IPL 2017:Whereas a crack team of players is important to win a match, if scenes from Sunday’s 21/5/2017 IPL Final 2017 between Mumbai Indians and Rising Pune Supergiant are everything to go by, prayers and good wishes may be similarly critical.
Mumbai Indians, who had been one of the most leading teams in the IPL this season have continuously run into anxiety when faced with their neighbours, team Rising Pune Supergiant. Earlier the final last sunday, the two teams Mumbai Indians and Rising Pune had played five matches between them concluded two seasons of the IPL, and Pune had won 4 match among them. What’s more, Pune had won a hat-trick of matches against Mumbai Indians in the contest this season.
It was scuffle for Mumbai Indians last evening too, as they were cheap to 79/7 in the 15th over. But Krunal Pandya put up a courageous front and added life into the Mumbai scores when it was floppy. Yet, in spite of his finest efforts, Mumbai could achieve only 129 in their 20 overs. The resistance of their score fell on anxious waters, as Ajinkya Rahane, Steve Smith and Mahendra Singh Dhoni piloted Rising Pune with a lot of equanimity. Mumbai Indians, yet, came back strongly, as Jasprit Bumrah detached MS Dhoni at a crucial stage.
As Players Srinath and Kumble were fighting a brave battle, the limelight of the camera was repeatedly falling on two elderly women in the standpoints, who stayed accepted through a entire gamut of emotions as the competition departed miserable to the wire. The whole country survived those moments as emotions burst at the Chinnaswamy and India notched up an unbelievable victory.
As it twisted out, the two women in the stand were Kumble’s mother and grandmother. And as it twisted out on last Sunday evening in the IPL final, the aged woman praying fervently as the IPL final entered the crunch last over, was Purnima Dalal, mother of team Mumbai Indians co-owner Nita Ambani and that was confirmed by nobody other than actor Abhishek Bachchan.
Dalal left Twittered smiling and touched and there was an outpouring of tweets as her face was flashed on television screens. Let’s appearance at a collection of tweets:

IPL Team Mumbai Indians won their third IPL title last Sunday evening and that is too very short margin. They didn’t just have eleven players giving their best out in the field but also a lucky charm in “Nani”. As they say, never miscalculate the power of prayer!
