Disciplined Super Kings bowlers rein in Mumbai batsmen

-

Hyderabad: Chennai Super Kings dished out a disciplined bowling performance under pressure to restrict Mumbai Indians to 149 for eight in the IPL final here on Sunday.

After opting to bat, Mumbai ended up with a below-par total despite Kieron Pollard’s unbeaten 25-ball 41.

Deepak Chahar (3/26) was impressive once again and so was fellow pacer Shardul Thakur (2/37). The spinners, Harbhajan Singh (0/27) and Imran Tahir (2/23), too played a crucial role in limiting Mumbai Indians.

The Rohit Sharma-led side was dealing in sixes early on in their innings but all of a sudden, a promising start got converted into a wobbly one with Quinton de Kock and Rohit falling in quick succession, leaving Mumbai at 45 for two in the sixth over.

With two new batsmen at the crease, the runs dried up before Ishan Kishan hit Dwayne Bravo for two boundaries to take Mumbai to 70 for two in 10 overs.

Just when it seemed Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav will produce a much-needed partnership, two wickets falling in quick session for the second time in the innings, pegging Mumbai back.

Suryakumar played on leggie Tahir before the new batsman, Krunal Pandya, was dismissed with a good running catch from Thakur off his own bowling. It got worse for Mumbai when Kishan’s mis-hit went into the safe hands of Suresh Raina at cover.
