Hello and welcome to Sportstar's LIVE coverage of Match 41 of IPL 2020 between Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium in Sharjah.
Mumbai Indians beat Chennai Super Kings by 10 wickets.
MI 111/0 after 12 overs: De Kock and Ishan doing in singles and Mumbai requires just three runs to win.
MI 108/0 after 11 overs: De Kock joins the party with a superb six over mid-off and Mumbai requires just seven runs to win.
MI 98/0 after 10 overs: Ishan Kishan is in such fine form and has hit Imran Tahir straight over the bowler's head for a massive six. There is no stopping Mumbai.
MI 89/0 after 9 overs: Ishan Kishan brings his half-century with a reverse-hit off Jadeja and then hammers the spinner for yet another maximum. Mumbai in cruise mode.
MI 74/0 after 8 overs: Ishan Kishan smokes Imran Tahir high over long-on for a maximum and Mumbai is going strong in the 115 run chase.
MI 64/0 after 7 overs: This game has almost run away from Chennai as De Kock joins the party with a maximum and that's a huge one. Chennai needs a miracle, Mumbai 51 in 78 balls.
MI 52/0 after 6 overs: Imran Tahir bowls an excellent over but Chennai's search for wickets continue. The fifty is up for Mumbai and that ends the PowerPlay.
MI 47/0 after 5 overs: Ishan Kishan has ripped apart Deepak Chahar as he smashes him for 17 runs to give Mumbai a thunderous start. First, Ishan unleashes a fierce cut behind point and then drives through the off-side with tremendous power before finishing the over with a brilliant pull over deep square leg.
MI 30/0 after 4 overs: Sloppy from Gaikwad as he lets Ishan Kishan pocket a boundary and then an edge flies way over Faf du Plessis. Chennai in need of wickets.
MI 22/0 after 3 overs: Quinton de Kock survives a top-edge and Chennai needs wickets to have any chance in this game.
MI 17/0 after 2 overs: Ishan Kishan is off the mark with a couple of boundaries as he punishes after Josh Hazlewood errs in length.
MI 8/0 after 1 over: Quinton de Kock is away with a boundary as Deepak Chahar tries to purchase some swing. Ishan Kishan is yet to get off the mark.
Right then MS Dhoni is very animated in the huddle and out come the MI openers - It will be Ishan Kishan along with Quinton de Kock... For CSK it will be Deepak Chahar with the new ball.
End of Innings: CSK posts 114/9 after 20 overs.
Superb effort from Sam Curran as given the situation Chennai was in, it was heading towards getting associated with some unwanted records. Curran hit a brilliant 47-ball 52 but Trent Boult registers his best figures in IPL4-1-18-4 as Mumbai is favourite to win the clash. However, can't rule out Chennai as quick wickets can bring MS Dhoni's team back in the game.
LISTEN | In this week's episode of MatchPoint Paradox IPL special, we discuss CSK 's abysmal run this season, how the season has been a battle of captains all along and how the points table looks as the playoffs draw closer.
CSK 101/8 after 19 overs: Excellent recovery, given the position Chennai was in as Imran Tahir with an upper cut brings the 100 up for Chennai.
CSK 93/8 after 18 overs: This is brilliant from Sam Curran and his 39-ball 37, so far, has given Chennai some sort of respectable total.
CSK 82/8 after 17 overs: Sam Curran and Imran Tahir eye to play out the remaining three overs as Chennai avoids its lowest ever total of 79.
CSK 73/8 after 16 overs: The lowest score by CSK was 79 versus Mumbai in 2013. Now can it cross that mark as Imran Tahir joins Sam Curran.
CSK 71/8 after 15 overs: Nathan Coulter-Nile picks a wicket and that will be the end of Shardul Thakur.
CSK 67/7 after 14 overs: Curran and Shardul doing the right thing as both batsmen are banking on singles rather than playing reckless cricket and Chennai would be happy to post anything close to 100.
CSK 63/7 after 13 overs: Rahul Chahar finishes his quota with 4-0-22-2 as Shardul and Curran are trying to play out the remaining overs.
CSK 60/7 after 12 overs: Chennai has avoided the humiliation of being bowled out for the lowest total. Chahar and Curran biding time and are ticking the scorecard.
CSK 56/7 after 11 overs: Rahul Chahar slips in yet another quiet over as he concedes just four from his third over.
CSK 52/7 after 10 overs: Sam Curran saves some embarrassment as he brings the 50 up for Chennai with a six.
CSK 44/7 after 9 overs: Rahul Chahar picks his second wicket and Deepak Chahar departs for a duck. It has been shambolic from the Chennai batsmen.
CSK 32/6 after 8 overs: Nathan Coulter-Nile into the attack and he gives just two from his opening over. Deepak Chahar and Sam Curran need to at least bat the entire 20 overs.
CSK 30/6 after 7 overs: This game is as good as over as Rahul Chahar removes Dhoni. The Chennai skipper smacked the spinner for a maximum and then tried repeating the same shot only to find an edge to Quinton de Kock behind the stumps. Can CSK reach at least 50, remains to be seen.
CSK 24/5 after 6 overs: This is the first time in IPL history CSK lost 5 wickets in the PowerPlay. On a wicket where an excess of 200 has been scored, Chennai's top-order fell apart as Mumbai attacked with Trent Boult and Jasprit Bumrah. The pacers just tore Chennai apart. Dhoni is joined by Sam Curran.
CSK 21/4 after 5 overs: Krunal Pandya slips in an excellent over and Chennai's hope lies in the pair of Jadeja and Dhoni.
CSK 18/4 after 4 overs: Dhoni gets going as he spanks Bumrah for a couple of boundaries and then Jadeja finds some rhythm with a boundary. Chennai needs these two batsmen to build a partnership first.
CSK 5/4 after 3 overs: You need to watch to believe! Chennai four down with just five runs on the board and this has been a procession from the Chennai batsmen. There is absolutely no intent and the poor shot from Faf du Plessis said it all. Boult picks his second wicket as Ravindra Jadeja joins Dhoni.
CSK 3/3 after 2 overs: Chennai in early trouble as Jasprit Bumrah strikes twice to bring MS Dhoni early into the crease. Bumrah first gets Rayudu with a bumper and then removes Jagadeesan for a duck. Poor execution from Jagadeesan as he chases an away delivery and gets a thick outside edge as Suryakumar Yadav swallows at first slip. There was a plan and Bumrah executed perfectly.
CSK 0/1 after 1 over: What an excellent start from Trent Boult as he starts with wicket-maiden and young Ruturaj Gaikwad pockets a duck, yet again. He was all over the place and Boult after bowling the outswingers, gets one in and Gaikwad plays all over it to be trapped in front. Mumbai went for the review and three dots meant, the umpire had to reverse his decision. Ambati Rayudu joins Du Plessis.
The Mumbai Indians take to the field and out come the Chennai openers - Faf du Plessis and Ruturaj Gaikwad. It will be Trent Boult with the new ball.

The Indian Premier League's (IPL) fabled rivalry will return when
Chennai Super Kings takes on
Mumbai Indians in Sharjah on Friday. The two teams kick-started the tournament in Abu Dhabi on September 19 but the outcome of that match has not correlated with how the two teams have fared since then.
In the inaugural match, CSK defeated the defending champion by five wickets but, it has all been downhill since then with the Men in Yellow, winning just two of its next nine matches. A defeat on Friday will all but end the Super Kings' chance of qualifying for the playoffs. It needs to win its remaining four games and hope for some favourable outcomes from other teams.
