Chennai Super Kings went hammer and tongs at Mumbai Indians bowlers in the early overs and had raced to 60 for no loss in absolutely no time at all. Just like his counterpart MS Dhoni, Rohit Sharma also turned to his spinners and for wickets and he was immediately rewarded from the wrists of the wily old hands of Harbhajan Singh. Both batsmen fell in identical fashion. First Smith went big on the leg side but only found the massive palms of Kieron Pollard.
Corey Anderson was brought back for a few more overs and Anderson’s New Zealand skipper had a taste of the fury of the burly compatriot when the ball hit his grill and broke his helmet. The double strike had certainly rocked the former champions and a bit of caution was thrown at the crease before Suresh Raina spanked to the covers for a boundary. Harbhajan continued be menacing. The wicket was turning but McCullum calmed the nerves with a colossal six over long-off.
