Meanwhile, all-rounder Hardik Pandya called it a clash between the two most loved teams in IPL.

"It has become a game which people look forward to. It is one of the two franchises that are most loved by the fans and that is how it becomes special. I do not know when we all will get our A-game out when we are playing against CSK and I wish we always do that," Pandya said.

Mumbai have a superior head-to-head record against CSK, especially in recent years. MI have won 17 while CSK have won 11 in their 28 encounters with each other. MI defeated CSK four times in four meetings last year, including in the final by one run.

MI head coach Mahela Jayawardene said the team always lifted their game against CSK.

"To beat a team like this or compete against a team like this you really really have to lift your game and I think naturally all the boys do that. As a franchise it is something that we thrive as well," Mahela said.
