It’s Ambati Rayudu’s unbeaten 27 ball 72 runs that ensured Chennai reach a fighting total of 218. Earlier in the innings, Faf du Plessis continued his splendid form with yet another half century in 28 balls with 2 fours and 4 sixes. Moeen Ali too showcased his batting skills with 58 runs in 36 balls with 5 fours and equal number of sixes. Pollards two wickets in two overs is the silver lining for Mumbai indians.
Quinton de Kock (38) and Rohit Sharma (35) laid a good foundation supported by Krunal Pandya (32) Mumbai Indians lost wickets at regular intervals. Then the power hitting by Kieron Pollard (87, 34b, 6×4, 8×6) has turned the tide in favour of MI. Requiring 16 runs in the last over, Pollard has hit a six, two fours and a brace in the last over of Ngidi to romp home in a thrilling encounter. Sam Curran (3/37) is the main wicket taker while Lungi Ngidi conceded awful 62 runs in his 4 overs for CSK.
