Chennai Super Kings won the opening match of the Indian Premier League 2020 by a comfortable margin. The men in yellow put an end to a 5-match losing streak against their arch rivals Mumbai Indians.

Actually, Mumbai started the second innings on an excellent note by picking up 2 wickets for 6 runs but Rayudu and Faf du Plessis played quite well under pressure and won thei game for CSK.

Notably, Mumbai’s fielding was surprisingly poor as they dropped a couple of catches and gave away around 10 runs due to midfields. This came back to haunt them.

Also, Mumbai ended the first inning on a dull note by giving away wickets towards the end. They were at least 20 runs short on a belter of a wicket. These two mistakes cost Mumbai dearly as the Rohit-led side are yet to find the rhythm.

Delhi will be taking on Punjab in tomorrow’s match.
