Thrilling win for Lions

JOHANNESBURG: Highveld Lions clinched a humdinger by nine runs in the opening match of the Champions League on Friday. Chasing 187, Mumbai Indians finished at 177 for six.

Sachin Tendulkar (69 off 42 balls) and Shikhar Dhawan (32) had a crucial 83-run opening partnership in 9.5 overs. However, Dhawan fell on the reverse sweep and Ambati Rayudu was soon run out. Tendulkar and Jean-Paul Duminy put the innings back on course before the former was castled by Burger.

The big-hitting Kieron Pollard cut loose against Burger with two sixes and a boundary in the 17th over, before the paceman had the final say with a yorker. Not much later, Duminy was held in the deep as Mumbai Indians lost the plot.

Earlier, Jonathan Vandiar took his time to settle but was ruthless with his cuts and pulls in the latter stages of his innings. In fact, his last 56 runs arrived in only 26 balls.

The left-hander's 48-ball 71 provided substance to the Lions after the side was inserted to bat. Neil McKenzie contributed an unbeaten 30-ball 56, which had seven fours and a six.
