Hardik was elated as his team Mumbai Indians (MI) qualified for the Final of the 12th edition of the IPL. The franchise, under the leadership of Rohit Sharma, defeated the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) for the third consecutive time this season. Suryakumar Yadav’s 71 off 54 balls with 10 boundaries helped Mumbai get over the line at the MA Chidambaram Stadium.
In the first innings of the game, Hardik got to bowl just a couple of overs, but he conceded just 13 runs. During the run-chase, he came to bat when MI needed 31 runs off six overs. Hardik ended with 13 off 11 with one four. Mumbai chased down the target with nine balls to spare. On the other hand, CSK and Dhoni have to do some real hard work in order to win the second Qualifier on Friday, May 10.
