    Chennai Super Kings rode on a strong show by the bowlers to hand a 20-run defeat to defending champions Mumbai Indians in the first match of UAE leg of IPL 2021.

  • Mumbai's chase started on a good note with Quinton de Kock collecting two boundaries off Josh Hazlewood in the second over. Though Ruturaj Gaikwad dropped him on six, de Kock couldn't make most of the reprieve, trapped in front of stumps by a Deepak Chahar incoming delivery.

  • Kieron Pollard and Saurabh Tiwary thumped some boundaries in their 29-run partnership. But Hazlewood struck Pollard past the flick on the back pad with a sharp inswinger that stayed low. In the next over, Krunal Pandya went for a non-existent single and tried to come back with a desperate dive but fell short of crease.

  • Gaikwad opened up in the middle overs with an eye-catchy loft followed by a reverse sweep while Jadeja made use of width to cut past third man. Gaikwad, dropped at 19, reached his sixth half-century in IPL with a pull through mid-wicket off Pollard before slamming him flat over long-on. Jasprit Bumrah, playing his 100th IPL match, ended the partnership with an off-cutter which Jadeja (26) sliced to Pollard at long-off.

  • Bravo's lofted drive over extra cover off Milne began late fireworks for Chennai. Boult's last over was smashed for 24 runs with Gaikwad hitting a four and six while Bravo smacked two sixes on both sides of the wicket. Though Bumrah brought an end to Bravo's cameo, Gaikwad's cover drive followed by a slog sweep over backward square leg on the final ball ensured Chennai ended their innings on a high.
