IPL 2019 Qualifier 1, MI vs CSK Live Cricket Match Score Online: Mumbai Indians booked their place in the IPL 2019 final following a six wicket win over Chennai Super Kings with Suryakumar Yadav playing the key role in the 132 run chase. On a surface where batsmen struggled, he remained calm and played without fuss in an unbeaten 71 run knock. (MI vs CSK Full scorecard)

MI had endured a poor start with Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock falling cheaply. Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan built things thereafter with 80 run partnership.

Earlier, batting first, Chennai Super Kings posted 131/4 following a 66-run partnership between MS Dhoni and Ambati Rayudu for the fifth wicket. They provided the acceleration late on that CSK needed following another miserable start.

They lost Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina and Shane Watson inside the powerplay overs to stand at 32/3 after the six overs. The surface has proven to be a difficult one to navigate with the ball spinning viciously.

MS Dhoni speaks

CSK skipper MS Dhoni comes up for a chat: "Somebody has to lose, things really didn't go our way, especially batting. At home, we had to assess the conditions, we have played 6 to 7 games already, that's the home advantage.. We needed to know how the pitch behaves, would it be tacky? Those were the things we didn't do well. These are the best batsmen we have got, it looks like we are are batting well, but at times, they pull off shots that shouldn't be played. These are the players who we have banked on, they have the experience and they should know to assess the conditions better. I think we were a bit unlucky at times, some balls dropped right in the middle, we perhaps had to bowl slightly away from the batsmen. It isn't good to lose games at such times, but it is good that we finished in the top-two, that gives us another chance in Vizag."

Mumbai Indians are through to the IPL 2019 final! Suryakumar plays it into the leg side region for a simple single. MI win by 6 wickets with nine balls to spare

Six needed from 12 balls

FOUR! Suryakumar Yadav with a boundary off Deepak Chahar. Plenty of use of the wirst to play it behind for a boundary

22:53 (IST)07 May 2019

Jeers from some sections of the crowd as Faf du Plessis misjudges a chance to get rid of Hardik Pandya. Looked more a case of being unable to cut down the distance from the boundary rope as he moved forward. Pandya with the slog and it lands in no man's land in the end. Double collected. 

22:41 (IST)07 May 2019

Golden duck for Krunal Pandya! Imran Tahir looked convinced that it was caught-bowled. Umpires weren't as convinced but the soft signal is out. Played back by Pandya and it gets the toe end of the bat. MI are 101/4

22:38 (IST)07 May 2019

Imran Tahir gets rid of Ishan Kishan for 28 from 31 balls. Beaten by the pace. Kishan looked to come down the track but Tahir bowls a quicker one. It skids off the surface and rattles the off stump. Much needed wicket for CSK. MI are 101/3

22:37 (IST)07 May 2019

Suryakumar Yadav brings up his fifty from 37 balls. Imran Tahir into the attack and SKY plays it towards third man for a boundary. Harbhajan is pushed and tested once again. Considers another dive but decides against it

22:34 (IST)07 May 2019

Suryakumar Yadav with brilliant batting to steer a spinner from Ravindra Jadeja towards third man. Was on top of that delivery and read it perfectly. Their partnership now reaches 71 runs - the highest in the match. MI now need 40 from 42 balls

22:26 (IST)07 May 2019
50-run stand

Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav have steadied things for Mumbai Indians. They have a 50-run stand now for the third wicket. 

EQUATION: MI need 63 from 60 balls

22:11 (IST)07 May 2019
After powerplay

MI are 44/2 after the powerplay overs. CSK were 32/3 at the same stage in their inning. Chennai need a wicket and soon.

22:03 (IST)07 May 2019

This one is much more like it. Nothing wrong with this shot. Sits down on one leg and sweps it for a six towards deep mid-wicket. Classy shot that. 

22:02 (IST)07 May 2019

Ishan Kishan dances down the track but has an ugly go at a looped up delivery by Harbhajan Singh. Looks for a big hit but is nowhere near the pitch of the ball or read the ball well, went for the heave, gets a thick outside edge which beats Watson at first slip and runs away for a boundary

21:59 (IST)07 May 2019

Consecutive boundaries for Suryakumar Yadav off Deepak Chahar. First one he gets the line all wrong and Suryakumar plays it towards fine leg for a boundary. Next ball, it is DROPPED! Half pull and Vijay, at mid-on, doesn't get around enough to hold on. Gets through his palms and runs away for a boundary. 11 runs from the over

21:52 (IST)07 May 2019

Poor shot from Quinton de Kock! Creates room to Harbhajan Singh and looks to go inside-out. But he doesn't get the distance to it and Faf du Plessis runs around to complete the catch at long off. He's gone for 8 from 12 and MI are 21/2

21:48 (IST)07 May 2019

QDK with an awkward looking sweep off Chahar and a four down to fine-leg. Good adjustment though! The loss of Rohit Sharma's wicket does not seem to have any big impact right now as Mumbai continues to motor along. MI- 20/1, 3 ovs

21:37 (IST)07 May 2019

Rohit reviews the decision and it's umpire's call on height! Matter of a few cms but Chahar has given the perfect start for CSK. Excellent thinking seam bowling by Chahar as he manages to get the perfect outswing and trap Sharma right in front. Not the start MI would have wished for. Rohit is gone for 4. MI- 4/1

21:34 (IST)07 May 2019
MI begin with a bang

Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock are at the crease. Rohit is on strike. Chahar will open the attack.FOUUURRR! Rohit Sharma gets it past the inner ring on the off side. Delightful stroke. MI are up and running!
