He made a partnership of 52 runs with Ravindra. Then in the eighth over, Rachin was out after scoring 21 runs in 16 balls.

Rohit Sharma opened with Ishan Kishan and was in excellent form. Wankhede saw the old Rohit as he hit eleven fours and five sixes to score 105 runs in 63 balls. This was the third century of the season after Virat Kohli and Jos Buttler. Rohit’s second IPL century was his highest score since 2012.

However, Rohit needed support from the other end, which he hardly got. Ishan Kishan was out after scoring 23 runs in 15 balls, Suryakumar Yadav was out after scoring zero and Hardik Pandya was out after scoring two runs in six balls. Mathisha Pathirana dismissed Ishan and Surya, while Tushar Deshpande dismissed Pandya.

Tim David (13 off 5 balls) could not do anything special after starting with two sixes. Romario Shepherd (1 off 2 balls) was dismissed by Pathirana in the 18th over.

Mumbai needed 47 runs to win in two overs. MI scored 13 runs in the 19th over, thanks to Rohit Sharma’s 6 runs off Mustafizur Rahman, but it was clearly not enough. Rohit completed his century with a four in the 20th over. Mumbai could only reach 186/6, 20 runs less than Chennai’s score. In this IPL match, MS Dhoni’s quick-fire 20-run knock in the last over made all the difference.
