The second phase of IPL 2021 started on Sunday. In the first match, there is a clash between Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians. Batting first after winning the toss, Chennai scored 157 runs for 6 wickets in the allotted 20 overs. For him, Ruturaj Gaikwad played an unbeaten 88 while batting unbeaten.
Chennai, however, had a very poor start. Three of his wickets went in the powerplay itself. The team had high hopes from vice-captain Suresh Raina. But he got out after playing a bad shot. However, not only was he out, but his bat was also broken in this shot.
Chennai’s condition was even worse because its top batsman Ambati Rayudu was injured and he retired hurt. Rohit Sharma and Hardik Pandya are not playing today’s match for Mumbai Indians. Kieran Pollard is captaining the team in place of Rohit.
Raina was constantly troubled by Mumbai pacer Trent Boult with his speed. Raina looked very uncomfortable to score runs. The ball on which he hit a four also hit the edge of the bat.
However, after losing four wickets for 24 runs, Chennai’s team looked to be in a lot of trouble. But after this, Gaikwad, first with Ravindra Jadeja and then Dwayne Bravo, took the team to a strong score.
