With IPL2021 reopening on Sunday, the scorecard showed 24/4 when Chennai Super Kings finished the power playover after choosing their first match against Mumbai Indians. They lost Faf du Plessis, Moeen Ali, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni and Ambati Rayudu (retired wounds).
But by that time, their innings were over and the Superkings had an impressive recovery and posted a challenging 156/6. It was largely thanks to the opener Lutraj Guyquad, who made a mature knock to prevent the innings from collapsing, and as he turned his eyes, he began to find boundaries.
With 69 runs of CSK innings recorded in the last five overs, MI captain Keelon Polard believes his team has lost track of the agenda.
“I gave too much with the ball at the end,” Polard said in a post-match interview with the broadcaster.
Another failure of MI innings was the lack of major partnerships that could help stabilize tracking.
“We must have been in partnership. Later on, we can do a lot of different things in different ways. Losing 20 runs, I think that’s the difference. Their batters have been We tried to keep the momentum, but we didn’t. “
Like CSK, as Polard pointed out, MI lost his wicket in Powerplay, but refused to read the performance deeply, saying he still had six games left.
“You could have learned from their mistake of losing a lot of wickets in power play. It took a man to hit the bat deeply. There were some soft slaughter. Do it at this level. It can’t be achieved, but there are still six games left, “he said.
This is MI’s fourth defeat of the season and they will face the next Kolkata Knight Riders on Thursday.
