Match highlights:

Mumbai Indians lifted the IPL title for the first time with a 23-run victory over Chennai Super Kings in the final. The win was too easy for Mumbai as Chennai failed to perform even after they restricted Mumbai to a beatable 148 in the first innings.

Mumbai had never reached the final before and opted to bat first after winning the toss, but lost openers Dwayne Smith (four) and Aditya Tare (0) within seven balls. They scored 148-9 with West Indian Kieron Pollard scoring 60 not out off 32 deliveries.

In the six years of the tournament, Chennai team was competing in their fifth final. After a poor start to their innings, they never recovered. Lasith Malinga dismissed Australian Mike Hussey, the leading run scorer in the competition, and Suresh Raina in the opening over.

Dhoni played cautiously, but hit three sixes in an attempt to turn the game, but in the end that was not enough. He scored unbeaten 63 off 45 deliveries but it was not enough as Harbhajan Singh (2-14) and Mitchell Johnson (2-19) both took two wickets to help Mumbai win the title.
