Chennai Super Kings defeated Mumbai Indians easily to win the El Classico of the league stage of IPL 2023 by 2-0. It was a convincing performance by the hosts to hand a tough loss to their arch-rivals. Here, we take a look at how Twitter reacted as CSK defeated Mumbai Indians in Chennai.
CSK defeat Mumbai Indians
It was down to the start with the bat that made MI lose grip on the game. They lost three quick wickets and from then, it was all about steadying the ship. While the likes of Nehal Wadhera helped MI avoid embarrassment, it was not possible for them to kick on and deliver a winning score for the team. After posting just 139 runs, it was all about picking some early wickets for MI to fancy a win. However, CSK openers were too good to let that happen. In the end, despite the fall of a few wickets, it was an easy victory for the men in yellow.
CSK seems to have found a gem in the form of Matheesha Pathirana. The youngster from Sri Lanka has been almost unplayable this season. After Dwayne Bravo retired, many were concerned with CSK’s performances in the death overs. However, the franchise has got a solid option in the form of Pathirana. Coming from the league of Lasith Malinga, Pathirana is able to ace those pin-point yorkers and at the same time, he is also able to execute some high-class variations to outfox the batters.
