaring final at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium here on Sunday.
Mumbai and Chennai are the IPL's two most successful teams having both won the title three times.
In the last five overs, Chennai needed 62 off 30 balls.
Mumbai roared back into the contest by claiming three quick wickets, including that of Dhoni who perished trying to steal a second run only to be beaten by a direct throw. Veteran New Zealander Mitchell McClenaghan was one of three players dismissed for ducks. Watson batted through the Chennai innings until he was run out in the final over, smashing four sixes and eight fours.
Quinton de Kock (29) had earlier provided a brisk start before Mumbai lost both de Kock and captain Rohit Sharma at the same total of 45.
With five overs remaining, Mumbai were 102/5 but Deepak Chahar's brilliance restricted them to a score of below 150 despite Pollard smashing two fours off the last two deliveries.
It was an outstanding effort from Chahar (1/14) in the middle overs, putting CSK under tremendous pressure as they could collect only 16 runs between 11-15 overs with loss of two wickets.
Dhoni has reliable old warhorses on every front to take on the Mumbai Indians, who beat Chennai last Tuesday to secure their place in the final. But Malinga sent down a slower delivery, foxing Shardul Thakur. "They kept performing and kept getting wickets whenever needed", he further added.
Both Hayden and Dhoni had faced off while representing their respective national teams, with the Australian playing under the seasoned keeper-batsman at CSK. Dwayne Bravo was the pick of the bowlers for CSK with figures of 2/19.
"The team that panics less is going to come out on top", Pollard said in his post-match television interview. He came on to bowl the 19 over and picked up two wickets; he trapped Hardik Pandya in front of leg-stump with a full-length inswinger, and then had his cousin Rahul Chahar caught at mid-off. Thakur's next wicket was that of Krunal Pandya, who was beaten for pace attempting to play a pull shot; the bowler called for the catch, ran several yards in his follow through and completed an excellent catch.
Aubameyang told BBC Sport afterwards: "I am happy we won, and I am sharing this [Golden Boot] trophy with two other guys I like". I have to be thankful to the team. "I played against Barcelona in the [2015 UEFA] Super Cup in Tbilisi and it's the same".
