    New Delhi: Mumbai Indians' Dwayne Smith and Harbhajan Singh won the Man-of-the-Series and Man-of-the-match awards, respectively, after winning the Champions League Twenty20 (CLT20) title at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium here on Sunday.

    With scores of 9, 63*, 48, 59 and 44, the in-form Smith bagged the Man-of-the-Series award. Harbhajan, on the other hand, clinched the Man-of-the-Match award for his match-winning performance in the final. The offie clinched three wickets in the 17th over to turn the match in MI's favour and ended with figures of 4 for 32 from four overs.

    "Great feeling winning two cups in one year. It was a little easier to score with the new ball. The ball was getting a bit wet. That over I took three wickets was probably the best I've bowled the last three months. I didn't practice much before this series; I was travelling to the US," said Harbhajan after receiving the award.

    Rajasthan Royals' Ajinkya Rahane won the Golden Bat for scoring the most runs in the tournament (288) while 41-year-old off spinner Pravin Tambe, also of Royals, bagged the Golden Wicket for scalping the most wickets, 12.
