There is a different feel in the air whenever Mumbai Indians face Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League. The two teams have shared an intense rivalry since the start of the tournament back in 2008, and it isn’t surprising that both CSK and MI have emerged as two most successful teams in the history of the tournament. While MI have won four titles under Rohit Sharma, MS Dhoni has led CSK to three IPL titles over the years.

“Pollard sent me a WhatsApp message saying, ‘Pack your bags. You are going home.’ And I was like ok, no problem. CSK qualified and had to play Mumbai in the playoffs,” Bravo recalled.

“And who was the person going home? Pollard. That’s why I gave him the send-off,” he further said.

Meanwhile, CSK off-spinner Harbhajan Singh who did not travel to the UAE to join CSK camp citing personal reasons, further said: “The 2013 finals was a great game. It was satisfying thing to beat CSK since they had beaten MI in the previous finals. The rivalry quotient had increased from then.”

The CSK vs MI, IPL 2020 match will begin at 7 PM.
