After opting to bat first, CSK posted a competitive total of 156/6 with the help of Ruturaj Gaikwad's classy knock of 88 runs from 58 deliveries. Initially, CSK were struggling at 24/4 at the end of 6 overs, with Rayudu also getting injured they were almost 5 down but Jadeja and Gaikwad's impressive 81 run partnership put CSK in a decent position. While, Bravo's cameo in the end helped helped them cross 150 runs in the 1st innings.

While chasing the target, Mumbai Indians kept losing wickets at regular intervals and were never in the hunt despite Saurabh Tiwary's fifty run knock. Deepak Chahar's sensational spell in Power-play ensured that MI were on back-foot from the beginning. Mumbai never recovered from the early setbacks. Dwayne Bravo finished with bowling figures of 3/25 was the pick of the bowlers along with Deepak Chahar.
