IPL 2022 Points Table, Orange Cap, Purple Cap: The match number 59 of the Tata Indian Premier League (IPL) between Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians didn’t quite live up to the expectations, however, we certainly saw a cracking contest between the two bowling sides. The match was won by Mumbai Indians (MI) by five wickets.
Rohit Sharma called rightly during the toss and opted to field first. Mumbai Indians (MI), earlier in their innings, got the benefit of the technical issue as the DRS System wasn’t available due to an error in one of the floodlights.
Opener Devon Conway was removed by Daniel Sams in the very first over. Umpires gave LBW, which would have been sliding down the leg side, however, DRS wasn’t available hence, Conway had to depart.
Following Conway’s wicket, Sams removed Moeen Ali in quick succession and pushed CSK on the backfoot. Pace Spearhead Jasprit Bumrah picked up from where he left in his last match and sent back Robin Uthappa in his first over.
The surface was aiding the pacers and Mumbai bowlers rightly exploited the condition and one by one picked wickets of Chennai based franchise.
CSK skipper MS Dhoni kept the scoreboard ticking, however, he couldn’t get support from non-strikers as a result of which CSK were reduced before the 100 runs mark. Mumbai Indians bowled out CSK for 97 in 16 overs.
In pursuit of a scanty total, Mumbai too lost early wickets after CSK pacers began using the help on offer from the surface. Ishan Kishan was removed in the very first over following which skipper Rohit Sharma had to depart.
Daniel Sams, who was promoted to number three, was also dismissed by Mukesh Chaudhary. Debutant Tristin Stubbs also had a forgettable outing as he was dismissed for a duck.
Meanwhile, youngster Tilak Verma and Hrithik Shokeen controlled the situation. Both the batters played sensible cricket and paid respect to the two CSK pacers.
The two batters took on every loose delivery and kept the scoreboard running. While Verma remained unbeaten at 34 runs, Shokeen scored 18 runs from 23 deliveries.
To finish things off in style for Mumbai, Tim David smacked two sixes and wrapped up the match. Mumbai won the contest by five wickets.
