Defending champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) managed to register a win against the five-time champions Mumbai Indians (MI) during a group stage encounter of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 played on April 21 (Thursday). The former CSK skipper MS Dhoni was at his absolute best as he scored an excellent 28* off 13 balls and won the match for his side.

Meanwhile, after the match, CSK skipper Ravindra Jadeja had a hilarious conversation with MI’s star batter Suryakumar Yadav as shared a light chat having met after a long time. To note, Surya was playing on 32 and was looking good before he played a shot that went right into the throat of Mukesh Choudhary stationed at the long leg on the bowling of Kiwi spinner Mitchell Santner.

In a 17-second video uploaded from MI’s Twitter handle, Ravindra Jadeja can be heard saying, “Brother please leave one corner of the ground for us to defend. Sometimes here. Sometimes there.” To which Suryakumar replied, “You had perfectly placed one fielder for me.” Jadeja then replied, “Yeah, I’d kept it right here because I knew you’d hit one here.”

Coming to the match, CSK skipper Jadeja won the toss and asked MI to bat first. His decision was proven right as pacer Mukesh Choudhary scalped captain Rohit Sharma and wicketkeeper-batter Ishan Kishan in the first over itself. Despite Suryakumar’s 21-ball 32, MI’s scoring rate continued to fall before some decent batting from Tilak Varma and Hrithik Shokeen made a partnership and took the five-time champions to 155/7 from their 20 overs.

In reply, the Mumbai bowlers applied pressure on the Chennai batters and ensured that the defending champions face the heat. CSK were 106/6 in the 16th over and it was looking all over for the defending champions. However, MS Dhoni took the matters into his own hands and smashed Jaydev Unadkat in the last over to take CSK over the line. CSK will play their next match against Punjab Kings on April 25 (Monday).
