I'm not really bothered (about where I'm batting) because I'm hitting the ball really well. We also lost some key batsmen early but its a small ground, the ball travels a lot here, there was some dew, not a lot. The openers played sensibly and then Rohit finished it off well with some sumtuous hitting.

Pune: Defending champions Mumbai Indians made heavy weather of the run chase but held their nerves in the end to beat table-toppers Chennai Super Kings by eight wickets and return to winning ways in the Indian Premier League, here on Saturday.

Bravo landed 11 of those before the ice cool Dhoni launched the final six in what was a record for maximums in an IPL match to seal the most dramatic of wins and put the Super Kings top of the table. Mumbai Indians desperately need to arrest the momentum, which is now with CSK.

Chennai Super Kings are rocking the IPL so far. When you want to win games like this, all three departments have to come collectively. Mumbai batters have struggled in the tournament, barring Suryakumar Yadav. Both the skipper and Kieron Pollard hve failed to fire in five of the six games. Against Chahal, Royal Challengers Bangalore's gun bowler, though, Dhoni adopted a more measured approach and scored seven off seven.

Mitchell McClenaghan begins the proceedings for Mumbai Indians. When one performed exceedingly well, he lacked support from the other end.

But others like "death overs" specialist Jasprit Bumrah and Bangladesh pacer Mustafizur Rahman have not lived up to the expectations. "There's no reason to think Mumbai Indians can't do the same as well, given the talent they have", CSK bowling coach Eric Simmons said ahead of a practice session on Friday. But Mumbai didn't make much changes to their playing XI as they got the right combination in the initial stage only but they didn't perform.

The Italian giants said they were forced to sell Salah to Liverpool last summer under financial pressure from UEFA . We scored these goals, we could have scored more. "He is in outstandingly good shape".

Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the former India captain once again showed that age is just a number for him.

In the 12th over, Krunal dismissed the unsafe Rayudu when he tried to clear the ropes with a sweep shot but ended up hitting straight to Cutting at deep midwicket.

While Rayudu has amassed 283 runs from six games, averaging 47.16, Dhoni and Watson have accumulated 209 and 191 runs respectively. One of the main criticisms against them is their tendency to rely on the big names in their batting order.

While Thakur has eight wickets from five games, Chahar has six wickets from as many games.

Despite being overshadowed by his senior partner, the southpaw brought up his half century in style, tonking Shane Watson for a six over deep mid-wicket.
