Mumbai Indians will also be receiving the WWE championship belt with their logo on its side plates. This is not the only time that Triple H has done something like this, he also sent the same belt to Cleveland Cavaliers after they won the NBA title in 2016.

WWE is followed by masses in India and this is a good gesture of respect and sportsman spirit by Triple H to Mumbai Indians. Such a gesture from Triple H shows us that IPL is not only famous in India but also it is followed by the whole world which is a great sign for the Indian cricket.
Mumbai made 129 after they decided to bat first. None of their top batters could get themselves going as they kept losing the wickets at regular intervals. Krunal Pandya then came to his team rescue as he gave them a much needed 47 off 38 balls.
Pune had to chase a below par score but they played a lot of dot balls in the middle due to which their required rate increased and then they fell short by only one run.
Mumbai Indians have won three IPL titles and have become the most successful IPL team as they have the maximum number of titles to their name.
