The first game will see Punjab taking on Delhi in Mohali at 1600 IST and then Kolkata will lock horns with Bangalore at 2000 IST. Join us for all the action from those games, till then cheers!
Man of the Match, Dwayne Bravo, thanks God for his knock. He says it was a good team effort and dedicates the victory to all the Chennai fans. He continues saying that he batted well and is happy about it. He adds further that he came in early and got set which helped him construct well. States that he has been working on his batting a lot in the nets. Informs that at Wankhede if you bat deep, there are high chances of you winning the game. Ends by saying that he backed himself towards the end and it all went good.
MS Dhoni, the winning skipper is down with Sanjay Manjrekar for a chat. On being asked about the crowd, he says that the fans have missed the Mumbai-Chennai contest and hence the turnout has been great. He reckons their aim was to not lose the game by a big margin as it affects the run rate towards the end. Credits Bravo for his innings and for the responsibility he shouldered. Adds by saying that it was not a good batting display as a team and would look to rectify in the upcoming games. Ends by saying that they will look to keep things simple, mix-up the playing XI according to the conditions and keep an eye on the players who are injury prone.
Michael Clarke now has a small talk with the injured Kedar Jadhav. The batter says that he is psychologically happy but physically hurt. He then goes on to say that he doesn't know if he'll be fit for the next couple of games or not. He too gives credit to Bravo as he brought them close to the total. States that he had told his skipper he will bat all the balls. On the six in the last over, he comments that he waited for one bad ball and then played his shot. Is happy to come out on top in the end.
Rohit Sharma, the Mumbai skipper states that he is not feeling good and gives credit to Bravo for the way he played. He adds that they have to take positives from this game and move forward. He continues saying that it got difficult towards the end because of the dew which made it tough for the bowlers to grip the ball. He reckons that they were 10-15 runs short with the bat and they didn't execute their plans well to win the game. Admits that they were in the game till the 17th over but it drifted away from them in the last three. Smirks and says it's not the end of the world and they will come out good in the next game.
So, Mumbai begin their season with a loss yet again. Something they are making a habit of. Today they batted well and then bowled really well to have Chennai on the mat. Hardik Pandya dented the top order and then the young sensation - Mayank Markande turned things around by running through the middle order. They were on top for almost the whole of the game before a certain Dwayne Bravo struck them and then an injured Kedar Jadhav made sure that Chennai snatch a win from the jaws of defeat. Michael Clarke is there with Rohit Sharma for a chat...
It was all going Mumbai's way before Bravo unleashed. He first took on the big Kiwi, Mitchell McClenaghan and then smashed one of the best bowlers in this format - Jasprit Bumrah in the second last over for 20 runs to evoke life back in this contest. However, he fell on the last ball of the penultimate over, leaving his side needing 7 off the final 6 balls. There was another twist in the tale as Kedar Jadhav, who retired hurt due to a hamstring issue, walked out with tons of pressure on his shoulders. He played out the first three balls for a dot and then paddled one over fine leg to make sure his side can't lose from there. He then finished things off with a boundary to beat the defending champs in their own den, something that's not easy by any means.
If this is a sign of things to come, then ladies and gentlemen, gear up as season 11 has kicked off in a rollicking manner. Chennai have come back roaring to announce that their 2-year hiatus hasn't done any bad to them. A come-from-behind-win and they need to thank Dwayne Bravo for it. His side was down and out when they lost 8 wickets for 118 runs and had a mountain to climb.
Mustafizur Rahman to Kedar Jadhav, FOUR, FOUR! And Kedar Jadhav does it for Chennai. A bad hamstring? What? It doesn't matter. He's taken his side through.

Fuller ball, angled across, Jadhav brings his bat down like a hammer and drills it all along the carpet through the gap at covers to finish things off in style. CHENNAI WIN BY 1 WICKET!
1 needed from 2 balls. Everyone inside the circle. Is Super Over on the cards? Or will Jadhav finish it with a glory hit?
