Due to a short circuit at the Wankhede Stadium, DRS facility was not available till the first 10 balls of Chennai’s innings, which hurt their team as some decisions went against them in the meantime.

Robin Uthappa was also given out leg before Jasprit Bumrah in the next over and even then there was a possibility of the batsman’s survival.
Fleming told reporters after the match, “It was a bit unfortunate that this happened at that time. We were a little disappointed, but that’s also part of the game. At that time some decisions did not go in our favor. It was definitely not a good start for us.
Chennai’s chances of reaching the playoffs also ended with a five-wicket loss at the hands of Mumbai. Fleming, however, wants to look at the positive aspects. Fleming said, “There were some really positive aspects to us. The bowling of Mukesh (Chowdhary) and Simarjeet (Singh) with the new ball was excellent. So, with the return of Deepak Chahar, we will have some good options to bowl with the new ball.
“We didn’t play as well as we should have,” he said. Now that we are out of the competition, we can try other players in the remaining two matches.
