Daniel Sams, who took Devon Conway, Moeen Ali and Ruturaj Gaikwad back to the stands, was named the Man of the Match yesterday. His three wickets were the match-defining moment for Mumbai. With a weak line of players ahead, Chennai had a tough time going past hundred runs and settled for ninety-seven. Mumbai, on the other hand easily defeated CSK as they got the upper hand by winning the toss and bowling first. Tilak Verma was the highlight for Mumbai in batting as he managed to score the maximum runs of thirty-four not out. 

Daniels Sams stated, “The first few games didn’t go to plan. Had a little bit of time to reflect on those performances. I just figured out that I was focusing on the batter too much and not on my strengths. That was something to work on at training. We have different plans for different batters. We spoke about a lot – using the bouncer on all batters. I was really excited to get the opportunity to bat at No 3, that’s something Mahela Jayawardena spoke about to me today. Any opportunity with the bat, I am more than happy. The whole TATA IPL, beautiful wickets to bowl on. It’s been enjoyable, today’s pitch was bowling-friendly. Good to see a T20 game where the bowlers dominate.”

Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma post-match stated, “Looking at how the pitch was playing and to lose wickets upfront, there were tense moments in the middle. It was just about keeping calm and getting the job done. After losing those wickets at the start, we were a little calm and got the job done in the end. We have played a lot of cricket here. On so many occasions, we’ve had pitches like this. It’s nice to get bowlers into the game as well at times. It’s been batting-friendly pitches all over, it was good to see bounce and swing from both sides, which was good to watch. 

We want to win games, and at the same time we try out certain players. There are options that we still want to try. Tilak has been brilliant, playing for the first year, having such a calm head is never easy. I feel he’s going to be an all-format player for India pretty soon. He’s got the technique and temperament. A Lot of things are looking bright for him. And there’s hunger as well. Bumrah knows what he needs to do and what the team expects him to do which is the most important thing. He understands magnificent spells upfront and we saw what he did in the last game as well. Pollard has been a stalwart for Mumbai, he came out and said that he’s okay with that. We are keeping one eye on what the holes will be filled out for next year.”
