IPL 2019: Champions vs. Champions

The 15th match of the ongoing IPL will be a thrilling game as both the teams have lifted the trophy three times each. Mumbai Indians won the trophy in the year 2013, 2015 and 2017, whereas the defending champions, Chennai Super Kings, have taken the trophy home in 2010, 2011 and 2018. Both the teams have faced each other thrice in the IPL finale, in which Mumbai Indians defeated Chennai Super Kings twice, whereas Chennai defeated Mumbai only once. 

Both the teams have confronted each other 26 times in IPL, out of which Mumbai Indians won 14 matches and Chennai Super Kings won 12 games. Thus, Mumbai Indians have an upper hand over Chennai Super Kings. But now the time has changed; we cannot predict the winner by previous records or their history. Chennai Super Kings are currently the defending champions, and they have won all the three matches they played in this year because of which they are at the top of the points table. Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, didn’t even make it to the playoffs last season and has only won one match out of three games they played this year. 

Both the teams have some star players in their squad which will make the contest even more interesting. Chennai Super Kings team has Shane Watson, Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni, who have the capability to turn the match on its heads, whereas Mumbai Indians have Rohit Sharma, Quinton De Kock and, Yuvraj Singh, who have created their records whether it be Rohit Sharma’s three double centuries or 6 sixes by Yuvraj Singh in an over. The rest will depend on time.
