Buildup: This is Mumbai Indians taking
on Chennai Super Kings not in Wankhede but at the Chennai stadium, where
everything speaks in language of Chennai Super Kings
no MS Dhoni today as he is being struggling with the fever so he doesn’t play.
Suresh Raina is stand-in captain for Csk today. Any guess who is gonna keep
today for Chennai? It’s Ambati Rayudu! I might say this must be 4th dimension
won the toss and will field first
Rohit Sharma & De Kock comes out
6, 4, and
great comeback by the bowler Deepak Chahar as he has been earlier smacked but
this time he bowls to the stumps and De Kock top edges it to the keeper. De
Kock goes out for 15. Mi 15/1
at stake for CSK!
Ro-hitman sharma hits 2 sixes off Harbhajan Singh to get going. Meanwhile ewin
lewis on the other hand is cleanly hitting Imran Tahir for 2 boundaries. Mi
relief for CSK
strikes as ewin lewis hits that alright but doesn’t get the proper elevation
and DJ bravo at deep mid-wicket takes an easy catch. Lewis goes for 32. Mi 99/2
What a brilliant
knock he has played today. Taken a while to get going but when he gets the
momentum it’s tough for the opposition team to stop him. Mi 100/2
starting to tumble
Tahir gets wicket! Krunal Pandya heives to the on side where Mitchell Santner
makes no mistake. Krunal goes for 1. Mi 101/3
4, 4, 6
Rohit Sharma Bangs Imran Tahir. Mi 121/3
Santner removes Hitman!
vijay at long-on have bucket like hands as rohit sharma hits that straight to
him. Another wicket goes down and it’s big one for csk as Rohit Sharma goes for
67. Mi 122/4
Pandya And Kieron Pollard are on the crease at the moment. How much can they
get from here on? 150/60 will be tough for chasing team to close in.
off the last over from DJ Bravo as MI finishes 155/4. A big over for
Mumbai Indians, that’s what they wanted. Now it’s upto the bowlers to defend
156 runs to win off 120 balls
Watson & Murali vijay comes to the crease
4, 4, and
wicket off first over!
believe that? Watson hits two consecutive boundaries and this time he flicks it
off the bat and finds Rahul Chahar. That was possibly one of the worst ball,
which gets malinga a wicket. Nonetheless CSK 9/1
skipper Raina departs
it’s Suryakumar Yadav who takes it. It’s a first ball wicket for Hardik Pandya
as Suresh Raina dances down the track and top edges it straight to suryakumar
for 2. Csk 22/2
through the gates off Rayudu!
a delivery by Krunal Pandya as this one doesn’t turn just skids off the
surface, Rayudu was trying to drive and the ball went straight between bat and
pad and onto hit the stumps. On a surface which assist the spinners krunal is
on a roll here as Rayudu goes for duck. Csk 34/3
one bites the dust
ripper from Krunal Pandya! He is on fireeeeeeee! krunal bowls with the arm,
which doesn’t turn at all, As Kedhar Jadhav tries to cut this one But instead
gets chopped onto the stumps. Jadhav goes for 6. Csk 45/4
not so sure!
making this look impossible without MS Dhoni. This isn’t the team we have seen
earlier. Dhruv shorey holes out to Rahul Chahar at long on off anukul for 5.
Csk 60/5 after 10 overs
says 96 runs required off 60 balls. Someone has to step-up or else this game is
way out of reach for CSK.
ball from bumrah deceives murali vijay as he is early into his shot and
Suryakumar Yadav at point dives and takes a one-handed stunner. There was a
chat on-going between the Umpire regarding the catch cleanly taken or not? Well
the third umpire doesn’t have a conclusive evidence to overturn so murali vijay
has to go for 38. Csk 66/6
segment of the crowd will celebrate here in the stadium but the yellow ones are
in for a shock. As DJ Bravo tries to nudge it towards mid wicket but closes the
face of the bat early and return it back to bowler. Bravo goes for 20. Csk 99/7
splendid catch! Is that a Pandya? Yaayyyy it’s Krunal Pandya! You can’t keep
him away from the spotlight! Deepak Chahar has to go for duck. Csk 101/8
a night of nothing for CSK! As wickets are tumbling towards the middle portion
of the game. How much did csk really miss MSD today? It’s been a question to
definitely remember. Harbhajan holes out at long on off malinga for 1. Csk
the all time lowest score for CSK in the IPL. Earlier it was 112. You know what
it’s big 2 points win for Mumbai Indians and now they have 6 days off.
Indians won by 46 runs!
Man of the match: Initially Hardik Pandya gets the award but he dedicates it to theskipper Rohit Sharma for his knock 67 runs
