Chennai Super Kings (CSK) announced their comeback in style. The men in yellow won the first game of IPL 2018 against Mumbai Indians (MI) by one wicket. The game was a perfect kick-off to the eleventh edition of IPL.
Fans couldn't ask for more as the Chennai star Dwayne Bravo won the game for CSK scoring a 30-ball 68.
Chasing 166, the two times IPL champions couldn't get off to a good start and lost their top and middle order very early. Except for Bravo and little support by Kedar Jadhav, no one stood for them.
Eventually, CSK reached the target in a last over thriller. It was Jadhav who scored the winnings runs, despite coming back from an injury. A happy Bravo dedicated this victory to the Chennai fans, who waited eagerly for two years to see the 'Men in Yellow' return to action.
"It was a great team effort. Want to dedicate this win to CSK fans. They waited so long for this moment. I'm happy. CSK have shown a lot of faith in me. Wanted to give myself the best opportunity to start well. Here at Wankhede, once you bat deep, chances are you'll win the game. Just happy with the win tonight," Bravo said at the post-match presentation ceremony.
Bravo, who took away game from defending champions, celebrated the win and shared the video on his Instagram account. The ever chilled Trinidadian wrote, 'RunDWorld this dance ah go take over @chennaiipl great start for the men in yellow #Champion #RunDWorld!!!!!!'
