MUMBAI INDIAN INNINGS
MI 155/7 in 20 overs: Bravo starts with a wide. Unadkat gets a ledge that rolls down to the third man’s fence. The Saurashtra skipper then records a cracking maximum. Not quite the mid draw, but it has enough to sail into the stands. Two of the last ball while CSK puts 99 in the back of 10.
MI 139/7 in 19 overs: Tilak goes to the center of the very first ball that moves within three of his fifty! Hits the target of 42 balls. Fifth drop of the day as Dube now drops a dolly. Unadkat heaves a sigh of relief.

MI 89/5 in 14 overs: Bravo and Uthappa combine to finally give CSK the wicket it’s been looking for. Shokeen just can’t keep riding his luck forever. Miscue half way through.

Pollard opens the clubface of his bat to guide the ball through the third man and get four of the very first ball.
MI 84/4 in 13 overs: Shokeen finds the hole at deep extra cover. This is stylish hitting from the all-rounder from Delhi.
MI 74/4 in 12 overs: Santner starts with a short ball. Shokh pulls a swivel to hammer this into the fence. JADEJA HAS LEFT ANOTHER SITTER. Yes, you read that right. It reflects the kind of season CSK is going through.
MI 69/4 in 11 overs: Tilak gets on one knee to push Mumbai the much-needed boundary of Jadeja’s bowling alley. Shokeen meanwhile slyly leads a wide delivery down the first slip and down third man for four.
MI 56/4 in 10 overs: Pretorius changes his pace with each delivery. Tilak and Shokeen continue to tap the scoreboard with risk-free strokes.
MI 52/4 in 9 overs: Jadeja continues. Shokeen ran ahead of Pollard here. Interesting choice. Meanwhile, Jaddu has slipped into another silent one – three of them. Time for the strategic timeout.
MI 49/4 in 8 overs: Santner is on the attack again. AWAY! Suryakumar Yadav goes out. Big wicket. MI slips further away. Debutant Hrithik Shokeen comes to the fold. Clean from Santner, three runs and a wicket.

MI 42/3 in 6 overs: theekshana. Suryakumar Yadav cleverly sweeps for six. Good comeback from the Lankan. Five of the next four.
MI 31/3 in 5 overs: Mukesh could have had a fourth here. But Tilak was dropped on 2 by Bravo on the first slip. Worse, CSK admits a limit. Brilliant from Mukesh. Only four of the fifth left.
MI 27/3 in 4 overs: Time for some off spin. Theekshana on the attack. A decent over, this one, with only four singles coming out.
MI 23/3 in 3 overs: Through the covers… Suryakumar goes for the elegant ride again. Four more. Surya and Brevis manage to run three while the first hits one over midwicket. Mukesh’s third! The pacer spits fire… The easiest nicks carry to Dhoni behind the sticks. Brevis runs.
MI 14/2 in 2 overs: Beaten! Santner manages to sneak one under Suryakumar’s knife. Dhoni, blinded by Suryakumar, misses a stupid opportunity. Four! SKY skimmed one off with extra coverage. Jadeja drops Brevis at 2. A nanny.
MI 6/2 in 1 about: Mukesh starts off with a toe breaker that Rohit just manages to dig out. Away! Rohit dies for nothing. A ball of hitting length and Rohit stabs it half way to Santner. Brevis replaces his skipper at the crease. After a loud call, CSK decides not to go for an assessment of caught arrears. The giant screen shows no peak. Another scorching yorker sees Kishan’s backside… Encased in front of a golden duck. This is bad news for Mumbai. SKY comes way too early. He immediately runs off with a limit.
Rohit and Ishan open the battle. Mukesh to keep things going for Chennai. Let’s go play!

WHAT THE CAPTAINS SAID
Rohit Sharma: The surfaces have changed a bit. The teams have won here in the last 3-4 matches. We have made three changes. Riley Meredith makes his debut for Mumbai, Hrithik Shokeen is an off-spinner and on his debut Daniel Sams returns. We’re going to see if we can find the right balance. There is a little bounce. We try to keep things as simple as possible and not overcomplicated.
Ravindra Jadeja: Let’s go bowling first. The wicket looks a bit damp and we would like to take advantage of that. It may twist a little initially and the dew may come in the second half. Pretorius and Santner replace Moeen and Jordan.

MI vs CSK PITCH REPORT
“The dimensions are 73m on one side and 77m on the other, we are pretty much the center of this venue. This pitch was used early in the tournament where Punjab defeated Kings RCB in a massive chase. Expect lots of runs It’s a bit dry, nice and hard and there’s a lot of grass on it, but the big question will be whether the captain who wins the toss bats first,” said Matthew Hayden.
MI vs CSK MATCH Preview
Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians – the two heavyweights of IPL with nine titles between them – find themselves languishing at the bottom of the points list as they take on Thursday at DY Patil Stadium.
As Mumbai succumbed to its sixth straight defeat to Lucknow Super Giants and recorded its longest losing streak, Chennai smelled the win but lost the scent to Gujarat Titans.
A failed top order and debauchery with the ball in the death-overs plagued both sides. Ishan Kishan has scored 56 runs in his last four innings, while MI skipper Rohit Sharma failed to convert a quick start into big scores, scoring 114 runs in six innings.

Ruturaj Gaikwad was back among the runs against Gujarat after scoring 35 runs in the first five games, but will have to provide consistent support to the in-form Robin Uthappa. The number three was a concern for CSK, with Moeen Ali scoring 87 runs in five innings.
Chris Jordan’s 25-run 18th over sank CSK against Titans, while MI’s Tymal Mills leaked 21 runs in the 19th, which proved decisive against LSG. Mumbai’s economy rate of 13.30 in the death overs is the worst this season, while CSK has fallen to 11.89 during this period.
Shivam Dube, whose 46-ball unbeaten 95 against Royal Challengers Bangalore gave Bangalore CSK the lone win, will be the key player to watch out for. Mumbai is counting on Suryakumar Yadav, the leading run scorer in IPL 2022.
