Indian Premier League is back and its back with a bang. The 11th edition of IPL will kick off with defending champions Mumbai Indians taking on Chennai Super Kings, who are returning after serving a two-year suspension and would be raring to go. Mumbai Indians go into the contest as favourites and have almost all bases covered and captain Rohit Sharma has a problem of plenty. Mumbai will be relying on big names such as Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah, and youngsters would be encouraged to play their natural game.
Chennai Super Kings, on the other hand, would be grateful that they are returning to IPL and Mahendra Singh Dhoni will be once again center of attention. CSK has tried to retain their core and players like Suresh Raina, Dwayne Bravo would be expected to deliver goods under pressure. The match will be played at Wankhede and the pitch promises to be a belter and whoever can strike big with the bat would hold the ace.
