I came. P. L. Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians, on Friday, have two strong teams. A. Chidambaram will come down hard to challenge each other at stadium In the captaincy of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Chennai is at the
top with 8 wins in 11 matches and 16 points after 3 losses and their claim in the play-off is almost certain. In the captaincy of Rohit Sharma, Mumbai are in third place with six wins from 10 matches and 12 points after 4 defeats. Delhi Capitals is followed by second with 14 points.
All the teams’ eyes are now fixed in the playoffs and the Mumbai will try to strengthen their position in the points table. Chennai, who have won 3-time champions Mumbai and former champions and three titles, are both strong teams and will face each other for the second time this season. In the last match on April 1, Chennai had defeated Mumbai by 37 runs at their Wankhede Stadium and this time Chennai would be keen on taking revenge for the loss of the hosted hosts.
After losing two consecutive matches from Chennai, Bangalore and Hyderabad have once again returned to the track and this is the key to this team that they do not lose their rhythm easily and learn from mistakes. Team captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is in the best of form and has been the top scorer in 10 matches by scoring 314 runs at an average of 104.66. All-rounder Suresh Raina and opener Shane Watson are the top scorers in the team since then. Opener Watson was the man of the match against Hyderabad and scored 96 runs.
Like the batting order of the team, he has good bowling combination, including Ravindra Jadeja, Deepak Chahar, experienced off-spinner Harbhajan Singh, Dwayne Bravo, and Imran Tahir. His former player against Mumbai can prove to be crucial, who has so far taken 9 wickets from 5 matches. Hopefully, he will get priority on the place of Sharad Thakur again. Captain Dhoni can come out with an eighth to stop Mumbai.
