Today we have defending champions Chennai Super Kings going against the most successful team in the history of Indian Premier League, Mumbai Indians at Wankhede Stadium. 8 years ago on 2nd April India defeated Sri Lanka at this very ground and lifted the world cup after 28 years.
CSK is the only undefeated team in the league till now while MI has won their only match against RCB this year.
The main issue for MI this season has been their middle order. Mitchell McClenaghan is also out of form too. Good news is Jason Behrendorff has joined the side and can make his debut tonight.
The main concern for CSK is their bowling in death overs. Wankhede’s wicket is fast bowler friendly and the way Mitchell Santer played in last game, he can be replaced with a fast bowler.
Meanwhile, David Willey has pulled out of the tournament due to family reasons. Scott Kuggeleijn has replaced injured Lungi Ngidi in CSK.
Both the team has something to work on but CSK as a unit has looked more confident and complete in every aspect. MI, on the other hand, has some serious issues that they need to look at.
