Chennai Super Kings are at a point where they just need one win to confirm their slot for the Playoffs. At 16 points, however, they still are in a comfortable position. Mumbai, on the other hand, still have some work to do. Up against Chennai, Rohit and his men have had a great record being the only team to have dominated CSK.

|Chennai Super Kings Won||11|
But in Chennai, Mumbai will have a task at hand because at home, CSK have almost been invincible and with Thala’s magic on the brink, it’s going to be a tough ask to prevail against them at home.
Watson’s Return To Form
Chennai’s top order has finally found some grip with Shane Watson playing a good hand in the previous game. By scoring 96 he has paid off the trust shown on him by Fleming and Dhoni. In today’s match at home Watson’s knock could be crucial because once he gets going it’s all ‘stand and deliver’ for him.

Chennai’s batting has been a major scare in this tournament and with a roaring bowling machine like Malinga-Bumrah, it’s going to be a tough task to score against the Mumbai Indians. Apart from Dhoni, nobody has really been delivering the goods and if they’re eyeing a win today, the very strong on-paper side needs to fire up.
The ‘Hard’ Part Of the Story
Hardik Pandya has always played a pivotal role in Mumbai’s victories against Chennai in the past 4 out of 5 games and this time in the previous encounter too he scored a double by making 25*(8) and picking up 3 crucial wickets to derail the Super Kings. In today’s game too, he’ll be in full swing to dominate the opponents
The Chennai Super Kings have been exceptional at home so this contest won’t be a simple one like their previous head on. Mumbai will have to play on their strengths such as bowling and not give any room for CSK to build an inning out of it. Their batting, however, is still under question but with Ishan Kishan back in the side let’s see if he can fire up some over the top.
It’s Mahi’s Men against the Hitman 11, let’s hope we find a perfect masala entertainer tonight and may the best team win.
