Overall Match Prediction: CSK vs MI
In the first game of the IPL 2020 tournament, the CSK emerged out to be the boss but later after, they lost continuous games and are now sitting at the bottom of the table. Mumbai Indians, after the first loss, balanced their team and improved their performance to be in the top 2 positions on the table. Mumbai will definitely want to pay back in this game and stand on the top position. Chennai is struggling to stay in the tournament with just 6 points in hand but will try to recreate the magic like the first game.
