It was Wednesday evening, when two of the most balanced and destructive teams clashed with each other. They are considered to be one of the contender to win this tournament, yes we are talking about Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians. It’s been always amazing to watch these two taking on each other on the field.

The stage was set in Wankhede stadium, Mumbai. It was Chennai who won the toss and they elected to bowl first. Jason Behrendroff and  Rahul Chahar got their first game in place of Mitchell mcclenaghan and Mayank markande.

It was Deepak Chahar who started proceedings for the Chennai.

It’s always difficult to play when the ball is swinging and MI got the early breakthrough by dismissing the dangerous and in-form batsman Quinton de Kock. Surya Kumar Yadav walked next who looked great from the beginning. But from the start, the skipper Rohit Sharma was struggling and lost his wicket in 7th over of the game. Yuvraj also disappointed the crowd as he made 4 runs in 6 balls. Then walked Krunal Pandya on the crease. He was looking iffy but still manage to built a crucial 72 runs partnership with Surya Kumar Yadav. Yadav was also after scoring 59 runs of 43 balls. The stage was set for pollard and Hardik, as the duo had 2 overs left in the inning. They both played demolition innings, as they scored 45 runs in last 2 overs where Hardik scored 29 runs in the last over. MI put 175 on the board with the loss of 5 wickets.

CSK started miserably as they 2 lost early wickets with just 6 runs on the board. Suresh Raina who also lost his wicket in search of some quick runs. In the span of 5 over CSK lost their top 3 batsman. The situation got worst for the visitors as they are unable to score quick runs. With 86 required in the final 6. They need atleast 2 giant overs to be in the game. Kedhar Jadhav scored a nervous half century but that wasn’t enough.

CSK collapsed on 133 and they lost the game by 37 runs. For his prodigious inning of 25 runs in 8 balls and scalping 3 wickets in his 4 overs, Hardik Pandya was adjourned man of the match award.
