Chennai Super Kings won the toss and decided to field first against Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium in the 15th match of this year’s Indian Premier League.

Pitch report:

“It’s not a turner. This will suit MI. This is an outstanding cricket wicket. The extra bounce is really going to help the batsmen. Dew is likely to come in later,”  said Sanjay Manjrekar and Brendon Mccullum in their pitch report.

Here is what the captains said:

MS Dhoni:

“We don’t look at the result, it’s bipolar. We look at doing the basics well. We will bowl first. It’s one of those wickets, if you don’t bowl in the right areas you will be punished. I feel it’s important to let the opposition put the runs on board and we will chase it later. With so much grass, it doesn’t look like a turner. We need to adapt quickly and take the game forward. We have got Mohit in place of Santner.”

Rohit Sharma:

“It’s an important game for us. I thought we played some good cricket, but couldn’t capitalize on the crucial moments. We would’ve chased first. It’s a blessing in disguise to bat. But it looks like a good wicket to bat. If we bat to our potential, we will get to a good score. We have got two changes. Mitchell McClenaghan misses out and Jason Behrendorff makes his debut for us. Mayank Markande is not well and Rahul Chahar replaces him. Hopefully, all of us together can deliver today.”

An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan.
You will never walk alone.
