Chennai Super Kings twice in two overs after a solid opening partnership between Mumbai Indians’ openers Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock. After Shardul Thakur dismissed Rohit Sharma, Ravindra Jadeja struck in his first over to remove Suryakumar Yadav. The left-arm spinner struck in his first over to deliver a crucial breakthrough.
The dismissal occurred in the ninth over when Ravindra Jadeja delivered a regulation ball outside off. The right-handed batsman flirted with it outside off; however, he merely managed to get an edge, which MS Dhoni snaffled by crouching low. Yadav had a vital role to play in the scheme of things, but he managed only three runs in as many balls.
Chennai Super Kings managed to amass a mammoth 219 after losing the toss, driven by half-centuries from Moeen Ali, Faf Du Plessis, and Ambati Rayudu. Rayudu top-scored and remained unbeaten at 72 from 27 deliveries, with Jasprit Bumrah surprisingly recording figures of 4-0-56-1. The Super Kings smashed 16 sixes in total to thwart the esteemed Mumbai Indians’ bowling attack.
