Toss- Won by CSK, decides to bowl first

Mumbai Indians have collapsed from 92 to 2 to set up a target of 163 runs for Chennai Super Kings in the first match of IPL 2020.

MS Dhoni won the toss and elected to bowl first. Dwyane Bravo was left out of the playing XI due to a niggle which gave Sam Curran the opportunity for his CSK debut. Similarly, Rohit Sharma left Nathan Coulter Nile from the team due to fitness issues and picked James Pattinson and Trent Boult for their MI debuts.

Rohit Sharma started the innings with a boundary and Mumbai Indians raced to 46 in 4 overs. However, they lost both openers in successive overs to end the powerplay at 51 for 2. Surya Kumar Yadav and Sourabh Tiwary kept the scoreboard ticking until 11th over to set Mumbai nicely for the onslaught.

CSK made a comeback from there as Yadav failed to clear the fence. Hardik Pandya came and hit consecutive sixes to Ravindra Jadeja. Tiwary also took on Ngidi but Faf Du Plessis took two brilliant catches at log on to dismiss him and Pandya. Krunal Pandya also fell to Ngidi before the death over started.

Kieron Pollard also could not capitalize on a good start and Mumbai were left to finish with tail-enders. Ngidi and Chahar finished up well and restricted Mumbai to 162.
