On the other hand, MI remains at the sixth position in the standings, with just 7 points to their name. This loss has put them in a tricky situation as they need to win their remaining matches to keep their hopes of making it to the playoffs alive.

CSK won the toss and chose to bowl first, causing the MI team to struggle and lose three of their top batters within the power play, reaching a score of 16 for 3 by the third over. Deepak Chahar and Tushar Deshpande performed exceptionally well, with Chahar picking up the wickets of Ishan Kishan and MI captain Rohit Sharma, while Deshpande removed Cameron Green.

Despite Surya and Wadhera’s 55-run partnership, Nehal and Suryakumar attempted to get their team out of trouble, but Jadeja eventually dismissed Suryakumar Yadav, ending their partnership. Nehal scored a timely fifty but did not receive much support from his teammates, and Pathirana’s superb performance in the slog overs restricted Mumbai to a total of 139 runs.

Chasing the modest target, Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway made an explosive start to the innings, putting 46 runs on the board in the first four overs. Mumbai’s captain Rohit Sharma had to bring in Piyush Chawla to break the partnership, dismissing Gaikwad in the fifth over. Rahane then partnered with Conway to steer the game in their favour, making a 41-run partnership for the second wicket before Chawla dismissed Rahane.

Although Conway played a crucial role in leading CSK to a commanding position, he was eventually dismissed. Shivam Dube hit some significant blows towards the end, and MS Dhoni scored the winning run, leading CSK to a six-wicket victory.
