Mumbai Indians to miss Lasith Malinga in this IPL edition
As per BCCI’s rule over the years, the defending champions and runners up of pervious year lock horns in the season finale. The Rohit Sharma’s men will take against MS Dhoni and company on 19th September at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. The Yellow Army would be walking with fire in their heart to avenge last year’s trauma, where MI registered a victory over the Chennai lot by just one run.
Both the teams are walking firmly after facing some major blows ahead of IPL 2020. Mumbai will be putting up their show in absence of star bowler Lasith Malinga, who pulled out of the season citing personal reasons. Speedster James Pattinson is all set to fill in his shoes.
CSK also had its rough phase when 13 members of their contingent tested positive, and they had to delay their outdoor sessions. Their miseries worsened when star player Suresh Raina and veteran Harbhajan Singh decided to pull out of IPL 2020 ahead of family commitments.
