The league stage of the Indian Premier League 2019 has finally come to an end and the tournament is down to its playoffs stage where the first qualifier match is between the Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.
Both the teams finished with 18 points each in the Points Table at the end of the league stage where MI finished right at the top because of a superior Net Run Rate. Now, the winner of this game will be directly off to the finals to meet the winners of the Qualifier 2 game.
These two teams played their last respective games on the final league stage day where Chennai had to suffer from a loss against the Kings XI Punjab in a one-sided game. A sensational knock from the bat of KL Rahul ensured a six-wicket win for his team while on the other hand, MI won their last encounter against the Kolkata Knight Riders. That too was a single sided affair where they won the match with the help of a good team effort.
It will be mouth-watering clash to offer for all the IPL fans out there as these two teams have a long rivalry since the past so many editions. These two teams have met 28 times in the IPL history where Mumbai Indians have a bit of the advantage as they have won at 16 occasions while CSK have 12 wins to their name. In the 2019 edition, these two teams met two teams and both the matches were won by the Mumbai Indians.
As far as team changes are concerned in this game, both the sides are famous for not making much changes and as MI made two changes in their last game after which they also won the game. So, they are expected to most probably play with same eleven players. On the other hand, CSK also have played with the same team but as Kedar Jadhav suffered from a shoulder injury in the last game after which he is likely to be ruled out for the remainder of IPL. So, Murali Vijay is expected to come in and replace the all-rounder.
