The 59th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2022) was played between MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians (MI) at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Thursday, May 12.
Mumbai Indians were able to defeat Chennai Super Kings by 5 wickets to bag their 3rd victory in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022.
Earlier, Mumbai Indians won the toss and opted to field first and they made two changes to the playing XI as Tristan Stubbs replaced Kieron Pollard and Hrithik Shokeen replaced Murugan Ashwin. On the other hand, Chennai Super Kings made no changes to the playing XI.
After losing the toss and batting first, Chennai Super Kings were off to the worst possible start in the match against Mumbai Indians as they lost two huge wickets in the first over itself.
Mumbai Indians all-rounder Daniel Sams was able to dismiss in-form opening batsman Devon Conway for a golden duck and Moeen Ali for a 2-ball duck. Also, Robin Uthappa was cleaned up by Jasprit Bumrah in the 2nd over.
Notably, Conway and Uthappa got out LBW but they were unable to use DRS because it was unavailable for the first 4 overs of the match due to a power cut at the Wankhede Stadium.
Then, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) kept losing wickets at regular intervals and after 13 overs they were at 80/8. Mukesh Choudhary came out to bat with MS Dhoni after Maheesh Theekshana’s wicket but he was unable to survive for very long and got run out in the 16th over.
Chennai Super Kings (CSK) were bundled out for 97 and skipper MS Dhoni top-scored for his side as he scored 36* runs off 33 balls, including 4 fours and 2 sixes. Now, Chennai Super Kings’ top-3 lowest scores (79/10, 97/10 and 109/10) in IPL history have come against Mumbai Indians.
Chasing the target, Ishan Kishan was dismissed by Mukesh Choudhary in the first over itself. Also, Simarjeet Singh dismissed Rohit Sharma for 18 in the 4th over. The next two wickets of Daniel Sams and Tristan Stubbs also fell inside powerplay overs.
In the end, Tilak Varma batted amazingly well for Mumbai Indians and he finished off the game alongside Tim David to knock Chennai Super Kings out of the playoffs race.
