Saurabh Tiwary(50 | 40)
Dwayne Bravo4|0|25|3
119.619.6: Dwayne Bravo to Jasprit Bumrah, CHENNAI WIN! Another slower one, full and on middle, Jasprit Bumrah flicks it across the line and Suresh Raina makes a half-stop at mid-wicket. They cross for a run. That's it, Chennai win by 20 runs!
019.519.5: Dwayne Bravo to Jasprit Bumrah, Bravo nails the yorker, on middle, Bumrah digs it out on the surface.
019.419.4: Dwayne Bravo to Rahul Chahar, OUT! Another one bites the dust! The Bravo-Raina combo has one more wicket. Slower one, full and around off, dipping in, Chahar tries to heave but there is no elevation on his shot. A simple catch for Suresh Raina at short mid-wicket. Jasprit Bumrah has walked out.
119.319.3: Dwayne Bravo to Saurabh Tiwary, Fullish and outside off, Saurabh Tiwary dances down the track but only manages to push it as far as mid off. Only a run. Fifty for Saurabh Tiwary but this game has slipped away.
019.219.2: Dwayne Bravo to Adam Milne, OUT! Caught in the deep! Dwayne Bravo delivers it on a length, slower in pace, as expected, Adam Milne tries to chance his arms, swings his bat across the line but it comes from the bottom half of his blade. Krishnappa Gowtham (sub for Ambati Rayudu) makes no mistake near the fence at deep mid-wicket.
119.119.1: Dwayne Bravo to Saurabh Tiwary, Not the best result, Saurabh Tiwary is off strike. Fuller and outside off, it's driven square of the wicket on the off side for a single.
19 Overs | Runs : 133/6 | Run rate : 7
018.818.6: Shardul Thakur to Adam Milne, DOT! Swing and a miss from the Kiwi. Fuller and outside off, the pace is right up there, 133 clicks, Milne attacks it with all his might but fails to connect.
018.718.6: Shardul Thakur to Adam Milne, Wide! Thakur has lost his range. Another wayward delivery, short and way wide outside off, Adam tries to cut but misses.
018.618.6: Shardul Thakur to Adam Milne, Wide! Shardul Thakur loses his grip and delivers it way wide outside off, Milne leaves. This one is called a wide. 25 needed off 7.
018.518.5: Shardul Thakur to Adam Milne, Slower one, short and around leg, Milne shapes up to pull but fails to connect. Not called a wide. Thakur is lucky.
618.418.4: Shardul Thakur to Adam Milne, SIX! No need to be cheeky if you have the power! Thakur delivers it on a length and wide outside off, slower in pace, Milne latches onto it and launches it over wide long off.
218.318.3: Shardul Thakur to Adam Milne, Fullish and outside off, Adam Milne tries to be adventurous. Attempts to be cute with his paddle scoop but it takes the inner half and rolls in the gap at mid-wicket. Two taken.
118.218.2: Shardul Thakur to Saurabh Tiwary, Fuller and wider outside off, hammered down to long off for a single.
418.118.1: Shardul Thakur to Saurabh Tiwary, FOUR! Saurabh Tiwary is certainly keeping Mumbai in the game. Full in length and wide outside off, Tiwary drills his drive through covers and finds the fence.
18 Overs | Runs : 118/6 | Run rate : 6.56
117.617.6: Deepak Chahar to Saurabh Tiwary, Fuller and outside off, lofted over covers for one. 39 needed off 12 balls. All on Saurabh Tiwary's shoulders now. 
117.517.5: Deepak Chahar to Adam Milne, On a length around middle, Milne goes hard at it and mishits it through mid on for a single.
117.417.4: Deepak Chahar to Saurabh Tiwary, PUT DOWN! MS Dhoni has put down the catch, that's a rare sight. This one is on a length and outside off, angling away, Saurabh Tiwary shuffles across the stumps for the paddle scoop but it takes the top edge. The ball loops in the air towards short fine leg, Dwayne Bravo is present there but Dhoni comes running in, probably calls for the catch but fails to hold on. Bravo is disappointed, that was his catch, he was right under that one. Could be a costly miss. The batsmen have crossed.
217.317.3: Deepak Chahar to Saurabh Tiwary, Well played in the end. Saurabh Tiwary makes a premeditated move across the stumps and Chahar follows him outside off with a very full delivery. Tiwary makes late adjustment and squeezes it through point for a couple.
417.217.2: Deepak Chahar to Saurabh Tiwary, FOUR! A much-needed boundary for Mumbai. Fractionally short and close to off, Saurabh Tiwary camps back and clubs it down the ground. It races away to the long off fence in a flash. 44 needed off 16 balls.
117.117.1: Deepak Chahar to Adam Milne, On a length around middle and leg, angling down, Milne tries to heave but misses. He is hit high on the pads and the ball rests near the surface. They cross for a leg bye. Chahar limps back to his mark.
17 Overs | Runs : 108/6 | Run rate : 6.35
116.616.6: Josh Hazlewood to Adam Milne, On a length and around off, Milne stays back and hits it firmly past the bowler to long off. A single is taken. Top over by Josh Hazlewood to finish his spell. 
016.516.5: Josh Hazlewood to Adam Milne, Fuller and angling in on off, Adam pushes it back to the bowler.

116.316.3: Josh Hazlewood to Adam Milne, The Aussie goes short and the Kiwi brings out the pull shot. No timing though. It goes over square leg and they cross.

116.116.1: Josh Hazlewood to Saurabh Tiwary, On a length and outside off, it's forced through point for a single.
16 Overs | Runs : 104/6 | Run rate : 6.5
015.715.6: Dwayne Bravo to Adam Milne, Well stopped by DJ! A near-yorker on off, Milne forces it back towards the bowler who dives across to his right to make a partial stop.
115.615.5: Dwayne Bravo to Saurabh Tiwary, Very full and wide outside off, Saurabh leans and drives it through covers for a single.
015.515.5: Dwayne Bravo to Saurabh Tiwary, Wide! Another attempted slower one but this time the radar of the bowler is wrong. Way too wide outside off, Tiwary allows it through.
115.415.4: Dwayne Bravo to Adam Milne, Milne gives the charge and yorks himself. He somehow digs it out at the last moment and pushes it past the diving bowler to long on. Another single.
115.315.3: Dwayne Bravo to Saurabh Tiwary, Bravo goes fuller and outside off, Saurabh Tiwary squeezes his drive to sweeper cover for a run.
215.215.2: Dwayne Bravo to Saurabh Tiwary, Slightly short, around off and angling away, Saurabh Tiwary stays back and smashes it down towards long off. A couple taken as Moeen Ali mops it up in the deep.
115.115.1: Dwayne Bravo to Adam Milne, A slower one, full and close to off, Adam drives it down through mid off and takes a single.
15 Overs | Runs : 97/6 | Run rate : 6.47
214.614.6: Moeen Ali to Saurabh Tiwary, Two to end! On middle, Tiwary works it through mid-wicket. Two taken.
114.514.5: Moeen Ali to Adam Milne, Milne is off the mark! On off, this is pushed down to long off for one.
014.414.4: Moeen Ali to Krunal Pandya, OUT! RUN OUT! Even the dive does not save Pandya and that has to be the game for Chennai as now, only the bowlers are left and the required rate has almost touched 12. Not sure where Pandya was trying to go. There was never a run available. Flatter and on the pads, this is worked to mid-wicket and Pandya takes off. He is halfway down and Tiwary sends him back. Bravo takes a step to his left, picks the ball up and fires it to Dhoni who whips the bails off. It is referred but Dhoni is celebrating and Pandya has started to walk off. Replays roll in and they show Krunal is short.
014.314.3: Moeen Ali to Krunal Pandya, Just short! On middle, Pandya flicks, uppishly but short of mid-wicket.
214.214.2: Moeen Ali to Krunal Pandya, Not a good delivery! On the pads, this is swept behind square on the leg side for two.
114.114.1: Moeen Ali to Saurabh Tiwary, Tiwary skips down the track but that is spotted. Ali shortens the length. It is pushed down to long on for one.
14 Overs | Runs : 91/5 | Run rate : 6.5
113.613.6: Josh Hazlewood to Saurabh Tiwary, Brilliant comeback over from Josh! Just 4 runs and a wicket from it. Shorter and on middle, this is pulled towards mid on. The game is slipping away. The required rate now is 11.
113.513.5: Josh Hazlewood to Krunal Pandya, Just the one! Singles will only push the game away further from Mumbai! Fuller and on off, it is hit down to long off for one.
113.413.4: Josh Hazlewood to Saurabh Tiwary, On the pads, this is worked through square leg for one.
013.313.3: Josh Hazlewood to Saurabh Tiwary, Another one on a length, defended.
113.213.2: Josh Hazlewood to Krunal Pandya, Pandya is off the mark! On off, this is pushed to mid off for one.
013.113.1: Josh Hazlewood to Kieron Pollard, OUT! THAT NOT ONLY LOOKS OUT BUT IT IS OUT! Three reds and is that the game for Chennai? The one who took the game away from Chennai last time around falls at a crucial moment and Josh Hazlewood gets the big fish. A much-needed wicket for the Aussie. He would have been slightly low in confidence after the beating he took earlier on but has come back and has struck gold. Gets this one to jag back in really sharply. It lands outside off, on a length. Comes back in. Pollard probably makes the mistake of not coming forward, he tries to flick but stayed rooted to the crease. Misses and the ball hits the pad. An appeal and the finger is raised. The review is taken but to no avail. A wicket goes down on 87, that's the devil's number and an Aussie has done the damage. Hmm... we love to be superstitious sometimes. 70 needed more by Mumbai.
13 Overs | Runs : 87/5 | Run rate : 6.69
112.612.6: Shardul Thakur to Kieron Pollard, Just 5 runs from it! Fuller and on off, Pollard pushes it towards covers and a run is taken. 70 needed in 7 overs now.
112.512.5: Shardul Thakur to Saurabh Tiwary, Close! On middle, Tiwary looks to drive, he gets an inside edge on the leg side for one.
012.412.4: Shardul Thakur to Saurabh Tiwary, Dot! Fuller and on off, this is pushed to covers.
112.312.3: Shardul Thakur to Kieron Pollard, Quick run! On off, Pollard pushes it to covers, calls early and takes one.
112.212.2: Shardul Thakur to Saurabh Tiwary, Outside off, this is slapped through covers for one.
112.112.1: Shardul Thakur to Kieron Pollard, Pollard had to hit that! On middle, he works it through square leg for one. Had he missed that, he would have been a candidate for LBW.
12 Overs | Runs : 82/4 | Run rate : 6.83
111.711.6: Dwayne Bravo to Kieron Pollard, A single to end! On middle, this is pushed down to long off for one. 75 needed in 48.
011.611.6: Dwayne Bravo to Kieron Pollard, WIDE! That one slips out! Pollard takes a few steps down the track, Bravo looks to bowl a slower one but it is down the leg side. Wided.
011.511.5: Dwayne Bravo to Kieron Pollard, Almost! Outside off and on a length. Pollard looks to cut but this one bounces extra. He is beaten.
011.411.4: Dwayne Bravo to Kieron Pollard, Solid! Good length and on off, Pollard plays it back to the bowler.
111.311.3: Dwayne Bravo to Saurabh Tiwary, Another single! A low full toss this time, it is hit down to long off for one.
411.211.2: Dwayne Bravo to Saurabh Tiwary, FOUR! That is beautiful! Threads the gap wonderfully. This is fuller and outside off, there is a short cover, a cover and a mid off in place. Saurabh Tiwary hits it between them and it races away to the fence. Runs now flowing for Mumbai.
011.111.1: Dwayne Bravo to Saurabh Tiwary, Fuller and outside off, this is driven nicely but to covers.
11 Overs | Runs : 75/4 | Run rate : 6.82
010.610.6: Ravindra Jadeja to Kieron Pollard, Better! Drags his length back and bowls it on middle, blocked. An expensive start for Jadeja.
610.510.5: Ravindra Jadeja to Kieron Pollard, SIX! This is what I was talking about. This is that in-between length. On middle, slightly fuller. Pollard whips it over the mid-wicket fence for a biggie. His first and Mumbai will hope, first of many. That was not from the middle of the blade but such is the power of this man, it has gone the distance.
110.410.4: Ravindra Jadeja to Saurabh Tiwary, Another single! On middle, Tiwary pushes it to long on for one.
110.310.3: Ravindra Jadeja to Kieron Pollard, Fuller and on middle, it is whipped through mid-wicket for one. You want to be either too full to Pollard or behind a good length. If it is in that in-between range, he will hit you long. That was way too full.
110.210.2: Ravindra Jadeja to Saurabh Tiwary, Sensible! Pushes it down to long on now and takes one.
410.110.1: Ravindra Jadeja to Saurabh Tiwary, FOUR! Smashed! Consecutive boundaries for Mumbai! Powerful hit. Tiwary will enjoy this match-up. Fuller and on middle, this is smashed down to the long on fence for a boundary.
10 Overs | Runs : 62/4 | Run rate : 6.2
49.69.6: Dwayne Bravo to Kieron Pollard, FOUR! Shot! Dhoni came up to the stumps before this ball to prevent Pollard from using his feet but the length from Bravo is short and Kieron doesn't need to venture out. He rocks back and whacks it through cover-point for a boundary. Spoils a very good over of his fellow countryman. 95 needed at the halfway mark.
09.59.5: Dwayne Bravo to Kieron Pollard, Fuller and around off, Pollard uses his feet and defends it quietly to mid-wicket.
09.49.4: Dwayne Bravo to Kieron Pollard, Beauty! Late movement, around off, Pollard pushes inside the line in defense and misses.
09.39.3: Dwayne Bravo to Kieron Pollard, On a length and outside off, Kieron Pollard allows it through to the keeper.
09.29.2: Dwayne Bravo to Ishan Kishan, OUT! Caught at short cover! Interesting field from MS Dhoni and Kishan has walked into the trap. Bravo once again offers no pace and delivers it outside off, it's on a length and angling away, Kishan leans into the drive but does so aerially. Suresh Raina is alert and takes the catch easily. Kishan knew what the plan was and is very disappointed with himself.
49.19.1: Dwayne Bravo to Ishan Kishan, FOUR! Almost drags it on. Bravo begins with his trademark slower one, on a length and around off, Kishan tries to drive through the line but it take the inside edge, beats the stumps and finds the fence at fine leg.
9 Overs | Runs : 54/3 | Run rate : 6
18.68.6: Moeen Ali to Ishan Kishan, Skidding back in from middle, Kishan gets back and whips it in front of square leg for one. 6 from the over!

18.18.1: Moeen Ali to Saurabh Tiwary, Flatter and fuller around middle, Saurabh steps back to play an inside-out shot but ends up dragging it off the inner half to wide long on for a single.
8 Overs | Runs : 48/3 | Run rate : 6
07.67.6: Shardul Thakur to Ishan Kishan, Beaten! Thakur bends his back to bowl a short delivery, around off and leaving the batsman, Ishan hangs back to cut it late but it bounces over his blade. Tidy stuff from Thakur.
17.57.5: Shardul Thakur to Saurabh Tiwary, Full and on middle, Tiwary uses his wrists and works it behind square leg for a single.
17.47.4: Shardul Thakur to Ishan Kishan, Pitches it up and outside off, Kishan plays a lovely drive and sends it to sweeper cover for a single.
17.37.3: Shardul Thakur to Saurabh Tiwary, Digs in a short ball around leg, Saurabh Tiwary plays a blazing pull shot down to fine leg for a single.
07.27.2: Shardul Thakur to Saurabh Tiwary, Back of a length, around middle and off, Saurabh Tiwary stands back to turn it on the leg side but closes the face of his bat late. It goes off the leading portion of the bat to covers.
07.17.1: Shardul Thakur to Saurabh Tiwary, Play and a miss! Thakur angles across a length ball outside off, Tiwary tries to drive but misses.
7 Overs | Runs : 45/3 | Run rate : 6.43

16.46.4: Moeen Ali to Saurabh Tiwary, The line from Moeen is on middle and leg, it's nudged behind square leg for a single.
06.36.3: Moeen Ali to Saurabh Tiwary, Tossed up around off, defended off the front foot.
06.26.2: Moeen Ali to Saurabh Tiwary, Loopy and full on off, Tiwary drives through the line but fails to beat the diving cover fielder.

6 Overs | Runs : 41/3 | Run rate : 6.83
45.65.6: Shardul Thakur to Saurabh Tiwary, FOUR! Saurabh Tiwary ends the Powerplay with a glorious drive. Fuller in length and outside off, Saurabh Tiwary unveils a well-timed stroke and pierces the gap between mid off and extra cover. Mumbai are 41/3, needing 116 more.
05.55.5: Shardul Thakur to Saurabh Tiwary, Fullish and close to off, Saurabh Tiwary presses forward and defends it to the off side.
05.45.4: Shardul Thakur to Suryakumar Yadav, OUT! SKY is brought down by 'Lord' Shardul Thakur. He serves it on a length and around off, Suryakumar Yadav aims for an aerial shot, tries to loft it over the infield on the off side but mistimes it badly. The ball balloons in the air, Faf du Plessis quickly moves across to his left from mid off and completes the catch with a tumble. The idea from Yadav was right but he just failed to transfer his weight into the shot. This is a body blow to Mumbai.
05.35.3: Shardul Thakur to Suryakumar Yadav, A touch short and on off, Suryakumar Yadav stays back and defends it to the off side. Calm and composed.
15.25.2: Shardul Thakur to Ishan Kishan, Too full in length and outside off, Kishan drives it to the right of mid off and picks up a single to open his account.
15.15.1: Shardul Thakur to Suryakumar Yadav, On a length, around off, Suryakumar Yadav stays back, uses his wrists and works it wide of mid on for a single.
5 Overs | Runs : 35/2 | Run rate : 7
04.64.6: Deepak Chahar to Anmolpreet Singh, OUT! TIMBER! Chahar could not have ended it better! Gets Anmolpreet Singh! Once again a batter starts to look good but then falls. The knuckle-ball does the trick. It is on off, Singh is through his shot early as he tries to flick. Misses it completely and the off pole is uprooted. 122 needed off 90 balls.
04.54.5: Deepak Chahar to Anmolpreet Singh, Singh is not comfortable against the short ones! Short and on middle, Singh looks to pull but misses to get hit on the body. Just the one run from the over so far, can he end it well?
04.44.4: Deepak Chahar to Anmolpreet Singh, Another really good drive! Length and around off, Singh strokes it on the up but straight to mid off.
04.34.3: Deepak Chahar to Anmolpreet Singh, On a length and outside off, Anmolpreet Singh pushes inside the line and misses.
14.24.2: Deepak Chahar to Suryakumar Yadav, Outstanding fielding! Faf has saved three runs for his team! Fuller and on off, this is timed nicely towards mid off. Faf du Plessis there dives to his right and makes a partial stop. He takes the pace off that one and deflects it towards mid on. Just one taken.
04.14.1: Deepak Chahar to Suryakumar Yadav, Good length and on off, this lands and moves away a little. Yadav looks to play it with a straight bat but it goes off the outer half to covers.
4 Overs | Runs : 34/1 | Run rate : 8.5
43.63.6: Josh Hazlewood to Anmolpreet Singh, FOUR! 26 is what Josh has gone for in his two overs. Not what Dhoni would have wanted after a wicket fell in the last over. This is a top shot though, probably the best in the over. Length and on off, this is pushed through covers with great timing. Races away to the fence.
63.53.5: Josh Hazlewood to Anmolpreet Singh, SIX! Over the fence! What a shot! Anmolpreet Singh is growing in confidence here! Angled into the pads, this is whipped over the square leg fence for another biggie. Yet again the line is wrong from Hazlewood.
03.43.4: Josh Hazlewood to Anmolpreet Singh, And this will make Josh feel a lot better! Extra bounce for him. Shorter and outside off, Singh slashes at it but misses.
43.33.3: Josh Hazlewood to Anmolpreet Singh, FOUR! Really good shot! Josh Hazlewood is probably not bowling the right line with the field he has. This is angled into the pads, Anmolpreet Singh whips it over square leg for a welcome boundary. This will make him feel a lot better.
03.23.2: Josh Hazlewood to Anmolpreet Singh, Attacks the stumps again, this is pushed to mid on.
03.13.1: Josh Hazlewood to Anmolpreet Singh, Good length and on off, Singh plays it down to wide first slip.
3 Overs | Runs : 20/1 | Run rate : 6.67
02.62.6: Deepak Chahar to Suryakumar Yadav, A dot to end an over which started off with a boundary but just the 6 runs and a wicket from it! On off, Yadav guides it to point.
12.52.5: Deepak Chahar to Anmolpreet Singh, Off the toe end! That could only mean two things, the wicket is getting slower or Anmolpreet Singh was too early into the shot. Shorter and outside off, Singh looks to pull, he is through his shot early, it goes off the lower part towards the off side for one.
02.42.4: Deepak Chahar to Anmolpreet Singh, Nicely played! Fuller and on middle, this is worked nicely but to mid on.
12.32.3: Deepak Chahar to Suryakumar Yadav, Yadav is off the mark! A full toss on the pads, Chahar looks to go for the yorker but ends up serving a full toss, it is flicked to fine leg for one.
02.22.2: Deepak Chahar to Quinton de Kock, OUT! THREE REDS AND DE KOCK IS A GONER! That is why I am not an umpire because that was hitting flush on the off pole! The dropped catch does not cost a lot and Chahar has got rid of the big fish. De Kock was looking dangerous but falls now. Chahar goes full and on middle. It is a straight delivery. Holding its line a little. De Kock looks to flick by leaning across but fails to connect. An appeal is made, Chahar is celebrating but it's turned down. The onfield decision is reviewed by Dhoni. Replays show that de Kock has to take the long walk back. 139 needed off 106 balls.
42.12.1: Deepak Chahar to Quinton de Kock, FOUR! De Kock is now dealing in boundaries! Fuller and on middle, de Kock times it back past the bowler and down to the long on fence for a boundary.
2 Overs | Runs : 14/0 | Run rate : 7
11.61.6: Josh Hazlewood to Quinton de Kock, A single to end the over but the damage was done earlier on! On the pads, it is worked fine towards fine leg for one. 12 from the over!
41.51.5: Josh Hazlewood to Quinton de Kock, FOUR! That is why de Kock can't be given another chance. He is a top-class player and also in form! Fuller and outside off, he lofts it over extra cover for yet another boundary in this over.
21.41.4: Josh Hazlewood to Quinton de Kock, DROPPED! Ruturaj Gaikwad is the culprit! The hero with the bat puts down a big, big wicket. De Kock is not someone you want to drop! This is shorter and on middle, de Kock looks to pull, this goes off the inner half straight towards mid-wicket. Gaikwad looks to take it but the ball bursts out and goes behind for two. This is called returning the favour, Gaikwad was dropped on 19 by de Kock. Cricket is a great leveller.
41.31.3: Josh Hazlewood to Quinton de Kock, FOUR! Picks his spot brilliantly! Fine leg is very square and de Kock knows he just needed to get it fine and he does so brilliantly. This is well outside off. He moves towards the ball and scoops it towards the fine leg fence. Boundary. First of the chase.
11.21.2: Josh Hazlewood to Anmolpreet Singh, A single now! Outside off, Singh guides it down to third man and gets to the other end. Anmolpreet Singh is off the mark!
01.11.1: Josh Hazlewood to Anmolpreet Singh, Really good start by Josh! Length and on middle, this is defended back to the bowler.
1 Overs | Runs : 2/0 | Run rate : 2
00.60.6: Deepak Chahar to Quinton de Kock, Tidy start from Chahar! On middle, on a length. De Kock works it nicely but to mid-wicket. Just two runs from the first.
00.50.5: Deepak Chahar to Quinton de Kock, Outside off, de Kock slashes at it. This one stays a touch low and de Kock misses. Good from Chahar. He saw de Kock walk across and went wider.
20.40.4: Deepak Chahar to Quinton de Kock, Mumbai are underway! Length, this is an away-swinger but the line is a little too straight, de Kock works it through mid-wicket and takes two.
00.30.3: Deepak Chahar to Quinton de Kock, Another good drive but for no runs! Fuller and on off, de Kock pushes it to mid off.
00.20.2: Deepak Chahar to Quinton de Kock, On middle, de Kock pushes it firmly but to covers.
00.10.1: Deepak Chahar to Quinton de Kock, Good length and on off, de Kock pushes it to covers. Starts right on the money. Not a lot of swing for him though.
Chennai Super Kings First innings
619.719.6: Jasprit Bumrah to Ruturaj Gaikwad, SIX! Ruturaj Gaikwad finishes the innings off in style. Once again Bumrah errs in landing his yorker, it's around off, Gaikwad kneels down and smokes it over deep square leg for a maximum. Chennai finish on 156/6!
119.619.5: Jasprit Bumrah to Shardul Thakur, Spears in a very full ball on middle, Thakur whips it across the line to deep square leg for a single.

New Zealand are roaring in the Indian T20 League. Adam Milne digs in a well-directed short ball, around off and invites MS Dhoni to go for the pull shot.

Short and on middle, Ruturaj Gaikwad pulls, it is more off the upper part of the bat, no fielder in the deep square leg region. Fine leg does run across to his left but he has no chance.
03.23.2: Adam Milne to Ruturaj Gaikwad, A yorker now on middle, Gaikwad jams it out to mid on.
03.13.1: Adam Milne to Ruturaj Gaikwad, Length and on off, blocked.

02.62.6: Trent Boult to Suresh Raina, OUT! CAUGHT! Raina's struggle comes to an end! This is one inning he would not want to watch again! A well-planned wicket for Mumbai. Boult worked up Raina with a few sharp short ones, exposing his weakness and gets him with a length ball. It is on middle, Raina once again makes room and swings his bat across the line. This one shapes away a bit and comes off the bottom of the blade. It flies to point where Rahul Chahar makes no mistake. A big chunk of wood also came off as Raina made contact. A broken bat and a sad knock.
02.52.5: Trent Boult to Suresh Raina, Goes short again and on the body, Raina nudges it to leg gully.
42.42.4: Trent Boult to Suresh Raina, EDGY FOUR! Raina seems to be rattled by those two short balls. Yes, he gets off the mark with a boundary but it is an ugly one! Length and shaping away. Raina clears his front leg and swings, this goes off the outside edge down to the third man fence for another boundary.
02.32.3: Trent Boult to Suresh Raina, No foot movement! That is what a short ball does. However, the last one was called one for the over so Boult probably was going to go full here. It is outside off and shapes away. Raina just has a push at it away from the body and misses.
02.22.2: Trent Boult to Suresh Raina, Yet another short one, this is a lot quicker and on the body, ducked under.
02.12.1: Trent Boult to Suresh Raina, Very predictable! Welcomes Raina with a short one and on the body, it is worked to square leg. There is a square leg and a leg gully too for him.
2 Overs | Runs : 3/2 | Run rate : 1.5
01.61.6: Adam Milne to Ambati Rayudu, That is nasty! Rayudu is floored. This is quite short, Rayudu looks to sway away from the line of fire by leaning back but is hit on the left arm. The ball deflects towards short fine leg and they cross.
01.51.5: Adam Milne to Ambati Rayudu, Goes short and on middle, Rayudu pulls but to short leg. That one again came slowly off the surface.
01.41.4: Adam Milne to Ambati Rayudu, Nothing slow about that one! That was very quick. Close to 140 KPH. It is on a length and around off, extra bounce and also skids through. Rayudu does well by dropping his hands at the very end.
01.31.3: Adam Milne to Moeen Ali, OUT! CAUGHT! Moeen Ali also goes without scoring and Milne is the one who gets a wicket. He does not take long to make an impression. This seems to have come slow off the surface.  It is shorter and outside off at 141.2 kph. Ali slashes at it from the back foot but this goes more off the toe end of the bat and towards Saurabh Tiwary at covers. He dives across and takes it. Chennai are in big trouble here. First a Kiwi removes an Aussie and now another Kiwi takes out an English player. Indian T20 League is up and running in style.
01.21.2: Adam Milne to Moeen Ali, That was nippy! Length and on off, this one jags back in. Ali looks to flick but gets hit high on the pads.
11.11.1: Adam Milne to Ruturaj Gaikwad, Outside off, Ruturaj Gaikwad pushes at it away from his body, it goes off the outer half down to third man for one.

00.50.5: Trent Boult to Faf du Plessis, OUT! TAKEN! Faf du Plessis goes for a duck and Boult once again gets a wicket in the first over. A huge one as we all know how good Faf du Plessis has been for Chennai. This is slightly shorter in length and just outside off. Faf goes after it but does so away from his body. This goes more off the outer half and straight to short third man where Adam Milne takes an easy catch. Perfect start for Mumbai. Boult just loves Dubai. He did not have the best of times in India in the first phase but he starts off brilliantly here.
00.40.4: Trent Boult to Faf du Plessis, Angles this one across, lands it on middle and on a length, Faf plays it to point.

00.20.2: Trent Boult to Ruturaj Gaikwad, A huge appeal but turned down! Going down leg! Boult goes fuller this time but the line is way too straight. Ruturaj Gaikwad looks to flick but misses. It hits the pad and goes down to third man. The bowler appeals and in the meantime, Faf calls his partner through for a run. Chennai are underway with a leg bye.
00.10.1: Trent Boult to Ruturaj Gaikwad, A little bit of swing for Boult! Also, he begins right on target! This starts on off and it tails back in. It is on a length. Gaikwad does not plant his front foot across and defends it with the movement.
