The Chennai Super Kings were dismissed for 97 runs in 16 overs against the Mumbai Indians on Thursday. It’s their lowest total in the Indian Premier League. CSK have now been bowled out for fewer than 100 runs twice in the league. CSK’s lowest score was 79 against MI on May 5, 2013. This was the third time in IPL history that Chennai had lost their five-wicket haul during the powerplay.
On Thursday, Chennai Super Kings were bowled out for 97 by Mumbai Indians pacers, who ran riot with the ball. Daniel Sams, an Australian pacer, made a great start to the match, dismissing Devon Conway and Moeen Ali in the opening over, and CSK were unable to recover. Mumbai put Jasprit Bumrah early in the attack, and he removed Robin Uthappa in the second over, as the Yellow Army continued to lose wickets at regular intervals.
CSK would have collapsed for less than 79, their lowest total in the IPL, if it hadn’t been for MS Dhoni’s 36 not out. Chennai Super Kings were knocked out for 79 while pursuing 140 on May 5, 2013. The Wankhede Stadium hosted that match as well.
CSK and MI are currently the only two teams left in the playoff race, with the remaining seven teams either in contention or on the verge of qualifying for the next round.
