Chennai Super Kings (CSK) who are on thin ice in terms of the qualification scenario is off to a disastrous start. After losing Conway, Moeen Ali got out in the same over via a soft dismissal. In the next over, Bumrah removed Robin Uthappa with a peach of a delivery. Although Robin’s dismissal was a tight decision, there was no DRS available for him too.
CSK has lost in form Ruturaj Gaikwad in the powerplay as well courtesy of another soft dismissal. The opener edged a ball down the leg side from Daniel Sams in the 5th over. CSK has been pushed to the back foot and it will require a tremendous effort from skipper Dhoni and Ambati Rayudu who are currently in the middle.
• Conway gave out wrongly but no DRS was available due to a power cut.
• CSK reeling at 32 for 5 in the powerplay against Mumbai Indians.
