For Chennai, this matchup is all about facing up to the one team they have not been able to dominate in the Indian T20 Premier League. While against every other team in the league, the Chennai team can boast of a winning percentage of above 50%, against Mumbai the win percentage falls to just 40%. This stat was helped along by Mumbai beating Chennai in all 4 games last season, including the first qualifier and ultimately the final as they went on to lift the trophy for a record 4th time.

Chennai continue to bank on experienced players to take them forward, bringing the likes of Piyush Chawla and Josh Hazelwood into the fold. These two experienced heads, along with the young England all-rounder Sam Curran, will add further depth to what is already a strong core of the team. MS Dhoni has led the team ably right from the first season of Indian T20 Premier League, with the team sticking to its principles of playing smart, calculative cricket and every player making meaningful contributions in every season.

Apart from Chennai, Mumbai is the only team that has kept the core of the squad intact over the years and the results are there for all to see. 4 championships in 8 years, multiple records being broken along the way and an air of intimidation about the team, just go to show how far the team has come from struggling in the initial years of Indian T20 Premier League. Rohit Sharma’s captaincy has been a huge factor behind this success, along with the emergence and consistent performances of the likes of Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik and Krunal Pandya, and Keiron Pollard.
