Mumbai: A confident Dwayne Smith had told Rudra Pratap Singh that he could win the match for Mumbai Indians if the paceman could manage to give him strike to face the last three balls.
RP Singh got a single in the third ball and Mumbai needed 14 runs off the final three balls. Smith kept his words by hammering a six and two fours to take Mumbai Indians to a thrilling two-wicket victory over holders Chennai Super Kings.
"I just backed myself. I know as long as I can watch the ball I can do it. I just asked RP to give me the three balls that were left. I knew I could do it from there," said the West Indian at the post-match press conference.
