The way Mumbai Indians emerged champions in the end by just one run in IPL 2019 final against Chennai Super Kings shows why the Indian Premier League is often called ‘Intense Premier League’. Needing just two runs off the last ball, CSK ended on the losing end with striker Shardul Thakur getting dismissed by Lasith Malinga through LBW. The match was a nail-biting one with the result coming on the very last ball and that too by just 1 run.

MS Dhoni’s run-out was the turning point of the game, which changed the progression of the match towards Mumbai Indians. It was a very close decision and third umpire took a lot of time, finally calling MS as out. The runout was equally close like that of the match and no one could guess what the final decision of third umpire would be.

With Dhoni dismissed for just 2 runs off 8 balls, every CSK fan went anxious and thought that the match has gone on Mumbai’s favour. However, Shane Watson still kept the game on with some nice strokes off death overs and made the game such a close event.

Dhoni’s close run-out became a talking point on Twitter. While some called it the saddest moment of the match, others said that it was as close as MSD doing stumpings. Some even opined that it should have been given non-out. Have a look at some of the comments.
