Defending champions Mumbai Indians were up against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in a thrilling encounter on Saturday at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi. The Super Kings majorly dominated the game as they posted a mammoth total of 218 runs on the scoreboard. However, Mumbai’s power-hitter Kieron Pollard caused carnage on the field in the second half of the second innings as he ensured that Mumbai Indians win the nail-bitter by four wickets. Pollard played a spectacular knock of 87 runs off just 34 deliveries at a strike rate of 255.88.
MI’s win also resulted in many people questioning MS Dhoni for his captaincy and field placement in the last over of the match. On the last ball, MI needed just two runs to seal the game but surprisingly there were no fielders on the leg side inside the circle. Pollard took the advantage of the same as he punched the yorker by Lungi Ngidi towards the long-on and ran to take two runs.
