CL T20 2nd Semifinal: MI makes it All Indian Final

The weakened Mumbai Indians stormed into the final of the Champions League 2011, surprising themselves more than any other team. They defeated the balanced team of Somerset by 10 runs in a closely contested second semifinal. MI, with obvious batting problems but strong bowling, will contest the final with Royal Challengers Bangalore, which is very strong in batting but has the weakest bowling in the tournament.

The final will not only throw Harbhajan as one of the good and lucky captains available in India, but will also silenct the critic of IPL teams who have doubted the ability of Indian teams against teams from other countries in Twenty20.
