MI vs CSK : Rivalry Old, Leadership New; Mumbai Indians vs Chennai Super Kings High Voltage Match Today | leader

Mumbai : Leading News Service : In what is seen as the most high-voltage match of the IPL, Mumbai Indians vs Chennai Super Kings is taking place at the Wankhede Stadium on Sunday. Although the rivalry between the two teams is old, this season's battle is not Mahendra Singh Dhoni vs Rohit Sharma, but the leadership of both the teams is new. Mumbai Indians have handed over the captaincy to Hardik Pandya and Chennai Super Kings to Rituraj Gaikwad. Therefore, everyone's attention is on who will start this 'Generation Next Rivally' victoriously.

After three consecutive defeats, former champions Mumbai Indians have a chance to achieve a hat-trick of victories. The host team will step into the Wankhede Stadium with the same objective. However, this time there is a tough challenge in front of them. Hardik Pandya-led Mumbai have won two out of five matches this season. Both these wins are at home. Back-to-back wins have boosted the confidence of the home team. The match against Chennai will be Mumbai's fourth consecutive match in front of home fans. The hosts are not worried about the fitness of key players. In it, all the key batsmen regained form against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Still, they expect consistent performances from Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Verma, captain Hardik Pandya, Tim David, Romario Shepherd as well as Jasprit Bumrah and Gerald Coetzee.

Chennai have won thrice in 5 matches. They broke a two-game losing streak when they defeated Kolkata Knight Riders in the previous match. Although the batting line-up is solid with captain Rituraj, Rachin Ravindra and Shivam Dubey, the team's expectations are high from local boy Ajinkya Rahane.
