The Mumbai Indians have been crowned Indian Premier League champions for the first time after a 23-run victory over the Chennai Super Kings at Eden Gardens.
Kieron Pollard blasted an unbeaten 60 to help the Indians post a target of 148-9 and despite Mahendra Singh Dhoni's knock of 63 not out, the Super Kings finished up on 125-9 in reply.
Mumbai did well to get as many as they did after a shocking start to their innings, Albie Morkel claiming two early wickets as Chennai had their rivals struggling at 16-3.
Dinesh Karthik did contribute 21 and Ambati Rayudu 37, including four boundaries, but it was Pollard who played the match-winning knock.
The big-hitting all-rounder needed just 32 deliveries to score his runs, hitting seven fours and three sixes. He finished with a flourish, too, launching the final two deliveries of the 20th over from fellow West Indian Dwayne Bravo over the rope.
Chennai's powerful batting line-up were then cut down by some superb pace bowling by Lasith Malinga and Mitchell Johnson, the duo taking two wickets apiece.
They got off to the worst possible start when Michael Hussey was bowled by Malinga with the fourth ball of their reply, while Suresh Raina and S Badrinath both perished for ducks.
Ravindra Jadeja also failed to trouble the scorers as he became the first of two victims to India spinner Harbhajan Singh, with the Super Kings at one stage slipping to 58-8.
Having held himself back to number seven in the order, Dhoni was left with little support. He battled bravely until the end, smacking five sixes, but it was all too late to stop Mumbai from taking the title.
