Lightning Boult strikes for Mumbai in IPL

MI defeated CSK by 10 wickets in Sharjah. "Rohit has been advised rest for the match against CSK".

Ishan Kishan slams quickfire half-century to put Mumbai Indians on top vs Chennai Super Kings in match 41 of Dream11 IPL 2020 in Sharjah.

But opening batsmen Ishan Kishan and Quinton de Kock eclipsed that in a mere 12.2 overs.

The duo toyed with the CSK bowling attack on a awful day for the MS Dhoni-led side to carry their bats through the innings.

However, both fell for a duck each, with Gaekwad falling leg before to Trent Boult and Jagadeesan getting caught in slips off Jasprit Bumrah, leaving the team tottering at three runs for the loss of three wickets.

Rock-bottom Chennai unravelled so quickly and spectacularly that at an early stage they appeared on track to post the lowest total in IPL history - the unwanted record now held by Royal Challengers Bangalore for their 49 all out against Kolkata Knight Riders in 2017 - before Curran saved their blushes.

Keiron Pollard, who was leading Mumbai in the absence of an injured Rohit Sharma, asked CSK to bat first, and the decision proved correct from the first over.

That marked something of a recovery for the bottom side, who were reeling on 3-4 after Boult (4-18) and Jasprit Bumrah (2-25) took two wickets apiece in devastating opening bursts.

Sam Curran prevented a sub-100 total for Chennai by reaching 52 from 46 balls but was he was out off the last ball to a Boult yorker, which gave the paceman his fourth wicket in his four overs. The change of ends did not change Boult's fortunes as he scalped Ravindra Jadeja's wicket as MI picked five wickets in the powerplay.

The pair plundered seven sixes and 11 fours between them to earn Mumbai their first 10-wicket win in their IPL history and send them top of the standings ahead of Delhi Capitals and Royal Challengers Bangalore on net run-rate. N Jagadeesan followed him to the pavilion off the next ball, poking at one to be caught by Suryakumar Yadav. In the next over, Chennai's top-scorer this season in Faf du Plessis (1) departed after edging the ball behind the stumps off Boult.

Been restricted to 24/5 in the powerplay, CSK further lost hopes in the next over as Dhoni (16) was dismissed by Rahul Chahar right after stepping out and hitting a six.
