Mumbai Indians (MI)
The Mumbai Indians are the current IPL champions. They beat the Chennai Super Kings by just one run in 2019, securing their fourth winning title. This reigning win gives them the upper hand this time around as they face the same opponents in the opening game of the 2020 IPL.
With it being the first game of the IPL, the Mumbai Indians will be looking to start strong from the very first wicket. The MI captain, Rohit Sharma, will be doing all it takes to get them going towards a fifth tournament win. He is also their leading run-scorer, giving them a reputable advantage.
In terms of other strong Mumbai Indian players, keep a keen eye on Lasith Malinga - the wicket-taker to look out for this season.
Last year’s final between MI and CSK will be fresh in everyone’s minds, proving that both teams will be giving it their all right from the start. They will have to remain on top form if they are to start the same way they finished last season.
Chennai Super Kings (CSK)
The Chennai Super Kings will be looking to redeem themselves after last year’s defeat in the 2019 IPL final. It’s important to note that 2019 was not the first time that CSK experienced defeat by Mumbai Indians; having also lost out to them in the 2015 final as well.
With three Indian Premier League victories to their name, the Chennai Super Kings will be looking to add a fourth victory this year. Their captain, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, will have many tricks up his sleeves to lead them to success right from the first wicket of this opening game.
While the Mumbai Indians will be coming into this game with their 2019 IPL victory fresh in mind, the Chennai Super Kings will be keeping this a distant memory. They will not be letting this defeat dampen their chances of becoming the IPL champions once again.
