Ruturaj Gaikwad hit a fine half-century to lead Chennai Super Kings to a 20-run win over defending champions Mumbai Indians in the first match of the second phase of the Indian Premier League here on Sunday.
CSK were 44 for 4 at half-way mark after a horrendous start but Gaikwad rescued the side with his blistering unbeaten knock of 88 runs, along with Ravindra Jadeja (26) and Dwayne Barvo, who scored 23.
Chasing 157, Mumbai Indians could manage only 136 for 8 in their chase.
Deepak Chahar removed both MI openers — Quinton de Kock (17) and Anmolpreet Singh (16) — while Shardul Thakur and Dwayne Bravo (3/25) rocked the MI middle order.
Earlier, CSK skipper MS Dhoni won the toss and opted to bat against defending champions Mumbai Indians, who are being led by Kieron Pollard in the absence of regular skipper Rohit Sharma, as second leg of 14th edition of Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) begins at Dubai International Stadium today. Dashing all-rounder Hardik Pandya is also missing the game for MI, making the way for Anmolpreet Singh’s debut.
On Rohit’s absence, Pollard said, “He is okay, we will see him sooner rather than later. He is the captain of this ship. I am just standing in.”
