The 27th match of IPL 2018 promises another cracker of a game when Chennai Super Kings will host defending champions Mumbai Indians at their new home ground Maharashtra Cricket Association, Pune.
The Best vs Best edition of IPL began with a breath-taking come-from-behind win for CSK. The men in yellow returned after two years of hiatus and took the stage by storm, courtesy Bravo’s brave knock.
Something similar is expected when both the teams will reload at Pune. Things have not changed much for both the sides apart from the stats in the points table. Most probably both the sides will reload with the same playing 11 which featured at Wankhede (apart from 1 or 2 changes due to injuries). So, let’s move forward to the playing 11 and betting odds.
