Seamer Mohit Sharma started what batsman Brendon McCullum completed, as the Chennai Super Kings trumped the Mumbai Indians in Friday's Indian Premier League fixture at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in the United Arab Emirates.

Sharma's prolific haul of four for 14 in four overs, including the key removal of the big-hitting Kieron Pollard, restricted Mumbai to a final total of 141 for seven. These outstanding figures earned the 25-year-old right-armer the Man of the Match accolade.

New Zealander McCullum then walloped a cavalier 71 not out from a mere 53 deliveries, including an octet of fours and a duo of handsome sixes. West Indian opener Dwayne Smith and South African Twenty20 International captain Faf du Plessis, meanwhile, weighed in with complementary cameos in a comfortable triumph with six deliveries to spare.

Earlier, Australians Aaron Finch and David Warner smashed quickfire half-centuries in leading the Sunrisers Hyderabad to a promising four-run success over the Delhi Daredevils, who failed despite the return of England exile Kevin Pietersen.
