The last time these two teams met was the inaugural match of the season – a match which will be remembered for Dwayne Bravo’s batting heroics and Kedar Jadhav’s finishing act! Since then a lot has happened. While the Mumbai Indians (MI) have been at the wrong end of last over finishes and languish at the seventh position of the points table, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have had the exact opposite going their way. A scenario which has brought agony for Rohit Sharma has been a source of joy for MS Dhoni!
There has been a lot of debate about the use of Kieron Pollard by the Mumbai Indians and rightly so. He has not bowled at all this season and has barely spent time with the bat in the middle. The fact that he has only bowled 7.5 overs in the IPL since May 24, 2015 makes him a specialist batsman.
During his knock of 70 not out against Bangalore, MS Dhoni became the first player to score 5000 runs as a captain in T20 cricket
Since his match-winning innings of 56 against Kolkata, Sam Billings has made scores of nine, three and nine in the three matches he has had an opportunity to bat
Ravindra Jadeja has a batting average of 15.66 this season and has picked up one wicket so far at an average of 84
