Mitchell Starc has bowled a marvellous first over which saw him beat Dwayne Smith‘s outside edge four times before bowling a perfect in-swinging yorker to disturb the stumps.

Suresh Raina has now come out to the crease and CSK will already be a little wary in light of the recent dip in form after an astounding start to their campaign. It will be interesting to see how Brendon McCullum approaches the innings. LIVE Scorecard: CSK vs RCB Match 37, IPL 2015

Earlier CSK won the toss and elected to bat first. Ravichandran Ashwin continues to be sidelined so as to give time for recovery to the little finger on his left hand.
