Defending champions Mumbai Indians began with a flourish but the Chennai Super Kings pulled things back, in the opening fixture of the Indian Premier League on Saturday night.

The Mumbai Indians, eyeing a fifth IPL title, were given a blistering start by their openers Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock but the Chennai Super Kings brought things under control at the Zayed Cricket Stadium. The Mumbai Indians eventually finished up at 162 for 9 in their 20 overs after being inserted in by Chennai Super Kings skipper MS Dhoni.

Left-hander Saurabh Tiwary top scored for the Mumbai Indians with 42 from 31 deliveries, studded with three boundaries and a six, while South African pacer Lungi Ngidi snapped up three wickets after he was hit by de Kock earlier on.

Deepak Chahar and Ravindra Jadeja took two wickets each.
Other than Tiwary, de Kock made hay early on, knocking 33 from 20 balls with five boundaries.
