A fine all-round effort from West Indies cricketer Dwayne Bravo was among the highlights of a four- wicket win by Chennai Super Kings over Titans in their opening match of the Champions League T20 here on Sunday.

Bravo grabbed two wickets to help contain Titans runs flow and returned to share an exciting half century fourth-wicket stand to boost the Super Kings run chase.

The South African side held the momentum at one stage after an impressive knock of 77 from AB de Villiers carried them to 185 for 5.

However, a second-wicket partnership of 89 between Suresh Raina and Mike Hussey helped Super Kings to 187 for 6.

Both Raina and Hussey fell for 47 before Bravo and S Badrinath added 58 to keep their side on course to victory.

The West Indies allrounder scored a polished 38 and brought out his famous lofted shots on the off-side — he struck two inside-out sixes over cover.
Earlier, Bravo completed his four-over spell taking two wickets at the cost of 34 runs.
