Match 44 CSK VS MI : A tale of misfortune as MUMBAI INDIANS thrashes Dhoni-less CHENNAI SUPER KINGS

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

There is 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 for him!

TOSS: CSK won the toss and will field first

Skipper Rohit Sharma & De Kock comes out

6, 4, and wicket!

There’s a 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

Reputation at stake for CSK!

As 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 90/1

A wicket; relief for CSK

Santner 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

Fifty for Rohit Sharma

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

Wickets starting to tumble

As Imran 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

Finally Santner removes Hitman!

Murali 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

Hardik 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.

17 runs 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 the total.


CSK needs 156 runs to win off 120 balls

Shane Watson & Murali vijay comes to the crease

4, 4, and wicket off first over!

Could you 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

CSK skipper Raina departs

This time 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

Straight through the gates off Rayudu!

Gee what 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

Another one bites the dust

Absolute 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

Shorey not so sure!

Csk is 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

Equation says 96 runs required off 60 balls. Someone has to step-up or else this game is way out of reach for CSK.

Caught and out?

Slower 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

Malinga gets DJ!

The blue 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

It’s Bumrah again

What a 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

It’s been 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 103/9

Csk 109 all out!

It’s been 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.

Mumbai 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
