Chennai, April 26, Friday at 08:00 PM IST
After a week's vacation, Mumbai Indians are back in business. They will be locking horns with the table toppers, Chennai Super Kings, in Friday's fixture at M Chidambaram Stadium.
Sitting third in the table with six wins in ten encounters, Mumbai Indians will be looking to secure a playoff spot as early as possible, as the tournament has reached a stage where each game matters the most, barring the hosts.
The hosts, Chennai Super Kings are the table-toppers who have virtually secured a playoffs spot and have distinguished themselves from rest of the pack.
Also, the fact that Chennai Super Kings hasn't lost a game at home this season makes the clash an interesting one. They comfortably chased down the mighty 176 runs target set by Sunrisers Hyderabad in the last encounter and look favourites to with the clash with the home advantage.
However, the hosts faced their first defeat of the season at the hands of Mumbai Indians when both the teams met first time in Mumbai. So, can they make it a double over Chennai or will the hosts manage to continue their winning run at the home?
The coin will be tossed at 07:30 PM IST.
Head to head:
Total – 25
Mumbai Indians- 14
Chennai Super Kings – 11
Last game between the hosts and Sunrisers Hyderabad was a high-scoring battle despite the sluggish nature of the wicket. Expect a similar total this around too.
