Good Sports: A SELFLESS ACT IN IPL FINAL

The Mumbai Indians won their fifth title by beating the Delhi Capitals by five wickets in the Indian Premier League final at Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

Mumbai captain Rohit Sharma, who scored 68 runs, was the beneficiary of an unselfish play by Suryakumar Yadav.

In the 11th over, Sharma hit the fifth ball and tried to run for a single, but Delhi Capitals’ Praveen Dubey quickly threw the ball to the striker’s end. To keep his captain in the game, Yadav left his crease and sacrificed his wicket, winning praise from teammates and others.

“Rohit was batting very well at that moment,” Yadav said. “Most importantly he has been anchoring the innings a lot since first game. I don’t mind sacrificing my wicket for him at all.”
