How these two teams CSK and MI have fared against each other?
Here’s their IPL head-to-head record
In 25 matches between these two teams, Mumbai ave won 14 and and Chennai 11.
With an unbeaten home record this season, a better spin attack, Watson returning to form and MS Dhoni being in good nick, CSK are favourites to beat Mumbai.
CSK have not last a match at home this season. Fact: CSK have lost five of their last seven matches against MI.
So then, which way will the tide turn? Can Rohit Sharma‘s Mumbai succeed at CSK’s fortress, the MA Chidambaram Stadium? Or will MS Dhoni‘s yellow brigade give their legion . of fans another reason to cheer at Chepauk?
Earlier this month, before MI hosted CSK at the Wankhede Stadium in a match which the home team won, Rohit termed MI vs CSK as the El Clasico of the IPL. The fans on both side will not dispute such a statement, for Mumbai and Chennai is arguably the hottest competition in the league.
Having returned to winning ways with a win over Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will now take on Mumbai Indians (MI) in the 44th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Friday.
The Rohit Sharma-led unit is coming into this game after enjoying a four-day breakfollowing their defeat against Rajasthan Royals (RR). While MI defeated MS Dhoni-led CSK in the first leg of the matches of this season, CSK will look to return the favour as they host MI.
CSK though will have some issues to sort. Although the duo of Dwayne Bravo and Deepak Chahar bowled well in their last game, the spinners – Harbhajan Singh, despite his two wickets against SRH and Imran Tahir struggled to stem the flow of runs.
