The IPL opener was played between Chennai Super Kings led by its new skipper Ravindra Jadeja and Kolkata Knight Riders, who made Shreyas Iyer their captain. The match was not a closely contested one as KKR emerged victorious in a match which was a repeat of 2021 finals. However, the match saw the best of Umesh Yadav in a few years in IPL as he consistently clocked over 140+ km/hr and moved the ball away from the batsman with his sharp swing. He managed to pick two wickets and gave away just 20 runs in his course of 4 overs.
Interestingly, the match also marked the return of MS Dhoni to IPL and the veteran glovesman started slow but after he got his eye in, it was all for him with the bat to offer. He provided the final over flourish to take Chennai to a total of 131 runs which looked impossible at one time of the innings. Meanwhile, he also completed his quickfire half century of just 38 balls which included 7 fours and 1 blazing six.
Dhoni rolled the eyeballs of the fans towards him but it was the mystery girl who was spotted during the game at Wankhede stadium in Mumbai. The cameraman spotted the mystery girl and soon she became talking point on the social media. Some twitter users also trolled the cameraman for capturing the lady in the frame.
