CLT20 Final: Rajasthan Royals vs. Mumbai Indians Scorecard, Recap and More

Mark PattersonUK Staff WriterJanuary 11, 2017

The Mumbai Indians won the Champions League Twenty20 after holding off the previously-unbeaten Rajasthan Royals in the final in Delhi by 33 runs.

The Indians, who featured Sachin Tendulkar, wrapped up a double after winning this year's IPL in the spring.

Batting first, Mumbai piled on 202 for six wickets from their 20 overs, and Rajasthan, despite a bright start, could not overhaul it.

The Mumbai Indians became the first multiple winners of the trophy, having also beaten Indian opposition in the shape of the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 2011 final.

Their batting set up the win in a true team effort, with no batsman making a half-century. 

Instead, there were plenty of cameos: Dwayne Smith topped the scoring with 44 at the top of the order, Rohit Sharma added 33 from 14 balls, and in the same number of deliveries, Glenn Maxwell finished the innings off with 37.

Chasing 203 looked like a stiff challenge, but the Royals made light of it at first.

Kusal Perera fell early, but thereafter, Ajinkya Rahane (65 from 47) and Sanju Samson (60 from 33) powered Rajasthan into command.

Once they fell, there was nothing else. Harbhajan Singh picked up four wickets as Mumbai squeezed the innings, with no other batsmen passing 10 runs.

In the end, they crumbled from 117 for one to 169 all out, with seven balls left unfaced. Thus, Mumbai were left to celebrate their double.
