When and where:
Mumbai Indians will take on Chennai Super Kings in the first match of the playoffs of IPL 2019, on (May 7) at M Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai, India.
Mumbai Indians have been one of the fiercest sides in the Indian Premier League for a while, and are record holders of the title as well with three to their name. The team this season has finished at the top of the table, and have produced some really commendable performances. Captain Rohit Sharma has been out of form for the majority of the tournament but finally has come around to showcase his true potential to the world. He will be looking to lead this franchise to yet another glorious outing in the playoffs.
On the other hand, Chennai Super Kings are the defending champions and finished in second place in the league table of the IPL. Their skipper MS Dhoni has been phenomenal, and he has aged like a fine wine. Even though the man is 37 years old, this could easily be one of his better tournaments domestically in recent history. This team is unbelievably balanced, and don’t possess any such weakness, apart from a shabby record against their upcoming opponents.
The match will begin at 7:30 PM IST.

MI vs CSK Players to watch out for:
For Mumbai Indians, their superstar batsman and captain Rohit Sharma is the one to rely on. He has been in good form lately and will be looking to justify to the world why he is one of the best players in the game right now as he possesses a Midas touch and is coming off a game where he scored 55 runs in 48 balls for the winning cause. Jasprit Bumhra is the bowler to keep an eye on as he has been extremely economical as well and has an unparalleled ability to make batsman choke in the death overs. He took two wickets in the last game and gave away 31 runs in four overs.
For Chennai Super Kings, opening batsman Faf du Plessis along with Indian T20 specialist Suresh Raina are the most likely players who will be doing the damage against the opposition. While Faf du Plessis has made an immediate impact since coming in the starting lineup, and he scored 96 runs, Suresh Raina too has looked strong in the last two games as he has scored two consecutive half-centuries at a healthy run-rate.
