Out of the overall 26 matches between the two teams, Mumbai Indians has won 14 and Chennai Super Kings has won 12. At the Wankhede, in matches between MI and CSK, Mumbai Indians has won 5 and Chennai Super Kings has won 3 matches.
Beating arch-rivals Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at their home ground Wankhede Stadium, would make it a perfect occasion. A victory today will also help Mumbai Indians get back to winning ways after receiving a eight-wicket thrashing against Kings XI Punjab in Mohali on Saturday.
Mumbai Indians (MI) will be eagerly eyeing a historic victory today. And the three-time champions couldn't have asked for a better stage than this to bring up their 100th win of the Indian Premier League and also become the first team to bring up the milestone.
