DELHI – Barbadian Dwayne Smith top-scored with a fluent 44 as Mumbai Indians, after posting a challenging 202-6, dismissed Rajasthan Royals for 169 in 18.5 overs to win the Champions League Twenty20 cricket title at Feroz Shah Kotla yesterday.
Mumbai Indians won the high-scoring final by 33 runs with Smith, who finished as the third highest run-scorer in the tournament – 223 runs, average 55.75, strike rate 142.94 – hitting five fours and a six off 39 balls.
Glenn Maxwell played a blazing death-over innings, hammering 37 off just 14 balls with four fours and two sixes while captain Rohit Sharma weighed in with a 14-ball 33-run cameo, stroking three fours and two sixes.
Maxwell was severe on Trinidadian medium-pacer Kevon Cooper, who was flayed for 20 runs in the 16th over of the innings.
