MI Playing 11: It’s the weekend and the two most successful franchises of IPL history Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings will be up against each other at Delhi. This match is a much awaited one as both have developed a fancied rivalry over the years. MI have been blowing hot and cold throughout this season. But the defending champions produced a perfect performance in their last match which can be a signal for their return to form. Over the years, CSK and MI have played 30 matches which also includes a no. of playoffs and finals. In these matches, Mumbai lead Chennai 18:12. Last season, both teams won a game against each other. Despite the head-to-head record in the favour of Mumbai, it will be difficult for them to get past an in-form Chennai side.
All players are available for selection for Mumbai. They are likely to retain their winning eleven for this match.

Rohit Sharma has been getting starts but it’s been a while since he has played a big innings for Mumbai. Quinton de Kock’s return to form was a big positive while Krunal Pandya needed that last innings desperately. Bowling has been Mumbai’s strength with two classy international bowlers Boult and Bumrah leading the attack. Rahul Chahar has complemented them well.
