It got worse for Mumbai when Kishan tried deposit a Tahir googly out of the park and his mishit went into the safe hands of Suresh Raina at cover, leaving Mumbai at 105 for two in 15 overs.

He said if it was amusing how both the teams kept on passing the trophy from one team to the other in the summit clash.

Their captain Shreyas Iyer is 23 and wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant, the likely successor to Dhoni in the national side, just 21.
