IPL 2020 Highligths, MI vs CSK Match, Full cricket score: Faf du Plessis fifty guides Chennai to win

23:54 (IST)

That brings us to the close of the opening game of the 2020 Indian Premier League, with three-time champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) out-performing four-time winners and current title-holders Mumbai Indians in all departments to not only collect their first points, but to end their five-match losing run against their fierce rivals. The action now moves to Dubai, where young captains Shreyas Iyer of Delhi Capitals and KL Rahul of Kings XI Punjab lock horns in the second match of the tournament.

For now, it’s time for us to bid you all good night! The IPL’s back in action, and how!

23:51 (IST)

MS Dhoni, CSK captain: How you assess the condition is what matters. We took time to see what is the good length to bowl. MI openers batted well. Overall, plenty of positives. But there are areas to improve, If you don't lose wickets in first few overs, you have an upper hand. Rayudu was brilliant. Overall very happy with the performance, yes, it can get better. 

Experience pays off. I feel it matters that you have the right mix, experience with young ones. Experience is needed to guide the players as well. 

That was one thing (Curran coming ahead) we have not done. At some point of time, we need to give Sam and Jadeja a chance up the order and this was an ideal occasion. 

It is an amazing job being done by every one in IPL, especially the ones behind the scene. At times as cricketers, we criticise a lot of stuff, but we must appreciate this effort.

23:49 (IST)

Ambati Rayudu is the Player of the Match for his 48-ball 71!

Rayudu: (On lockdown training) We were training, and little bit stop-start training in summer. Really eager. (Conditions) It was good. Once the dew came on, it quickened up a bit. We practised in Chennai and Dubai as well, and that really helped,

23:30 (IST)

Sam Curran: Great start from the guys. Really excited to come to Chennai. Did not have much time to think about my game too much. Very surprised to go ahead of him but great win in the end.

Rohit Sharma, MI captain: We didn’t carry on like Du Plessis and Rayudu did, which is probably why we were 15-20 runs short in the end. We should’ve carried on from there. Credit to the CSK bowlers, kept us guessing on all the time. Still early days, but we’ve got to give credit to CSK. We all want to start really well, it’s very very crucial in this tournament. Gives you the momentum to get the balance right. Hopefully we can go back and rectify our mistakes, and come out smarter next game. It was completely different from what we were used to, but I think IPL did a great job to ensure there was some noise around the stadium. We’ve got to understand and adapt to the pitches. The pitch got really wetter towards the end, with the dew coming in later on. It’s all about understanding what one needs to do, something we failed to do today.

23:24 (IST)

After 19.2 overs, CSK 166/5 (du Plessis 58, Dhoni 0)


Boult bowls a total of two deliveries in the final over, conceding a boundary off both as Faf du Plessis finishes off in style for CSK, helping them win the tournament opener by five wickets. Dhoni remains unbeaten on 0 at the other end, and he’ll be real pleased with the way the others in the team, especially Faf and Rayudu stood up after the team got off to the worst possible start.

FOUR! Fa du Plessis hits the winning runs and remains unbeaten on 58 as Chennai Super Kings snap their five-match losing run against Mumbai Indians while becoming the first team to collect points in IPL 2020 with a five-wicket victory. CSK 166/5

23:20 (IST)
four

FOUR! First ball of the final over, and Boult bowls a real loosener as Faf heaves the full, wide delivery over backward point for a boundary. Scores level now! CSK 162/5

23:18 (IST)

After 19 overs, CSK 158/5 (du Plessis 50, Dhoni 0)


Curran heaves the ball over midwicket for a maximum off the first delivery, but is dismissed next ball while attempting a scoop over fine leg. Du Plessis however, continues to make merry as he collects a boundary and a single off the next two balls to complete his 13th IPL fifty. Dhoni’s adjudged caught-behind first ball he faces, but manages to reverse it after going for the review straight away. Dot off the last ball. CSK need five to win from the last six balls with five wickets in hand.

IPL 2020 LIVE SCORE, Mumbai Indians vs Chennai Super Kings latest updates: After a long delay, the new season of Indian Premier League (IPL) will start on Friday when defending champions and four-time winners Mumbai Indians take on three-time title champions Chennai Super Kings at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.

Two of IPL's most successful teams will aim to start on a winning note straightaway with Rohit Sharma's Mumbai holding a slight edge over MS Dhoni's Chennai. CSK will be without Suresh Raina - a key member who left the squad due to personal reasons and will not participate in this season's tournament. After Raina's departure, two cricketers from the CSK squad – Deepak Chahar and Ruturaj Gaikwad – along with other staff members tested positive for COVID-19 as soon as they team landed in UAE.

The off-field issues may have put slight pressure on Dhoni and the rest, a team that depends on the experience of international players.

Mumbai, on the other hand, will miss Lasith Malinga's services this season. He has been a consistent performer for the team and performed the role of a match-winner over many years. While CSK's bowling is their biggest advantage, Mumbai's strong point is their batting. In the spin department, Chennai look to have an upper hand while Mumbai's pacers, led by the sensational Jasprit Bumrah, will hope to cause damage.

Not much is known about the pitch conditions in Abu Dhabi, but if it's on the slower side, Chennai's spinners will likely play a crucial role.

Mumbai Indians full squad: Rohit Sharma, Sherfane Rutherford, Suryakumar Yadav, Anmolpreet Singh, Chris Lynn, Saurabh Tiwary, Dhawal Kulkarni, Jasprit Bumrah, Mitchell McClenaghan, Rahul Chahar, Trent Boult, Mohsin Khan, Prince Balwant Rai Singh, Digvijay Deshmukh, Hardik Pandya, Jayant Yadav, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Anukul Roy, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Ishan Kishan, Quinton de Kock, Aditya Tare, James Pattinson.

Chennai Super Kings full squad: MS Dhoni, Imran Tahir, Lungi Ngidi, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shane Watson, Ambati Rayudu, Murali Vijay, Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Deepak Chahar, Piyush Chawla, N Jagadeesan, Mitchell Santner, KM Asif, Shardul Thakur, R Sai Kishore, Faf du Plessis, Monu Kumar, Dwayne Bravo, Josh Hazlewood, Sam Curran, Karn Sharma.

Right, that will be it. Huge appeal for LBW by Bumrah, he bowled it full and straight. Zampa departs. That also means that India have won by 13 runs. They will take some positives from this game into the T20I series and have avoided a clean sweep in the ODI series, the scoreline reading 2-1.
