Mumbai Indians clinched the IPL title for the second time after beating Chennai Super Kings by 41 runs.

Mumbai Indians posted an imposing 202 for five as skipper Rohit Sharma (50) and Lendl Simmons (68) rattled up a 119-run stand off just from 67 balls after being invited to bat.

Dwayne Smith’s 57 was in vain for MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings, who could only make 161-8 in their allotted overs in Kolkata.

Mitchell McClenaghan took 3 for 25 as Mumbai, coached by Ricky Ponting, capped a superb turnaround having been bottom of the table after two games.

Mumbai had won their first title in 2013 at this very venue, defeating the same rivals. Chennai have now lost four finals (2008, 2012, 2013, 2015) in six appearances.
