The Indian Premier League will begin its second phase from the 19th of September in Abu Dhabi, with an El Clasico between the 3-times IPL champion Chennai Super Kings and the defending champions Mumbai Indians.
Both sides have done fairly well this season so far and are in the top four currently. CSK won five of their seven games and are standing second on the points table, whereas defending champions MI won four from seven matches as well and are two slots below at the fourth spot in table.
With five titles, including back-to-back title wins in the past two seasons, MI are the team to beat this season as they eye a hat-trick of titles. Meanwhile, CSK are one of the most dominant sides in the IPL. The Dhoni-led side have three titles to their name and they will aim to bounce back.
The boundaries are usually bigger than normal, and it requires a lot of firepower from the batters to clear the fence. We can expect a balanced surface for this game.
