Mohit And McCullum Keeps MI At Bay


MI was expected to do a lot better than what they have till now in this season of the Indian Premier League, but then they were playing against CSK one of the most strongest sides of IPL. MI did only one thing right and that is to bat first after winning the toss. But then they could not post a big total and with only Corey Anderson and Rohit Sharma could come to the party their fate was almost sealed. Mohit Sharma was bowling well, in particular and got four wickets in the end. CSK’s powerhouse opening pair gave them fantastic start and despite loosing Smith and Raina quickly CSK did not make any mistake and won the game comfortably.
