CSK had lost 5 wickets in the powerplay itself.
In this match for Mumbai Indians, along with his bowlers, his luck also supported him, due to which his team was able to take 5 wickets in the powerplay. When the CSK team came to bat, they did not have DRS in the first two overs, due to which they could not go to the third umpire with Devon Conway and Robin Uthappa taking their wickets. Fast bowler Daniel Sams, who came to bowl the first over of the innings, gave shock to Chennai by taking two wickets. He first walked David Conway without opening an account on the second ball of the over and then also walked Moeen Ali (0) on the fourth ball.
Mumbai became the first team to do so
In the powerplay, CSK’s team scored just 32 runs and lost their 5 wickets, while captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, standing at the other end, played an unbeaten 36 runs and contributed significantly to his team reaching 97 runs. On the other hand, Mumbai bowlers achieved a special achievement by pushing CSK’s team on the back foot in the powerplay. For the fourth time, the Mumbai bowlers have taken 5 wickets in the powerplay against a team and have topped the list.
Chennai Super Kings became the fourth team
At the same time, the team of Rajasthan Royals occupies the second position in this list, which has done this feat twice in IPL history. On the other hand, if we talk about the rest of the teams, they have also done this feat once. For the CSK team, apart from MS Dhoni, only Shivam Dubey (10), Ambati Rayudu (10) and Dwayne Bravo (12) could cross the double figures. Talking about CSK’s innings, their batsmen have done only 9 fours and 3 sixes. At the same time, CSK has become the fourth team to be all out within 100 this season.
