MI vs CSK Head to Head in IPL: The Sportsrush presents before you the Head to Head statistics for IPL 2019 final between Mumbai and Chennai.
The final match of the ongoing 12th season of the Indian Premier League will be played between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings at Hyderabad tomorrow. In what will be the fourth encounter between the two giant IPL teams this season, Indians will be banking on them remaining unbeaten against Super Kings in the previous three matches.
The fact that MI are the only IPL team to have a better Head-to-Head record against CSK also goes in their favour. While Mumbai have bettered Chennai at both Wankhede (7-5) and Chepauk (6-2), it is the defending champions who surpass MI while playing at neutral venues (5-4).
