Exactly, Burj Khalifa lights up with Rohit Sharma and people in UAE went on to witness the tallest building on Earth screened with Mumbai Indians and Rohit Sharma for the first time. Rohit also became the first Indian cricketer to be screened on the tallest building and it was a perfect night for the Mumbai fans.
The occasion could not get better for Rohit’s side as Mumbai went on to clinch their 5th IPL title overall and Rohit became the most successful captain in the IPL history. Mumbai were the most dominant side in the tournament and remained the same in a high pressure final too. Delhi could not capitalize on their first final with their inexperience coming into play.
Most dominant side in the last 8 years
They started their winning run in 2013 when Rohit took over the captaincy from Ricky Ponting at the mid stage of the tournament. Over the years, the core of the Mumbai team have remained the same with the likes of Pandya brothers, Bumrah, Rohit and Pollard. They have got the best uncapped players in the tournament in the form of Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan who have been in scintillating form this season.
To add to their advantage , they are all match winners on their own and have maximized their skill level to maintain the consistent title wins. Their auction picks have been so good that a player like Lasith Malinga who has been one of the finest bowlers in IPL history pulled out of the tournament due to injury, wasn’t missed at all. Such has been their bench strength.
Quinton De Kock is a star batsman all over the world and his shots have been a joy to watch this season. The finals never seemed competitive as Mumbai cruised to the target with more than an over to spare. The nerves of the Delhi dug out was high as the best bowler in the tournament, Kagisa Rabada had no impact on the opposition. Burj Khalifa lights up with Rohit Sharma and will stay in the memories of Mumbai fans forever.
