In both the league stage meetings, Mumbai Indians defeated Chennai Super Kings by 37 and 46 runs respectively. But the defending champions Chennai Super Kings will aim to make a strong comeback. 

Pitch Conditions

Venue: MA. Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai

In the 8 league stage matches played here, scoring has not been easy. Due to the slow nature of the pitch, even the best batsman found it difficult to get going. Besides this, there is a great advantage for spinners. So, there will be no surprise if both the teams include more spinners for this important match. 

Average 1st Innings Score: 167 runs

Average 2nd Innings Score:159 runs

Matches won by batting 1st: 32

Matches won by batting 2nd: 19

Weather Conditions

The humidity will be on the higher side (above 55 %) throughout the match. The temperature will be near about 35 degrees Celsius. According to reports, it will be partly cloudy throughout the match, but there are no chances of drizzle.

Team Analysis: Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians finished their league stage with a comprehensive win over Kolkata knight riders. The team will be aiming to repeat the same performance to become the first finalist of this season. As far as the team combination for this match is concerned, Ishan Kisan might be replaced by Evin Lewis. Other than him, the team might include Anukul Roy in place of Mitchell McClenagan. No other changes are expected other than this.

Team Analysis: Chennai Super Kings

Chennai Super Kings, on the other hand, lost their last league stage against Kings XI Punjab by a huge margin. Moreover, Kedar Jadhav will not be available for the team now due to shoulder injury. So, Dhruv Shorey might get an opportunity in place of him. Other than him, no other changes are expected for this match.
