23:06 IST: WICKET! Malinga's toe-crushing yorker knocks off Faf du Plessis for 11 but the Super Kings are coasting towards a big win; they need only 40 off 46 balls as Dhoni joins Raina in the middle.
23:03 IST: SIX! The nightmare is not yet over for Mumbai. After McCullum and Smith destroyed them, Raina has come out all guns blazing and even clobbered Harbhajan into the stands. CSK 143/2 in 12 overs, chasing 184 to win.
22:46 IST: Smith and McCullum were blazing away before Harbhajan Singh answered his captain's call with two wickets in the eighth over - the off-spinner first removed McCullum for 46 and then knocked off Smith (62). CSK however are still dominating, having reached 115/2 in 8 overs.
22:35 IST: Coach Ricky Ponting had a quick chat with the Mumbai Indians players in the strategic timeout. CSK have gone off to an explosive start and they need only 94 in the 14 overs left. All their wickets are intact and MI need a miracle here.

Smith hammered a quickfire fifty as CSK raced away in chase of 184


22:32 IST: Fifty for Smith, his 11th in the IPL and the West Indian got there off only 22 balls. Super Kings reach 90/0 in 6 overs, chasing 184 vs Mumbai Indians.
22:30 IST: A moment for huge concern for the Mumbai Indians; Rohit Sharma tried to stop a boundary but jammed his shoulders on the advertising boards. Sachin Tendulkar looked concerned but the MI skipper was soon back on his feet.
22:22 IST: Malinga has gone for 33 runs off his two overs as Mccullum and Smith cause mayhem. Chennai Super Kings reach 50/0 in 4 overs, chasing 184.
22:16 IST: McCullum is taking Lasith Malinga apart. The Kiwi skipper has been merciless since the World Cup and today he has lived up to his form again as the Super Kings chase 184 to win. His opening partner Dwayne Smith is also charged up.
Brendon McCullum CSKvsMI IPL
McCullum started in fifth gear for the Super Kings in chase of 184.


22:10 IST: McCullum on fire for the Chennai Super Kings as they reach 18/0 in 2 overs, chasing a stiff 184 vs Mumbai Indians.
21:44 IST: Eventful last over, like most of the innings. Bravo picked up Rayudu (29) and Pollard (64) off successive balls but could not take a hattrick. Mumbai Indians finished with 183/7 in their 20 overs.
21:38 IST: SIX! Rayudu has also joined the party - he clobbered Mohit Sharma for a massive one into the stands. Mumbai Indians have recovered brilliantly from 12/3 to reach 175/5 in 19 overs
21:26 IST: Fifty for Pollard, his eighth in IPL and second on the trot. Mumbai Indians are 151/5 in 16.5 overs vs Chennai Super Kings.
21:23 IST: Rayudu has come out to join Pollard in the middle and Mumbai are headed to a big total now. Chennai's bowlers are coming under a rare onslaught here but kudos to Harbhajan for setting the platform here.
21:15 IST:Rohit Sharma slams 23rd fifty off 30 balls. That was brilliant counterattack from the Mumbai Indians skipper but he perished soon after to Ashish Nehra. MI 132/5 in 15 overs.
Kieron Pollard MIvsCSK IPL
Pollard smashed Jadeja for 26 runs in 14 overs.


21:08 IST: SIX! Pollard smashed it for a big one. This is blistering stuff from Mumbai Indians. Pollard smashed Jadeja for 26 runs as Mumbai Indians reached 124/4 in 14 overs vs the Chennai Super Kings
20:48 IST: WICKET! That's the end of that. Harbhajan was trying a brave recovery but Mohit Sharma ended his resistance for 24 as Mumbai Indians slip to 57/4 in the 10th over. Rohit Sharma need to play a stellar knock now.
20:44 IST: SIX! Harbhajan Singh is on fire; he clobbered Jadeja for a huge one as Mumbai Indians reach 50 in the 9th over. This is a desperate phase for the Mumbai Indians. Chennai Super Kings are tightening their grip on the match every minute.
Rohit Harbhajan Sinngh IPL MI
Rohit and Harbhajan added 45 runs for the fourth wicket.


20:36 IST: This could be an interesting passage of play now; Harbhajan had smashed a breathtaking fifty in his previous match and obviously the MI thinktank decided to send him earlier to give him more opportunities. Rohit on the other hand, is due for a big one after scoring 98 and two ducks in the first three matches.
20:29 IST: Rohit Sharma has finally walked in to bat at last. And he has started off rather well. But the Mumbai skipper needs to dig his team out of a real rut here and he has the feisty Harbhajan Singh for company.

20:19 IST: WICKET! Nehra takes another one as Lendl Simmons perishes for 5. Mumbai Indians 12/3 in the fourth over - this is disaster. Harbhajan Singh has walked in to bat at No. 4. Still no Rohit Sharma.
Ashish Nehra wickets CSK vs MI
Nehra rocked Mumbai with two early wickets.


20:14 IST: WICKET! Wow, sensational catch by Faf du Plessis; the wicket goes to Nehra but that was completely owed to the brilliant South African. And Corey Anderson is the man to go for 4. MI 6/2 in the third over.
20:10 IST: Kieron Pollard had said there would be a change in strategy by Mumbai Indians. They have clearly done that. Parthiv Patel opened with Lendl Simmons, while the hard-hitting Corey Anderson was sent up at No.3 despite an early loss.�
20:04 IST: WICKET! Nehra draws first blood for the Super Kings; removes Parthiv Patel for first-ball duck. Mumbai Indians are 2/1 in 1 over after electing to bat.
19:46 IST: Sachin Tendulkar was seen imparting seam-up lessons to Mumbai Indians seamer Pawan Suyal - the last time he spent time with Harbhajan Singh and he picked up some key wickets and was miserly.
19:42 IST: Playing XI:
Mumbai Indians: LMP Simmons, PA Patel (WK), RG Sharma (Captain), AT Rayudu, CJ Anderson, KA Pollard, Harbhajan Singh, J Suchith, R Vinay Kumar, SL Malinga, P Suyal
