Brief summary:

So a match that was believed to be a clash of the titans proved to be a one-sided affair as Mumbai bowlers once again fired as a unit. After the first innings, everyone predicted that 140 would be a cakewalk for the mighty Chennai Super Kings. But that’s not how things panned out as Johnson got his side off to a terrific start after Pollard dropped Hussey off three consecutive deliveries in his first over. Johnson picked three wickets in his second over and the turned the tide in his team’s favour. Since there on, the other bowlers joined the party and decimated the two-time IPL winners.

====================================================================================

CSK innings:

Over 15.2 || Score 79/10

Ojha into his third over. Laughlin took a single off the first ball. Jadeja launched the second ball high on the leg side and Rayudu took another easy catch at deep square leg. So this is the lowest total for CSK in IPL history and Mumbai Indians have comprehensively won the match by 60 runs.

Jadeja clobbers the next ball towards deep midwicket, Pollard runs to his left, takes the catch and then spills it at the last moment.

Tendulkar and Smith to open for Mumbai, Jadeja will bowl the first over. Jadeja bowled three dot balls on the trot and Smith got off the mark with a single on the leg-side.

====================================================================================

TOSS: Rohit Sharma has won the toss and Mumbai will bat first.

Two changes for CSK: Ben Laughlin and Murali Vijay replace Albie Morkel and Wriddhiman Saha.

One change for MI: Dhawal Kulkarni misses the game and left-arm seamer Pawan Suval comes into the side.

====================================================================================

Mumbai are yet to lose a match on their home ground this season and the fact that they have won all their matches against Chennai at their home ground is something that could inspire them to deliver their best once again. Dwayne Smith has done an excellent job as an opener after the team management decided to drop Ponting as the skipper. Ojha and Harbhajan have both been in good form and only if Lasith Malinga can find his mojo back, Mumbai will have an extremely potent bowling attack. Rohit Sharma has so far done an excellent job as a skipper and his batting has significantly improved with after the new role. Tendulkar has had an average IPL so far and he would be desperate to score a big one in front of the home crowd.

Chennai have played like champions all throughout this season and there is no reason why they can’t register their first victory at the Wankhede Stadium. Michael Hussey has done an excellent job as an opener and it took him some time, but even Suresh Raina has been amongst the runs as he slammed his first IPL ton against Kings XI Punjab in their previous match. The only concern for CSK should be an opening partner for Hussey who can regularly lay a solid platform along with the Australian. Saha replaced Vijay for three matches but he too hasn’t been able to play a big knock. Apart from that, none of the Chennai pacers have picked wickets on a regular basis of late and the team has to rely on Dwayne Bravo’s medium pace for some wickets. Now that he is the Windies skipper, a rejuvenated Bravo can once again come up with a formidable show.
