CLT20: Mumbai Indians win their first piece of silverware

With a modest total of 139 to defend, that too against a RCB line-up that had chased down above 200 twice before coming into the final was an improbable task but with the likes of talismanic Malinga, mercurial Pollard and the charismatic Harbhajan Singh in the ranks, the Bangalore challenge was squashed by the Indians.

Malinga, who also won the Golden Wicket award for the most number of wickets, 10, said: "I am happy that our team won. I am in the Mumbai Indians team as a bowler, but I managed to score a few runs also.”
