This time Chennai must be going for an experiment for the alternative of Suresh Raina who announced his complete retirement from all cricketing formats on 15th August. Also, Mumbai Indians should make some changes with regards to the pitch conditions if they bat first.

On summing up, it can be concluded both the teams may do some tactical changes in order to buckle up for the ‘El Classico of Indian Premier League‘. This year’s IPL is surely going to blast off with a cracking match.
