Mumbai Indians lose their spot in the IPL Final.
May 24, 2012 2:42am CST
The Mumbai Indians team suffered a defeat at the hands of a rampaging Chennai Super Kings team lead by a swashbuckling innings by their captain M.S. Dhoni.MI now face Delhi Daredevils on Saturday and if they defeat them then they go to the third spot after the 2 finalists which gives them a chance to play in the Champions Trophy later this year.Incidentally MI are last year champs of the champion Trophy but will have to qualify beating DD.In yesterday`s match their bowlers were hammered by the CSK batsmen and their batsmen once again failed to rise to the ocaission and give a fight.

I agree with peferble's comment. CSK is a lucky team. They were not performing very well in this tournament. But luckily they got into the play off. And we must say they utilized the situation very well. Specially Dhoni rose up to the situation and played an excellent innings to defeat MI. CSK is a team whho always perform well in big platform. That is why they became the champions twice. They are in the run for their Hat-trick championship. But they were not in the picture from the start, they just crawled in towards the end. Play off, is the match in which a team should play well, Mumbai lost their so All credits go to CSK and Dhoni for making the big match in their kitty. Now CSK vs Delhi will be a superb contest to watch up, hope it will a superb thriller..

This has now become a common theme at the IPL. CSK somehow manage to scrape through to the knockouts. Then in crucial matches they simply seem to come into form. They simply play out of their skins to win the important matches. They have done it with so much regularity that this is a regular theme. Cheers! Ram

Was quiet surprised by Chennai Super Kings batting, it was up and down, but they managed to give a good score of 187 but Mumbai Indians only managed 149, I thought Mumbai Indians will win the match before the match started. Now lets see Chennai Super Kings can beat Delhi Daredevils in the 2nd Qualifying Match to reach the finals ..
