New Delhi: Although it wasn’t the Master Blaster’s day — he scored a measly 12 runs in his IPL debut — his team walked away with the honours on home turf, beating Chennai Superkings by a huge 9-wicket margin.
Chennai had their moments of brilliance with S. Badrinath hammering 53 off 32 balls with seven fours and two sixes, while skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni made an unbeaten 43 in 35 balls with six fours and a six.
Mumbai Indians’ nine-wicket win is their biggest victory-margin in the IPL. Of the eight matches played by Mumbai, they have won four and lost four. Chennai have won six and lost four of 10 matches.
