commentary

That concludes the proceedings for this match. Chennai have jumped to the top on the points table now and this win against Mumbai will give them some extra boost. The next game on Monday, 20th September 2021 is going to see the clash between Kolkata and Bangalore in Abu Dhabi. The action will begin at 6 pm local (2 pm GMT) but you can join us in advance for the build-up. Cheers!

Ruturaj Gaikwad is chosen for the Man of the Match award! Says it is one of his best innings till now as they were under a lot of pressure and he had to grind, take it deep and create partnerships. States they targeted 120-130 but then 140 looked possible and then 150. Also says the Chennai team gives him a lot of confidence and they back him and it helps a lot. Further says that the Lankan tour also helped him. Shares the ball was moving around at the start so he had to go after the spinners and it came off. Ends by saying the dropped catch at that stage of de Kock could have been crucial but he is happy it did not cost them.

MS Dhoni, the victorious captain of Chennai, says that at that point of time when they were 24/4, they wanted something respectable on the board. He praises Gaikwad and Bravo's knocks to take them to 156 and calls it a tremendous effort. On the surface, MS replies that it was two-paced and was slightly difficult for the new batsmen at the start. Agrees that it was tough to come back from there but some sensible batting and a very good finish took them to a good total. Talks about the batting depth of Chennai but calls it sensible that one guy batted through to the end. Dhoni also says that one of the conscious attempts is to finish the overs in time, so the choice of the bowlers also depend on it sometimes. Regarding Ambati Rayudu's fitness, Dhoni shares that he was smiling, so he has not broken his arm, some rest and he should be back.

Dwayne Bravo also comes up for a chat. Says that it is a good feeling, against Mumbai, it is always like a final and starting off with a win is good. Adds he was just trying to protect himself in the final stages of the CPL and when he came here, he had one session of bowling and he felt good. Mentions that he bats lower down the order and for him it is about winning the moments, if there are 12 balls left, then he looks to capitalize on those 12 balls and if there are 11 overs left, he looks to stay out there. Credits the way Ruturaj Gaikwad played and says he has been a star performer for them. Adds that he batted really good and has a big appetite for runs. Ends by saying he is pleased they got over the line.

Kieron Pollard, the stand-in captain of Mumbai, says he felt it got away in the middle but things like this happen in cricket. Mentions that Ruturaj Gaikwad played really well and he batted them out of the game. Admits they did not finish off well with the ball. Tells that the wicket was a good one, there was assistance at the start and they did make use of it but could not continue. Further says that Chennai's batsmen tried to continue the momentum throughout which they didn't do. States that they kept losing wickets and they needed someone to play deep. Talks about a few soft dismissals and feels that they should have avoided. Ends by saying there are 6 games to go and he hopes to turn it around.

Presentation time...

This game appeared done and dusted very early once Chennai lost their four wickets inside the Powerplay. But Ruturaj Gaikwad took the charge and formed useful stands to keep Chennai afloat in their batting innings. A strong finish handed them a challenging total, not to forget Dwayne Bravo's scintillating cameo, and their bowlers turned on the heat. Mumbai also lost three wickets in the first six overs and it was a big task for them from thereon. Saurabh Tiwary held one end strongly but the wickets kept falling at the other end. The biggest blow came in the form of Kieron Pollard's wicket and after that, it just became too tough for the defending champions to deal with the required rate. Tiwary stayed till the end but failed to take his team home. Deepak Chahar with the new ball and Dwayne Bravo in the middle and death overs were very impressive and finished with five wickets between them.

Excellent defense from Chennai and they avenged their last loss against Mumbai. This is only the second occasion in the history of this tournament that a team batting first was 4 down for 24 but still went on to win the game. Take a bow, Chennai. Take a bow, Ruturaj Gaikwad!

Dwayne Bravo delivers it on a length, slower in pace, as expected, Adam Milne tries to chance his arms, swings his bat across the line but it comes from the bottom half of his blade. Krishnappa Gowtham (sub for Ambati Rayudu) makes no mistake near the fence at deep mid-wicket.

Deepak Chahar to Saurabh Tiwary, PUT DOWN! MS Dhoni has put down the catch, that's a rare sight. This one is on a length and outside off, angling away, Saurabh Tiwary shuffles across the stumps for the paddle scoop but it takes the top edge. The ball loops in the air towards short fine leg, Dwayne Bravo is present there but Dhoni comes running in, probably calls for the catch but fails to hold on. Bravo is disappointed, that was his catch, he was right under that one. Could be a costly miss. The batsmen have crossed.
17.3
2
Deepak Chahar to Saurabh Tiwary, Well played in the end. Saurabh Tiwary makes a premeditated move across the stumps and Chahar follows him outside off with a very full delivery. Tiwary makes late adjustment and squeezes it through point for a couple.

Dwayne Bravo to Adam Milne, A slower one, full and close to off, Adam drives it down through mid off and takes a single.

Strategic Time-Out. Two quick wickets and Mumbai are staring down the barrel. 60 needed in the last 5 overs. This was the stage when Chennai stepped up with the bat. They amassed 69 from the last 30 balls. Can the champs do something similar? Dwayne Bravo returns to bowl after the break.

Moeen Ali to Krunal Pandya, OUT! RUN OUT! Even the dive does not save Pandya and that has to be the game for Chennai as now, only the bowlers are left and the required rate has almost touched 12. Not sure where Pandya was trying to go. There was never a run available. Flatter and on the pads, this is worked to mid-wicket and Pandya takes off. He is halfway down and Tiwary sends him back. Bravo takes a step to his left, picks the ball up and fires it to Dhoni who whips the bails off. It is referred but Dhoni is celebrating and Pandya has started to walk off. Replays roll in and they show Krunal is short.

Run out appeal and Krunal has started walking back! It is taken upstairs to refer.

14.3

Moeen Ali to Krunal Pandya, Just short! On middle, Pandya flicks, uppishly but short of mid-wicket.
14.2
2
Moeen Ali to Krunal Pandya, Not a good delivery! On the pads, this is swept behind square on the leg side for two.

Pollard is a goner! He has been given out LBW but he reviews. That looks out.

13.1

Josh Hazlewood to Kieron Pollard, OUT! THAT NOT ONLY LOOKS OUT BUT IT IS OUT! Three reds and is that the game for Chennai? The one who took the game away from Chennai last time around falls at a crucial moment and Josh Hazlewood gets the big fish. A much-needed wicket for the Aussie. He would have been slightly low in confidence after the beating he took earlier on but has come back and has struck gold. Gets this one to jag back in really sharply. It lands outside off, on a length. Comes back in. Pollard probably makes the mistake of not coming forward, he tries to flick but stayed rooted to the crease. Misses and the ball hits the pad. An appeal and the finger is raised. The review is taken but to no avail. A wicket goes down on 87, that's the devil's number and an Aussie has done the damage. Hmm... we love to be superstitious sometimes. 70 needed more by Mumbai.

Josh Hazlewood is back! He took a real pounding at the start. Can he come back strongly here?

Shardul Thakur to Kieron Pollard, Just 5 runs from it! Fuller and on off, Pollard pushes it towards covers and a run is taken. 70 needed in 7 overs now.

Dwayne Bravo to Saurabh Tiwary, FOUR! That is beautiful! Threads the gap wonderfully. This is fuller and outside off, there is a short cover, a cover and a mid off in place. Saurabh Tiwary hits it between them and it races away to the fence. Runs now flowing for Mumbai.

Ravindra Jadeja to Kieron Pollard, Better! Drags his length back and bowls it on middle, blocked. An expensive start for Jadeja.
10.5

Ravindra Jadeja to Kieron Pollard, SIX! This is what I was talking about. This is that in-between length. On middle, slightly fuller. Pollard whips it over the mid-wicket fence for a biggie. His first and Mumbai will hope, first of many. That was not from the middle of the blade but such is the power of this man, it has gone the distance.
10.4

Ravindra Jadeja to Saurabh Tiwary, Another single! On middle, Tiwary pushes it to long on for one.
10.3
1
Ravindra Jadeja to Kieron Pollard, Fuller and on middle, it is whipped through mid-wicket for one. You want to be either too full to Pollard or behind a good length. If it is in that in-between range, he will hit you long. That was way too full.

Dwayne Bravo to Kieron Pollard, FOUR! Shot! Dhoni came up to the stumps before this ball to prevent Pollard from using his feet but the length from Bravo is short and Kieron doesn't need to venture out. He rocks back and whacks it through cover-point for a boundary. Spoils a very good over of his fellow countryman. 95 needed at the halfway mark.

Dwayne Bravo to Ishan Kishan, OUT! Caught at short cover! Interesting field from MS Dhoni and Kishan has walked into the trap. Bravo once again offers no pace and delivers it outside off, it's on a length and angling away, Kishan leans into the drive but does so aerially. Suresh Raina is alert and takes the catch easily. Kishan knew what the plan was and is very disappointed with himself.
9.1
4
Dwayne Bravo to Ishan Kishan, FOUR! Almost drags it on. Bravo begins with his trademark slower one, on a length and around off, Kishan tries to drive through the line but it take the inside edge, beats the stumps and finds the fence at fine leg.

Strategic Time-Out! Chennai are on top at the moment! Yes, Mumbai need just 103 in 66 which is not a huge task nowadays but they are three down and the wicket does not seem to be the easiest. They will need one of these two to bat deep and someone to play a cameo like Bravo did. Chennai, on the other hand, will know they need to keep picking wickets. They will remember what Pollard did to them in phase 1 so they cannot relax. The next 5 overs will be very crucial.

He serves it on a length and around off, Suryakumar Yadav aims for an aerial shot, tries to loft it over the infield on the off side but mistimes it badly. The ball balloons in the air, Faf du Plessis quickly moves across to his left from mid off and completes the catch with a tumble. The idea from Yadav was right but he just failed to transfer his weight into the shot. This is a body blow to Mumbai.

Deepak Chahar to Anmolpreet Singh, OUT! TIMBER! Chahar could not have ended it better! Gets Anmolpreet Singh! Once again a batter starts to look good but then falls. The knuckle-ball does the trick.

4.1

Deepak Chahar to Suryakumar Yadav, Good length and on off, this lands and moves away a little. Yadav looks to play it with a straight bat but it goes off the outer half to covers.
3.6
4
Josh Hazlewood to Anmolpreet Singh, FOUR! 26 is what Josh has gone for in his two overs. Not what Dhoni would have wanted after a wicket fell in the last over. This is a top shot though, probably the best in the over. Length and on off, this is pushed through covers with great timing. Races away to the fence.
3.5
6
Josh Hazlewood to Anmolpreet Singh, SIX! Over the fence! What a shot! Anmolpreet Singh is growing in confidence here! Angled into the pads, this is whipped over the square leg fence for another biggie. Yet again the line is wrong from Hazlewood.

3.3
4
Josh Hazlewood to Anmolpreet Singh, FOUR! Really good shot! Josh Hazlewood is probably not bowling the right line with the field he has. This is angled into the pads, Anmolpreet Singh whips it over square leg for a welcome boundary. This will make him feel a lot better.

Josh Hazlewood to Anmolpreet Singh, Attacks the stumps again, this is pushed to mid on.

2.5
1
Deepak Chahar to Anmolpreet Singh, Off the toe end! That could only mean two things, the wicket is getting slower or Anmolpreet Singh was too early into the shot. Shorter and outside off, Singh looks to pull, he is through his shot early, it goes off the lower part towards the off side for one.
2.4

Deepak Chahar to Suryakumar Yadav, Yadav is off the mark! A full toss on the pads, Chahar looks to go for the yorker but ends up serving a full toss, it is flicked to fine leg for one.

Suryakumar Yadav walks out to bat now!

Review time! A huge appeal for LBW has been turned down. Chahar was celebrating while appealing. We will have to see if it is an inswinger or not. Seems to be missing off.

Deepak Chahar to Quinton de Kock, OUT! THREE REDS AND DE KOCK IS A GONER! That is why I am not an umpire because that was hitting flush on the off pole! The dropped catch does not cost a lot and Chahar has got rid of the big fish. De Kock was looking dangerous but falls now. Chahar goes full and on middle. It is a straight delivery. Holding its line a little. De Kock looks to flick by leaning across but fails to connect. An appeal is made, Chahar is celebrating but it's turned down. The onfield decision is reviewed by Dhoni. Replays show that de Kock has to take the long walk back. 139 needed off 106 balls.

Josh Hazlewood to Quinton de Kock, FOUR! That is why de Kock can't be given another chance. He is a top-class player and also in form! Fuller and outside off, he lofts it over extra cover for yet another boundary in this over.

Josh Hazlewood to Quinton de Kock, DROPPED! Ruturaj Gaikwad is the culprit! The hero with the bat puts down a big, big wicket. De Kock is not someone you want to drop! This is shorter and on middle, de Kock looks to pull, this goes off the inner half straight towards mid-wicket. Gaikwad looks to take it but the ball bursts out and goes behind for two. This is called returning the favour, Gaikwad was dropped on 19 by de Kock. Cricket is a great leveller.

Josh Hazlewood to Quinton de Kock, FOUR! Picks his spot brilliantly! Fine leg is very square and de Kock knows he just needed to get it fine and he does so brilliantly. This is well outside off. He moves towards the ball and scoops it towards the fine leg fence. Boundary. First of the chase.

Deepak Chahar to Quinton de Kock, Good length and on off, de Kock pushes it to covers. Starts right on the money. Not a lot of swing for him though.
