Madhwal (5 for 5 in 3.3 overs) was the pick of the bowlers for MI. The pacer got the crucial wickets of Prerak Mankad, Ayush Badoni and the dangerous Nicholas Pooran for a golden duck before removing Ravi Bishnoi and Mohsin Khan in the closing stages.

Piyush Chawla (1 for 28 in 4 overs) and Chris Jordan (1 for 7) were also among the wickets for MI as the fielders led by skipper Rohit Sharma and Cameron Green executed three run outs. In fact, LSG collapsed from 69 for 2 to 100 All Out.

Marcus Stoinis (40 off 27 balls) was the lone batter who looked threatening for LSG, but a clash with Deepak Hooda in the middle cost him his wicket via a run out. Hooda, who himself was run out later, was also involved in another run out with K Gowtham being the victim this time.



Earlier, opting to bat, MI lost openers Rohit (11 off 10 balls) and Ishan Kishan (15 off 12 balls) inside powerplay, but Suryakumar Yadav (33 off 20 balls) and Green (41 off 23 balls) shared a 65-run stand to take the team past 100.

For LSG, Naveen Ul Haq was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 4 for 38 in 4 overs, while Yash Thakur (3 for 34) and Mohsin (1 for 24) were also among the wickets.

LSG vs MI Eliminator 2023 Post Match Comments

Losing captain, Krunal Pandya (LSG) said: “We were in a good position at one stage, but everything started (going wrong) when I played that shot, we should have played better cricket.

“That shot (his wicket) was not on, I completely take the blame for that. The ball was coming nicely on to the bat, we just had to bat better. We didn’t play good cricket after that strategic break.”

On team selection, Pandya added: “Quinton de Kock is a quality batter, but Mayers has a better record here, so we went ahead (in the playing XI) with him. Their batters bat really well against fast bowlers, so I thought of starting with spin against them.”

Winning captain Rohit (MI) said: “That is what we have done over the years. People don’t expect us to do what we have done, but we managed to.

“He (Akash) was the part of the team last year as a support bowler, and once Jofra was gone and I knew he had skills and the character to do the job for us. Over the years we have seen many guys coming in from Mumbai Indians and playing for India.”

“It is important to make them (youngsters) feel special and make them feel part of the team, my job is to just make them comfortable in the middle. They are very clear in their roles about what they need to do for the team and that’s what you want.

On fielding and playing in Chennai, Rohit added: “As a team we enjoyed it (fielding). Good to see everyone contributing on the field. Coming to Chennai, we knew whole team needs to come to the party. At Wankhede you need one or two brilliant performances, but here it is a different ball game.”

Player of the” match, Madhwal (MI) said: “I have been practicing a lot and waiting for my opportunity. I have done engineering, cricket is my passion and I have been waiting for this since 2018.

“When we practice in the nets, the management gives us the target and we try to execute our best. Hoping to do well in the coming games and want to end up as champions. The wicket of Nicholas Pooran was most pleasing for me.”
