Qualifier 1, MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai 07 May, 2019

Toss won by Chennai Super Kings (decided to bat)

Mumbai Indians beat Chennai Super Kings by 6 wickets

Man of the Match: Suryakumar Yadav


STAT ATTACK: Mumbai Indians win against CSK by 6 wickets

5th time Mumbai Indians have made it to the IPL Finals

2nd time they have managed to beat CSK 3 times in a single season

Only team to beat CSK 3 times in a single season

Suryakumar Yadav's highest score in the IPL surpassing his score of 70 he scored in 2018 vs Rajasthan Royals


Those are the winning runs. Suryakumar Yadav deservedly gets those as he hits a boundary over the keeper's head with a lap shot and follows that up with a single towards the leg-side. Mumbai Indians win this one by six wickets meanwhile CSK will head to Vizag for the eliminator!


Ravindra Jadeja concedes just 1 run in that over. Still not much to cheer for though for the home team. Mumbai Indians cruising along rather easily at the moment. Just 6 runs needed from final two overs


Time for a strategic timeout here. Mumbai Indians almost home here but funnier things have happened in the past as we know! Currently Mumbai are 116/4 and need just 16 runs from final 4 overs


Jadeja almost had another wicket there as he induces the outside edge from Jadeja but Watson drops a tough chance at first slip.Tough but ones that should be taken considering the situation CSK find themselves in. 


WICKET! It is a clean catch and Tahir indeed has two in two. A full ball outside off, Krunal looked to hit it back but while doing so, the bat hit the ground and the ball lobbed off the bottom of the bat back to the bowler.


WICKET! Much needed for Chennai Super Kings. Imran Tahir has got the breakthrough here. Ishan Kishan with a tired shot there as he looks to go for the pull but its the skidder which goes onto hit the off stump. Ishan departs for 28 off 31 balls here. Mumbai are 101/3


Extremely smart batting this by Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav. They are finding the gaps quite easily and with absolutely no scoreboard pressure, Chennai desperately need wickets to stay in this game. Mumbai are 92/2 after 13 overs. Just 40 needed from final 7 overs


Harbhajan Singh concedes five runs in his final over and he ends with figures of 1/25 after his four overs. That's good bowling but he would have liked more wickets, especially on this pitch. Mumbai are 85/2 after 12 overs

Rohan Gavaskar, Former India Cricketer 22:28(IST)

What a wonderful partnership .. Ishan Kishan and surya showcasing their batting skills superbly .. both batting with maturity


Back to back boundaries for Suryakumar Yadav here and this time its Tahir who is leaking runs here. Tahir has been the go to man when it comes to wickets for CSK but Mumbai have tackled his threat really well. They are 81/2 after 11 overs


Fine batting this from the pair of Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav. They have managed to keep the Chennai bowlers at bay and are doing it really easy at the moment. Half-way stage into the game and Mumbai are more than halfway through to the target. They are 69/2 after 10 overs


Both Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan doing it easily at the moment, they are rotating the strike well and picking up quick 1s and 2s. CSK need a wicket urgently here. Mumbai are 54/2 after 8 overs


Ravindra Jadeja is on the money here in his first over. This type of pitch is likely to suit him as even he won't know which will turn and which will not! He concedes just 4 runs in his first over and MI are 48/2 after 7 overs


This is an excellent powerplay for Mumbai Indians you have to say. Though they have lost two wickets but a flurry of boundaries has meant that they have reached 44/2 after 6 overs. They can manage to take this easy a bit. Calm heads will be important in this chase!

Rohan Gavaskar, Former India Cricketer 22:01(IST)

The strategy from the Indians is very clear . Go hard against the medium pacers


Chahar's third over leaks runs here, back to back boundaries for Suryakumar Yadav here. Though that also included a dropped catch from Murali Vijay. Mumbai Indians are now 33/2 after 5.1 overs

Rohan Gavaskar, Former India Cricketer 21:55(IST)

Two big wickets . Quinton de kock has been in fabulous form but this is a tough pitch to bat on . Young Ishan Kishan is going to have to bat with maturity . He is a top class talent .


WICKET! Harbhajan Singh strikes now, Quinton de Kock departs for 8 as he looks to find another boundary by going inside out but hits it straight to his Proteas skipper Faf du Plessis, who takes a good catch at long off. Mumbai are 21/2


Quinton de Kock is really leading the early charge here, again gets a boundary in the over as he laps Chahar towards fine leg for a four. These are good tactics from Mumbai Indians, they need a solid start in the powerplay to ensure there are set in chase.


Harbhajan Singh sharing the new ball here along with Deepak Chahar. de Kock with an excellent late cut there to pick a boundary. Mumbai Indians are now 15.0 after two overs here


A boundary on the final delivery for Suryakumar Yadav as a flying outside edge goes past slip and the short third man fielder for a boundary.Really luck that but MI won't mind. They are 8/0 after the first over


WICKET! Early breakthrough for Chennai Super Kings here and its the big wicket of Rohit Sharma. After a boundary first ball, Rohit looks to hit towards the leg-side but the ball swings just enough to beat the edge. Hits flat of the back pad. Umpire raises his finger, Rohit decides to review but it stays as umpire's call. Rohit departs for 4 and MI are 4/1

Rohan Gavaskar, Former India Cricketer 21:19(IST)

This is a competitive score . Excellent batting from Rayudu and Dhoni . The first 6 overs of the Indians innings will be crucial . Will Rohit and de kock go after the quick bowlers? 


This is top class bowling from Jasprit Bumrah. Just shows his class here and bowls perfect yorkers back to back. Excellent this but CSK still manage to reach 131/4 here. No doubt it will be a challenging chase this for Mumbai Indians if they are to reach the final.


Jasprit Bumrah gets the important wicket or maybe not! It's a no ball from Jasprit Bumrah! Dhoni is caught but umpire Llong checks it, and its a front foot no balls! Would you believe this. Free hit as well


Big over this for Chennai Super Kings, they pick 15 runs from that one as Dhoni steps on the accelerator here. Chennai Super Kings are currently 122/4 after 19 overs here


SIX! Smashed from Dhoni, in the slot from Malinga and it goes over the boundary line for a maximum. Dhoni and Rayudu also complete the 50-run partnership here.

Not too long ago, Rohit Sharma called the rivalry the 'El Classico' of IPL. That's how fierce the duel between Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians has been over the years. It's perhaps the only major rivalry in the tournament.

It's apt that these two top sides will play the first qualifier of the 2019 edition on Tuesday. On any other day, CSK would have been firm favourites for the match given the match is in their 'Den', the MA Chidambaram stadium in Chennai. However, if at all there's one team that can claim to have had the edge over CSK in Chennai, it's MI. Rohit Sharma's side was the only team to beat CSK at Chepauk this season.

In fact, they've not lost a game in Chennai since 2010. MI are also the only side to beat CSK twice this season. Mumbai come into the game having won their last two matches, against Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders. CSK come into the game on the back of a loss to Kings XI Punjab in Mohali. They also have an injury issue, with Kedar Jadhav out of the tournament with a shoulder problem.


These are enough reasons to even make them favourites for the game on Tuesday. Yet, no one in the right mind would rule out CSK in Chennai. The difference between Tuesday's game and the last time the two sides met in Chepauk is the fact that MS Dhoni is back, which makes a massive difference. CSK have looked lacklustre in Dhoni's absence, but with him around in a crucial game, expect them to be charged up.

CSK don't have the team to score massive like MI do, as was evident from their game against KXIP in Mohali. However, they do have knowledge of conditions in Chepauk and can adjust accordingly.

Faf du Plessis and Suresh Raina have struck form at the right time, easing some burden off Dhoni. MI are the most balanced side in the IPL, with ability to counter any condition. They have options for every department and have no apparent weakness. All signs for a cracker of a game, with the loser getting another chance to make it to the final.


Suresh Raina: With two half-centuries in the last two matches, Raina has struck form at the right time for CSK. His poor season until then, coupled with Shane Watson's struggles, made CSK heavily reliant on Dhoni the batsman. Watson has continued to struggle, making Raina's role even more crucial. How he finishes could well decide CSK's fortunes in the last leg of the tournament.

Rohit Sharma: The MI captain was getting cameos but struggled to convert them into big knocks. He did that to an extent in the game against KKR, taking his side home with a half-century. Rohit also made a half-century in the game in Chennai earlier in the tournament, and will have to do it once again on a pitch that's not easy for batsmen.


Mumbai: They are unlikely to change a winning combination.

Chennai: Kedar Jadhav is out with an injury. Expect Dhruv Shorey, or perhaps M Vijay, to replace him in the XI.


CSK: Faf du Plessis, Shane Watson, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni(w/c), Dhruv Shorey, Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Deepak Chahar, Harbhajan Singh, Imran Tahir

MI: Rohit Sharma(c), Quinton de Kock(w), Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Mitchell McClenaghan, Rahul Chahar, Jasprit Bumrah, Lasith Malinga
