Talking about the team changes, Mumbai who have nothing to lose will look to test their bench strength. MI have struggled in the season as there was no balance in the squad. All-rounders like Kieron Pollard and Daniel Sams have failed miserably this season. MI team mangement can look at Arjun Tendulkar for tonight's game.
On the other hand, CSK will go unchanged in the do-or-die match. Devon Conway's form was a big boost for the defending champions. Mukesh Choudhary will look to repeat his heroics from the last time MI faced CSK. Shivam Dube and Moeen Ali's form in the middle order will be crucial for Chennai to beat five-time champions.
