Mumbai wins the Inaugural IPL match beating CSK







Pin It



Mumbai Indians stormed the Chennai Super Kings in the inaugural Indian Premier League (IPL) match of season 5.

Suffering its first IPL defeat at home since April 15, 2010, CSK went down by eight wickets after collapsing from 75 for two to 112 all out. Chasing a modest 113-run target, Levi put on 69 runs for the opening wicket with Sachin Tendulkar (16 retired hurt) to set up the run chase perfectly for the Mumbai.

Tendulkar smashed a six and a four in his 15-ball knock before a bouncer from Bollinger hit him on the glove. Mumbai’s only worry will be Sachin’s injury as the master blaster left the field with an injured finger as Chennai bounced back with two quick Mumbai Indians wickets but it turned out to be too little too late.

Levi had done enough for his team to earn the Man of the Match award.
