In this season’s 33rd of the Indian Premier League, MS Dhoni scored 16 runs off 4 balls in the final overs to guarantee victory against Mumbai Indians. Mumbai Indians winless streaks continue as Chennai Super Kings registered a rip-roaring win by three wickets at the Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy, Mumbai. The partnership of Dhoni and Pretorius bashed big blows when CSK needed 42 runs in the last three overs, then in the last over MS Dhoni finished off the match in style with a boundary.
Unfortunately, Jaydev Unadkat was the unlucky bowler to grant the 16 off the last over as MI surrendered to their seventh loss of IPL season 2022. Chasing the target of 156 runs to win, Daniel Sams recorded a defending performance while Robin Uthappa and Ambati Rayudu batted sensibly to take the game a long run whereas the entry of Dhoni provided the momentum to the game.
Mumbai Indians chose to bat first and Tilak Varma hit an amazing half-century in the first half, giving a kickstart to Mumbai Indians that put a score of 150-runs. Even after losing early wickets, Mumbai Indians posted the target of 155 runs off 7 wickets in 20 overs. The yellow army was looking to defend the score and register their second win, followed by being put in to bat by Ravindra Jadeja, MI was pushed by four early wickets by Mukesh Choudhary and Mitchell Santner in partnership. Mukesh Choudhry was in particular lethal form with the new ball and sent Rohit Sharma to the pavilion and Ishan Kishan in the first over of the match itself.
Even so, Tilak made good use of the relinquished chances and played a daring knock. Both Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings made two changes each. Rohit Sharma passed the cap to Riley Meredith and Hrithik Shokeen meanwhile, Moeen and Jordan cleared the way for Pretorius and Santner for CSK. In this season of the Indian Premier League (IPL), both CSK and MI have faced a lot of difficulties. After this loss, Mumbai Indians might get out of the league.
