Mumbai, May 12: Chennai Super Kings were on Thursday (May 12) eliminated from the race to the IPL 2022 playoffs after they went down to Mumbai Indians by xxx wickets.
After this defeat, CSK under MS Dhoni have 8 points from 12 matches and the maximum points they can reach is 12 even if they win the remaining two matches and that will not help them qualify for the knockouts.
MI have already been eliminated from the race to the IPL 2022 playoffs. They now have 6 points from 12 matches. The course of the match was almost decided once Mumbai bowled out Chennai for a paltry 97.
The Wankhede Stadium pitch offered some carry and pace to the MI pacers — Jasprit Bumrah, Daniel Sams and Riley Meredith. The trio bowled with venom and pace, and used the short-pitched deliveries to telling effect.
CSK skipper MS Dhoni played a lone hand with an unbeaten 36 but there was no real support for him from the other end.
The CSK bowlers tried their best to make a match out of it but the total was just too inadequate for it.
