Chennai Super King's talisman Suresh Raina slammed an unbeaten 57 as the side posted a competitive total of 168. Mumbai Indians' chase fell apart once Sachin Tendulkar departed after scoring 48. When Kieron Pollard provided MI with a glimmer of hope with a 10-ball 27, M.S. Dhoni's tactical nous won the day for Super Kings.
