Twitter reacts as Mumbai lift IPL 2017
Mumbai Indians showed great character to defend 130 runs in the big finals to lift IPL 2017 trophy. Mumbai registered a 1 run victory over Rising Pune Supergiant in a low scoring thriller at Hyderabad on Sunday to clinch the title. It was some exceptional death bowling by Lasith Malinga, Mitchell Johnson and Jasprit Bumrah that took Mumbai to their third IPL title, the most by any team.
Twitter was flooded with words of appreciation and congratulations for the champions Mumbai.
