A struggling Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma won the toss and opted to field against a strong Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in an Indian Premier League (IPL) match at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium here on Saturday. For all overseas batsmen who have played each of their side's games as specialist batsmen, Pollard has come into to bat with the least number of balls remaining. He started off with a huge six off the bowling of Krunal Pandya.

Just when CSK added another 15 runs, Chahal got the better off Ravindra Jadeja (3) in the ninth over to put the visitors on tremendous pressure.

Lewis, who was quite till then, changed gears in the next over hitting two sixes and scoring 16 runs off Imran Tahir. "Dhoni is looking in really good touch, he's hitting the ball really well this IPL but not great to see it against us". Rayudu was unfortunate to be run out after a superb innings of 82 which took his within sight of victory before Dhoni - as ever - finished things off in style. With two team's who have fared completely different fortunes this season, the match is predicted to be a walk in the park for runaway leaders Chennai Super Kings. With an ageing side, CSK were not expected to replicate their past magic but they have done exactly the opposite as their match at the No.1 spot continues.

The kind of cricket they have played is not portrayed properly by their position in the points table as all the matches they have lost were last over thrillers. They have won just one match so far, and are coming off a crushing 31-run loss to Hyderabad after failing to chase down 119 in their own backyard four nights ago.

For Mumbai, to survive in the tournament, this is a must-win encounter. McClenaghan then returned to remove Dhoni, who ended up giving an easy catch to Lewis at deep cover as CSK slipped to 143/3 in 17.1 overs.

For RCB, Chahal was the pick of the bowlers bagging two wickets for 26 runs while spinner Pawan Negi and Yadav scalped a wicket each.

Batting first, RCB notched up a competitive 205 for eight riding on Ad de Villiers 30-ball 68 and Quinton de Kock's 53, but CSK chased down the target with two balls to spare.

Interesting face off: Raina/Dhoni vs Bumrah: Bumrah has dismissed Dhoni thrice in 27 balls, conceding just 34 runs. One ball later, newman Dwayne Bravo was also sent packing with Markande taking the catch at point.

Defending champions Mumbai Indians, who have got off to a awful start to IPL 2018, will be facing Chennai Super Kings in a rematch of the first game of the competition in the return fixture.
