21:59 IST: Thakur to De Kock, SIX! Similar six to Ishan Kishan's against Deepak Chahar. De Kock has pulled it towards long leg. Apart from the inevitable two points, MI are also set for a huge increase in NRR.
21:57 IST: Thakur to De Kock, FOUR! MI are making a cakewalk out of this run-chase. Overpitched and De Kock has put it over mid-off for four.
21:51 IST: Chahar to Kishan, SIX! WHAT A SHOT! Chahar changes line and length but Kishan remains unfazed. Short pitched and Kishan has pulled it away!
21:50 IST: Chahar to Kishan, FOUR! Batting of the highest class! Gets on top of the ball and whacks it away towards covers this time.
21:50 IST: Chaha to Kishan, FOUR! The youngster is only dealing in boundaries here. He has scored 24 runs so far, and 20 have come in fours. This one was slapped towards deep point.
21:46 IST: Hazlewood to Kishan, FOUR! Lucky! Kishan intended to guide a short-ptiched delivery over point but finds thick outside edge. Too high for first slip and ball sails to the boundary.
21:44 IST: Hazlewood to Kishan, FOUR! Almost a repeat of what we saw in the first ball of Hazlewood's previous over. A backfoot punch and finds the gap again. Strong start for MI.
21:42 IST: Chahar to De Kock, FOUR! Steps out and intended to smash it over covers but finds a thick edge. The ball sails into the nightsky but travels the distance. Falls in no man's land at deep backward point.
21:37 IST: Hazlewood to Kishan, FOUR! REPEAT! This one was a square cut and goes the same away. Excellent stroke from Kishan.
21:35 IST: Hazlewood to Kishan, FOUR! WHACKED IT! A strong backfoot punch from the youngster as he finds space between point and cover.
21:32 IST: Chahar to de Kock, FOUR! Straight! Chahar doesn't give room but bowls full again. De Kock opens the face of the bat.
21:31 IST: Chahar to de Kock, FOUR! Fullish outside off and de Kock gets a thick edge.
21:30 IST: Quinton de Kock and Ishan Kishan open for MI. Deepak Chahar to bowl first over.
21:14 IST: Boult to Curran, FOUR! FIFTY FOR CURRAN! Pulls it away at long leg boundary. Curran has taken the CSK to a respectable score here.
21:14 IST: Boult to Curran, FOUR! Fullish delivery outside off and Curran drives it towards deep point.
21:12 IST: Boult to Curran, FOUR! Pulls it away this time and finds a boundary! Important runs for CSK here.
21:07 IST: Bumrah to Tahir, FOUR! CSK reach three figures! Short pitched delivery and Tahir bends behind, edges it over the wicketkeeper for four.
21:01 IST: Coulter-Nile to Curran, FOUR! Clever lap shot, this. Curran has saved CSK from an almost-inevitable embarassment here. Length delivery, Curran waits and laps it behind for a four.
20:57 IST: K Pandya to Tahir, FOUR! Top-class shot from Tahir, that. Pitched slightly outside off and Tahir opens the face at the last second and finds the gap between backward point and fly slip.
20:46 IST: Coulter-Nile to Thakur, OUT! Slower bouncer from Coulter-Nile but Shardul had already committed to the shot. He opened the face of the bat but gets the timing horribly wrong. SKY takes the catch at backward point.
20:38 IST: Timeout. Curran and Thakur are aiming to take CSK to a respectable score here, but expect Pollard to turn to Bumrah now.
20:33 IST: CSK clutching at straws to find a positive here..
20:23 IST: Coulter-Nile to Curran, SIX! A short-pitched delivery and Curran has dispatched it towards deep fine leg. Curran remains the sole hope for CSK to achieve a respectable score here.
20:20 IST: Strategic timeout! Mumbai Indians were indeed the favourites, but no one had expected such a batting collapse. CSK lost five wickets in the powerplay and fell like a pack of cards.
20:17 IST: Chahar to D Chahar, OUT! SEVEN DOWN! Smart keeping from Quinton de Kock. Deepak Chahar -- like a few batsmen who were dismissed due to same decision-making -- goes for an attacking shot but misses. De Kock makes no mistake behind the stumps.
20:15 IST: Chahar to Curran, SIX! Powerful shot from Curran, and the one which would give him a world of confidence at this stage. Right in the slot and Curran slams it towards midwicket.
20:14 IST: What a spell from Trent Boult!

20:06 IST: Chahar to Dhoni, OUT! Dhoni falls in the trap! Quite unexpectedly, MS Dhoni goes for an attacking drive outside off and finds an outside edge. Quinton de Kock makes no mistake behind the stumps.
20:05 IST: Chahar to Dhoni, SIX! Dhoni shows some intent. Charges down the track on a flighted delivery and goes straight over the bowler's head.
19:59 IST: Boult to Jadeja, OUT! Very poor shot in this situation from Jadeja. Jadeja looks to go for an attacking pull after coming down the track on a length-delivery and finds Krunal Pandya at silly mid-on.
19:52 IST: Bumrah to Jadeja, FOUR! Poor delivery. Bumrah bowls down the leg side and Jadeja simply guides it towards deeep fine leg.
19:51 IST: Bumrah to Dhoni, FOUR! What a shot! A similar delivery outside-off and Dhoni sends it away to covers.
19:50 IST: Bumrah to Dhoni, FOUR! Not a confidence-inducing boundary but CSK will do with it anyway. First four in CSK's innings -- Bumrah finds a thick edge outside off and it goes in between the wicketkeeper and the first slip.
19:46 IST: Boult to du Plessis, OUT! The worst imaginable nightmare for CSK may be coming true today. Four down inside three overs!
19:41 IST: Bumrah to Jagadeesan, OUT! BUMRAH ON A HAT-TRICK! What a ball! Excellent seam position from Bumrah, kept it a little fullish outside off to invite Jagdeesan to drive. It finds a thick edge, however, and Suryakumar Yadav catches it at first slip.
19:38 IST: Bumrah to Rayudu, OUT! CAUGHT! There couldn't have been a better start for MI here. Bumrah bowls a lethal bouncer to Rayudu, the batsmen aimed to pull it towards long leg but was a little taken aback by the pace. The ball finds Rayudu's gloves and Quinton de Kock takes an easy catch.
19:37 IST: MAIDEN to start the proceedings from Trent Boult -- in Sharjah! Not the kind of start CSK were looking for in a must-win match.
19:34 IST: Boult to Gaikwad, BIG appeal for LBW! DRS taken from Pollard after discussion with Boult. REVIEW RETAINED! Gaikwad dismissed without scoring a run!
19:27 IST: Youngster Ruturaj Gaikwad and Faf du Plessis will open the CSK innings. Sam Curran shifted down. Trent Boult to begin the proceedings for MI.

18:38 IST: Hello and welcome to the live coverage of Chennai Super Kings vs Mumbai Indians!
Brief Preview: It had all started with this very fixture 35 days back at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. Chennai Super Kings, despite not being the favourites in the contest owing to absence of two of their stars - Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh - had defeated the defending champions by a comprehensive margin. But fate took a sharp turn since then. Chennai managed only two more wins in their next nine matches to stand at the bottom of the table and brink of elimination, while Mumbai, the perennial slow starters, bounced back strongly to win six of their next eight matches to stand third.
