The 41st match of the Indian Premier League was played between arch-rivals Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians. The three-time champions were already having a nightmarish season before things turned worse for them. MI crushed them by 10 wickets and 46 balls to spare. Batting first, CSK kicked off on a terrible note where they lost their five wickets within power play only. They could only post a meagre 114 on the board.
Young Sam Curran proved to be the one-man army as he smashed 52 off 47 to push the team’s limits. None of the batters apart from him could bring anything respectable on the table. Trent Boult was named as the player of the match as he victimized batsmen with his deadly pace attack. He conceded just 18 runs to pick four crucial wickets. Jasprit Bumrah and Rahul Chahar picked two wickets each for the Mumbai Indians.
Kishan displayed some brilliant stuff for MI
In order to hunt the target, the spectacular opening stand of Quinton de Kock (46* off 37) and Ishan Kishan (68* off 37) proved to be enough. Their heroics finished the game for MI in style- and Kishan walked the field with all the courage to prove the decision of sending him as an opener, perfect. All the bowlers of CSK failed terribly to pick even a single wicket today.
Who has Orange and Purple Cap?
After CSK vs MI clash, the defending champions are back again on the top of the points table. They are followed by Delhi Capitals at the 2nd place. 3rd and 4th slots in the points tally are sealed by Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders.
