Ruturaj Gaikwad led CSK's recovery after Boult and Milne struck twice inside the powerplay
CSK begin UAE leg with sixth win:
Tiwary brings up a fighting half-century after watching Milne fall to Bravo in the final over. His knock goes in vain and Bravo ends up with three wickets by also getting rid of Rahul Chahar in the last over. CSK win by a comfortable margin of 20 runs.
From 24/4 at the end of the powerplay to topping the points table, it has been an excellent comeback from CSK who now have six wins from eight matches. Gaikwad's 88, Jadeja's handy 26, Bravo's all-round contributions (23 off 8 and 3-24) and Chahar's fine bowling help CSK start the UAE leg on a winning note.
MI need 24 off the final over:Shardul bowls an expensive 19th over, conceding 15 runs. This includes a six for Milne, a four for Tiwary and also two wides.
Chahar completes fine spell despite cramps:Tiwary's four off Chahar in the 18th over is MI's first since the 12th over. Dhoni is angry at Bravo after Tiwary top-edges a scoop to fine-leg, with both ending up running into each other. Meanwhile, Chahar, who was cramping up, manages to complete the over, finishing with 2-19 from his four overs. MI 118/6 after 18.
CSK in ascendancy Pollard falls:A promising partnership between Tiwary and Pollard, worth 29 runs, comes to an end as Hazlewood strikes in the 14th over. Pollard missed a flick without any footwork and was trapped plumb in front. He review, but to no avail. In the next over, Krunal takes off for a non-existent single and is sent back by Tiwary, only to find himself short of the crease. MI slip to 94/6.
Bravo strikes in his first over:Kishan falls soon after getting a thick inside edge for a four off Bravo, getting out to a slower ball by handing a catch to Raina at cover. Pollard ends the 10th over with a cut for a boundary. MI are 62/4.
MI slow down:Tiwary and Kishan focus on rebuilding as the run-rate drops after the powerplay, with no boundaries coming in the subsequent three overs. MI are 54/3 after 9.
Quick wickets hurt MI:Anmolpreet's first four in the IPL comes off Hazlewood as he picked the ball off a length to send it to the backward square leg fence. His first six also comes in the same over as he whipped a delivery on his legs over fine leg before punching one between cover and point for his second four. The fourth over yields 14 runs while the fifth, bowled by Chahar, is worth only one while he also sends back Anmolpreet with a knuckle ball. Suryakumar mistimes a lofted drive to Du Plessis at mid-off to give Thakur a wicket. Tiwary ends the powerplay with a four as MI move to 41/3.
De Kock falls early: De Kock gets his first boundary by walking across to a Hazlewood delivery and guiding it over short fine leg (no fielder was present there). He plays a pull shot in the same over and Gaikwad fails to time his jump right to give the opener a reprieve. De Kock gladly accepts it as he clears his front leg and slaps the ball over mid-off for his second four. De Kock's third four is past Chahar's right but the bowler comes back well with a straight delivery that the batsman missed while attempting a flick to be out leg-before for 17 off 12. Umpire Illingworth ruled in favour of the batsman but Chahar insisted that he had the batsman plumb in front. Dhoni was quick to take the review and replays confirmed that it was three reds. MI are 20/1 after 3 overs.
CSK end up with 156/6
Gaikwad sweeps a full toss from Boult for a boundary. Bravo then plays another inside out drive for a six and follows it up with a another maximum by playing a pull. The last balls also goes over the fence as Gaikwad dispatches a full toss over midwicket. 24 off the penultimate over as Boult finishes with 2-35 from his four overs. Bumrah ends Bravo's innings in the final over as he tried to force away a back of a length delivery but ended up slicing it to Krunal at cover. But Gaikwad ensured a good finish to the innings, playing a lofted cover drive for a four before sweeping a low full toss for a six to help CSK finish with a competitive score.
CSK lost four wickets inside the powerplay and were effectively 24/5 with Rayudu having retired hurt. But Gaikwad responded to pressure with a fine innings. Jadeja supported him well in a hard-working partnership before Bravo sizzled towards the end to help CSK to a flourishing finish, with 69 runs coming off the last five overs. Gaikwad also brings up the highest individual score for CSK against MI.
Highest individual score for CSK v MI: 88* Ruturaj Gaikwad, Dubai, 2021; 86* Michael Hussey, Delhi, 2013; 83* Suresh Raina, Mumbai, BS, 2010.
Bharat Sundaresan @beastieboy07 Guess, Ruturaj Gaikwad would be in a real minority when it comes to batsmen around the world who can claim to have swept both Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult for boundaries in the same innings #CSK #IPL2021 #CSKvMI 03:54 PM • Sep 09, 2021
End of a fine partnership:Gaikwad picks the slower ball from Bumrah in the 17th over and dispatches it over the long-off fence for his second six. But Jadeja was early into his shot to an off-cutter, offering a simple catch to Pollard at long-off. End of an 81-run stand off 64 balls. Bravo, the next man in, comes down the track to Milne and goes inside-out over cover for a six. The New Zealand pacer finishes with figures of 2-21. CSK are 117/5 in 18.
Fifty for Gaikwad:An excellent innings under pressure from the 24-year-old, who brings up his sixth IPL fifty, off 41 balls, with a four off Pollard in the 16th over. He scores another boundary in the same over to help CSK to 98/4.
Gaikwad, Jadeja bring up half-century stand: The partnership is worth 63 off 54 deliveries as Gaikwad and Jadeja set up a platform for CSK to achieve at least a decent total. The are 87/5 after 15 overs. Can they end up with 140-plus?
CSK up the ante:Gaikwad comes down the track in the 12th over to Krunal with a straight bat to clear the long-off fence for the first six of the innings. In the same over, Jadeja late cuts for a four to third-man while Gaikwad reverse sweeps for the same result. 18 runs off the runs and CSK will like this.
Slow going:CSK have been without a boundary since Gaikwad's four off Milne in the final over of the powerplay. Meanwhile, Gaikwad has been put down by De Kock behind the stumps off Chahar. CSK are 44/4 after 10 overs.
Dhoni falls for 3:CSK are 24 for 4 at the end of the powerplay. Milne bags his second wicket as Dhoni times his pull but finds Boult at deep square leg.
ANOTHER BLOW:Suresh Raina, shortly after getting an outside edge off Boult which went to the boundary, tries to make room to go over the top. He ends up miscuing it to Chahar at point. He also breaks his bat in the process. CSK slip to 7 for 3 after 3 overs.
MI pacers in Powerplay: India leg – Two wickets in 33 overs; First 3 overs today – 3 wickets.
Massive blow for CSK as Ambati Rayudu retires hurt. He was hit by a sharp one from Milne on the elbow. Suresh Raina is IN!
MOEEN GOES FOR A DUCK!Milne strikes in his first over too as CSK are two down for 2 runs. Moeen slaps it to cover where Saurabh Tiwary takes a diving catch.
GOOONE!! Boult strikes in the opening over! Du Plessis goes for a DUCK!It was a tad short outside off, and du Plessis goes after it only to get an outside edge that is pouched at backward point.
The players are in the middle and we are minutes away from the start. Boult to Ruturaj! Here we go!!
TOSS TIME!CSK win toss and opt to bat. Moeen, Faf, Bravo and Hazlewood are their four overseas players. NO HARDIK for MI as well.
JUST IN: ROHIT SHARMA WILL MISS TODAY'S MATCH. POLLARD TO LEAD MI!Anmolpreet Singh will be making his debut for the Mumbai Indians.
Jasprit Bumrah is playing his 100th match for the Mumbai Indians today.
Pitch report: KP reckons it's a really hard pitch and it's a good wicket to bat on. “Chasing would be a good option”, he reckons. There's a bit of green and may have some assistance for the pacers upfront.
CSK team news: Faf du Plessis who had suffered a groin injury in the CPL and was ruled out of The Hundred seems to have recovered from it. He's likely to be available for selection tonight, but CSK will miss out on Sam Curran who is still in mandatory quarantine.
The Indian Premier League is back after 140 days!And we've got the two most successful teams locking horns in the opener of the second leg!
Hello and welcome to the opening game of second leg of the IPL 2021 between five-time champions Mumbai Indians and three-time winners Chennai Super Kings. The first leg was called off earlier in the year due to a number of COVID positive cases within the camps when the tournament was held in India in its usual window. However, the tournament is now going to be played in the UAE with the usual bubbles, BUT with spectators welcomed back into the stands, albeit in limited capacity.
CSK are currently second on the table, while MI are on fourth. However, with conditions different from those at home, the table could see some shuffle in the remainder of games. We'll see how that goes.
