MI vs CSK: MI beats CSK by 5 wickets to knock them out of the Playoffs Race

CSK vs MI Live Score: An all-round show guided Mumbai Indians to their third win in the IPL 2022. Stellar partnerships between Hrithik Shokeen & Tilak Verma accompanied by a fierce bowling attack guided Mumbai Indians to a five wikcets win over CSK at the Wankhede Stadium on Thursday. With this loss, CSK are officially out of the Playoffs race

MS Dhoni’s unbeaten 36 goes in vain as CSK gets bowled at 97

Sent in to bat first, CSK were bundled for a poor 97 runs in 16 overs, thanks to a fierce pace attack by Mumbai Indians. Except Dhoni, none of CSK’s big guns- Ruturaj Gaikwad (7), Robin Uthappa (1) Ambati Rayudu (10), Moeen Ali (0), Conway (0) could create an impression with the bat. As a result, CSK lost half of the side within the powerplay overs with just 39 runs on board.

CSK’s lone fighter MS Dhoni stitched a brief stand with Dwayne Bravo to revive CSK’s already submerged innings. But Bravo-Dhoni’s blooming stand was soon broken by Kumar Karthekiya for 12 runs, leaving CSK in a state of bother. Wickets kept falling at regular intervals but Dhoni at one end held firm & fought for his team till the end.

He smashed boundaries to keep CSK’s scoreboard ticking but failed to guide their side to a decent total with a lack of support from another end. Dhoni stayed unbeaten on 36 runs off 33 balls & with the tailenders inability to contribute much, CSK were bowled out for 97 runs.

For Mumbai Indians, Daniel Sams was the best bowler who returned with figures of 3-16 followed by Riley Meredith (2-27) and Kumar Kartikeya (2-22).

Tilak-Shokeen heroics guided MI over the line in 15 overs

In reply, Mumbai Indians got off to a poor start as they lost early wickets in the chase of 98 runs. CSK bounced back strongly with Mukesh Chaudhary scalping crucial wickets of Ishan Kishan (6), Daniel Sams (1), and Tristan Stubbs (0) while Simarjeet too returned with the prized wicket of Rohit Sharma  (18) to leave CSK reeling at 33-4 in 4.3 overs.

With half of their side back to the pavilion, MI were in need of a stable stand & Tilak Verma & Hrithik Shokeen exactly did the same by piling up runs for MI & guiding the team to a solid 66-4 after the end of 10 overs. Hrithik Shokeen got bowled after scoring 18 off 23 balls but Tilak Verma stayed till the end & contributed to MI’s third win of the season.

Tim David on the other end smashed the winning runs for MI by hitting two sixes off Moeen Ali’s delivery in the 15th over. Tilak Verma stayed unbeaten on 34 off 32 balls while Tim David too contributed by scoring an unbeaten 16 off 7 balls. For Chennai, the best bowler was Mukesh Choudhary who scalped three crucial wickets for 23 runs in the allotted 20 overs.

With this win, Mumbai Indians now have six points in their kitty & are still at the bottom of the Points Table while CSK are officially out of the Playoffs Race with eight points in their kitty from four wins.
