During the first match of the 11th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings at Mumbai, Chennai Super Kings sank further in their chase as Mumbai Indians kept chipping in with wickets at regular intervals.

After being put in to bat by Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Mumbai Indians scored 165-4 in their allotted quota of 20 overs. Chennai Super Kings never really looked convincing enough to chase the total. Their innings comprised of low run rate and the increasing number of wickets.

Their hopes were further hit when Kedar Jadhav had to walk off the park after retiring hurt. It happened in the 13th over when Jadhav pulled up a hamstring, only to be landing in the dressing room while he was batting on 14.

Markande made a stellar debut against Chennai Super Kings.

On the ultimate delivery of the same over, Deepak Chahar tried to play the big shot against Mayank Markande, but failed to even make contact with the ball. Resultant of which, he ended up being stumped by Ishan Kishan. Chahar didn’t even open his account.

Markande, who made his IPL debut tonight, impressed one and all with both his variations and composure. He ended up with bowling figures of 4-0-23-3.

Post this over, Chennai Super Kings were reduced to 84-6 in 13 overs. Chasing the target of 166 seemed a far-fetched reality for them.
