Only one point separates Chennai and Mumbai which makes this match eve more interesting than what it is. A win could potentially push them towards the top of the table and with the stakes so high we are staying away from picking a winner. I am backing Chennai Super Kings to continue their good starts and post the highest opening partnership of the match.

  • Chennai Super Kings have struck the most 6s in their last 5 matches against Mumbai Indians (IPL)

Head to Head


Chennai Super Kings have played Mumbai Indians 35 times in the Indian Premier League with 20 wins for Mumbai and 15 victories for Chennai. Yet, it is the Super Kings who have had an upper hand recently, winning three of their last four matches.

That included winning the reverse fixture at the Wankhede when Chennai won by seven wickets. Ravindra Jadeja’s 3/20 and Ajinkya Rahane’s 61 off just 27 balls led the Super Kings’ win.

Chennai Super Kings Form


Chennai Super Kings are 3rd in the standings with 11 points from 10 matches. They are coming off an abandoned match against Lucknow before which they lost two in a row.

The openers have led the way for Chennai with Devon Conway (414) and Ruturaj Gaikwad (354) leading the batting show. With the ball, it is Tushar Deshpande (17) and Ravindra Jadeja (14) leading the charts for Chennai.

Two straight defeats have robbed Chennai of some momentum but they are still well-placed to maintain their top-four charge.

Chennai Super Kings Team News


Deepak Chahar played his first game of the season in the last match but looked rusty. He could still continue in the playing XI though.

Mumbai Indians Form


Mumbai Indians are 6th in the standings with 10 points from nine matches. They are coming off a six-wicket win over Punjab making it two wins in a row.

It has been an up and down season for Mumbai with four batters aggregating 250+ but no one crossing 286. With the ball, the wily veteran Piyush Chawla has taken 15 wickets so far.

Things have fallen on place for Mumbai over the last two matches but the poor form of Rohit Sharma is a concern.

Mumbai Indians Team News


Chris Jordan has joined the side but may have to wait for his chance. Akash Madhwal had a debut to forget and could be pushed out of the side.
