The winning percentage of MI against CSK in all the seasons is high.
After a distressful five months, Indian Premier League is all set to enchant the cricket lovers with its 13th edition.
And for that, no one could ask for a better option when MI take on CSK in the opening match.IPL fans always thrill whenever the three-time champ, CSK locks their horns with the super victorious MI.
However, cricket experts say Mumbai Indians are going to have an advantage over Chennai Super Kings in the opening match.They are citing a lot more reasons, but the major one includes the absence of key players, Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh.
Suresh Raina has been the match-winner throughout all the seasons.He is the leading run-scorer in the IPL for CSK.
On the other side, besides his impeccable off-spin bowling, Harbhajan has been quite handy in batting line-up as well.
Moreover, Mumbai Indians have an advantage of athleticism which is lacking in CSK throughout their fight in IPL.In T20, everyone knows even a single run is very crucial to win a game.Almost all the major players in CSK team are above thirty-plus age which is not the case with MI.In the IPL history, Mumbai Indians have won many games with their tremendous fielding efforts.
Of late, if we compare overall head to head, MI won 17 matches where CSK has 11 in their kitty.
