Mumbai Indians v Chennai Super Kings at Cape Town

MI v CSS, Match 1: Man of the Match Sachin crushes Dhoni's Chennai

Sachin Tendulkar hit an unbeaten half-century as he led the Mumbai Indians to a 19-run win against the Chennai Super Kings in the opening match of the Indian Premier League at Newlands on Saturday.
Tendulkar's 59 not out provided the foundation for Mumbai's 165 for seven after they were sent in on a blustery, grey day. Former Australian opening batsman Matthew Hayden hit 44 and captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni 36 for Chennai but the 2008 runners-up could only manage 146 for seven.
Sri Lankan fast bowler Lasith Malinga bowled superbly to take three for 15 in four overs for Mumbai.
MI v CSS, Match 1: Mumbai Indians 165-7 (20 ovs) beat Chennai Super Kings 146-7 (20 ovs) by 19 runs
