Presently we can contend about this or essentially submit to the measurements: there has been no greater competition in the IPL than the one between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings. The two groups have won a joined seven titles from the 12 IPL seasons played so far. They’ve featured four finals and played five different ends of the season games. In games at impartial settings, the no holds barred stands at 5-5 yet the four-time champions Mumbai Indians lead 18-12 in all challenges, including two CLT20 games.
En route, the two groups have challenged some noteworthy games. Here’s a snappy return to six of the best.
- DY Patil Stadium, IPL 2010
2010 last was challenged in the scenery of Lalit Modi’s inescapable chopping out from the competition he made and his ensuing outcast from BCCI. CSK grabbed a standard all out of 168/5 on the rear of an unbeaten 35-ball 57 from Suresh Raina. Accordingly, Mumbai Indians’ research organization reacted with one defective system after another. It started with playing Abhishek Nayar at No.3. On the off chance that that wasn’t sufficient, they sent Harbhajan Singh at four while Ambati Rayudu, Saurabh Tiwary, JP Duminy, and Kieron Pollard lay in pause. The rationale, it was later clarified, was that they needed to keep the huge hitting Pollard from confronting CSK’s carriage of spinners.
The punt implied Pollard strolled into bat with 55 required from 24. He scoured 22 off an over bowled by Doug Bollinger however fell in the nineteenth over when MS Dhoni had Matthew Hayden positioned at a straight mid-off (he likewise had a long-off) and Pollard found the very defender with a full-blooded drive to blessing wrap CSK’s lady title.
- Pollard stands tall – Chepauk, IPL 2013
The group most loved Pollard gave penance for his past slip in this 2013 apparatus between the sides at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, securing an exciting nine-run win for the guests practically completely all alone. It was the Pondulkar (Ponting+Tendulkar) season and Mumbai were still to turn into the steely unit that Rohit Sharma would prompt the title. Here at Chepauk, they’d slipped embarrassingly to 83 for 6 when Pollard united with Harbhajan Singh to content a rebound. The Trinidadian demonstrated bizarre restriction, happening upwards of 19 specks. He more than made up from the other 19 he confronted, completing unbeaten on a 38-ball 57 to give Mumbai 148 to protect.
CSK messed themselves up in the pursuit and were left heaving at 66/5 when MS Dhoni assumed responsibility. Indeed, even as his accomplices got back to the cottage, Dhoni battled on and took the condition to 40 of 18. He at that point looted 17 off a Pollard over to make it 23 of 12. That got 12 off 6 as Mitchell Johnson vanished over the stands also. Off the main chunk of Munaf Patel’s last finished, Dhoni endeavored a whipped-flick to a length ball and seemed to have gotten another six until Pollard, fittingly, jumped up and finished a sharp catch to quiet the homegroup.
This IPL 2015 experience in Chennai shot a certain Hardik Pandya into the spotlight in a space of 8 balls. It was likewise one of those uncommon games when MS Dhoni transparently recognized that he botched strategically. It was an ordinary late-season experience at Chepauk where 160 was standard and spinners wore the pants. CSK made 158 and utilized R Ashwin and R Jadeja to stifle the Mumbai pursue through the center overs, to such an extent that skipper Rohit Sharma made a careful 22-ball 18. At the point when he was excused in the main chunk of the eighteenth over, he consistently made a hand signal towards the changing area as he left.
He would uncover later that he was gathering for Pandya to be conveyed to bat in front of the all set Harbhajan Singh. With 30 should have been scored off the last two overs, Dhoni accepted a call to bowl Pawan Negi for the nineteenth over when overs of both Mohit Sharma and Ashish Nehra remained. Negi, who up to that point was affordable, wound up surrendering four sixes in an over – three of which were hit by this gaunt 21-year-old player – and MI drifted to triumph in the following over, finishing CSK‘s 10-coordinate series of wins at home. Another IPL legend was conceived.
- Only three balls for Dr. Smith – Wankhede Stadium, IPL 2012
The 2012 experience between the MI and CSK at the Wankhede Stadium included a star abandon a player who has turned out both in the Mumbai blue and the Chennai yellow. Before CSK saw an incentive in Dwayne Smith, the opener, he played as an all-rounder and a No.6 batsman for Mumbai Indians. Here, pursuing CSK’s 173, the hosts were drifting to the triumph following a 126-run second-wicket remain between Sachin Tendulkar and Rohit Sharma. Notwithstanding, from 134/1, Mumbai endured a mystifying breakdown and entered the last over of the pursuit requiring 16 to win.
