JioCinema Streaming Live Mumbai Indians Vs Lucknow Super Giants
MI Vs LSG is the Second Eliminator in the Indian Premier League, JioCinema Streaming Live Mumbai Indians Vs Lucknow Super Giants. Chennai Super Kings booked a berth in the 2023 TATA IPL Finals after completing a 15-run win over the reigning champions, Gujarat Titans on Tuesday at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. CSK’s innings was spearheaded by Ruturaj Gaikwad scoring 60 runs (44b, 7×4, 1×6) en route to a 173-run target for Gujarat.
The Titans couldn’t match up, getting bowled out with 157 runs on the board with Shubman Gill as their biggest contributor, adding 42 runs (38b, 4×4, 1×6). This will be Chennai’s 10th appearance in the IPL Finals and was their first win against the Gujarat Titans since the franchise’s inception in the 2022 season.
MS Dhoni’s sparkling record as a captain in the TATA IPL has further improved by him taking Chennai to their 10th Finals. He currently has four titles to his name and has moved one step closer to winning his fifth.
JioCinema TATA IPL expert Suresh Raina hailed Dhoni’s ability to lead teams to this late stage in the IPL consistently, “Look at how they reached the Finals, 14 season 10 Finals, I think it’s a great achievement. MS Dhoni kept it simple. He deserves credit and Ruturaj (Gaikwad) had told me that CSK wants to win the title for Dhoni.
Entire India wants to see Dhoni win the IPL. But what we got to see today is that it’s very challenging to beat Chennai on this ground… Everything he touches turns to gold, and that’s why he’s named Mahendra Singh Dhoni.”
The dismissal of Hardik Pandya in the sixth over played a massive role in this win for Chennai. JioCinema TATA IPL expert Parthiv Patel explained the careful instructions that Dhoni passed on to Maheesh Theekshana to ensure Pandya’s wicket would fall, “MS Dhoni tried to tell Theekshana to bowl within the stump and treated the off-side like a ring because they gave no room to Hardik and he didn’t have the chance to hit the ball from below and find the gap because there were six fielders on that side.
There was only one choice, to hit it over the top, but the ball was on the stump, which meant he had to create his own room. That’s why he lost his wicket. Nobody understands moments like that better than MS Dhoni, what his team needs in that particular moment, and which bowler is needed. He understands that well and that is why this team can continuously come back and every player recognizes MSD’s contributions.”
