After beating the Sunrisers Hyderabad on Tuesday, Chennai Super Kings are set to host their arch-rivals Mumbai Indians at the Chepauk for another mouth-watering IPL clash on Friday. While CSK will head into the game full of confidence, following their win over SRH, MI will look to return to winning ways, having lost their last encounter against the Rajasthan Royals on Saturday. Both sides will battle it out for the second time this season, with the Mumbai Indians beating the defending champions by 37 runs in the previous encounter at the Wankhede Stadium.

Shane Watson’s sensational knock against the Sunrisers helped the Chennai Super Kings to remain at the top of the table. Having lost back-to-back games, CSK made a terrific comeback in their previous encounter against SRH. With eight wins from their 11 outings, CSK have almost qualified for the playoffs. CSK have a slight edge in tomorrow's encounter as they are yet to lose a home game this season.

Meanwhile, the Mumbai Indians have been in decent form so far in this year's IPL. They are currently thirdin the standings, having won six of their 10 fixtures. MI would be determined to register another victory against CSK to inch closer to a place in the playoffs. The Rohit Sharma-led team have the potential to go all the way this season and lift the title for a record fourth time. Mumbai Indians would be hoping to breach the Chennai fortress when they collide with their familiar foes tomorrow.
