Mumbai, May 5: Mitchell Johnson took 3 wickets in one over as Mumbai Indians thrashed two-time champions Chennai Super Kings by 60 runs in Match 49 of IPL 2013 here at Wankhede Stadium on Sunday. The game was a unique one for Kieron Pollard with a hat-trick, not with wickets but 3 dropped catches in a row.
