IPL: CSK curtail MI's two-match win run

Coming into the match, both Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians had momentum in hand. Mumbai had shrugged off the poor start by covering it with two victories, whereas CSK also entered on the back of two consecutive wins. Thus, a cracker of a game was expected. The MI vs CSK game is dubbed as the El-Clasico of IPL and it is fair to say that the contest lived up to the expectations. After batting first, CSK put on a sizeable total on the board. Ruturaj Gaikwad (69), Shivam Dube (66) and MS Dhoni (20 off 4 balls) stood up and helped the team form a mighty total of 206 runs on the board. In reply, Mumbai Indians got the perfect start. Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma pummeled the CSK bowling to all parts of the park. After Kishan's departure, Rohit Sharma did not find ideal support from the other end. To make matters worse for MI, Matheesha Pathirana produced a memorable spell to down Mumbai. Chennai won the match by 20 runs, and Pathirana was adjudged the player of the match for taking 4 wickets and giving away just 28 runs in his quota of 4 overs.
