Well, it seems like yet another final of the tournament is going to be the low-scoring thriller at Hyderabad. However, it can be known after CSK batting but, in between, Chennai Super Kings have displayed top-quality skills in the middle to restrict Mumbai to a low score on the board. Shardul Thakur has been brilliant with the ball alongside spinners.

Getting into the details, it was Rohit Sharma, who won the toss initially and chose to bat first by making one change to the side that won the game against the same side in the qualifier-1. Justifying the toss decision, Quinton de Kock gave a stunning start for the team with his blistering striking.

He took on CSK fast bowlers to the cleaners before being dismissed to Shardul Thakur in the powerplay. He was quickly followed by the dismissal of Rohit Sharma, which made things look bleak for Chennai Super Kings. However, Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan balanced things in the middle.

Just when things looked in control for Mumbai, then came the brilliant spell of bowling from Imran Tahir, who dismissed Suryakumar Yadav. His wicket was quickly followed by the dismissal of Krunal Pandya when Shardul took a stunner of the catches in his own bowling.

For Chennai Super Kings, Imran Tahir and Shardul Thakur was the pick of the bowlers while the rest of the bowlers delivered economical spells to restrict Mumbai for a paltry score in the middle.
