CSK won by 20 runs

Chennai secured a victory over the Mumbai Indians by a margin of 20 runs. It’s worth noting that Dhoni’s impressive performance in the last four balls, comprising three sixes followed by a two, summed up to exactly 20 runs, effectively making the decisive contribution to the outcome.

Rohit 100

Rohit hit his century in 61 balls on the day. Rohit Sharma hundred in vain as Pathirana guides CSK to 20-run win over MI. Rohit walked out to bat with Ishan Kishan as MI were chasing a formidable target of 207 runs set by CSK, thanks to a powerful performance by MS Dhoni and Shivam Dube, who propelled their team to 206 for 4 in their allotted 20 overs.

Who Said What

Gaikwad, CSK captainOur young wicketkeeper scoring three sixes down the order helped a lot and I think that was the difference. To start off, on this kind of ground, you need 10-15 extra runs. We were looking at 215-220, but Bumrah bowled well. Bowling-wise, we were spot on with our execution. Even in powerplay, I would have taken six overs for 60. These kinds of venues demand both skills: batting and bowling. Our Malinga bowled exceptionally well and nailed those yorkers. Not to forget – even Tushar and Shardul bowled well. We encourage everyone to be in a good headspace. Nothing, Jinks was carrying a bit of a niggle. Thought it was better for him to open and get away quick runs. I’m fine batting anywhere.

Pathirana, Player of the Match: When we bowled in powerplay, I was nervous. I then came to do my regular things. I don’t think about results and I just think about execution. First of all, I was having a niggle before two weeks and all support staff and players helped me. That’s the main thing to have my form.

Hardik, MI captain: Definitely, gettable. But they bowled pretty well and Pathirana was the difference. They were smart with their plans and used the longer boundary well. They got the hang of it and they have a man behind the stumps telling them what’s working. The ball was slightly gripping and they got ahead of the game. Until Pathirana came, we were on course for the total. It was just about what was best at that point (on whether they could have used a spinner to Dube?). To seamers it was more difficult to hit on this wicket. We are now on the road for the next four games. If we are smart, we can get the goal we want.

Thakur: Much-needed  win. Playing against opponents like MI, especially at the Wankhede is not easy. Rohit, Ruturaj and Shivam the way they batted…but at the end of the day, we held our nerve better. We spoke about keeping it simple, meaning we need to have fielders where we bowl. This is a repeated pitch and MI played on it on April 11. We felt we needed to bowl slower ones into the pitch. Pathirana was magical and the way he bowled the yorkers was amazing to see. Not much dew today. When Rohit was going strong, we felt the game was sliding away a little but I wanted to challenge Rohit to hit me on the bigger side. If he can’t, it might be the turning point.
