Earlier, Mumbai Indians bowlers made most of the slowness of the MA Chidambaran track defending a total of 155/4, made largely owing to skipper Rohit Sharma s 48-ball 67.

Hardik Pandya once again played a crucial knock in the death overs with 23 off 18 balls before the bowlers, lead by Lasith Malinga (4/37), ran through the fickle CSK batting line-up, devoid of Faf du Plessis and MS Dhoni.

Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja missed out due to fever while du Plessis was forced to be benched to keep the foreign players quota in balance.

In chase of what seemed like a below par target, CSK found themselves in all sorts of trouble losing three wickets in the Powerplay overs and things continued to go downward for the table toppers as they lost four more wickets in 10 overs, adding just 49 runs from overs six to 16.

Brief Scores: Mumbai Indians 155/4 (Rohit Sharma 67, Evin Lewis 32; Mitchell Santner 2/13) vs beat Chennai Super Kings 109 (Murali Vijay 38, Mitchell Santner 22; Lasith Malinga 4/37) by 46 runs
