Chennai vs Mumbai : Match Prediction, Head to Head, Probable Playing XI

It will be a match to look out when mighty Chennai Super Kings host their rivals Mumbai Indians in the 44th match of the ongoing VIVO Indian Premier League (IPL) on Friday.

Chennai are currently at the top in points table while Mumbai are placed 3rd in the table. This will be an opportunity for Chennai to widen the gap at the top while Mumbai will look to get close to the Delhi and Chennai as a tough competition is expected for the playoffs with Hyderabad and Punjab at 10 points each and Kolkata, Rajasthan and Bangalore all leveled at 8 points each.

Match Prediction :

Despite the match being played at M.A Chidambaram which is the home ground of CSK, I am backing Mumbai Indians to win this match. Chennai haven't been defeated in their home ground this season, but today might be the day to break that winning streak. Chennai has the services of ace spinners in the name of Imran Tahir and Harbhajan Singh both of whom have been phenominal this season so far.

Mumbai will probably look to play two spinners Rahul Chahar and Mayank Markande looking at the pitch conditions and can surely give challenge to mightly Chennai squad. The game is slightly in favor of CSK based on their home performances this season, but I am backing Mumbai to come out victorious in this match.
