Young Washington Sundar had been doing a quiet job for Rising Pune Supergiant with the ball ever since coming as a replacement for Ravichandran Ashwin. After sending down tidy overs throughout the tournament,
he came up with a superb spell in the first qualifier against Mumbai Indians where he picked the big wickets of Rohit Sharma, Ambati Rayudu and Kieron Pollard to send his side into the final. That effort him ensured that he became the youngest player ever at 17 to receive a man of the match award in the IPL. Washington Sundar (3/16) vs Mumbai Indians.
