IPL2 1st Match Result - Mumbai Indians beat Chennai by 19 runs

Mumbai Indians got winning start of the 2009 Indian Premier League - IPL, after they won the 1st match by 19 runs against last years runner-up Chennai Super Kings on Saturday, 18th April, 2009 at Cape Town. Mumbai Indians scored 165/7 while Chennai Super Kings made 146/7 in 20 overs.

Sachin Tendulkar hit an unbeaten half-century as he led the Mumbai Indians to a 19-run win against the Chennai Super Kings in the opening match of the Indian Premier League at Newlands on Saturday.

Tendulkar's 59 not out provided the foundation for Mumbai's 165 for seven after they were sent in on a blustery, grey day.

Former Australian opening batsman Matthew Hayden hit 44 and captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni 36 for Chennai but the 2008 runners-up could only manage 146 for seven.
Sri Lankan fast bowler Lasith Malinga bowled superbly to take three for 15 in four overs for Mumbai.

Mumbai's innings was anchored by Tendulkar, who largely played conventional cricket, punctuated by lofted off-drives.

Although he opened the batting he faced only 48 balls, hitting seven fours.
Tendulkar and Sri Lanka's Sanath Jayasuriya (26) put on 39 for the first wicket. He then shared a second wicket stand of 43 with Shikhar Dhawan (22).

Batting conditions were tricky under grey skies and Mumbai were struggling at 102 for four in the 15th over before the left-handed Abhishek Nayar lashed 35 off 14 balls in a fifth wicket stand of 46 with Tendulkar.

Nayar slammed three sixes in an over from Andrew Flintoff which cost 22 runs. Flintoff, who is on a 1.55-million dollar a season contract, was the most expensive Chennai bowler, conceding 44 runs in four overs.

Flintoff made 24 in Chennai's reply as he helped Hayden put on 52 for the third wicket. He hit two fours and a six off 22 balls before he heaved a ball from Harbhajan Singh high in the air for the off-spinner to take a catch off his own bowling.

Hayden hit his 44 off 35 balls before Zaheer Khan took a stinging catch in the cover off a fierce drive against Jayasuriya's left-arm spin. Dhoni hit 36 off 26 balls before being bowled by Malinga in the final over.

Match Summary:
Mumbai Indians - 165/7 in 20 overs.
Chennai Super Kings - 146/6 in 20 Overs.
Toss - Chennai Super Kings, who chose to field first.
Man of the Match - Sachin Tendulkar (Mumbai Indians)
Result - Mumbai Indians won by 19 runs.

McCullum replaces Ganguly as Kolkata captain

Ever since the Kolkata Knight Riders’ coach and Director of cricket operation of KKR John Buchanan proposed an experiment with multiple captains, the team has been shrouded in controversy. Buchanan seemed keen on trying out an all new strategy of having rotating captaincy to a team.

This move comes as a big disappointment to Sourav Ganguly who led the Kolkata Knight Riders through the first season of the IPL. Although they didn’t do very well last year losing 8 of the 14 games they played, Shahrukh and Ganguly’s fans at home had faith in his performance as a team leader. This decision is bound to kick up the dust among his fans, who are already protesting Buchanan’s decision. Ganguly however insists that as a professional, he will give his best to the team at whatever position he is.

On the other hand, McCullum who played only four matches in the first season is slated to be free to play for the whole of the second season of IPL. Last year McCullum gave KKR a blazing start, if he maintains that level of performance this year, he might prove to be an invaluable asset to the team as captain.
