It was a one-sided affair at Sharjah on Friday as Mumbai Indians defeated Chennai Super Kings by 10 wickets to go top of the table. MI held CSK to 114/9 in 20 overs — it could’ve been worse as CSK were reduced to 43/7 at one stage of the innings — and then chased the target down inside 13 overs.
This was CSK’s 8th loss of the season as the side remains at the bottom of the table.
This is how Twitter reacted to the game at Sharjah:
#CSK are looking like an ageing boxer in the ring against younger fighters who are throwing more punches than he can handle….

Seriously missing those words.😔
“IPL is the tournament where 7 teams play against each other to face CSK in playoffs”

If there is one positive for CSK in this season then it will be Sam Curran.

I have a lifetime membership of CSK. So no question of supporting any other team even if they change the whole squad, each and every player. Just hurts so bad to see such bad cricket.

Mumbai Indians don’t just beat CSK, they humiliate them.
