Mumbai Indians lost one of these matches on Sunday night, when Chennai Super Kings defeated hosts MI by a margin of 20 runs.

2. 26 runs in the last over

MS Dhoni scored 20 runs against Hardik Pandya in the last four balls of the innings. This was the real margin of victory. However, Hardik Pandya had no choice in bowling except himself. Akash Madhwal was there, but he had already given away 37 runs in 3 overs. In such a situation, Hardik bowled the last over and 26 runs were scored in it.

3. Rohit did not get support

Mumbai Indians got a good start while chasing the target of 207 runs. Even Rohit Sharma scored a century, but he did not get anyone's support. While Rohit Sharma scored runs at a strike rate of around 167, the overall strike rate of the rest of the batsmen was less than 130, which was the margin of victory.

4. Surya's wicket

Suryakumar Yadav had batted strongly in the last match and in this match he was out on the second ball itself. Surya's wicket fell just after Ishan Kishan's dismissal, which can be called the biggest turning point of the match, because everyone knows what Surya's record is at Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium.

5. There was no break in Pathirana

Mumbai Indians had no solution to CSK pacer Mathisha Pathirana. Pathirana dismissed Ishan Kishan and Surya in his first over. After this he did not bowl for a long time. When he returned, he dismissed Tilak Verma and Romario Shepherd in the third over. Only Rohit Sharma scored runs against him.
