Kieron Pollard came up with one of the innings of the Indian Premier League as he hit a 34-ball 87 as Mumbai Indians completed the second-highest chase in the history of the tournament, gunning down 219 against Chennai Super Kings in Match 27 in Delhi on Saturday.

Kieron Pollard hit nearly everything that was bowled at him on Saturday as he hit 8 sixes and 6 boundaries to pull off one of the most spectacular chases in the IPL. Pollard blitz made sure Mumbai completed the highest successful chase on Indian soil in the tournament.

Pollard denied singles in the final over and backed himself to get 16 and he did so in emphatic style. Faf du Plessis dropped Pollard on 68 and that proved to be the endgame for Chennai Super Kings whose 5-match winning run came to an end.

MS Dhoni, one of the sharpest minds in world cricket, looked jittery as Pollard kept hitting them out of the park at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi. With the win, Mumbai Indians retained their 4th spot on the IPL 2021 points table with 8 points from 7 matches.

Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock gave Mumbai Indians a fine start, stitching a 71-run stand in just 7.4 overs. Mumbai Indians lost quick wickets as they went from 71 for 0 to 81 for 3, losing their openers and Suryakyumar Yadav in quick succession.

However, Pollard single-handedly led their chase and helped them past the finish line. For CSK, Sam Curran delivered with the ball, picking up 3 wickets but Lungi Ngidi (0 for 62) and Sharudl Thakur (1/56) came up with ordinary performances.
