Chennai Super Kings (114/9)

Ruturaj Gaikwad (0/5): Trent Boult to Ruturaj Gaikwad, OUT! LBW! Trent Boult has done a fantastic job for his side here. Chennai are 1 down without even opening their account. On a good length on middle and leg, Gaikwad looked to tuck that on the leg side but misses to get hit on the pads. Boult appeals fervently for a LBW but it is turned down. He has a long chat with Pollard and the big man, the skipper in this game, finally flashes the T. It goes upstairs and Ball Tracker shows THREE REDS. Gaikwad has to make his way back.

Faf du Plessis (1/7): Trent Boult to Faf du Plessis, OUT! TAKEN! Another one bites the dust. Chennai crumbling like ninepins here. Full and outside off, Faf  looks to slash hard at it. But he ends up getting an outside edge. It goes to de Kock who takes it with ease.

Ambati Rayudu (2/3): Jasprit Bumrah to Ambati Rayudu, OUT! TAKEN! Up in the air…. and gone! Wicket No. 98 for Bumrah in the League. Shortish ball on top of the stumps, Rayudu looks to pull but gets it off the glove. It lobs in the air just to the left of de Kock. The keeper takes it with ease.

Narayan Jagadeesan (0/1): Jasprit Bumrah to Narayan Jagadeesan, OUT! CAUGHT! 2 in 2 for Bumrah. He is on a hat-trick now. He is also just one wicket away from 100 wickets in the League. Full and outside off, inviting Jagadeesan for the drive. The batsman falls for the trap. Ends up getting an outside edge, it goes a bit low to Suryakumar Yadav at second slip. SKY lunges forward a bit to take it. 

MS Dhoni (16/16): Rahul Chahar to MS Dhoni, OUT! CAUGHT! Got to feel for Chennai in this season, nothing is really going their way. Dhoni’s eyes lit up there but he only got an edge on it. Tossed up outside off, the legbreak, Dhoni looked to whack that over covers but there was a lot of spin there. Dhoni does not read that well, it takes the outside edge and de Kock pouches onto it.

Ravindra Jadeja (7/6): Trent Boult to Ravindra Jadeja, OUT! CAUGHT! Ohh… he has hit it straight to the fielder! Chennai have never lost 5 wickets inside the Powerplay but it has been that sort of a season for them this one. Shortish ball on off, it does not bounce as much off the surface though. Jadeja skips down the track and pulls it but does not time it well. It goes low to Krunal Pandya at short mid-wicket who takes it safely.

Sam Curran (52/47): Trent Boult to Sam Curran, OUT! CLEANED HIM UP! Boult has 4 wickets. But it is a fine innings from Sam Curran, 52 runs from 47 balls. Boult knows that Curran will move across to the off side and hence bowls a yorker on the off pole. Curran moves to the off side and looks to flick on seeing the yorker length. He though misses and the off pole is knocked out. CHENNAI FINISH ON 114/9.

Deepak Chahar (0/5): Rahul Chahar to Deepak Chahar, OUT! STUMPED! It is just chaos out there. If you are a Chennai fan, you do not want to be seeing this anymore. It is also impressive umpiring because the square leg umpire has given the stumping out without referring it upstairs. Even Deepak Chahar kept walking without choosing to have a look at it. Rahul tosses the legbreak outside off, Deepak looks to heave that over wide long on but misses. De Kock collects and effects the stumping. He appeals and the square leg umpire raises his finger. Replays roll in and….. yes, Deepak was well outside his crease playing the shot and during the time of whipping the bails.

Shardul Thakur (11/20): Nathan Coulter-Nile to Shardul Thakur, OUT! CAUGHT! Wicket No. 8 falls for Chennai. They are going in deeper trouble. Shortish ball outside off, Thakur looks to go over point for a boundary. But he ends up hitting it uppishly towards backward point. Suryakumar Yadav there takes it with ease.

Imran Tahir* (13/10): Trent Boult to Sam Curran, OUT! CLEANED HIM UP! Boult has 4 wickets. But it is a fine innings from Sam Curran, 52 runs from 47 balls. Boult knows that Curran will move across to the off side and hence bowls a yorker on the off pole. Curran moves to the off side and looks to flick on seeing the yorker length. He though misses and the off pole is knocked out. CHENNAI FINISH ON 114/9.

Mumbai Indians (116/0)

Quinton de Kock* (46/37) and Ishan Kishan* (68/37): Shardul Thakur to Quinton de Kock, FOUR! De Kock finishes the game in style! Good length ball on middle and off, Quinton uses the angle to pull it over square leg to get a boundary. MUMBAI WIN BY 10 WICKETS!
