Scorer: @Cricket_Lama | Commentator: Deivarayan Muthu

12am What a start to the season. What a grand return for CSK. Hope you enjoyed our coverage as much as we did bringing it to you. Varun Shetty's report will tell you the full story of the night. This is Deivarayan Muthu saying phew.

Afsar: "Loving Dhoni at Presentation!! CSK da!! Thala da"

11.55pm Chants of CSK! CSK! CSK! ring around the Wankhede. What a grand return to the IPL for CSK. They were barely alive when they needed 47 off 18 balls. Bravo then smashed three sixes in five balls to give his side hope. Bumrah had him holing out off the very next ball, and Mustafizur started the last over with three dots, but Jadhav held his nerve to finish it off with back-to-back boundaries. That he did so with an injured hamstring was special. Bravo had also produced a special performance with the ball, conceding only 11 runs in his last three overs in the death.

Mahesh Balaji: "It's that yellow jersey. Those CSK colors bring back the magic. Fitting start to the tournament. Coming back to the IPL after being suspended. Coming back in the match after being almost defeated. We are back. We are truly back. Go CSK. ROAAARRRR!!!"

Vivek Rajan: "Guys....This is what experience brings to you....Go CSK..."

Firoz Dhanani: "No matter how hard they try Mumbai just can't get off to a winning start"

Sudhakar Somasu: "Hope the 2 cents guy now knows the worth of CSK..."

11.50pm Rohit Sharma: Not feeling good at the moment. We have to give the credit to Bravo. We tried to get the yorker but we couldn't get it. We need to improve our execution. We were in the game till the 17th over. Anyway, good learning for all of us. With the dew coming it, it was difficult for the bowlers. We felt we were 10-15 runs short.

Kedar Jadhav: I am happy psychologically, but physically I am hurt. I might not play for the next couple of weeks. Bravo gave us the opportunity for us to give a shot at it. I could not run and I told Immy [Imran Tahir] I will take all six balls. With six balls and seven runs, they were bowling same lengths and I just needed a big hit. I had to see how my body was reacting.

Dhoni: CSK v Mumbai is one game everyone wants to watch and we are coming back after two years. Overall, the spectators have been very good.The way Bravo batted it was really good to see him take the responsibility. We could have batted better. I would take plenty of positives out of the game. The mix of players we have got will be more horses for courses. We will have to keep our eye on injury-prone players. I feel keeping things simple is important.

Bravo, Man of the Match: It was a great victory and we dedicate it to the CSK fans. CSK showed a lot of faith is me. I came in early and I gave myself my best opportunity to bat. It gave me time to get myself set. It is a small outfield and I back my skills and I am just happy with my effort tonight.

Mustafizur Rahman to Jadhav, FOUR runs, CSK mark their return with a stunning win! Overpitched and outside off, Mustafizur loses his length, Jadhav leans back, uses the depth of the crease, and belts it through the covers. Cracking finish from Bravo and Jadhav

Mustafizur Rahman to Jadhav, SIX runs, Jadhav shovels it all the way over short fine leg for a six. WHAT A CRAZY SHOT. Jadhav, you beauty. He shuffles across off, drops down to one knee - injured hamstring and all - and ramps it all the way to the boundary. He might not have ventured this shot had fine leg been back. Is this the game? Tahir runs across from the other end and hugs Jadhav

Bumrah to Bravo, OUT, Bumrah stays round the wicket but shifts his length. Bumrah ventures shorter and wider outside off, Bravo loses his timing and his head. He splices a catch to Rohit at extra cover. Bravo was aiming for the signature loft over extra cover but it got big on him
