While chasing the small target of 98 runs, Mumbai didn’t get a good start in the powerplay. Mukesh Choudhary dismissed Ishan Kishan in the first over of the run chase. A few overs later, Rohit Sharma also followed. Rohit once again failed to create his impact with the bat.

Daniel Sams was promoted to counterattack in the powerplay,  but he couldn’t score much. Debutant Triston Stubbs failed to open his account. Mukesh Choudhary picked up 3 wickets in the Powerplay to open a window for CSK. Tilak and Hrithik had a big responsibility on their shoulders to take MI home safely.

The youngster from Hyderabad, who has been impressive in IPL 2022, didn’t disappoint today as well. Tilak Verma played brilliant innings of 34* runs to safely negotiate the danger. In the end, Tim David hit 2 huge sixes to finish the match for Mumbai Indians.

Daniel Sams 3 wicket haul restricts CSK to 97 runs

After being invited to bat first, CSK got a terrible start in the powerplay, losing five wickets in the powerplay. Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devon Conway, Ambati Rayudu, Moeen Ali, Robin Uthappa and Shivam Dube all were dismissed cheaply. CSK never got the momentum in their innings due to regular wickets falling.

MS Dhoni was the only player from Chennai Super Kings, who fought till the end. He scored 36* runs to take CSK to a total of 98 runs. However, this total was never going to be enough. Daniel Sams picked up three important wickets while Riley Meredith grabbed two crucial wickets.
