Mumbai Indians became the second team to defend the IPL title after Chennai Super Kings with win over Delhi Capitals by five wickets on Tuesday. This was the fifth time that Mumbai Indians won an IPL title. This was also the sixth time that Rohit Sharma won an IPL final as a player. Mumbai Indians were the only outlier in the tournament and rightly so as they defeated all the teams at least once in the tournament.
