Smith, Rahane propel Supergiant to victory

However, after the game turned in the favour of Rising Pune Supergiant with Smith hitting two sixes in a tense finish with Dhoni being at the non-striker's end, Harsh Goenka's tweet irked the Indian fans who panned him on Twitter.

On the other hand, Hardik Pandya hit one boundary and four sixes in his knock to post 15-ball 35 runs.

RPS secured the services of Ben Stokes, who became the highest paid foreign player in the history of the tournament.

He may have ended proceedings on the losing side in Australia Test series with India last month, but Steve Smith began his 2017 Indian Premier League campaign as a victor. Both spinners Adam Zampa and World T20 No 1 spinner Imran Tahir are part of the playing XI.

Smith and Rahane stitched 58 runs for the second wicket from seven overs to lay the foundation for the run chase. He was out for 60 off 34, to a diving catch by Nitish Rana at deep square leg. Smith was on 25. RPS will be lead by Steven Smith, who replaced MS Dhoni referring to the way that the side had completed seventh in its lady crusade. Dinda had been costly in his opening burst of two overs and Smith's decision to toss the ball to the Bengal fast bowler backfired as he gave away 28 runs in the last over for MI to set an asking rate in excess of nine runs an over.

The Mumbai Indians innings was up and down, with Jos Buttler getting them off to a splendid start, before Imran Tahir's spell threatened to break it all down, only for Pollard and Hardik Pandya to go slam-bang in style right at the end.

After the strategic time-out, Pune skipper Smith introduced veteran all-rounder Rajat Bhatia, who responded well by taking a simple return catch to pack Ambati Rayudu (10) before dismissing Krunal Pandya (3) cheaply. After his dismissal, Kieron Pollard took on Tahir in his second spell of two overs and even as he appeared to be set for his usual onslaught, Mayank Agarwal pulled off - what has to be the first spectacular catch of IPL 10.

Hardik Pandya then stunned the home crowd as he scored four sixes and a boundary to take 30 runs from the final over bowled by Ashok Dinda.
