Chennai Super Kings couldn’t have asked for a better return to the IPL. They snatched victory from the jaws of defeat against the reigning champions Mumbai Indians at their own den with a stunning one-wicket win in the IPL 2018 opener. Chasing 166, the visitors scampered home with a ball to spare and had Dwayne Bravo to thank for playing an IPL classic, when all hope looked lost.
Chennai Super Kings could have scripted their comeback to IPL better. Mumbai Indians could have made a more (un)usual start to their defence of the IPL title. On their return to the Indian Premier League, Chennai Super Kings showed the diehard spirit of champions.
They head to their home next to take on Kolkata Knight Riders in front of a packed home crowd at the MA Chidambaram Stadium on April 10.
