Chennai Super Kings vs Mumbai Indians Match Preview (Mumbai Indians vs Chennai Super Kings)
Mumbai Indians will face Chennai Super Kings in the first match of IPL. Both teams are two successful teams in the history of this league. While Mumbai has captured the title 4 times, Chennai Super Kings have been champion 3 times.
Under the leadership of Rohit Sharma, the Mumbai team had defeated Chennai in the final of IPL 2019, so their morale will be very high. The team’s batting is very strong and the fast bowling attack is also very good. Large all-rounders like Pollard and Pandya are present. With Malinga leaving, the pace bowling may be a bit loose, but they also have good bowlers like Trent Boult and Nathan Coulter Nile who will benefit the team.
Chennai Super Kings
Chennai Super Kings have more than one experienced player. This time the IPL is being held in the UAE, then the spinning attack of Chennai on the pitch there will be expected to perform well.
