For the IPL 2019 Final, Mumbai Indians face Chennai Super Kings at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. Both teams are playing against each other for the 4th time in this season, with MI beating CSK each time previously.
On the big night, Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma won the toss and decided to bat first. After a decent start by the MI openers, CSK bowling unit made a good comeback and restricted the opponent to 149/8 after 20 overs.
Deepak Chahar bowled beautifully, picking 3 wickets for just 26 runs in his quota of 4 overs. Imran Tahir was brilliant as ever, picking up 2 wickets at the crucial point of the match.
It was a rare sight for cricket fans as on the second ball of the 17th over of the Mumbai Indians inning, Suresh Raina dropped a sitter from Hardik Pandya. Shardul Thakur dropped it short to Hardik and he mistimed it to the cover area. It looked a really simple catch for Raina, but the ball bounced off his hands.
Even, Ambati Rayudu can’t believe what, he just saw.
After getting dropped, Hardik Pandya took Shardul for a six in the same over. His innings was cut short by Deepak Chahar in the next over, getting Hardik lbw on a score of 16 runs in 10 balls.
