The 2018 edition of the Indian Premier League got off to an enthralling fashion, as defending champions Mumbai Indians took on the returning unit of the Chennai Super Kings.

Amidst an ocean of emotions with crowd favourites, Chennai Super Kings marking their return to the tournament, it was an entertaining batting display from the hosts at the Wankhede Stadium which stood out.

Electing to bowl first upon winning the toss, skipper MS Dhoni opted for a three-spin attack, as Harbhajan Singh, Imran Tahir and Ravindra Jadeja did well in the middle overs. The men in yellow had the upper hand in the first half of the innings, as danger men Rohit Sharma and Ewin Lewis were sent back with low scores to their name.

The surprise package came in the form of the young Ishan Kishan, as India’s skipper of 2016 Under 19 World Cup played an enterprising knock of 40 off just 29 deliveries. He was well supported by Suryakumar Yadav, as his knock of 43 was critical too.

However, the flurry came in the end, as the Pandya brothers finished off in style to get Mumbai to 165 for four in 20 overs. Krunal Pandya played a priceless knock of 41 off just 21 deliveries, as his stand with younger brother Hardik was instrumental in getting Mumbai to a decent total.

Fans on Twitter reacted throughout the innings and below are some of the tweets.
