Mumbai Indians stopped the yellow juggernaut, bringing to an end CSK’s seven-match winning by a whopping 60 runs at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Having posted a modest 139, the home team bowlers put up an inspired performance, led by Mitchell Johnson, to bowl out the visitors for 79 - their lowest-ever score in the IPL.
Chasing just 140, CSK started on a very lucky note as Michael Husseywas put down not once but thrice by Kieron Pollard at point off Johnson in the very first over. Johnson then struck thrice to demolish the CSK top order. He bowled Murali Vijay (2) first before Suresh Raina (0) was caught spectacularly by Pollard. Subramaniam Badrinath (0) was third to be dismissed as he was trapped leg before wicket. Dwayne Bravo (9) counter-attacked with consecutive boundaries off Pawan Suyal before he was caught by Ambati Rayudu to leave CSK reeling at 18 for 4.
The move to promote Ravichandran Ashwin (2) backfired as he was bowled by Harbhajan Singh. Pragyan Ojha then had Hussey (22) caught by Dwayne Smith in the deep. At the halfway stage, CSK were 48 for 6, still needing 92 runs. Ojha then dismissed the dangerous MS Dhoni (10) before Lasith Malinga bowled Chris Morris (1). Mohit Sharma (0) followed caught by Suyal. Ravindra Jadeja (20) was dropped on 11 by Pollard but Ojha eventually dismissed him as CSK were bundled out for 79.
Earlier MI won the toss and elected to bat. MI openers Sachin Tendulkar and Smith started cautiously. Tendulkar smashed Mohit Sharma for a boundary before depositing him for a six in the 6th over as MI made 32 from the Power Play. Ravindra Jadeja was hit for a six by Smith, but Jadeja came back to trap Tendulkar (15) leg before wicket. Bravo sent back Smith (22) caught off his own bowling. The dangerous Pollard (1) who was put down on 0 by Bravo was caught by Raina off Jadeja.
Dinesh Karthik (23) hit Jadeja for two boundaries and a six before holing out in the deep. Ashwin then bowled Ambati Rayudu (10) to leave MI five down. Harbhajan got off the mark hitting Ashwin into the stands. Rohit Sharma (39*) smashedBen Laughlin for a massive six in the 18th over. The last over bowled by Laughlin was taken for 19 runs as Harbhajan (25*) and Rohit Sharma added 57 runs in 4.5 overs. MI finished at 139 for 5.
