Mumbai Indians Lands Safely In CLT20 Finals

Somerset was beaten by Mumbai Indians in the Champions League’s 2nd semifinal (CLT20). Earlier Bangalore’s Royal Challengers were the first to launch their landing in finals by winning in the 1st semi final. Mumbai, having so many of its players out of tournament due to one reason or the other was never a hot contender for a berth in finals. But they have managed to do so with a graceful victory in the semis against Somerset. The match was played in Chennai’s Chidambaram Stadium.

MI played first and made a challenging score of 161. Somerset played well with the help of a superb innings from Craig Kieswetter who made 62. It was Lasith Malinga from MI who dominated on Somerset batsmen with his dangerous and magical spells. He took 4 wickets for just 20 runs. And all the 4 wickets he took were by shocking the batsmen with a clean bowl.

James Hildreth was the other batsman from Somerset who made 39 and added an amazing 83 with Kieswetter but could not become the savior for their team to sail them into the finals.
