IPL 2 Game 47: Chennai Close Door on Mumbai Indians’ Campaign

bhajji not happy

The Chennai Super Kings punished a wayward Mumbai Indian team, making their victory impossible for the Mumbai team to get back into the IPL 2 contenders list at St. Georges Park, Port Elizabeth.
Sanath Jayasuriya once again relished his opening role. Where Sachin Tendulkar failed on the day, Jayasuriya’s thirty gave the beleaguered Mumbai Indians team hope. But the MI team failed to fully capitalize on the chances. It was surprising given that Jean Paul Duminy once again imposed himself on the innings, making sixty from fifty-four balls and starring in the relationship with Abhishek Nayyar who himself made thirty-three. However, the MI team failed to accelerate as desired, leaving themselves predictably vulnerable against Chennai Super Kings’ better batting line up with just 147 on board.
Chennai’s win was made possible because they managed to make thirty runs in the final twelve balls of the match and it came because of a persistent innings from Matthew Hayden who curbed his boisterous urge to chalk out an innings of character and depth. With the target in the realm of competitive but not challenging enough, one would have thought an innings like Hayden’s would have slowed down the rate. But while he tackled Lasith Malinga and Dwayne Bravo, he kept his head steady and steered Chennai to a position of victory, made possible by the combined late dash of Suresh Raina, Subramaniam Badrinath, and finally captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Hayden’s sixty was worth its weight in gold. Some of the Mumbai Indian batsmen would have rued their missed opportunities. But the ship has now set sail as MI are concerned. CSK though have opportunity to climb up the points table.
