Mumbai Indians crash Chennai Super Kings in a last-ball thriller

Pin It

This match was a reminder of one of those matches where Tendulkar played a match-winning knock and brought his team in a winning position and as soon as he perished, the tide turned to the other side. But Dwayne Smith didn’t let the legend down this time

Mumbai needed 14 runs of the last three balls and Dwayne Smith produced magical figures of 6,4,4 off them to clinch a spectacular win for his side at the Wankhede Stadium.

Mumbai needed 16 runs from the last over and Dhoni threw the ball at experienced Hilfenhaus who bowled a maiden first over for the defending champions. Smith who struck a crucial six in the penultimate over smashed the first ball towards long-off for a single. Malinga was the man on strike and he was taken by Hilfenhaus’ pace as he perished for a first ball duck.

RP Singh was the new batsman and he managed to get Smith back on strike with a single towards cover. Smith injected life into the crowd and his team-mates with a six over long on with extreme power. The next ball was bludgeoned over the bowlers head for another boundary. Smith had gained confidence and Hilfenhaus missed a yorker off the last ball as a bullet shot by Smith produced another boundary towards long-off that made the crowd go berserk.

Earlier, after a mediocre performance in the tournament so far, Chennai Super Kings did well to score 173 runs. Murali Vijay who was back to some form in the previous outing, hit some brutal blows to get Chennai off to a flyer.
