Mumbai Indians will be keen to start their title-defence on a winning note. On the other hand, the Super Kings would be desperate to make a winning return to the league.
They are making a comeback to the league after two years. In 2015, the Super Kings received a two-year ban from the court on corruption charges. Both the teams have enjoyed a great rivalry over the years.
And it is safe to say the fans are looking forward to seeing these two teams in action against each other again.
