Match Preview

Mumbai – The three-time IPL champions pitted against returning Chennai Super Kings, there cannot be a bigger fixture to kick-start the eleventh edition of IPL.

In the much-anticipated IPL opener at the buzzing Wankhede Stadium, Rohit Sharma led MI would want to begin the defence of their title putting their best foot forward. On the other hand, CSK would like to make a statement on their return to the IPL action after a two-year suspension.

The stage is set for the IPL giants to have a crack at each other, expect a cracker first up!


  • In the pre-season press conference, Rohit indicated that the opening combination is as a surprise, but mentioned the names of Evin Lewis and Ishan Kishan. The two are most likely to open and Rohit Sharma will slot in at three.
  • Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Surya Kumar Yadav, Kieron Pollard and Jasprit Bumrah are among the sure starters for the tournament opener.

  • One of Shane Watson or Sam Billings and Murali Vijay are most likely to open the batting for team CSK, with Suresh Raina at three.
  • CSK coach Stephen Fleming confirmed that MS Dhoni will bat relatively high in this year’s edition and also told the press about Faf’s finger injury.
  • Ravindra Jadeja, Kedar Jadhav, Dwayne Bravo, Shardul Thakur and Harbhajan Singh are among other sure starters for the Chennai team.

# If Mumbai Indians bat first:

Predicted score: 180+

The Wankhede pitch is usually a batting paradise, with nothing in it for the bowlers. With Evin Lewis and Ishan Kishan likely to open the batting, we could see a lot of runs scored in the powerplay. If Lewis gets going, he could take the game away from the opposition.

Kishan will look to play second fiddle and provide the anchor to the innings. Mumbai’s middle-order looks extremely strong too with Rohit Sharma, the Pandya brothers, and Kieron Pollard. With an extremely strong bowling line-up, a score of above 180 would be ideal for the defending champions.


# If Chennai Super Kings bat first:

Predicted score: 160+

The Chennai Super Kings have a lot of experience in their squad but they do not have too many big hitters. They will be banking on Suresh Raina to go big right from the time he comes out to bat. Shane Watson and Murali Vijay are likely to open the batting, with Raina coming in at number 3 and MS Dhoni slated to come in at number 4.

Kedar Jadhav will play the role of the finisher in the side. With this batting line-up, they could get around 160-170 runs on the board if they bat first. With a strong bowling line-up, this could be an ideal score for them.

Final prediction:

The Mumbai Indians are usually slow starters, however, this time around, they will look to get off to a winning start against a side they have performed reasonably well against in the past, defeating them in two finals as well. With a stronger batting line-up, the defending champions would most likely come out on top in the season opener.


MI: Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya

CSK: Suresh Raina, Shane Watson, Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, MS Dhoni
