MI vs CSK match result: Vintage Mahi pulls off a nerve-wracking finish

Keeping the IPL 2022 traditions intact, CSK won the toss and decided to bowl. CSK’s Mukesh Chaudhary dismissed the dangerous Rohit Sharma for a golden duck in the second ball of the inning. With which Sharma achieved the highest ranking in the list of most ducks in IPL. The fifth ball of the inning and Chaudhary rattles the stumps of Ishan Kishan and becomes the first CSKian to dismiss 2 wickets in the first over. Chaudhary strikes again in the fourth over as he sends back Dewald Brevis for 4. Then on, MI’s inning was stabilised by the partnership of Surya Kumar and Tilak Varma, but not for long. Santner managed another breakthrough and halted this budding partnership as he dismissed Surya for 32 and Mumbai was strangled at 47/4. But with Tilak hitting a crucial half-century and Pollard and Unadkat’s cameos Mumbai got bail out of a precarious situation and posted 155/7.

With 3 needed on the last ball, the finisher smacks the ball for a boundary taking Chennai past the finish line.
