Dream11 IPL 2020 LIVE UPDATES

Defending champions Mumbai Indians will play Chennai Super Kings in the IPL opener in Abu Dhabi on September 19. With two heavyweights clashing in the opener, the T20 tournament is set to get off to a fine start. Eyes would be on the respective captains of both sides.

With the spin-friendly tracks that would be on offer, CSK would fancy themselves to be the favourites as they have a good set of spinners in their line up.

Toss would be crucial as the side that wins the toss would in all likelihood bat first, considering the temperatures would dip in the evening and the pitch will get slower.
