Raina and Harbhajan are not playing for Chennai Super Kings
The Rohit Sharma - led side holds a 17-11 lead over CSK
MI is the only side that has won more matches than they have lost against CSK
Mumbai Indians take on Chennai Super Kings in the season-opener of IPL 2020. Ahead of the much-awaited contest, here's a look at the match prediction
Tournament: INDIAN PREMIER LEAGUE
DATE : Saturday, September 19, 2020
Time : 7:30 PM
Weather: The temperature is going to hover around the mid 30s to begin with, and at its lowest point duing the game, will fall to 29 degrees Celcius.
Pitch: Abu Dhabi has long diagonal boundaries, which would mean a lot running would have to take place in the middle. The pitch will be as lively as it will ever be through the course of this tournament - the best time for the batsmen and the pacers to cash in.
MUMBAI INDIANS : Rohit Sharma will open the innings alongside Quinton de Kock. Nine of the 11 players who featured in the final last year, are expected to hold their places. While Trent Boult is expected to fill one overseas pacer’s slot, the other one could be a toss-up between Nathan Coulter-Nile and Mitchell McClenaghan
Probable XI: Rohit Sharma (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Nathan Coulter-Nile/Mitchell McClenaghan, Rahul Chahar, Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah
CHENNAI SUPER KINGS : Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh won’t be a part of the side this year, which means CSK will be without a top-order left-hander and a frontline offspinner in their XI. Dwayne Bravo didn’t bowl in the CPL final due to a knee niggle. If he hasn’t recovered, there could be a possibility of CSK playing Sam Curran, who could also bat higher up in the order.
Probable XI: Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav, Dwayne Bravo/Sam Curran, Ravindra Jadeja, Piyush Chawla, Imran Tahir, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur
MUMBAI INDIANS SHOULD WIN THE MATCH
