Mumbai Indians (MI) young wicketkeeper-batsman, Ishan Kishan had some wicket-keeping lesson from his idol Mahendra Singh Dhoni soon after Mumbai thumped Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by eight wickets in latter’s second home in Pune on Saturday night.

As a result, Mumbai jumped to the sixth spot and kept their hopes of qualification alive. So far, Mumbai only managed to win only two games out the seven they have played in this eleventh edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

After a brilliant start by the openers Suryakumar Yadav and Evin Lewis, skipper Rohit Sharma guided his team through. He played an unbeaten knock of 56 runs as Mumbai cruised to an eight-wicket victory.

However, previously, the Super Kings posted 169 runs on the board while banking on Raina’s knock of 75 runs in particular. The southpaw’s return to form will certainly boost the Chennai camp.

Meanwhile, Mumbai bowlers did an amazing job in the death overs to restrict Chennai to a modest total.

This will give Mumbai a sigh of relief and they will look to bank on this going into the next game.
