Placed at number eight on the points table after its loss against Kolkata Knight Riders in the previous match, the Kane Williamson-led side will have to win both of its remaining matches to secure a playoff berth. Mumbai Indians on the other hand will into the contest with nothing to lose in terms of its destiny in the tournament but will be eager to climb up the points table and finish the tournament on a high note.

Mumbai put pressure on Chennai right from the first over by picking two crucial wickets. CSK struggled to overcome the early jolts and wickets falling at regular intervals.
While skipper MS Dhoni attempted to offer stability to Chennai’s innings with a resilient 36, his efforts could not turn things around. Chennai Super Kings were bowled out at 97
The chase, however, was not a smooth ride for Mumbai Indians wither. The team lost four early wickets before Tilak Varma and Hrithik Shokeen ensured that the side got past the winning line.
