Mumbai Indians should be the happier team heading into the break, as they restricted a strong CSK lineup to just 169 in their allotted overs.
This is a must win match for MI, as they desperately need a win to stay alive in the competition. Their intensity on the field clearly showed it as well, as the bowlers started really well.
Krunal Pandya was brilliant with the ball, as he picked up the dangerous Watson and Rayudu in his first couple of overs. Suresh Raina was superb though, as he looked in great form and stroked a lovely 75.
Dhoni looked in fantastic touch as well, as Mahi was quite superb early on. The brilliant CSK skipper was superb, but was quickly dismissed much to the relief of Rohit Sharma.
Dhoni received a standing ovation from the Pune crowd, as Dhoni mania was certainly there for everyone to see. The brilliant CSK skipper had a moment during the match, when he came down the track and missed the ball.
He quickly got his bat back in though, as Dhoni was far too quick for young Ishan Kishan. It was a superb moment though, as people saw that Dhoni made a rapid quick return before Kishan could whip off the bails.
Dhoni will hope that his team get over the line in this match though, as a couple of victories could see CSK qualify for the playoffs.

Wonder what would have happened if Dhoni was the keeper instead of Kishan? Food for thought!
