Dwayne Bravo exhibited his batting skills to perfection as Chennai attained a dream comeback in the Indian T20 League with a last over one-wicket victory against defending champions Mumbai. It was Bravo’s power-packed 68 off 30 balls inclusive of seven sixes and three fours that turned tables in his sides favour.

Mumbai batting first scored 165 for 4, thanks to knocks from Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav and Krunal Pandya. Krunal’s late blitz helped the home side cross the 150-run mark.
