On Thursday, Chennai Super Kings faced their arch-rival Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. The game is crucial for both teams, as both of them are at the bottom of the table. CSK have only won one out of their six games, whereas MI has lost six games in a row. In the first innings, CSK restricted MI at a score of 155. Mukesh Choudhary was the hero for CSK, as he took the massive wickets of Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan in the first over of the match, pushing MI to the backfoot. Later, Choudhary went on to take the wicket of man in-form Dewald Brevis. Choudhary completed his quota of four overs, with bowling figures of 3/19, helping CSK restrict MI at a score of 155 runs.
It was later noticed that the young left-arm medium-pacer resembles the bowling action of Zaheer Khan the Indian hall of fame cricketer. The loading point and bowling action of Zaheer Khan and Mukesh Choudhary are almost the same, stating the success Choudhary is getting this IPL. CSK Captain Ravinder Jadeja also has a lot of faith in Choudhary and looks up to him at the crucial stages of the match. It will be exciting to see how Choudhary performs in the upcoming games and whether he’ll be one of the next big things in Indian cricket.
