A fiery five-wicket by Akash Madhwal helped Mumbai Indians (MI) seal an 81-run win over Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) in their Indian Premier League (IPL) eliminator match at Chennai on Wednesday, setting up a clash with defending champions Gujarat Titans in Qualifier 2. LSG has been knocked out of the tournament. In the chase of 183, LSG was off to a poor start. Akash Madhwal continued his brilliant form, dismissing Prerak Mankad for three off six balls, with Hritik Shokeen taking the catch. LSG was 12/1 in 1.5 overs.

The North Indian side was dealt another heavy blow in the powerplay as the dangerous Kyle Mayers was dismissed for 18 off 13 balls. Chris Jordan took his first wicket and Green took a great catch. LSG was 23/2 in 3.2 overs. Following this, Marcus Stoinis and Krunal Pandya started to build a partnership. The duo took LSG through the remainder of the powerplay without any wicket.

A heavy blow was dealt to LSG’s hopes as David and Ishan Kishan ran out Stoinis for 40 off 27 balls. His knock had five fours and a six. LSG was 79/6 in 11.5 overs. LSG was bundled out for 101 in 16.3 overs. MI won by 81 runs to seal the qualifier 2 match against Gujarat Titans. Madhwal was the pick of the bowlers, taking 5/5 in 3.3 overs.

Solid knocks from Cameron Green, Suryakumar Yadav and a fine cameo from Nehal Wadhera in the death overs helped Mumbai Indians (MI) reach 182/8 in their 20 overs of Indian Premier League (IPL) eliminator against Lucknow Super Giants at Chennai on Wednesday. Electing to bat first, skipper Rohit Sharma and Ishan gave yet another brisk start to MI. The duo smashed LSG skipper Krunal Pandya for 16 runs in the third over, including two fours and a six.

Cameron Green was next up on the crease. The centurion from the last match started by smashing Naveen for two successive boundaries. However, Ishan could not sustain himself at the crease for longer as he edged the ball straight into the hands of wicketkeeper Nicholas Pooran for 15 off 12 balls. Yash Thakur got his first wicket. MI was at 38/2 in 4.2 overs.

Suryakumar and Green started to hit aggressively and built a partnership. The duo also brought up their fifty-run stand in just 28 balls. At the end of 10 overs, MI was at 98/2, with Green (41) and Suryakumar (27) unbeaten. MI crossed the 100-run mark in 10.1 overs. Naveen turned the momentum in MI’s favour, taking big wickets of Suryakumar (33 off 20 balls, with two fours and two sixes) and Green (41 in 23 balls with six fours and two sixes). MI sunk to 105/4 in 11 overs.
Tim David and Tilak Varma started to build a partnership but the run flow slowed down a bit.

Nehal Wadhera came next as Impact Player. With the help of a six from him, MI crossed the 150-run mark in 17.1 overs. Naveen delivered three straight wides in the over. But he got the last laugh as Tilak was dismissed for 26 off 22 balls, with Deepak taking another catch. Naveen got his fourth wicket. MI was 159/6 in 17.3 overs.

MI’s downward spiral in the second half continued, with pacer Mohsin Khan getting his first wicket. Chris Jordan skied the ball into the air and found the hands of Deepak yet again.
