IPL 2020 MI Vs CSK Highlights - Fast&Up

CSK beat the Mumbai Indians and finally broke their losing run against MI as they were beaten in their last 4 encounters in the IPL.

In a nutshell:

Mahendra Singh Dhoni won the toss and put Mumbai Indians to bat first. The major highlights of Mumbai's innings were Quinton de Kock's 33 runs knock off 20 balls at the top and Saurabh Tiwary’s 42 off just 31 deliveries. For Chennai Lungi Ngidi who took 3 wickets for 38 runs was the most successful bowler. Among other bowlers, Ravindra Jadeja & Deepak Chahar grabbed 2 wickets apiece while Piyush Chawla and Sam Curran picked one each conceding 21 & 28 runs from their spells respectively.

After bundling MI to a challenging total of 162/9 earlier that evening, CSK had a shaky start to their run-chase. Murali Vijay and Shane Watson who opened the innings for CSK were dismissed in the first 2 overs itself making the scoreboard look like 6/2 for the start of the third over. Later du Plessis & Rayudu took a firm stand and built a concrete partnership. They both put on 115 runs for the third wicket, practically clinching away the game from MI.

Rayudu took the opposition for a ride, smashing six boundaries and three maximums in a 48-ball innings scoring 71 runs. While Faf du Plessis continued the rampage from his side smashing 58 just of 44 balls as they romped home with 4 balls left. However, Sam Curran launched a six-ball blinder (18 runs) to round-off any chances that MI might have visualized winning that match. Faf du Plessis had the last piece of the cake by hitting consecutive boundaries off the first 2 balls of the final over.
