Ajinkya Rahane delivered a masterclass with a scintillating half-century, blending style and power, as Chennai Super Kings (CSK) clinched a seven-wicket victory against Mumbai Indians (MI) in their Indian Premier League (IPL) encounter at Wankhede Stadium on Saturday. This triumph propelled CSK to fourth place in the points table, boasting two wins and one loss for a total of four points. Meanwhile, MI languishes in the eighth position, having suffered defeat in both their matches thus far.
CSK faced a target of 158, but their pursuit got off to a shaky start when Jason Behrendorff dismissed Devon Conway for a duck. Nevertheless, the game’s tempo increased in the fourth over, during which Ajinkya Rahane thrashed Arshad Khan for 23 runs. Rahane continued his onslaught, hitting a pull over deep-midwicket to bring up CSK’s 50 in just 4.3 overs. He then raced to his own half-century off only 19 balls, including six fours and three sixes.
The powerplay concluded with CSK at 68/1, with Rahane (53*) and Gaikwad (8*) at the crease. Their partnership was eventually broken by Piyush Chawla, who dismissed Rahane for a 27-ball 61. Halfway through their innings, CSK stood at 97/2, with Shivam Dube joining Ruturaj Gaikwad in the middle. The team reached the 100-run milestone in 10.4 overs, and despite Dube’s dismissal for 28, Gaikwad and Ambati Rayadu saw CSK over the finish line at 159/3 in 18.1 overs. Behrendorff, Chawla, and Kartikeya each claimed a wicket for MI.
Earlier in the day, a superb display by CSK’s spinners, spearheaded by all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja, limited MI to a modest 157/8 in their allotted 20 overs. MI’s openers, Ishan Kishan and captain Rohit Sharma, commenced aggressively, but the latter fell for 21 in the fourth over. Kishan and Cameron Green attempted to rebuild the innings, but they were unable to capitalize on the strong start as CSK’s spin duo of Mitchell Santner and Jadeja took control of the game.
MI’s score stood at 84/5 after 10 overs, with Tim David joining Tilak Verma at the crease. Although the pair pushed MI past the 100-run mark, they soon succumbed to CSK’s bowling attack. In the end, MI reached 157/8, with Hritik Shokeen (18*) and Piyush Chawla (5*) unbeaten. Jadeja emerged as the standout bowler for CSK, claiming figures of 3/20, while Santner, Deshpande, and Magala each contributed a wicket.
