Batting first against the Chennai Super Kings, Mumbai Indians have just managed xx runs for the loss of two wickets at the end of six overs in this crucial IPL 2014 encounter at Dubai. Mumbai have already lost both their openers.


Having won the toss and elected to bat first, Mumbai Indians were dealt an early blow when they lost opener Michael Hussey in the second over. Hussey was bowled by a peach of a delivery from Ben Hilfenhaus. It pitched on middle stump, and took the off bail.


Chennai started the innings with Ishwar Pandey. He gave away just two runs from the first over. In the second over, Aditya Tare greeted Hilfenhaus into the attack with two glorious boundaries through the offside. But then Hilfenhaus got his revenge by picking the wicket of Hussey.


Hussey’s dismissal saw a change in the batting order of Mumbai as they promoted Corey Anderson to No 3. On the other end, Tare continued his assault as he struck Pandey for two more glorious fours in the third over.


MS Dhoni didn’t waste any time in introducing Ravichandran Ashwin into the attack, as the off-spinner came on to bowl the fourth over of the innings. The offie started off well, conceding just a couple of runs from his first over. Dhoni has shuffled his bowlers so far, as he introduced Mohit Sharma into the attack for the fifth over. Mohit instantly reaped him the rewards as he got the prized wicket of Tare. The right hander tried to slog him over mid-on, but ended up giving an easy catch to Suresh Raina.


The fall of the second wicket has brought the Mumbai captain, Rohit Sharma to the centre.
