Openers Rahul (60 not out off 52) and Mayank Agarwal (25 off 20) shared a 53-run stand before the skipper got support from (43 not out off 35).

The win was Punjab's second in five games while Mumbai suffered their third loss in five matches.

Rahul began by hitting for a couple of boundaries and played the anchor's role to perfection. Gayle's knock, comprising five fours and two sixes, was equally important in the context of the run chase.

Rahul fittingly finished the game with a straight six and a four towards third man off

Earlier, Mumbai struggled to 21 for one in the first six overs, the lowest powerplay score this season after being put in to bat.

A 79-run stand between Rohit and Suryakumar Yadav (33 off 27) steadied the ship for the five-time champions but they could not find the final flourish, managing only 34 runs in the last five overs for the loss of four wickets.

As has been the case so far at Chepauk, batsmen found it extremely difficult to get going early in the innings on a slow pitch.
