Mukesh Choudhary’s inclusion in the Chennai Super Kings’ playing XI raised a few eyes after the fast bowler’s lackluster performance in his first few outings. The reigning champs, on the other hand, continued to support the pacer, and the 25-year-old eventually paid them back last night against their arch-nemesis MI. Choudhary delivered poison with the new ball, dismissing both Mumbai Indians openers – Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan – for ducks in the game’s opening over.
He then went on to dismiss Dewald Brevis again in the third over, further cementing CSK’s hold on the game. The left-arm paceman concluded with figures of 3/19 in three overs as the four-time winners won by three wickets in a final-ball thriller. Mukesh Choudhary was named Player of the Match for his outstanding performance.
“I’m going to have to bowl well on the powerplay, where I’m required to bowl three overs.” There is no pressure at all; in fact, playing with such a large group of players removes all of the pressure. “All I want is to have fun and enjoy myself,” he continued.-It’s worth noting that Choudhary is stepping into the shoes of none other than Deepak Chahar, who has been CSK’s primary bowler in recent years and raked up a whopping INR 14 crore at this season’s blockbuster auction. However, due to injury concerns, CSK will be unable to use his skills in the IPL 2022. As a result, Choudhary is almost certain to have a long run and must capitalize on the chance. I just want to have fun and enjoy myself, Mukesh Choudhary said.
Needless to say, Choudhary expressed satisfaction with his performance as he walked down memory lane and recounted his tribulations. “I never saw myself playing cricket. When I was at boarding school in Pune, we had an hour-long sports time during which I participated in a variety of sports. “I tried cricket and seemed to be rather excellent at it,” the young bowler said at the post-match presentation.
