 News Cover: Chennai Super Kings beat Mumbai Indians by five wickets in the first match of IPL Season 13, with an impressive batting from Ambati Raidu and Faf du Plessis. 

Ambati Raidu and du Plessis were the major contributors to the chennai side. du Plessis was not out for 55 off 44 balls. After Ambati Raidu was out, when it seemed that the Chennai team would come in front of Jasprit Bumrah, Duplasi held one end and returned to the pavilion by wining the team. 

At one point, the contest was quite tense for Chennai, but Dhoni again took a surprise decision when he sent english young all-rounder Sam Curran in his place. Then Chennai needed 29 runs to win in three overs, and at that time Sam Curran scored 18 off 2 sixes off 6 balls to ensure that chennai would win the match from here and soon du Plessis sealed it.

Raidu's brilliant innings

Ambati Rayud will be remembered. Failed to impress the selectors for the 2019 World Cup. But the discussion was more of his tweet than that. In which he wrote, he has ordered three dimensional glasses.

In fact, the selectors had said at the team selection press conference that vijay Shankar, who played three dimensional cricket, has been selected in place of Ambati Raidu. Then he retired.

The same Ambati Raidu emerged as the star in the first match from Chennai. He scored 71 off 48 balls with the help of six fours and three sixes. His innings eased Chennai's victory.

Raidu and Duplasi shared 115 runs in 14 overs for the third wicket.

Chennai's bad start

Earlier, Chennai had a very bad start. Shane Watson was out for four in the first over. Murali Vijay had returned to the pavilion with just one run. After losing two wickets for six runs in two overs, Ambati Raidu and du Plessis beat Chennai to victory.

Rohit Sharma was brilliant with a four off the first ball. With Quinton de Kock, Rohit added 45 runs in the first four overs. But the first turning point of the match came in the fifth over. When Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock returned to the pavilion.

Rohit Sharma was caught in Piyush Chawla's turn and played in the air at mid-off while Quinton Dekock was sent to the pavilion by Sam Karan.
