CSK vs MI ;Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians are the two most successful franchises in the history of the tournament with three titles each. However, Mumbai Indians have an upper hand over the yellow brigade as they have managed to win four out of five times in their previous meeting. Mumbai Indians hold an overall advantage as well with 12 wins in 14 meetings. However, mere statistics do not present Mumbai Indians as favourites. Considering the purple patch of the counterparts, Chennai Super Kings cannot be underestimated at all.
“We lost a bit of momentum in the middle while batting. I wouldn’t say 176 was a winning score but we were in the game if we bowled well. The wicket was very nice. Big scores have been chased in Mohali. These things can happen and I don’t want to be too critical about my bowlers,” said skipper Rohit Sharma.
