Bangalore: May 23, 2012

 

Mumbai Indians need 188 runs to win against Chennai Super Kings to qualify for the second qualifier of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2012. After early blows, Chennai recovered well to reach 187 in their alloted 20 overs.

 

In an interesting move, out of form Harbhajan Singh bowled the first over. Michael Hussey survived a close lbw appeal as the Mumbai captain conceded only a single in the over.

 

Chennai were jolted in the second over as Dhawal Kulkarni dismissed Murali Vijay and Suresh Raina off the first two deliveries. Vijay was caught at first slip by Rohit Sharma and Raina dragged a delivery onto his woodwork.

 

Harbhajan followed the Kulkarni over with a maiden as Hussey was yet to get off the mark. However, Badrinath and Hussey gradually started rebuilding Chennai’s innings with few boundaries in the overs that followed. 

 

As the tenth over approached, the duo started attacking the Mumbai bowlers. The tenth over went for 14 and the 11th- which was bowled by Harbhajan was expensive as he was hit for two sixes and a four. 

 

Badrinath and Hussey fell in quick succession, but Dhoni walked out as a man on a mission. He dispatched his first boundary for four.

 

Chennai lost Jadeja in the 16th over to Kulkarni and that wicket didn’t deter Dhoni as he dispatched the next three deliveries for fours.  

 

It was Dhoni all along as the Mumbai bowlers bore the brunt of his fury. It was due to his knock that Chennai reached their 150 with two overs to spare. Dwayne Bravo also got into the act with a few dazzling strokes.

 

Even Malinga wasn’t spared asDhoni hit him for six with the trademark helicopter shot in the 19th over. That over went for 18 as Chennai pushed towards a formidable total.

 

Kulkarni’s brilliant figures went pear-shaped as Dhoni and Bravo smashed him to all parts of the ground in the slog overs. In the 20th over, Bravo hit him for two sixes. Dhoni brought up his fifty off the last over of the innings with a double.  

 

Brief Score: CSK 187 for 5 (MS Dhoni 51*, Michael Hussey 49, Subramaniam Badrinath 47, Dhawal Kulkarni 3 for 46) in 20 overs vs MI
