Former India spinner, Harbhajan Singh has recently equated Mumbai Indians vs Chennai Super Kings clash to that of an India-Pakistan clash.
Both these teams are heavyweights in the IPL and fans watch this game with great excitement with the ground becoming electric when these two teams meet.
Additionally, both these teams also have some top names in their squads such as MS Dhoni, and Rohit Sharma to name a few.
Already these two teams have met for the 12th game of the IPL this year where Mumbai Indians lost to Chennai Super Kings.
They will now meet once again in a return fixture in Chennai in due course of the tournament.
According to Harbhajan, when you are a part of any of these two teams, you need to perform your very best and ensure that your team wins.
Says Harbhajan on his YouTube channel,
These are two of the best teams in IPL. And the match is taking place at Wankhede Stadium, where it is very difficult to beat MI. Both are big teams; one has 5 trophies, another has four. When these two teams meet, the atmosphere is similar to an India vs Pakistan clash.
Adding further, he says,
I’ve been a part of a number of such matches in the past. If you want to be a big player, you’ve got to perform in such games. I feel it would be better if Dhoni promotes himself up the order here. This is a match for big names. I’m expecting Rohit will also shine in this game.
Mumbai Indians remain winless after clash at Wankhede
On the other hand, Mumbai Indians got a shocker of a defeat when Chennai Super Kings beat them at their home.
Chennai easily chased down the target of 158 quite easily with 11 balls to spare with contributions from Rahane, Gaikwad, and Shivam Dube.
Now, Mumbai Indians have lost two games in a row and will now be looking for a win tomorrow against the Delhi Capitals at Arun Jaitley Stadium.
In their previous game, they lost to Royal Challengers Bangalore by 8 wickets in their opener.
