Here we go....Shane Watson and Faf du Plessis to start the CSK innings. Lasith Malinga with the ball for MI.
Rohit Sharma: "Yea, we would have batted first as well. Considering the nature of the surfaces of late, that's what we would have liked. We now have to prepare well for this. We do have a good record here but that doesn't matter much. Got to focus on our strengths and play good cricket tonight to come out on top. One change - Jayant Yadav in for Mitchell McClenaghan."
MS Dhoni: "We will bat first. I'm more of a process guy, like to break it down to simple things and focus on whoever we have to play. We don't think too much about the opposition, we rather would like to focus on our preparation. (Whether CSK have extra respect for MI) It would be a mistake if I say that we focus only on Mumbai Indians. This is the IPL and the competition is huge. If you have to do well in the IPL, we have to respect every opposition. Mumbai are a balanced side. One change for us - Murali Vijay in for injured Kedar Jadhav.

100th IPL game for Jadeja in CSK colour:
Pitch Report:"Doesn't look too different from the Chepauk surfaces that we've seen so far. However, there is a bit of sheen on it which could mean that the pitch is smoother than usual. With the amount of time available to groundsmen since the last home game, they might have managed to produce a better playing surface. But again, I don't think it's a track where 200 can be scored." - Sanjay Manjrekar
"If you can't win a game, you make sure you get the opposition to get the runs in most number of overs. (Qualifying for top 2) Yes, and that's something you have to keep in mind." - CSK skipper MS Dhoni said after losing to Kings XI Punjab in their final league game Final IPL standings after 56 league games: "It is something we know about the IPL that the business end matters, we always come back well in the second half of this tournament. In all the three trophies that we've won, the boys have picked themselves up in the business end. IPL is a funny tournament, any team can beat the other on a day and we want to take a few tiny steps." - Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma after finishing at the top of the points table Head to Head: MI vs CSK Hello and welcome to the live coverage of IPL 2019 Qualifier 1 between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings.
