IPL 2022, MI vs CSK: Watch - Mukesh Choudhary sends back both Mumbai Indians' openers for a duck in the first over
The five-time champions Mumbai Indians have competed with their arch-rivals Chennai Super Kings at the Dr DY Patil Sports Academy in Mumbai. Winning the toss, the skipper of Chennai Super Kings, Ravindra Jadeja decided to take the field.
After being asked to bat first, Mumbai Indians posted a total of 155 runs on the board. Tilak Varma was the top scorer for Mumbai as he remained unbeaten on 51 runs off 43 balls.
Chasing the target, Chennai Super Kings finished the match and registered their second win in this tournament. MS Dhoni who is recognised as the best finisher of the modern era has once again done the job for his side by smashing 17 runs in the final over bowled by Jaydev Unadkat.
On the other side, an unwanted record has been created by Mumbai Indians, as they become the first team to lose 7 consecutive matches in the history of IPL.
MS Dhoni has finished the match for Chennai Super Kings:
After losing the seventh match of this season, Rohit Sharma didn't look well in the post-match presentation but shared a few words about the game.
"In the end, it was a great fight from us, we were in the game after not batting well, the bowlers kept us in, but in the end, you know how towering MSD can be and he took them home.
It's hard to put a finger on anything, but we're not starting well in the match. If you lose quick wickets, you'll always be playing the catching game," Rohit Sharma was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.
"But I thought we did well to keep them under pressure, we did so until the last over, but Pretorius and Dhoni took them home.
We always back ourselves to do well, but as I said, we lost too many early wickets, we did make a good comeback with both bat and ball, but it wasn't enough in the end," he added.
Besides, Mukesh Choudhary gave a dream start to Chennai Super Kings, as he sent back both Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan in the very first over of the game.
