While there were celebrations after MI's triumph, there were disappointments, anger, and frustrations by CSK fans after their close loss. CSK skipper MS Dhoni's debatable run-out ended up being the turning point of the game as it opened up the floodgates for Mumbai to make a comeback into the game. The replays created a lot of confusion as from one angle, it was seen that Dhoni was short of his crease while from the other angle it seemed like he had just made his ground. After going through the replay several times, it was seen that Mahi's bat was on the line. Since the evidence was inconclusive, it seemed that the batsman would be given the benefit of the doubt. Nonetheless, third umpire Nigel Llong gave Dhoni out.
However, the decision seemed to be too harsh for a little boy who was seen crying bitterly after 'Thala' was sent back to the dugout. The boy was crying inconsolably and was heard cursing the third umpire that he would commit suicide for giving a wrong decision. His mother tried to console him by saying that it could be a matter of match-fixing.
