A Matter of Survival for Mumbai Indians

A Matter of Survival for Mumbai Indians”

Today is the 27th match of the IPL 2018 and the match is between Chennai Super Kings vs Mumbai Indians. Catch it all LIVE only on Star Sports! AB de Villiers scored 68 runs.

When the two sides met earlier in this year's league at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai, CSK had pipped Mumbai Indians by one wicket and with a ball to spare.

In a must-win game, the holders Mumbai Indians aim to turn the wind towards their sail which is going to be an uphill task. Chennai on the top with 5 wins and MI on the bottom with just 1 win from 6 matches so far. His match-winning knock of 70 was studded with seven sixes, the most he has ever hit in a single IPL innings. The host Chennai may have lost their original home ground of Chennai but they have definitely not lost any chances to enter the playoffs. They have conceded five of their six fixtures and are on the verge of losing their ticket to the Play-Offs.

"We wanted this win desperately but we also wanted to stay calm", said Mumbai captain Rohit Sharma, man of the match for his 56 not out. And coach Mahela Jayawardene would expect all to score heavily. In the last game, he decimated the Royal Challengers Bangalore attack with a scintillating 82 and in the game before that, his 79 against SRH proved to be a match-turning effort.

Despite having two finest death bowlers in the world, Jasprit Bumrah and Mustafizur Rahman, Mumbai side has failed to defend their totals. When one performed exceedingly well, he lacked support from the other end. Barring this loss, Mumbai have lost every other match in a close contest, including two one-wicket defeats off the last and penultimate deliveries of the game. Mumbai team can replace New Zealand fast bowler Adam Milne in place of compatriot Mitchell McClenaghan. In the last game as well it was MS Dhoni and Ambati Rayudu who ensured CSK conquer Bangalore.

Just when CSK added another 15 runs, Chahal got the better off Ravindra Jadeja (3) in the ninth over to put the visitors on tremendous pressure.

Coach Stephen Fleming would expect another stellar performance from his batters on a pitch that usually aids the batsmen. The CSK bowling has been good under the leadership of Shardul Thakur, in which Imran Tahir and Deepak Chahar have also collaborated.

Chennai still had a mountain to climb with 104 runs needed from the last 10 overs. Ambati Rayudu (283), Shane Watson (191), Suresh Raina (129) and Dwayne Bravo (118) have all passed 100 runs in six innings or less.
