CSK is eliminated after Mumbai wins by 5 wickets.
The Mumbai Indians defeated Chennai Super Kings by five wickets in a low-scoring match here on Thursday, putting an end to the reigning champions’ slim chances of making the Indian Super League play-offs.
MI chose to bowl and bowled CSK out for 97, with bowler Daniel Sams (3/16 from 4 overs) ripping through the MS Dhoni-led side’s top-order with three fast wickets in a blazing first spell, before huffing and puffing their way to the short mark of 98 with 31 balls to spare.
Tilak Varma (34 not out off 32 balls) and Hrithik Shooken (18) soothed the ruffled emotions with a 48-run partnership for the fifth wicket in the fifth over. In 14.5 overs, MI scored 103 runs.
