Mitchell Johnson gets into a candid chat with teammate Jasprit Bumrah on Friday night

Johnson: Another great performance tonight mate, how'd you feel?

Bumrah: It's always good you know. This is the third time that Mumbai Indians is in the final. Today to contribute in this manner is a great feeling.

Johnson: I thought you bowled really well tonight. I really love seeing you bowl. In 2013 I was here with Mumbai Indians and we were in the final then and now we have another opportunity and this time we could play together. How do you feel?

Bumrah: It's a great feeling. In 2013 I was just a youngster coming out of U-19 cricket.

To play with you guys it's always special. I've learnt a lot and hopefully now whatever I've learnt I will probably get to use it in the final as well.

Johnson: There's something which the fans out there won't know, but when we first played together at Mumbai in 2013 you bounced me in the nets and hit me on the helmet. Can you talks us through that?

Bumrah: Usually when you are coming out of U-19 cricket so you think you have pace. So you try to experiment it on bowlers because otherwise if you hit the batsmen they don't like it. So I thought I'll try something on the bowlers and so it was a good day isn't it?" was Bumrah's reply.

Johnson: It was a very good ball and I was very impressed with you at that age and you've come a long way. I have been very impressed with how you have bowled throughout this season and I'm looking forward to hopefully playing a final with you. You've done so well this year, one more game to go hopefully it's a win.
