Welcome to commentary of the first Vivo IPL match of 2018

This match sees the Chennai Super Kings facing the Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium. These two teams are two of the best supported teams in the tournament and this should be a lot of fun

The Mumbai Indians are batting first and we have Chahar bowling the first over for Channai. Rohit Sharma and Evan Lewis are opening for Mumbai. The first three balls were all dots before Sharma crunched one for four over extra cover

Shane Watson to bowl the second over

Rohit Sharma has opened both overs now swinging for the fences and failing to make contact on five of the seven balls he has faced

The third ball of the over is skied but there is not a fielder in the area and the ball plugs for two to Sharma. Mumbai are not hanging around here!

The Mumbai team is: Rohit Sharma, Evan Lewis, Ishan Kishan, SA Yadav, HH Pandya, Kieron Pollard, KH Pandya, JJ Bumrah, Mitch McClenaghan, Mustafizur Rahman and M Markande

Edge!! but it falls short of slip and Sharma sees out the rest of the over. 7-0 off 2 overs

A muted LBW appeal because the bowler slips but the umpire has given it! and we have our first review of this season. Evan Lewis is the man out and Chahar the bowler

He hasn't hit it
