Chennai Super Kings beat Mumbai Indians by just six runs to secure a second straight win in the Indian Premier League on Wednesday. It was Mumbai's second successive defeat.

Matthew Hayden smashed 81(46 balls,12x4,2x6), 21 years old Suresh Raina's 53 came from 36 balls (3x4,3x6) and skipper MS Dhoni's quick 16 balls 30 helped the Chennai Super Kings to reach 208/5 in their 20 overs.

Robin Uthappa's initial blast of 43 and a late burst from Abhishek Nayar (45 not out from 20) took the Mumbai Indians close to the total , but ultimately its the Supers King side who took the victory honor.
