Mumbai Indians' off-spinner Harbhajan Singh was his best with the ball during the Champions League Twenty20 final against Rajasthan Royals at Feroz Shah Kotla stadium in Delhi on Sunday. His four for 32 won him the Man of the Match award and helped Mumbai Indians claim their second Champions League title with a 33-run win over the Royals.

The elated bowler may not have had much practice ahead of the tournament, but sad that his heroic effort in the title clash was the best he had bowled in the last three months.

"I'm happy with the way I finished, although I didn't practice at all. I was travelling to the US (and so,) didn't practice much before this but I'm really happy with the way I have finished this tournament. I think that over where I took three wickets was probably the best over I've bowled in the last three months," Harbhajan said at the post-match presentation. (Match highlights)
