By the virtue of the victory, Mumbai Indians have jumped to second spot in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 points table. In the chase, making a comeback for Chennai Super Kings (CSK) Murali Vijay top scored with 38 runs but failed to get support from the other batsmen.
CSK lost their top order in quick succession with only Dwayne Bravo (20) and Mitchell Santner (22) playing crucial cameos but failing to convert their start to match-winning knocks. Earlier skipper Rohit Sharma led from the front and helped Mumbai Indians post a competitive first innings total against Chennai Super Kings. Rohit and his opening partner Quinton de Kock started cautiously.
After the match every fans of Mumbai enjoyed their victory against Chennai but some fans had something to complain about the match yesterday. During the first innings, a candid moment of Hardik Pandya sitting next to “God” Sachin Tendulkar was shown in the big screen and in Televisions. Hardik Pandya who is a young Indian all rounder, set to play his first world cup, seen sitting with one leg on another aside Sachin Tendulkar whose fan base is the biggest in the country even after six years of his retirement as far as cricket is concerned.

Always despise the attitude of Hardik Pandya. He’s seen sitting crossed-leg while Sachin is sitting next to him. This sitting is rude and symbolizes the superiority. Not right manners when the legend of the game is sitting next to you. #CSKvMI
