Chennai Super Kings have won the toss and have opted to field
MS Dhoni – ‘We will bowl first. There will be some dew later on, it’s a good batting surface. It feels nice to be back in yellow, but we can’t be emotional. Starting well is important. Wood, Tahir, Bravo and Watson are the four overseas players today.
Rohit Sharma – Happy to bat first, we were bowling as well. Fresh wicket, should be plenty of runs on offer. We have prepared very well, we have come together as a group. It’s time to perform. What we have done in the past doesn’t matter a lot, we will have to start afreash. CSK play well as a team, we have got four bowlers, two genuine all-rounders in the Pandya brothers. McClenaghan, Bumrah and Mustafizur are our pace options, Mayank Markande is the new guy in our team, heard good things about him.
Mumbai Indians (Playing XI): Evin Lewis, Ishan Kishan(w), Rohit Sharma(c), Hardik Pandya, Mayank Markande, Kieron Pollard, Suryakumar Yadav, Krunal Pandya, Mitchell McClenaghan, Mustafizur Rahman, Jasprit Bumrah
