The Chennai Super Kings started their winning campaign in the IPL 6 after losing the first match to Mumbai Indians, as they scored a comprehensive 10-wicket victory over the Kings XI Punjab last night.

Chasing a victory target of 139, Chennai openers made a mockery of KXIP bowling attack by adding the required runs in 17.2 overs and helping the team win the match by 10 wickets. Vijay remained unbeaten on 50, while Mike Hussey remained not out on 86. Hussey was declared ‘Man of the Match’.
