It is yet another humiliating loss for Chennai Super Kings as they went down to their arch-rivals for the first time in IPL 2020.
Despite making changes to the playing XI, Chennai couldn’t find the right rhythm as it was Mumbai’s game right from the start. Boult and Bumrah were just too good for the Chennai batter as they reduced the team for 3 for 4.
A tiny partnership between the middle-order players took the team past the number 49. What followed was an excellent knock under pressure from Sam Curran who scored a fifty to take the team to 114.
In return, it looked like Mumbai batted on a different surface as the openers went on to win the match for the team.
In the absence of Rohit Sharma, Pollard led the team and Ishan Kishan opened the innings.
Kishan went on to score an unbeaten 68 while De Kock managed 46*. With this, Chennai’s campaign is practically over.
