MI vs CSK Head to Head Records: The Sportsrush presents for you the Head to Head statistics for the first match of IPL 2020.
The first match of the 13th season of the Indian Premier League between defending champions Mumbai Indians and runners-up Chennai Super Kings will put an end to many waits – wait of IPL 2020, wait of watching Indian cricketers back on the field and (perhaps the biggest of them all) the wait of former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
For a tournament which will begin nearly after a six-month postponement, IPL 2020 has all the ingredients of enticing a plethora of cricket fans across the world for the next two months or so.
As far as the season opener is concerned, Mumbai have a clear edge over Chennai but they would also be vary about the fact that the last time they won their first match of an IPL season was in 2012. Chennai, on the other hand, have enough reasons to not be the favourites. However, entirely ruling out a team being led Dhoni isn’t a wise call either.
