Chennai Superstars 124 for 1 (Vignesh 61) beat Mumbai Champs 123 (Kumaran 4-14) by nine wickets

Mumbai Champs turned in yet another disappointing performance to allow Chennai Superstars to register a facile win at Panchkula in Chandigarh. T Kumaran grabbed a four-wicket haul to restrict Champs to 123, a total that was never going to threaten the Superstars, who romped home by nine wickets with 44 balls to spare.

G Vignesh chose the occasion to equal Chris Cairns' tournament record for the fastest fifty with a 17-ball effort and picked up the Man-of-the-Match award.

Kumaran struck in the fifth over to dismiss the opener Saman Jayantha, after which wickets continued to fall at regular intervals. That Dhiraj Jhadav's 28 was the highest score of the innings reflects the Champs' woes.

The chase was over in a hurry after Vignesh exploded at the start with a 30-ball 61 that featured eight hits to the boundary and three over it. Michael Kasprowicz had a forgettable day, leaking 20 runs in his solitary over. Ian Harvey remained unbeaten on a 30-ball 31, while R Sathish hastened the end with a 17-ball 29.
