If there is one team that Chennai Super Kings would not have wanted to face, it is Mumbai Indians and that is exactly what they will have to to encounter in the Qualifier 1.

The joint-most successful teams of the IPL, both having won three titles each, will take on each other at Chennai's home ground at the MA Chidambaram Stadium. After a loss to Kings XI Punjab in their last league match, CSK have slid down to the second spot with nine wins and five losses from 14 matches.

Mumbai Indians climbed to the top spot after a dominating win over Kolkata Knight Riders. They end the league stage with nine wins and five losses from 14 matches but have a slightly better run rate than Chennai.

If there is one team which has had the measure of Chennai Super Kings over the years, it is Mumbai Indians. In the last five matches between the two teams, Mumbai have come out victorious four times and would be the favourites going into this match.

Chennai's bowling, which always had a few chinks, was exposed by Punjab's batsmen in their last league match. Especially, KL Rahul came down hard on the spinners and CSK did not seem to have a response.

Likewise, several of CSK's batters such as Shane Watson, Suresh Raina and Kedar Jadhav have been on and off, which gives Mumbai the edge going into Qualifier 1.

 

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams.

 

Mumbai Indians- Rohit Sharma, Quinton de Kock, Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Mitchell McClenaghan, Rahul Chahar, Jasprit Bumrah, Lasith Malinga

Chennai Super Kings- Faf du Plessis, Shane Watson, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni, Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Harbhajan Singh, Deepak Chahar, Imran Tahir
