With a target of 219, MI openers Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock started off the match with an optimistic note striking at 10 runs per over in the powerplay. MI was successful in scoring 15 off Chahar in the 3rd over as de Kock smashed the first six of MI’s innings.
On the other hand, CSK, who were put in to bat first, lost Ruturaj Gaikwad in the opening over. Trent Boult then provided MI with an early wicket after the CSK opener was caught inside the circle. However, CSK did not allow the pressure to kick in after du Plessis and Moeen Ali clubbed a six each against Kulkarni and Boult respectively.
Further, Moeen added two more fours followed by a six against Bumrah with a flick of the wrists in the 5th over. The left-hander finished the powerplay with a four and CSK were 49/1 after 6 overs.
Rayudu and Jadeja then made a key partnership, with CSK approaching towards the end of the innings. Rayudu launched Chahar for a maximum in the 15th over followed by two huge hits down the ground against Kulkarni.
Bumrah conceded 21 runs in the 17th over. While Jadeja hit a four, Rayudu finished the over with 2 sixes and a four off a free hit. Rayudu scored 24 runs and finished off the innings with a four and six each thus making MI proud!
