For several years now, Chennai, one of the most decorated teams in the Indian T20 League, has been a fan favourite. They have done brilliantly year after year, making it to the playoffs in every season they played in. But, this time around, things do not look good at all for them. Pegged at the bottom of the points table, their chances of making it into the playoffs are almost over, with 3 wins in 10 games.
On the other hand, in this match, Chennai’s opponents, Mumbai, who had the history of staring at the tournament on a sketchy note and then winning a series of matches to get into the playoffs, have performed well since the beginning. They played 9 games and won 6 of those matches. So, it would be a very tough task for Chennai to get past the might of Mumbai in this match, as the team looks to be well set and eyeing this season’s 5th tournament win.
The match will play under a clear sky with only 10% chances of rainfall, a full-length game is expected on the cards today. The temperature would be about 28 to 31 degrees Celsius.
In Sharjah, the pitch was brilliant for the batsmen. 170-180 is also a good score for chasing and defending. Since the second phase of the tournament began, however, batting second seems to be more relaxed.
Chennai Super Kings:
MS Dhoni (c&wk), Faf du Plessis, Sam Curran, Shane Watson, Ambati Rayudu, Ravindra Jadeja, N Jagadeesan, Deepak Chahar, Josh Hazlewood, Shardul Thakur, Piyush Chawla/Ravisrinivasan Sai Kishore

Rohit Sharma (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Faf du Plessis, Ambati Rayudu, Hardik Pandya, Suryakumar Yadav, Kieron Pollard, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar, Josh Hazlewood, Rahul Chahar
Mumbai was comprehensively defeated the last time these two sides clashed in the IPL 2020 opener. In the form of Ambati Rayudu, Chennai had a rock that did a great deal of harm to the Yellow Army.
The situation has changed, however, and Mumbai has climbed to third in the table with some overwhelming results. Mumbai Indians are the favourites to win this match.
