Mustafizur Rahman was the pick of the bowlers for Chennai. He picked four wickets for 29 runs on his debut for Chennai. Rachin Ravindra emerged as the highest run-scorer for Chennai and made 37 runs off 15 deliveries. Chennai reached the target of 174 runs in 18.4 overs with six wickets in hand. Mustafizur won the Player of the Match award.

Gujarat faced Mumbai in their first game of the season, where Mumbai won the toss and elected to bowl. Gujarat scored 168 runs for the loss of six wickets in 20 overs. Sai Sudharsan made 45 runs off 39 deliveries and was the highest scorer for the team. Mumbai could make only 162 runs for the loss of nine wickets at the end of the 20th over. Gujarat won the match by six runs and Sai won the Player of the Match award.
