Indian Premier League Match 44
Chennai Super Kings vs Mumbai Indians
Toss: Chennai Super Kings won the toss and decided to bowl first
Having sent to bat by Suresh Raina, Mumbai Indians got the tricky start. As the opener Quinton De Kock out early on 15 off 9 balls. After him it was the skipper Rohit Sharma and Evin Lewis who consolidated the innings together. Evin Lewis out after scoring 32 runs off 30 balls, he was on the slow side. Krunal Pandya followed him afterward by playing a rash shot on Imran Tahir. Hardik Pandya, however, showed some promise and scored unbeaten 23 runs. The skipper Rohit Sharma was fantastic on the difficult pitch for the batsmen and scored 67 runs.
Mumbai Indians finishes with 155 runs for the lost of 4 wickets in the end.
A few things in life simply don’t change – a middle order of MI collapse again and a Hardik Pandya prosper toward the end. 27 off the last two overs, and Mumbai have something decent. 155 it will be.
Mumbai Indians score : 155-4 in 20 overs.
In reply of Mumbai Indians 155 runs, Chennai Super Kings were looking restless from the beginning. Leading by Suresh Raina today CSK were looking out of touch. Opener Shane Watson out early on 8 off 4 balls. The shipper Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, and Kedar Jadhav didnot even get to the double figures and scored 8 runs collectively. Dhruv Shorey who got the chance to prove himself failed and depart without travelling the scores.
Dwayne Brave and Mitchell Santner showed some resistance in the end but both out on 20 and 22 respectively leaving their side to sink. Chennai Super Kings bowled out within 18 overs on 109 runs and suffer the defeat from the hand of Mumbai Indians.
No captaincy charms. Suresh Raina, interminably sitting tight for a short ball, hoicks revolting ly at an off-shaper. He’s had quite recently the one fifty in this whole season.
More contention. This time it’s against Mumbai, with a Hardik Pandya no ball called, yet replays demonstrate the front foot somewhere around two crawls inside the wrinkle. What’s more awful, the free-hit goes for a limit.
This IPL and debate are never far – this time with a catch discussion – So Suryakumar Yadav makes a plunge front, however are his fingers underneath? A million replays, a million points yet every single one of them are definitive. In any case, things remain with the delicate flag, and VIjay’s given walking orders.
