Wow! What a start to the VIVO IPL 11  most exciting league in the world with the match between the two most dominating team of IPL: Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings (Comeback after 2 years ban).

No doubt the first encounter would be a thriller because it is between defending & three times champion team MI and two times champion and led by the former caption of India MS Dhoni


*Both teams look strong on paper, so make a balanced side as we expect a healthy competition in tomorrow’s match.

*Mumbai Indians batting lineup will rely on skipper Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya.

*Hitman Rohit Sharma will be once again opening for MI, with Evin Lewis as a possible partner.

*Hardik Pandya has turned out to be a very good all-rounder for T20. He is definitely one of the crucial players for MI.

*MI can look to bring Mustafizur Rahman in place of Sangwan. He is very good death bowler.

*Jasprit Bumrah the death over specialist will hold the key in the bowling department.

*Chennai will thrive on Murali Vijay, Shane Watson, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni, and Ambati Rayudu.

*Faf Duplessis is suffering from a finger injury, so his playing is not certain.

*One of Sam Billings or Faf Duplessis will play.

*One of Ambati Rayudu or Kedar Jadhav will play. Higher chances of Ambati Rayudu to be picked as he is a good floater.

*Stephen Fleming has clearly stated that Dhoni will have more responsibility with the bat this time around.

*While Suresh Raina (Chinna Thala) is in great form and is the best option for Captaincy, as he is one of the key player’s for CSK and will play a crucial role in both batting and bowling department.

*We expect Imran Tahir to sit out as CSK already has many spinning options.

*In recently concluded PSL, Shane Watson looked in good form with both bat and ball.

*Former MI player Harbhajan Singh along with Ravindra Jadeja will control spin department.

*Dwayne Bravo may have lost his batting skills. But his death bowling skills are ominous. He will look to squeeze run flow in death overs.

*Mark Wood will lead the pace attack with Shardul Thakur.
