The flip of the coin favoured home captain MS Dhoni, who chose to field. “We’ll bowl first. A bit of rain expected, that’s one reason. Looks like a good wicket and we want them to set a target for us,” Dhoni said.
Rohit Sharma, who is not having the best of seasons, chose to pass the opening slot to Cameron Green. The last time he didn’t open for MI was 62 innings ago in 2018 against Delhi Capitals.
The plan to shuffle the batting order bombed as Mumbai Indians lost three wickets for 14 runs. Deepak Chahar, who has just come back post a period of injury, removed Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma in the same over.
Chennai Super Kings’ Matheesha Pathirana finished with the best figures - 3/15 - as Mumbai Indians registered its joint-second lowest total against CSK (139/8). Pathirana was later named the ‘Player of the Match’.
Look who just moved to the top of the Purple Cap leaderboard. Presenting to you, Mr. Tushar Deshpande with 19 wickets to his name!
Devon Conway played another innings of note, scoring 44 on a sluggish track to move to the second spot of the Orange Cap leaderboard.
It had to be MS Dhoni! The CSK skipper, fittingly, finished the procession with a single and 14 balls to spare.
