Mumbai handed CSK their first loss with Pandya’s all-round Show!
Yesterday in the 15th match of the Vivo IPL 2019, two Powerhouses Mumbai Indians and Chennai Indians clashed each other at Wankhede. Chennai won the toss and elected to chase where Mumbai put 170 part score on the board. Chennai lost their openers for six runs by debutant Behrendroff and Malinga.
Raina looked to counter-attack but fell off for the excellent catch by Pollard. Dhoni and Jadhav repaired their innings with a 50 partnership but the required run-rate climbed above 13 and Dhoni departs scoring after his 12 off 21 balls. With that wicket, Chennai lost hopes and gave Mumbai a 37 runs victory. Hardik Pandya and Malinga picked up 3 wickets each.
In the first innings, Mumbai made an unbelievable comeback as they lost Decock and Skipper Rohit inside the power play. Even Yuvraj failed but Surya Kumar Yadav and Krunal Pandya steadied the innings scoring 59 and 42 respectively.
But the scoring rate was below 6 till Pollard and Pandya entered the scene. These two garnered 45 runs in the last two overs. 29 came from Bravo’s last over as Hardik Pandya smoked 25 runs from just 8 deliveries. Pandya was announced as the Man of the Match for his all-round show.
