Defending champions Mumbai Indians beat Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the IPL 2020 contest on Friday to put one foot in the play-offs. Mumbai Indians chased down the paltry total in 13 overs by 10 wickets to spare registering 14 points in the IPL 2020 points table — tied with Delhi Capitals and Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Asked to bat, CSK batting line-up registered a collapse as they were 71/8 before English all-rounder Sam Curran held the fort for his side and notched up a half-century. His 47-ball 52 runs knock was laced with four boundaries and two hits over the fence. Imran Tahir who remained unbeaten on 13 runs played a perfect second fiddle to him.

Sam Curran, a silver-lining in the CSK fall, was praised by the fans for his brilliant effort in the game.
