The most successful teams of the IPL, the Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians will lock horns at the Chepauk on Friday. With eight wins from 11 matches, the Super Kings have more or less confirmed their playoffs berth. Another win from here on will help CSK to finish in the top two positions. On the other hand, the Mumbai Indians won six of the ten matches they played. Due to the high NRR, the MI team might finish in the final four if they win even one more but need at least two to be on the safer side.
