In a low-scoring thriller, Mumbai Indians (MI) on Thursday defeated Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by 5 wickets. Whenever the most successful teams in the IPL, CSK, and MI met, we witnessed thrillers. Sometimes the bowlers amazed us and sometimes the batters. This season is not good for both of them, but after a few games, we knew they will prepare for the next season. Here are the key highlights of the game:
1. MI won the toss and elected to bowl first against CSK
2. CSK lost half of their wickets in the powerplay. None of the batsmen were able to stay against Daniel Sams, Jasprit Bumrah, and Riley Meredith.
3. Only, CSK skipper MS Dhoni was able to stay and he made 36 runs off 33.
