Apr 14, 2024 11:26 AM IST

The two mega franchises will collide in the biggest clash of the season at Wankhede Stadium. Check MI vs CSK likely XIs and head-to-head record.

It will be an action-packed battle between 2 five-time former champions and arch-rivals Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium on Sunday. The two most successful teams also share the most prolific rivalry in the history of IPL and will lock horns for the 37th time. While the CSK have looked good so far with their last win over the Kolkata Knight Riders. MI have also regained the momentum with consecutive wins over the Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Capitals.

MI’s star batter Suryakumar Yadav staged a majestic comeback against the Royal Challengers Bangalore with his exuberant half-century which was also his fastest in IPL. Besides Suryakumar, MI have also refuelled themselves in the batting order with timely performances from Ishan Kishan, Rohit Sharma and Hardik Pandya. The team will also count on blistering finishes from Tim David and Romario Shepherd as well.

The bowling unit of MI has also been sprightly with the likes of Jasprit Bumrah who picked a five-wicket haul in his last match. The right-hander will also look to replicate this performance against the arch-rivals.

Chennai Super Kings, on the other hand, unleashed an exemplary bowling performance against the Kolkata Knight Riders in their last match. Their bowling unit has been lethal this season with outstanding performances from Tushar Deshpande and Ravindra Jadeja. In the absence of Matheesha Pathirana, whose comeback is still hazy, the Yellow Army might continue to avail the services of Mustafizur Rehman in fast bowling.

However, they will be looking for a constructive performance by their skipper Ruturaj Gaikwad and Rachin Ravindra for the opening stand.
