The IPL 2020 got off to a superb start as MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings beat Mumbai Indians by 5-wickets in the opening game in Abu Dhabi on Saturday.

Chennai Super Kings had lost their last five matches against Mumbai Indians (four in 2019, one in 2018) but started off the 2020 campaign with a win against defending champions as Faf du Plessis and Ambati Rayudu hit half-centuries while Sam Curran played a crucial cameo.

In typical fashion the Men in Yellow seemed intent on making it as difficult as possible for themselves, leaving it until late to get the winner with four balls to spare.

Twitter, as you would expect, exploded after a phenomenal game of cricket. Here are the best tweets:

MS Dhoni, was there ever any doubt CSK fans?

 Chalking up another milestone.

 

Dhoni sporting Suriya’s iconic Singam moustache?

 

MS Dhoni's new moustache is far too powerful that could inspire such heated Internet reactions.

 

 

 

Meanwhile, Harbhajan doing what he does best – composing poems in Tamil 

 

 

Redemption Day for Rayudu!

 

Fantabulous FAF

 

Faf du Plessis took two spectacular catches to dismiss Hardik Pandya and Saurabh Tiwary also had played a fantastic knock before riding their team to an empathic victory.

 

 

Curran’s commendable cameo

 

CSK’s emphatic opening day victory saw a number of players make a big statement – and Sam Curran was definitely one of those to make a major impression. Rayudu and Du Plessis were brilliant but Sam Curran's cameo, in the end, was the difference.

 

  

 

Thankfully, some had fun as well:
