Mumbai Indians edged past Chennai Super Kings in a last over thriller to clinch a record fourth title at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium on Sunday. While Lasith Malinga's final over sealed the match for Mumbai, there were several moments during the course of the match which swayed the momentum in MI's favour.

5. Shane Watson's run-out: Shane Watson had raced to 80 off 59 balls and looked set to guide CSK to its fourth IPL title when a miscommunication between him and Ravindra Jadeja in the final over cost Watson his wicket. Malinga's wide yorker was squeezed away to deep point by the Aussie right-hander for a single but his reluctance to come back for a second ended up with him falling short of the crease.

4. Jasprit Bumrah's two for 14: One of the best death bowlers in the business, Bumrah proved yet again why he is so hard to put away in the decisive phase of an innings. With 42 needed off 24 balls, Bumrah bowled a  sensational 17th over that went for just four, and removed Dwayne Bravo in the 19th over to dent Chennai's chances.

3. M.S. Dhoni's run-out: M.S. Dhoni's run out in the 13th over was one of the major turning points in the run chase. Dhoni was trying to steal an overthrow and took on Ishan Kishan, who took down the stumps with a direct hit.

2. Rahul Chahar's one for 14: Leg-spinner Rahul Chahar had a memorable night with the ball. He removed in-form Suresh Raina in the 10 over, breaking a flourishing partnership between him and Watson. The youngster went for just 14 in his four overs stifling Chennai's scoring rate in the middle overs.

1. Malinga's late burst: Lasith Malinga redeemed himself in the final over of the run chase, getting Shardul Thakur out lbw as Mumbai lifted the IPL title for a record fourth time.
