Lasith Malinga, Krunal Pandya displayed disciplined bowling performances as Mumbai Indians thrashed Chennai Super Kings by 46 runs at the Cheapuk.
By the virtue of the victory, Mumbai Indians have jumped to second spot in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 points table.
In the chase, making a comeback for Chennai Super Kings (CSK) Murali Vijay top scored with 38 runs but failed to get support from the other batsmen.
CSK lost their top order in quick succession with only Dwayne Bravo (20) and Mitchell Santner (22) playing crucial cameos but failing to convert their start to match-winning knocks.
Earlier skipper Rohit Sharma led from the front and helped Mumbai Indians (MI) post a competitive first innings total against Chennai Super Kings. Rohit and his opening partner Quinton de Kock started cautiously.
CSK bowlers came back strongly in the later part of the innings and didn’t give too many loose deliveries at a pitch which certainly has deteriorated as the game has progressed. MI’s 155 certainly looks competitive.
