During the day match on Saturday's doubleheader, we will get to see the fiercest rivals, Chennai Super Kings meeting Mumbai Indians at the former’s home. The tales of Mumbai and Chennai rivalry date back to the year of the IPL’s inaugural, and needless to say, the CSK vs MI games have always been nothing less than full of thrill and entertainment. CSK, who have been playing well this season, sit at the third spot on the points table, whereas Mumbai Indians with 10 points hang on the fifth spot.
In their last clash in the IPL 2023, the Dhoni-led squad clashed against Mumbai’s Paltan once, and in that particular match, the CSK team won the toss. Now, we feel in the 49th game of the IPL 2O23, the record-time champions, Mumbai Indians will have luck on their side, and they will win the toss.
There’s no doubt in the fact that MI and CSK have always been in a neck-to-neck rivalry. Both the teams have faced each other 35 times in the Indian Premier League with MI having the upper hand, winning 20 matches. However, speaking of their last clash, CSK won the match by 7 wickets; hence, it goes without saying that Mumbai will take to the field to seek revenge. However, after losing two matches continuously and one indecisively, CSK are in no mood to lose another. Also, CSK have always been undefeated at their home den. Hence, we are sure that the Dhoni-led squad will take on the upcoming match.
