Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings have quite a loyal fan base. Whenever the two teams lock horns in the Indian Premier League, the contest ends up to be no less than a cracker. Both teams have lifted the Indian Premier League Trophy thrice and Mumbai Indians have beaten CSK on a couple of occasions to lift the title. The last time the two teams locked horns in the opening game of the IPL 11 in Mumbai, Dhoni’s men clinched the victory by one wicket. This year in the IPL 12 two teams will lock horns again on April 3, 2019, in Mumbai.
