Mumbai: Mumbai Indians got their campaign back on track with a convincing eight-wicket win over table-toppers Chennai Super Kings in a one-sided encounter in Pune on Saturday.
Chasing 170 to win, Mumbai were in control all along after the openers put up 69 runs for the first wicket.

Though West Indian Evin Lewis failed to get going, Suryakumar Yadac continued his phenomenal form as he scored 44 off just 34 balls with five boundaries and one six.

Rohit Sharma, who has been criticised for batting too low down the order, came in to bat at no.3 and took the game by the scruff of the neck. He was supported by Lewis, as the two put a 59 run stand for the second wicket to take the game away from Chennai.

When Bravo finally dismissed Lewis, it was already too late. Rohit and Pandya then got together, helping Mumbai cruise home to a comfortable victory. Rohit did step on the gas later, scoring 56 off just 33 balls.
