Indian Premier League 2019 | CSK vs MI | CSK vs MI IPL 2019 DREAM11 GRAND LEAGUE TEAM
Chennai, April 26, Friday at 08:00 PM IST
Comfortably sitting at the top of the table, Chennai Super Kings will be looking to continue their winning streak at home when they host Mumbai Indians tonight at their fortress- M Chidambaram Stadium. With eight wins in eleven outings, Chennai Super Kings is the first side to secure a playoff spot and has been one of the most consistent outfits in the IPL history.
The hosts have played five encounters at home and have been unbeaten at home in this season. They secured 6 wickets win over Sunrisers Hyderabad in the last encounter and avenged their previous loss. And, now it's time to avenge their first loss of the season- the one they faced at Wankhede Stadium at the hands of Mumbai Indians.
Mumbai Indians, on the opposite, will resume their campaign after a week's break. They last played Rajasthan Royals at their backyard- Sawai Man Singh Stadium in Jaipur and faced 5 wickets defeats. Sitting third in the table, Mumbai Indians have secured six wins in ten outings and will be looking to fix a spot in the playoffs early on.
The pitch I thought really improved for the last match, it played really well, we aren't sure what a good score was, but having seen the batsmen hit through the line, it showed that the pitch played better, it's a good sign, I think – Michael Hussey
I see this as an opportunity to strengthen the Mumbai Indians bowling line-up, will be great working with some of the best in the business – Beuran Hendricks
Head to head
Although M Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai has slowest of the surfaces in this season, the last encounter between CSK and SRH was high -scoring encounter. The wicket looked much better than previous encounters. It offered assistance to the batsmen and also looked pretty good to bat on. Something similar is expected tonight also.

Team 1 & 2: Spinners at work
Spinners love to bowl at M Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. We saw an absolute turner in the opening clash against RCB and since then spinners have an upper hand in taking wickets at this venue. Imran Tahir, Harbhajan Singh, R Jadeja have bowled brilliantly at this surface. Mumbai too has a couple of quality spinners in the name of K Pandya, M Markande and R Chahar. So, it can be spinners day out at M Chidambaram.
The middle-order on either side plays spin quite comfortably. So, they can be the right picks for captain and vice-captain.
