Batting first, the Mumbai Indians struggled to get going for the most part as they were just 125 from 18 overs. Hardik Pandya and Pollard, in the end, smashed it all over the place getting 16 runs of the 19th over and 29 runs off the last over to take the total to a respectable 170.

Mumbai Indians win the game against the CSK

In return, there was another CSK collapse, losing both openers in the first 8 balls of the innings and then losing Raina in the 5 over when the score was just 33.  Kedhar Jadhav and MS Dhoni got together for a 54 runs partnership, but it came off 55 balls which pushed the required rate really high. Dhoni who was looking to take the game deep was on 12 off 21 balls as he was not able to rotate the strike. Dhoni then got out, trying to take on Hardik Pandya to get the team closer. But from there it was always going to be diffcult from there.

Mumbai Indians then cashed in and bowled well. Kedar Jadhav who scored 58 from 54 tried to get going as well, but they had left too much for the end and could not really catch up, and ended up losing the game by 37 runs.

The last 2 overs in the first innings really shited the game in favor of the Mumbai Indians and they never let go of that advantage. Although its just one loss for CSK, the top order batting may be a bit of a worry after collapsing two matches in a row.
