Chennai Super Kings defeat defending champions Mumbai Indians in IPL Action


Indian Premier League returned in dramatic fashion as Chennai Super Kings staged a superb fightback to defeat defending champions Mumbai Indians.

Chennai were reduced to 24-4, effectively 24-5, because of an injury to Ambati Rayudu in Dubai.

But opener Ruturaj Gaikwad batted through the innings for 88 not out from 58 balls to help them post 156-6.

Mumbai then never recovered from 37-3, closing on 136-8, to give Chennai victory by 20 runs.
