Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

End of Over No.20 Chennai Super Kings 133/8 This Over (11 runs)

12.18 am Right, that’s it from us here. On behalf of Karthik and Thilak, this is Saurabh Somani, signing off.

12.12 am Rohit Sharma: “Every game you play in IPL is important. And having lost two games at the start, every game is important. We don’t want the headache of winning every game at the back-end of the tournament. It becomes very tough. I thought 170 was a fighting total because there was something in the pitch. If we knock a few wickets with the new ball, we’ll be in the game. That’s probably why I can’t find a game-changing moment in this 40 overs. We didn’t start well, but we finished well. 170 on a Wankhede track is a sub-par score but we were very good with the ball. We saw with Jason (Behrendorff) he bowls very well with the new ball for Australia also. He got us crucial wickets in the first six overs. Rahul (Chahar) as well. Poor guy bowled only two overs, but there was a reason behind it – he was finding it tough to grip the ball. That is also why we play six bowlers, it gives me options.”

Hardik Pandya is the Man of the Match. “It feels pretty good to help the team to win and contribute. It’s been seven months that I’ve hardly played games, I’ve just batted and batted. I want to improve my game every day. It’s a fantastic feeling batting like that and making your team win. I was out for injury and then some other controversy happened. I want to dedicate this Man of the Match to my family and friends, who stood with me in the toughest times. Now my only focus is to play IPL and make sure India wins the World Cup.”

12.05 am This is also Mumbai Indians’ 100th win in the IPL. Owner Nita Ambani is overjoyed. “I have followed the journey from year 1 to year 12,” she says. “MS Dhoni is a captain I respect the most, so it’s very special when we are playing against him, whether we win or we lose.”

11.55 pm: Not only has this match finished before midnight, it’s also brought an end to CSK’s unbeaten run so far in the IPL. That ends overs blast off by Hardik in particularly, and Pollard, really made the difference between a par total and one that was out of reach for CSK. Excellent bowling by Mumbai, who stifled the Super Kings batsmen and never allowed them to get away.

MS Dhoni: “I think quite a few things went wrong for us. I think we started off well and 12th-13th over also we were on the mark, but after that there were some drops and mis-fields. The death bowling also didn’t come off. It was slightly tough on them. We do more one-on-one stuff than team meetings. On a wicket like this, what is important is carefully study which boundaries they could have cut off, and where is the error in execution. Momentum totally depends on where you are at. I don’t think the in-between innings break really plays a part. Even if you have finished well, you need to start (the second innings) well. I don’t think momentum really matters. What counts more is setting the tone while batting (or bowling). Bravo has a bit of a hamstring problem, so we’ll have to see the combination. We’re missing a few players already. There are areas to work on but what is important is for individuals to step up and take responsibility.”

Kieron Pollard: The Pandya boys have been batting well, so being the more experienced guy I have to take the initiative and try to do well whenever I come in. (Why are you not bowling?) That’s a question you’ll have to ask the skipper. I think as a team we strive on momentum. Beating the top team in the competition so far is good for us. We have batted pretty well in all games, and the bowlers stepped up to the mark today. (Hardik) is phenomenal. For us it’s just about encouraging him and giving him that opportunity. He practices like that.”

19.6 0 HH Pandya to Sharma back of a length outside off again, it’s a hard length and a tailender will miss it more often than not, as Mohit does. That ends that. Mumbai Indians win by 37 runs. no run
19.5 0 HH Pandya to Sharma swing and a miss. short ball, backing away and he misses it no run
19.4 1 HH Pandya to Thakur length ball, and he was targetting cow corner, but gets a top edge that loops up high in the air and falls safe – behind the bowler but well in front of long-on 1 run
19.3 4 HH Pandya to Thakur he’s ending with a flourish at least, ensuring the damage to the net run-rate is minimal. length ball on off and clobbered through extra cover for a well struck boundary FOUR
19.2 6 HH Pandya to Thakur gets it off the toe-end of the bat but manages to hit it just beyond the straight boundary. Full ball on off, free swing of the bat. Doesn’t get the timing at all, but just got enough on it for it to carry SIX
19.1 W HH Pandya to Chahar caught at fine leg Chahar was backing away again, this was another back of length ball that followed him. He made contact this time though and got a top edge. Ironically it’s Bumrah who’s the catcher. The last over, Chahar had tried the same shot against Bumrah twice but failed to connect OUT
DL Chahar c Bumrah b HH Pandya 7 (10m 7b 1×4 0x6) SR: 100.00

End of Over No.19 Chennai Super Kings 122/7 This Over (7 runs)

18.6 1 Bumrah to Chahar stays still that time and waits for the ball, pushing it to cover for a single 1 run
18.5 0 Bumrah to Chahar backing away again, swishes and misses again. Back of a length passes between bat and body no run
18.4 0 Bumrah to Chahar predictable response by the bowler, digs it in short, and Chahar is backing away and trying to swat it, misses completely no run
18.3 4 Bumrah to Chahar where did that come from steps away and smashes this low full toss over extra cover for four FOUR
18.2 1 Bumrah to Thakur back of a length, mis-times the short-arm jab that loops up but falls safely, well in front of long-on 1 run
18.1 1 Bumrah to Chahar almost yorker length on leg stump, moves across and flicks it to mid-on 1 run

Saravanan: “MI could have defended even 140 runs with strong bowling lineup.” – their bowling has been exceptionally good

End of Over No.18 Chennai Super Kings 115/7 This Over (7 runs)

17.6 0 Malinga to Thakur slower yorker, he adjusts and pushes it back to the bowler no run

Ananya: “Somehow MI has a psychological hold over CSK….. MI believes it can win any day against CSK barring miracles….. no other team has that belief against CSK”

17.5 W Malinga to Bravo another brilliant take by de Kock yorker to Bravo, who gets an inside edge that seems headed to the fine leg fence until Quinton goes airborne to his left and takes a stunning catch OUT
DJ Bravo c †de Kock b Malinga 8 (21m 9b 0x4 1×6) SR: 88.88
17.4 6 Malinga to Bravo smashed read hte slower one that time, it was on a half-volley outside off, right in his swinging arc and he frees his arms to send this into the third tier at long-on SIX
17.3 0 Malinga to Bravo another slower ball, Bravo gave himself room and wanted to lift this over cover, but doesn’t connect again no run
17.2 1 Malinga to Chahar starts with a yorker on the stumps, that Chahar gets behind and carefully turns to square leg 1 run
17.1 W Malinga to Jadhav and that might be that for CSK’s faint hopes. slower ball on the fourth stump, Jadhav wanted to send it to downtown Mumbai, stepping away and swinging mightily, but he can only feather a snick through to the keeper OUT
KM Jadhav c †de Kock b Malinga 58 (87m 54b 8×4 1×6) SR: 107.40

End of Over No.17 Chennai Super Kings 108/5 This Over (3 runs)

16.6 1 Bumrah to Jadhav moving across the stumps, Bumrah bowls a quick one that nips in a touch flicks his pad and goes past the keeper. But they’ve been keeping the third man and fine leg very fine for Jadhav, so third man is able to run across and field it 1 leg bye
16.5 1 Bumrah to Bravo back of a length, mistimed pull to midwicket 1 run
16.4 0 Bumrah to Bravo sharp bouncer. It was banged in and moving in, Bravo was moving away to give himself room, the ball followed him. went for the hook with eyes off the ball and it whistled past his helmet no run
16.3 1 Bumrah to Jadhav good length outside off, steered to third man 1 run
16.2 0 Bumrah to Jadhav that has bounced unexpected again. On a length outside off, Jadhav wanted to slash it away, but it bounced much above his bat no run

Gautam Shenoy: “Looks like 140 was a par score on this surface. It seemed that way all the way through until the Hardik cameo which put this total beyond reach. Need Dre Russ to win it from here”

16.1 0 Bumrah to Jadhav on the pads again, but Jadhav can’t connect with the flick. The ball takes the pad and rolls to square leg no run

Intense discussion between Pollard and Bravo. Wonder what it was about. Anyway, here’s Bumrah again.

Ajay Gour: “If we see the repeat of Bravo – Bumrah, it means Bumrah hasn’t learn anything in 1 year. But we know that is not true. So no, no repeat. It happened once, may not happen again.”

Rishav: “Poor pitch reading by Dhoni for the first time. He said it would be great for the batsman, but it seems like a struggle.”

Our forecasting tool says that now CSK have only a 3.3% chance of winning. In short, they need a miracle – perhaps a la 2018, when they did it in the opening match at this very venue. The protagonists of that chase are both at the crease. Can lightning strike twice?

End of Over No.16 Chennai Super Kings 105/5 This Over (11 runs)

15.6 0 Malinga to Bravo slower ball, length outside off, Bravo tries to slash it but misses completely no run
15.5 1 Malinga to Jadhav making room to drive though off, but gets a thick outside edge that goes fine. Third man is fine too though, so no boundary 1 run
15.4 1 Malinga to Bravo yorker on the stumps, wristed to midwicket 1 run
15.3 1 Malinga to Jadhav down legside again, and Jadhav tickles it very fine, but Bumrah is very fine too, and he fields 1 run
15.2 4 Malinga to Jadhav that’s a bit sloppy from Bumrah at fine leg. strays on the pads and he flicks it away. Bumrah is running around from fine leg, but puts in a clumsy half-dive and lets the ball go through FOUR
15.1 4 Malinga to Jadhav back of a length outside off and Jadhav does nicely to steer it very fine past the keeper to raise his fifty FOUR

Manan: “Anyone having same fear as me.. DJ Bravo destroying Bumrah like last year IPL 1st match. Would be devastating for MI” – but hopefully no pulled hamstring for Jadhav
