IPL 2023: England Duo’s Absence Sees Chennai Super Kings Claim Victory Over Mumbai Indians

by admin

The Mumbai Indians team captain, Rohit Sharma, said Jofra Archer was not playing as an ‘extra precaution’. The Indian Premier League had a match between the Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings, where the Chennai Super Kings won by seven wickets. That match didn’t see England’s Ben Stokes or Jofra Archer show up to play.

Chennai’s team leader, MS Dhoni, said Stokes was hurt during the toss; however he didn’t explain what kind of injury it was. Also, Mumbai decided to rest their fast bowler Archer just to be on the safe side.

In the end, Chennai won the match by seven wickets.

Later in the game, Rajasthan beat Delhi and Buttler from Rajasthan played an amazing game contributing to their victory.

Mumbai had begun batting well but then suddenly fell from 64-1 to 76-5 due to Ravindra Jadeja who took 3 wicket falls. Despite this setback they still managed a score of 157-8 in 20 overs and started off well with balling by getting rid of Devon Conway in the first over.

India’s Ajinkya Rahane scored 61 runs from 27 balls to help Chennai win the game. All-rounder Stokes is not likely to bowl much as he is managing a sore knee and has also had bad luck with his batting, scoring low numbers in both of his innings so far. He will soon leave the IPL to join England’s Test team for their summer series against Ireland first before the Ashes tournament begins.

Mumbai’s team captain, Rohit Sharma, said that the fast bowler Archer was not playing as a precaution, but instead doing exercises like running and throwing during the warm-up.

Archer, who is 28 years old, just recently came back to international cricket in January after struggling with elbow and back injuries for 22 months.

He is only playing white-ball cricket for now, but he hopes to be able to join the test matches someday soon – most likely in time for the Ashes series.

Moeen Ali was supposed to play in Mumbai’s first cricket game against Royal Challengers Bangalore, but he got sick and couldn’t go. Instead, another bowler went but didn’t get any wickets – he gave up 33 runs during his four overs.
