Highveld Lions reach 186-5 vs. Mumbai Indians

Jonathan Vandiar smashed his highest Twenty20 score Friday to lead the Highveld Lions to 186 for five against Mumbai Indians in the opening match of the Champions League tournament at the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg.
Opening the batting for South Africa's Lions, the left-handed Vandiar hit 71 off 48 balls, including three soaring sixes, to give the unfancied home team an opportunity to beat the star-studded Mumbai lineup.
Former South Africa test player Neil McKenzie added 56 for the Lions and shared a 64-run partnership with Vandiar.
Both players brought up their half-centuries with sixes.
Sri Lanka's Lasith Malinga led Mumbai's bowling with 3-33 after Mumbai captain Sachin Tendulkar had won the toss and opted to bowl first.
