CHENNAI SUPER KINGS
LOCATION – Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai
Chennai Super Kings defeated Mumbai Indians in Mumbai with a resounding victory. MI gave the squad a great start, scoring 61 runs while on the power play. Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma both had great starts but were unable to capitalise on them. The spinners Mitchell Santner and Ravindra Jadeja caused a change in the flow of momentum past the MI top and middle order.5 wickets totaled by left-arm spin, conceding only 48 runs in 8 overs. Tim David’s cameo of 31 helped MI reach a good total of 157, which was always a challenge to defend against csk’s strong batting lineup. The early breakthrough that MI required was given by Jason Behrendorff, but Ajinkya Rahane had other ideas.The local youth stole the game from the Mumbai Indians during the powerplay with a 19-ball fifty. While Ruturaj played second fiddle and finished unbeaten on 40, Rahane scored 61 off of 27. In the end, CSK easily prevailed by 7 wickets with 11 balls remaining!
RAVINDRA JADEJA is the Player of the Match
Ravindra Jadeja: “The odd ball was twisting when we were bowling. Because there are so many power hitters there, Mitch and I wanted to bowl in good areas. Every time we visit this location, the wicket plays differently; occasionally it is flat and occasionally it is sticky. I and Santner discuss every aspect of the game, and whoever starts gives the other player advice on how far to throw the ball. We continue to exchange ideas and counsel.
