It is the much-awaited IPL clash, popularly known as the El Classico when Chennai Super Kings host Mumbai Indians. Having won their previous match against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), Chennai Super Kings will start as a confident side at the Chepauk Stadium on Friday. The MS Dhoni-led side will aim to solidify their place at the summit of the IPL table after two losses while the Mumbai Indians, who are currently at the third spot in the table will also aim to seal a place for the playoffs. (SCORECARD)
Both the teams have faced each other in 27 matches in IPL history and Mumbai have won 15 of those games, while Chennai have managed to win the remaining 12.
Mumbai Indians, the three-time champions will depend on their opener Quinton de Kock, who has amassed 378 runs from 10 games and has mostly given fine starts to his side. Also, a lot will depend on Hardik Pandya as he has blasted down the batting order on several occasions this season.

Wicket-keeping: Quinton de Kock has displayed great form in this Indian Premier League but Dhoni will pip him because of the way he handles the pressure. There are talks about Dhoni may be rested hence De Kock looks a safer bet.
Batting: Both the sides have some big name batsmen in the likes of Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, Suresh Raina and Shane Watson etc.
Bowling: Imran Tahir, Deepak Chahar and Rahul Chahar has been in great form and have been scalping wickets to their name, they get the nod in our dream11
All-rounder: Hardik Pandya and Dwayne Bravo are two all-rounders we can rely on, they make it to our dream11.
