Faf du Plessis looked even more comfortable at the crease after Corey Anderson was given the new ball to bowl. Later Suresh Raina (54 not out) eased along with his characteristic flicks and cuts to steady the chase. David Hussey (40 not out) gave him company and ensured victory was achieved with hiccups.On this form, Chennai will hold all the aces in the upcoming knock-out games.
Earlier, opener Lendl Simmons smashed a 44-ball 67 as Mumbai Indians posted a challenging score of173 for eight. Simmons provided the ideal start to the defending champions along with Michael Hussey (39)when they were put into bat.
