Mumbai Indians (MI) beat Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by 37 runs at the Wankhede Stadium to register their 2nd win of the season. Chasing 171 runs, CSK were off to a poor start as they lost Ambati Rayudu for nought in the very 1st over. Again, in the 3rd over, Shane Watson went cheaply for 5. The required run rate soared following the dismissal of the openers cheaply. Even Suresh Raina failed to score big and was dismissed by Jason Behrendorff for 16, caught at deep cover by Kieron Pollard, who took a stunner. Captain MS Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav then stitched together a 54-run stand. Dhoni was dismissed for 12 off 21. Jadhav (58), who notched up his 4th IPL half-century, ran short of partners in the other end as CSK faltered in the chase to finish at 133/8 in 20 overs. This was the MS Dhoni-led outfit's first defeat in IPL 2019. Earlier, MI scored 170/5 in 20 overs courtesy a fine 59 off 43 balls by Suryakumar Yadav, 42 by Krunal Pandya and cameos from Man of the match Hardik Pandya (25 off 8) and Kieron Pollard (17 off 7). The duo scored 45 runs in last two overs. (SCORECARD)
