'MI 5' Captain Marvel Rohit crushes DC to win 5th IPL title for Mumbai Indians
Dubai: A peerless Rohit Sharma led defending champions Mumbai Indians to an unparalleled fifth IPL title here on Tuesday, dismantling Delhi Capitals in the summit clash with his famously elegant batting and tactical shrewdness.
If last year's one-run win over Chennai Super Kings was an absolute cliffhanger, Rohit's aristocratic 68 off 51 balls made it an anti-climax with Mumbai Indians chasing the target of 157 in 18.4 overs with five wickets in hand.
"We know it's a difficult time, everyone is stuck at home. We're lucky that we could come to work and entertain people watching at home," said MI's star pacer Jasprit Bumrah, who went wicket-less on Tuesday but snared 27 overall this season.
Five IPL titles are certain to make Rohit the undisputed 'Numero Uno' player-cum-leader in the IPL Universe. Little wonder, he was picked the Gamechanger of the match for his half century and outstanding captaincy.
