Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians are also the defending champions of IPL 2020 and will try their best to kickstart the new season with a victory.
This season will also be special for all Dhoni fans, as the former Indian cricket team captain will be back in action for the first time after retiring his announcement from international cricket recently. It can also be the last season for MS Dhoni’s captaincy as the captain of CSK.
Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma is all confident and excited for his team as he will be stepping on the field with an excellent team of playing XI. While Mumbai Indians have earlier failed to leave an impressive game for their fans on the foreign pitches, the captain is expecting a favourable result for the team this year.

This year, Chennai Super Kings will be missing two of their excellent players as Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh have stepped out of the current league citing personal reasons. However, this has not led down the morale of the Dhoni-led side.
The two teams have played against each other 28 times in the IPL seasons so far. MI have dominated the outings, with 17 victories, while 11 were won by the CSK. Mumbai Indians have won four IPL titles till now, while CSK claim their name on three IPL trophies.
