CSK at the halfway stage were 54 for 6, still requiring 95 more.

Ojha, introduced into the attack in the eleventh over, bowled Morkel (10) with his sixth ball before Harbhajan had Chris Morris (0) edge one to the keeper to leave CSK eight down in the twelfth over. MS Dhoni slapped Ojha for a six in the 13th over before launching another one in the 15th. Needing 66 from 30 balls, Dhoni smashed Pollard for a six. Ravichandran Ashwin (9) fell in the 18th over, caught off Pollard to all but knockout CSK’s hopes. Dhoni hit a couple of sixes in the final over but CSK eventually fell 23 runs short.

Presentation

Saina Nehwal's a part of the presentation party. N Srinivasan's there too.
Kieron Pollard wins the man of the match award.

Pollard: Good to play some of your best cricket against the best IPL team. I thank my family and the crowd for backing us. I have to try and take responsibility and it came off today.

Mumbai, Punjab and Rajasthan have shared the best ground and pitch award for five or more games.

Gurkeerat Singh wins the catch of the tournament, a diving catch at fine-leg off a Ross Taylor hook. Sanju Samson wins the best young player of the tournament award.

Samson: Feel very lucky to be a part of Rajasthan, allowed them to express myself. Great experience to bat with 'Rahul sir', or Hodge or Watson.

Chennai Super Kings win the Fairplay Award.

Michael Hussey wins the Orange Cap. Dwayne Bravo wins the Purple Cap.

Hussey: Good fun but couldn't do the business on the final-day. Thoroughly enjoyed playing for CSK and hopefully can continue playing for them.

Bravo: Thanks to the fans for coming for the game, congratulations to Mumbai Indians, unfortunately for us we came out second. Good to know Dhoni trusted my ability and I enjoyed the challenge.

Shane Watson wins the MVP award. 386 points for him, which is apparently more than all others.

Stephen Fleming collects the runner-up award.

I think we are getting closer to the end now...thanks for your patience.

MS Dhoni comes up to collect the runner-up cheque.

Dhoni: I think the batting department failed, Huss and Raina got out to good balls but the rest of them played some bad shots. Was important to get some partnership going but did not. Think we did well to restrict them to 148 because we had the depth in our batting. First time we weren't under pressure going into the last stage of the league matches.

John Wright comes up to collect the winner's award. And now Rohit Sharma comes up to collect the winner's cheque for Rs.10 crores.

Rohit Sharma: Captaincy was a good challenge and it's been a great experience and a learning curve. We knew we haven't won the title for the last five years but this time we were very determined, credit goes to all the players and staff involved. Plan was to bowl our strike bowler at their best batsmen. I want to thank everyone who supported us.

Rohit and Ricky Ponting collect the trophy from the BCCI President, N Srinivasan.

...in the favour of Mumbai Indians, who have won their first ever IPL! This has been the most convincing win too! Lot of dancing, with Harbhajan Singh leading them from the front!

Karthik calls it one of the happiest days of his life. Ojha calls it an outstanding feeling to have won the IPL for the second time (after winning it for the Deccan Chargers).

Ojha, on his sprint after getting the wicket of Morkel, says he wanted to prove a point that he can bowl to left-handers.

The Mumbai Indians are on a lap of honour with Sachin Tendulkar being lifted by his players yet again.

Anil Kumble says his role was to keep the environment good in the dressing room. Credits John Wright as well, who says he's delighted for the boys. Wright also calls it a tough, two-month long tournament and adds the team got stronger as the tournament progressed.

Wright credits Ricky Ponting, Robin Singh and Nitin Patel and all his backroom staff for the win.

Sachin Tendulkar and Ricky Ponting in an interview now. Tendulkar says this was going to be his last IPL! That's a big announcement! Ponting says he was looking to keep up with the younger guys in the team.

Lasith Malinga and Mitchell Johnson now. Johnson says he enjoyed himself, especially bowling with 'Mali'. Calls it a great feeling to have won his first edition of the IPL. Malinga admits he did not do much earlier last two games but is happy to have bowled well in the final.

Harbhajan joins the duo now and says he's happy to proven many people wrong. Says he has bowled well and taken wickets and proved it those, who he asks "to go and have a look at their own record"! Fiesty!

Tendulkar calls it the right time to end playing the IPL and reveals he had decided to do that before the tournament. Gavaskar tempts him with an offer of playing one more game next season at Wankhede before calling it quits.
