In Saturday’s ‘T20 Podcast with Ayaz Memon’, we talk about Chennai’s big win over Mumbai in the tournament opener.

An MS Dhoni masterclass in strategising was front and centre of the T20 tournament-opener as Chennai outclasses Mumbai by 5 wickets in Abu Dhabi on Saturday night.

Mumbai were put into bat first by MS Dhoni, who was playing his first match in over 400 days, and Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock got the team a solid start posting 45/0 in 4 overs. Piyush Chawla got MS Dhoni the big break, sending back Rohit on 12. Mumbai’s middle order steading things but two sharp catches by Faf du Plessis near the boundary line got Mumbai spiralling from 121/3 in 14 overs to 162/9 in 20.

In reply, Chennai lost opener Shane Watson and Murali Vijay early and were reduced to 6/2 in 2 overs but a solid 115-run partnership between Faf du Plessis and Ambati Rayudu got the team close to the finish line. Jadeja and Sam Curran added runs to the board but it was eventually MS Dhoni out in the middle as the winnings runs were scored by Faf du Plessis.

Listen in as cricket expert Ayaz Memon takes us through the big moments of the T20 season-opener in Episode 1 of The T20 Podcast.
