He took 2 for 9 in 3 overs in the Final against Royal Challengers Bangalore, helping Mumbai defend the total of 139 and lift the title.

In the second match, Chahal took three wickets for just 25 runs, lead his side to the victory by 8 wickets. In second over by him, he delivered a seam-up delivery at 109 km/h speed. His bowling performance earned him first international man of the match award as well.
