After scripting a sensational comeback in their previous encounter, Chennai Super Kings is ready to visit Mumbai for another enthralling contest. Mumbai Indians will look to get their campaign back on track while the visitors will be keen on keeping their cent percent winning record this season. The stage is set for a thrilling finish when these two IPL juggernauts will battle it out tomorrow at the Wankhede Stadium.

Mumbai Indians had an awful start to their IPL campaign as they have lost two of their three league games so far. Rohit Sharma has not been at his best both with the bat and captaincy which is a major concern for the hosts. Having lost their previous match, Mumbai Indians would be hoping to bounce back in front of their home crowd when they host the defending champions. Hardik Pandya is an essential cog in the wheel for the Blue Army, but his bowling has been under the scanner. They will be desperate to dominate the upcoming home game and register their second win of the season.

Chennai Super Kings, on the other hand, has proved the world why they are the most consistent team in IPL history. MS Dhoni led his team to another remarkable comeback after his side was reeling 27 for three inside the fifth over. The Captain Cool was declared the man of the match for his unbeaten knock of 75 runs off just 46 deliveries. With three wins in three games, the visitors would be eyeing to maintain their perfect start heading into the 14th fixture if the Indian Premier League.
