MI lost the plot altogether after reducing Superkings to virtually 24 to 5 in power play.
Chennai Super Kings has successfully regained the top spot in the 2021 IPL point table. The team led by MS Dhoni defeated the Mumbai Indians in 20 runs at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Sunday. Meanwhile, MI continued to be out of breath in the T20 league. The five IPL champions remained in fifth place with as many defeats as four wins at the event.
Gaikwad empowers CSK
Superkings got into all sorts of trouble after the first batting. Trent vault Adam Milne then picked up two wickets each and reduced CSK to 24/4 at the end of power play. To insult CSK’s injury, Ambati Rayudu had to retire from the duck’s injury after hitting his left hand. MS Dhoni nailed the pull shot, but struck the vault’s throat straight with his deep square legs.
It was the 81-run stands of Lutraj Gaikwad and Rabindra Jadeya that stabilized the ship for the Superkings. Gaikwad was cautious at first, but went from 41 balls to 50. From there, he stepped on the gas and remained undefeated with 58 balls 88 with 9 4s and 4 6s. Dwayne Bravo gained momentum in the innings with eight-ball 23 and raised CSK to 156 with 20 overs.
Saurabh Tiwary’s efforts are wasted
Quinton de Cock started MI’s launch chase with three fours. Deepak Chahar I trapped him plumply in front of me. Anmolpreet Singh, which opened on behalf of Rohit Sharma, looked promising, but became Chahar’s second victim. Suryakumar Yadav tried to clear the infield, but found Faf du Plessis on the way. Ishan Kishan became Bravo’s first victim on Bravo’s second birth.
Josh Hazlewood kicked him out of the LBW after Keeron Polard smashed Jadeya six times downtown. Krunal Pandya had to face the unlucky side because he ran out at the end of the striker. After that, Saurabh Tiwary was responsible for taking MI home. Left-handed earned 50 runs from 40 balls in five fours, but to his disappointment, his efforts were not enough for the Superkings to win the encounter.
