'Dhoni finishes off in style' against Mumbai Indians to earn CSK thrilling victory

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 22 Apr 2022, 11:32 am

Mumbai/IBNS: A reincarnation of finisher Mahendra Singh Dhoni powered Chennai Super Kings to register their second Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 victory on Thursday, virtually ending Mumbai Indians' all hope in the race to the playoffs.

Chasing a modest target of 156 set by Mumbai, Chennai, powered by Dhoni's unbeaten 28 off 13 balls, scored the required runs in 20 overs with three wickets in hand.

Besides Dhoni, who hit a last-ball boundary to win the thriller, Ambati Rayudu (40 off 35 balls) and Robin Uthappa (30 off 25 balls) were also the significant contributors to the win.

Mumbai's sorry tale continued as the Rohit Sharma-led team once again suffered due to dismal batting performance as they could put 155/7 in 20 overs.

The figure could have been even less had Tilak Varma (51 not out off 43 balls), Jaydev Unadkat (19 not out off nine balls) not shine.

With the defeat, Mumbai became the first IPL franchise to lose all first seven matches in a season.
