Mumabi Indians had beaten Rising Pune Supergiant in a thriller of a final in Hyderabad to win the title and thus became the first franchise to win the IPL three times.

New Delhi: Mumbai Indians on Thursday celebrated the third anniversary of them winning the third Indian Premier League title in 2017. MI had beaten Rising Pune Supergiant in a thriller of a final in Hyderabad to win the title and thus became the first franchise to win the IPL three times.

It eventually came down to RPS needing 12 to win off the last over bowled by Johnson. Manoj Tiwary was on strike and captain Steve Smith was on 51 at the other end. Tiwary hit Johnson for a four off the first ball but then was caught at long on off the next. The batsmen crossed over and it was Smith who faced the next ball.

Johnson got his former Australian teammate off that very ball, with Smith hitting it straight to sweeper cover. Johnson was denied the hat-trick but the two wickets did the trick and MI eventually sealed a one-run win.

MI on Thursday tweeted stats from the tournament and videos of that day, including the trophy presentation and the party that was held later.
