The opening game of the cash rich Indian T20 League was no less than scripted movie thriller. The match was already predicted as a definite hit with the two rivals clashing. Chennai has been one of the favourites in the tournament since the very start and the main reason behind it is MS Dhoni. Dhoni’s reputation as a captain and his achievement in international cricket has made him one of the most famous cricketing celebrity over the world.

In a video posted by a twitter user we can see how the blue sea of Mumbai turned its colour to yellow as Dhoni walked in the middle.

Mumbai posted a competitive total of 165 batting first. In the second innings they even had reduced 75 for 5 in the 12th over. It was Dwayne Bravo who rose to fame guiding Chennai to a victory as the injured Kedar Jadhav added the cherry on the top handing Chennai a one wicket victory.
