Who Won Yesterday’s Match? Mukesh Choudhary, a left-arm pacer like Daniel Sams, bowled effectively with the new ball and took three wickets in the powerplay.
Mumbai Indians were reduced to 33/4 in pursuit of a meager total, and there were a few unhappy faces in their camp. That’s when Tilak Varma and Hrithik Shokeen, two young men, joined hands.
After dismissing Mukesh and Simarjeet, who bowled out their quota in the first eight overs, the pair batted well to put up a 48-run fifth-wicket stand, thus ending CSK’s chances.
Hrithik lost his life on a massive shot, but Tilak (Mumbai’s highest run-getter this season) went undefeated to the conclusion. With a pair of sixes, Tim David put the finishing touches on the project.
Who Won Yesterday’s Match? Match Summary
Tilak Varma led the way with an unbeaten 34 off 32 balls, while Rohit Sharma and Hrithik Shokeen each added 18 runs. Mukesh Choudhary took 3/23 for CSK, while Simarjeet Singh and Moeen Ali both took one wicket each.
At Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma won the toss and chose to bowl against Chennai Super Kings. Mumbai took a big decision in the high-octane battle by benching Kieron Pollard, who had been struggling.
In place of Pollard, Tristan Stubbs will make his IPL debut, while Murugan Ashwin will be replaced by Hrithik Shokeen. Chennai, on the other hand, elected to stick with the same starting lineup to avoid upsetting the winning combination.
Who Won Yesterday’s Match? Man Of The Match- Daniel Sams
In a furious opening spell, pacer Daniel Sams took three quick wickets to help Mumbai Indians dismiss Chennai Super Kings for 97 in their Indian Premier League match on Thursday.
With three wickets in his first three overs, Sams ripped away from the Chennai Super Kings top-order, and the MS Dhoni-led team never recovered.
“The first few games didn’t go to plan. Had a little bit of time to reflect on those performances. I just figured out that I was focusing on the batter too much and not on my strengths. That was something to work on at training. We have different plans for different batters.” Daniel Sams.
