MS Dhoni’s team had begun with a six-wicket loss against Kings XI Punjab in their opening match. They then thrashed Delhi Daredevils in their second match by 93 runs. Chennai then managed to beat Rajasthan Royals by a narrow seven-run margin. After two contrasting wins, the Chennai players would be feeling confident and would know how to win. They are the most successful team in IPL’s history and they have managed to find a formula for success in most seasons.

 

Mumbai have had a horrible start to their IPL 2014 campaign. The defending champions have been outplayed in both their matches so far. They lost by a massive 41-run margin in the IPL opener against Kolkata Knight Riders. Rohit Sharma‘s team lost by seven wickets against Royal Challengers Bangalore in their second. But this is a new day and a new match and Mumbai would look to stop the losing trend.
