The UAE leg of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 began with a cracker of a contest between defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on Sunday in Dubai. MS Dhoni’s CSK registered a stunning 20-run win over MI to claim the top spot on the points table with 12 points and a net run rate of +1.223. 

Opener Ruturaj Gaikwad slammed an unbeaten 88 off 58 balls while DJ Bravo’s quick cameo – 23 off 8 deliveries, helped CSK post 156 for 6 after a horrific top-order collapse. In reply, MI managed to post 136 for 8 in 20 overs.

With this win CSK have dethroned Delhi Capitals to take the first position. Although both teams has equal number of points – 12 – but Dhoni & Co moved up due to a better and positive net run rate. While DC are placed second, Royal Challengers Bangalore are third with 10 points from seven games. MI are placed fourth with four wins and as many losses.
