CSK have luck on their side
Most consecutive tosses won by a team in IPL:
9 SRH (May 2015 - Apr 2016)
9 CSK (Apr 2019 - ongoing) *
8 CSK (May 2018 - Mar 2019)
CSK have now won 17 tosses in their last 19 matches.
Suresh Raina wins toss and CSK has opted to field first No Dhoni for Chennai today. Dhoni missing out a game for the second time this season, this time due to fever
The pitch today was used for the first match against RCB in the opening match of the IPL when RCB could only score 70. This is the same pitch which was used for the last match against SRH too.
- Darren Ganga
REeports suggest that MS Dhoni might miss out today's encounter due to back spasms.
CSK vs MI
Predicted Playing XI: Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Harbhajan Singh, Deepak Chahar, Imran Tahir
Predicted Playing XI: Rohit Sharma (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Surya Kumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Rahul Chahar, Jason Behrendorff, Lasith Malinga, Jasprit Bumrah
The pitch I thought really improved for the last match, it played really well, we aren't sure what a good score was, but having seen the batsmen hit through the line, it showed that the pitch played better, it's a good sign, I think - Michael Hussey, CSK's batting coach isn't worried about the tricky Chepauk surface.
I see this as an opportunity to strengthen the Mumbai Indians bowling line-up, will be great working with some of the best in the business - Beuran Hendricks, who just joined the MI camp on Wednesday, is looking forward to picking the brains of the bowling coaches.
