23:24 (IST)19 Sep 2021
Chennai win by 20 runs

Chennai Super Kings beat Mumbai Indians in the first IPL 2021 match in UAE. What a turnaround this games has been, remember at one stage CSK were 7-3 but then made an amazing recovery to script a 20-run win. Chennai scored 39 runs in the last two overs. Mumbai needed the same in the last 2. This shows how even a couple of good overs can decide the fate of the game.

23:19 (IST)19 Sep 2021
MI fall apart at the end

Dwayne Bravo has picks up two wickets in the last over. Adam Milne and Rahul Chahar. So no dramatic ending in this game. Meanwhile, Saurabh Tiwary has reached his fifty. Just a formality now...

23:15 (IST)19 Sep 2021

A big hit from the willow of Saurabh Tiwary and could not have come at a better time. MI- 133/6 after 19 overs. MI need 24 off the final over. Can Saurabh Tiwary take his team over the line? 

23:11 (IST)19 Sep 2021
Dhoni drops a catch

Saurabh Tiwary goes for the scoop and gets a leading-edge. Bravo, at short fine leg was gearing up for it but Dhoni comes in at the last minute and goes for it! And he drops! MI -118/6 after 18 ovs

23:09 (IST)19 Sep 2021
Deepak Chahar injured

Deepak Chahar has done some damage to his left calf, pulling out of his run-up. Anyway, some leg-shaking and some of Raina's massaging allows him to continue, even without the physio. The equation: 49 runs | 18 balls.

22:59 (IST)19 Sep 2021
Krunal Pandya Run Out! 

Poor call between the two southpaws as Krunal played one towards the mid-wicket region and was down the pitch but there was no single there. Tiwary is slow and doesn't even try. Bravo with a quick throw and Dhoni whips the bails. Time-out. The equation: 60 runs | 30 balls. 

22:54 (IST)19 Sep 2021
Lbw! Pollard falls

Hazlewood has caught Pollard plumb in front. The big man went for the review but its a hopeless call. Three reds. Pollard is gone for 15(14). Mumbai Indians have won 10 of their last 11 chases(with 1 tie) in the IPL, Chennai Super Kings look primed to end that unbeaten streak here.

22:52 (IST)19 Sep 2021

Virat Kohli will step down as RCB's skipper at the end of this season. He has stolen the limelight tonight for sure!

22:29 (IST)19 Sep 2021
SIX! Over mid-wicket

Pollard power is here! And he hammers Jadeja for a six! More of a mishit but the ball has landed over long-on. 13 runs from the 11th over. MI- 75/4 and need 82 more to win. Pollard vs CSK will be an interesting contest and maybe the final one that needs to be won to secure this win.

22:21 (IST)19 Sep 2021
OUT! Bravo picks I Kishan

Ishan finds the fielder at short cover against Bravo and he is disappointed. He knows he should not have played that uppish shot on the off. The fielder was placed right there for that shot. Alas! He has fallen into that trap. Superb field placement from MSD. MI- 58/4

22:18 (IST)19 Sep 2021
Time Out!

Six singles in the ninth over from Moeen Ali before the time-out! MI- 54/3 after 9 overs. Kieron Pollard, sitting in the dugout, can be seen biting his nails. Remember he averages 42.61 and scores at 10.51 rpo against Chennai Super Kings in his IPL career. When will he come out to bat?

CSK vs MI: The emotional rollercoaster
22:05 (IST)19 Sep 2021
WICKET! S Yadav is gone

This time it is Shardul Thakur who gets into the act and enters his name in the wickets column. Suryakumar Yadav didn't get enough pace to play the lofted shot and is caught by Du Plessis. He has to depart for 3 off 7 deliveries! CSK lost three wickets in their PowerPlay. In response MI after 6 overs are 41/3, as they chase 157 to win

22:00 (IST)19 Sep 2021
BOWLED! Knuckle ball knock him over

Deepak Chahar cleans up Anmolpreet Singh and what a wonderful piece of deception with the knuckle ball. Anmolpreet had no clue about it and was into his shot quite early. He has to depart for 16 after getting a good start. MI - 35/2 after 5 ovs

21:57 (IST)19 Sep 2021
SIXX! First one for MI

4-6-4 !!! Anmolpreet Singh is on fire! A swipe across the line and Anmolpreet gets his first maximum of the match. Anmolpreet Singh, on debut, hits Josh Hazlewood for 14 off the over! This quite a start. MI - 34/1 after 4 overs

21:49 (IST)19 Sep 2021
LBW! DRS comes into play!

The Dhoni Review System has come alive! Dhoni spot on with that review and Quinton de Kock has to walk back to the pavilion. MI- 20/1 after 3 ovs


21:46 (IST)19 Sep 2021

Gaikwad is the culprit!  That was a tough chance but you need to take those at this level. QDK gets a life as Gaikwad spills a chance on the dive. And adding insult to injury smashes a boundary of the next ball. Hazlewood isn't happy. MI- 14/0 after 2 overs

21:43 (IST)19 Sep 2021
Watch: In case you missed it!

A Shot of Highest Quality from Ruturaj Gaikwad

21:41 (IST)19 Sep 2021
MI begin run chase

Anmolpreet Singh opens with Quinton de Kock. Chahar will open the attack for CSK and its a quiet start with just two runs of the first over.

A total of 29 IPL matches were played before its suspension. (File)

The restart of the Indian Premier League (IPL) doesn’t feel like a restart at all. It does not feel like the second half of a tournament of two (forced) halves. But like a different tournament altogether, an un-hyped sequel, a related but different product altogether, without the narrative arcs of catharsis and escapism that had prefaced the prequel.

The first part is a hazy memory, made to look more distant by the intervening sport-filled five months. In this span, India lost the one-off World Test Championship final, reset and prevailed in a nail-biting Test series in England, and if you veer away from cricket, clasped their first-ever Olympic gold medal in athletics. The time-lapse of 144 days looks longer than it is. (Read Full Preview)
