Mumbai Indians win Champions League 2013


Mumbai Indians created history by becoming the first team to win the Champions League twice. In a high-scoring final here on 7th October 2013 Sunday night, MI defeated Rajasthan Royals by 33 runs.

The Champions League Twenty20 2013 will end with the same teams on the field as when the first match was played on 21st September - Rajasthan Royals and Mumbai Indians. Just over two weeks on, it's Rahul Dravid versus Sachin Tendulkar again in what is mostly likely to be the last time the two greats will be seen together on the field, pitted against each other.

But emotions aside, it's a match that promises to be engrossing - a clash of styles, a clash of team character.

It was a perfect farewell for batting great Sachin Tendulkar, playing in his last Twenty20 match, as the Mumbai Indians won the Champions League Twenty20 title defeating the Rajasthan Royals in the final at the Ferozeshah Kotla

The Mumbai Indians team made it a double by having also won the Indian Premier League (IPL) earlier this year, only the second team after Chennai Super Kings (2010) having done so. The Indians also became the first team to clinch two CLT20 titles, the first one coming in 2011.


After the win, Tendulkar was seen being carried to the dugout by his team, waving the Mumbai Indians flag.

He was also given the guard of honour twice during the match. Once when he got out and walked back to the pavillion and when the team came out to field.
