The opening ceremony of the eleventh edition of the Indian Premier League will see arch rivals Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings clash and thus take a step forward in the quest for Championship.
Mumbai Indians who are known to be very poor starters, have lost all their opening five games of the fixtures.
Chennai Super Kings make a comeback to the IPL, after being suspended for two years.
Both the formidable teams CSK and MI would be gearing up at Wankhede Stadium to stamp their authority in the opening game.
Chennai Super Kings have won the IPL twice while Mumbai Indians has won three times.
Both the teams have played 22 matches against each other, with Mumbai Indians winning 12 times,and Chennai winning 10 times.
The last time the two teams clashed was in the year 2015, with Mumbai getting the better of Chennai.
We hope this game lives up to its billing, just as the Liverpool-Man City midweek Champions League did. That UCL tie was an enthralling one and leaves Pep Guardiola with several questions ahead of the second leg, as mentioned by the folks at the Manchester City news website mancitycore.com.
Mumbai had defeated Rising Pune Super Giants by one run to win the title in 2017.
