Two big stars of Indian cricket will step on the field with their respective teams. Rohit Sharma's Mumbai Indians will lock horns against M.S Dhoni's Chennai Super Kings.
The 27th match of IPL 2021 will be played between defending champions Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings from 07:30 pm today at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi.
Both teams will face each other for the first time this season. Whenever the teams of Chennai and Mumbai are face to face in the IPL, the thrill reaches its peak.
Even though Mumbai Indians have won the title five times in the history of IPL, but Chennai Super kings is looking heavy this season. Chennai, ranked number 1 in the point table, has won five matches in six matches this season, while Mumbai's team has been able to win only three matches in six matches. However, both the teams have won their previous matches and both will step on the field with a positive attitude.
Mumbai's strength is their strong batting, but the team's middle-order has not done well so far this season. At the same time, Chennai is performing brilliantly in every department this year. However, if Chennai has to maintain its winning momentum, they should be ready to deal with the pacer duo of Jaspreet Bumrah and Rahul Chahar. At the same time, Mumbai will have to overcome the challenge of Ravindra Jadeja and Faf du Plessis.

Only two matches have been played during this season at Delhi's Arun Jaitley Stadium and the chasing team has won on both occasions.
Although Delhi's pitch is considered to be favourable for spinners, but this season, the pitch is proving to be suitable for batsmen. The pitch was absolutely flat, in the last match too. A high scoring match can be seen today as well. Dew will prove to be an important factor here too, the team that wins the toss first is likely to bowl first.
Our match prediction meter is telling us that CSK have an upper hand in this match; however, the match is expected to be exciting.
