Mumbai Indians became the most successful side in the history of the Indian Premier League on May 12, 2019. They beat Chennai Super Kings by 1 run in a last-ball thriller to become the first team to win the IPL 4 times.
Chennai Super Kings also had the opportunity to win the IPL crown for a record 4th time. CSK had won the IPL in 2010, 2011 and 2018 but they failed to defend their title after Lasith Malinga bowled a sensational final over in a nail-biting finish to the title clash.
Mumbai Indians had first won the Indian Premier League in 2013 before reclaiming the title in 2015 and winning it again in 2017. They failed to qualify for the playoffs after a nightmarish season in 2018 but MI came back hard in 2019 to lift the trophy for the 4th time.
