The most awaited fixture of the IPL is finally here! Mumbai Indians take on Chennai Super Kings. One of the biggest and most renowned rivalries in the history of the Indian Premier League has seen many great moments in the past and surely it would have many more to come in the future.
In the 30 matches played between these two teams, Mumbai Indians have an upper hand winning 18 of them. The story could be something else this time around as CSK look in great form while on the other side Mumbai Indians have failed to acquire that smoothness and consistency in achieving the results.
Feroz Shah Kotla has a flat pitch and has nearly nothing in for the bowlers. Both the teams have depth in their batting line-ups and I think Mumbai Indians will again go with Nathan Coulter Nile who can give them 4 proper overs if needed and the muscle power in the lower middle order.
I am backing Mumbai Indians to win this fixture just because of the number of game chargers they have. Hardik Pandya can come back to form and can change the course of the match.
