MI vs CSK IPL 2022: Former Chennai Super Kings captain MS Dhoni once again showed his class against Mumbai Indians as he took Jaydev Unadkat to the cleaners in the final over of the match. Having lost Dwaine Pretorius in the very first ball of the final, Chennai were left with 17 to get off 5 balls with new man Dwayne Bravo on strike
Mumbai began their defense in impressive fashion as Daniel Sams packed off Ruturaj Gaikwads first ball. The right-handed batter slashed a cut straight to the backward point. The move to promote Mitchell Santner (11) to No. 3 did not work for Chennai. The Kiwi top-edged a short ball from Sams and was caught at mid-on.
Ambati Rayudu came in and slammed the first ball he faced to long leg for a maximum. Rayudu and Robin Uthappa combined to hit a few impressive boundaries as Chennai looked to seize back the momentum. Uthappa ended the powerplay in style, launching Unadkat for a six-over long-on.
A bit of late drama and its Dhoni who holds his nerves to finish it off with a boundary! Dhoni remains unbeaten on 28 off 13 balls.
Chennai Super Kings win by 3 wickets
