MI is having a hard time in this season of IPL as they even surpassed the joint record of Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Daredevils (now Delhi Capitals) who started off their tournament with six defeats in 2019 and 2013 respectively. On the other hand, the second most successful team of IPL, Chennai Super Kings also didn’t have the perfect start of the tournament.

CSK too didn’t have a steady start, as both the opener went for a duck but were later saved by a steady partnership from Rayudu (40 off 35) and Uthappa (30 off 25). However, MI did bring back the match to their end for a while and starched it till the last over, but the classic knock by the finisher of India, MS Dhoni made CSK win the match in the last ball.

Dhoni played a crucial knock and made 28 runs from 13 balls. The cricket fraternity applauded Dhoni for finishing off in style yet again. After the match was over even the opposite captain, Rohit Sharma congratulated the former skipper for his magnificent play. Talking about the same during the post-match presentation, Rohit said that somehow MI was able to score a reasonable target but the knock by MS Dhoni and Pretorius made the difference.

On the other hand, the CSK captain Ravindra Jadeja was in all praises for Dhoni. He said, “Yes! we were tensed the way that game was turning. But as a team we knew that the great finisher was there on the field and if he played till the last ball, then he can definitely finish the match for us. MS Dhoni showed the world that he’s still here and can still finish off in style.”

Lucknow Super Giants defeated Mumbai Indians by 18 runs at Wankhede Stadium on Friday. Mumbai Indians were set to chase a target of 215 runs and were restricted to 196 for 6. Earlier, Nicholas Pooran scored 75 runs off 29 balls as the Lucknow Super Giants posted a total of 214 for the loss of 6 wickets in 20 overs.

The Lucknow Super Giants needed to beat Mumbai Indians with a margin of over 300 runs to stay alive in playoff race but they could only reach 214. KL Rahul also played a crucial knock of 55 runs off 41 deliveries. In defence of the total, Ravi Bishnoi picked up 2 important wickets and gave just 37 runs and played a pivotal role for the Lucknow Super Giants.

Mumbai Indians’s chase started slowly with just 33 runs in 23 balls before the match ended due to rain. The game resumed after a 45-minute break as Rohit Sharma hit 2 consecutive boundaries to Mohsin Khan. Mumbai Indians managed to increase the run rate after the break, courtesy of some brilliant hitting by Rohit and Dewald Brevis, as they took the score to 53 by the end of the Powerplay. The former skipper reached his half-century with a 6 to Mohsin off just 28 balls.

Naveen-ul-Haq provided the opening breakthrough to Lucknow Super Giants with the dismissal of Brewis. Protea tried clearing the long-off boundary but mistimed the ball. Krunal Pandya, who was standing on the long off had to run and cover a few yards to take a diving catch at the end.

Suryakumar Yadav came at number 3 but did not last for too long as he was dismissed after 3 deliveries.  The Lucknow Super Giants captain KL Rahul may have pre-empted Surya’s shot because just before the wicket ball was bowled, Rahul asked the square leg fielder (Ravi Bishnoi) to move towards his left.
