Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Mumbai Indians

10th Match (N), Dubai (DSC), Sep 28 2020, Indian Premier League
Mumbai Indians



Mumbai Indians is a heavily decorated franchise with many accolades to its name. Mumbai Indians are also the defending champions of the IPL trophy. Apart from 2019, the MI squad has lifted the IPL championship trophy three more times. Furthermore, Mumbai Indians also has 2 Champions League trophies on display in the team’s trophy chamber. Rohit Sharma’s captaincy has contributed significantly to the team’s current reputation. The franchise has also produced one purple cap winner and one orange cap winner. In the 2010 run of the tournament, Sachin Tendulkar of Mumbai Indians was declared the most valuable player. All in all, MI has the resume that every team in the IPL dreams of. The team’s victory against CSK in the 2019 IPL final was yet another marvelous clash produced by the tournament.

On the other hand, CSK’s involvement in the IPL History ranges from disingenuous to spectacular. The team’s supreme court-mandated suspension in 2015 severely tampered CSK’s reputation. However, the team didn’t fail to bounce back after returning to the IPL’s list of competing franchises. The most stellar track-record in IPL History after the Mumbai Indians in held by CSK. Chennai Superkings has not only won 3 IPL trophies, but two Championship League trophies as well. In other words, if CSK wins another IPL trophy, it will equal the accomplishments held by MI. Thus, the clashes between both these teams carry a unique sense of excitement that cannot be replicated.

MI vs CSK 2020

Well, what a match to start the 2020 edition of the IPL! How did the Mumbai Indians lose that? Sharma and de Kock put on 46 runs at better than 10 an over. Tiwary, who looks in fine form collected 42 runs off 31 deliveries to be the home side’s top run-scorer as the Mumbai Indians finished light on 162 off their 20 overs, for CSK Chawla kept things tight finishing with 1/21 off his 4 overs. He doesn’t look fit enough to be a bowler, but his spell shows he will be an important part of CSK’s quest for the final. Ngidi, for MI, also looks in fine for – he managed 3 wickets off his 4 overs. With CSK needing 163 to win, things couldn’t have started any worse.

CSK,a t 2-6 off 2 overs were all of a sudden at odds of 4s to win (MI shortened to 1.12). But from the 3rd over it was all one-way traffic as du Plessis and Rayudu battered the Mumbai Indians bowlers. Bowling one of his worst IPL Bumrah spells, he was plundered for 43 runs and looked entirely ineffective. Boult and Pattinson were the picks of MI’s bowlers. All in all, though MI was in a strong position twice and failed to convert – yet another opening match loss to the Mumbai Indians.
