Moises Henriques starred with bat and ball to help the Sydney Sixers open their Champions League Twenty20 campaign with a 14-run victory over the Chennai Super Kings in Centurion.
Henriques top-scored with an unbeaten 49 off 23 balls as Sydney made an imposing 185 for five batting first and he then claimed three for 23 off three overs as Indian Premier League superpowers Chennai were limited to 171 for nine in reply.
Among Henriques' victims were India internationals Suresh Raina, who had threatened to take his side home before being dismissed for 57, and Mahendra Singh Dhoni (eight) in the same over as the Chennai run chase suffered a setback it could not recover from.
An unbeaten century stand between Neil McKenzie and Quinton de Kock secured an entertaining eight-wicket win for Highveld Lions against defending champions Mumbai Indians.
Mumbai had set their opponents a target of 158 to win and that total looked beyond them in the early stages with runs hard to come by.
But McKenzie (68 not out) and De Kock (51no) both steered the Lions to victory with seven balls to spare.
