Daniel Sams wreaked havoc to break the back of Chennai Super Kings’s (CSK) as the four-time champions got bundled out for just 97 runs against Mumbai Indians (MI). Rohit Sharma and his men chased down the target in 14.5 overs to defeat CSK by five wickets in Match 59 of IPL 2022 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The result means the defending champions CSK are now officially eliminated from the playoffs race.
Speaking about how the ‘El Clasico’ of the IPL went by, Rohit won the toss and elected to field first. They made two changes with out-of-form Kieron Pollard getting replaced with youngster Tristan Stubbs and Murugan Ashwin made way for Hrithik Shokeen. CSK went into the game with the same playing XI from the last match. Sams dismissed both Devon Conway and Moeen Ali for a duck and Ruturaj Gaikwad for just seven runs. An unusual thing was witnessed as Conway couldn’t review his LBW dismissal due to a power failure at the Wankhede stadium, which sparked a controversy. The Men in Yellow then lost five wickets inside the powerplay and couldn’t get going.
Skipper MS Dhoni hung in and remained not out for 36 runs off 33 deliveries, which included four fours and two sixes. But he didn’t get any support from any of his other players as he saw his side getting bowled out in 16 overs. Riley Meredith and Kumar Kartikeya took two wickets apiece to hand CSK their second-lowest total in the history of the IPL. Interestingly, their lowest score of 79 all out also came against MI and at the same venue Wankhede Stadium in the year 2013.
Chasing just 98 to win, wicketkeeper-batter Ishan Kishan managed only six runs while Rohit had another bad day at the office for his 18 runs. Sams came in to bat at no. three and got out for just one run while debutant Stubbs grabbed a two-ball duck. Tilak Varma remained unbeaten on 34 runs off 32 deliveries and made sure he took his side home. With this loss, CSK became the second team after MI to get knocked out of the tournament. For his spell of 3/16 in four overs, Daniel Sams won the Player of the Match award.
