Fans can watch the Chennai Super Kings vs. Mumbai Indians match live online as two teams going in much different directions try to climb the IPL standings.
The Super Kings are looking to win their third match, while the Indians are trying to avoid losing for the third time.
The teams will face off at 8 pm Friday from Dubai International Stadium in Dubai.
For the Mumbai Indians, this is not the start of the 2014 season they had envisioned. After winning the IPL last year, the Indians opened the season with a blowout loss to the Kolkata Knight Riders followed by a seven-wicket defeat to Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Mumbai has managed a total of 237 runs in 40 overs, but have only been able to pick up eight wickets while giving up 279 runs in 37.3 overs.
Fans who watch the Chennai Super Kings vs. Mumbai Indians cricket match live online will see a CSK squad near the top of the standings and looking to climb even higher. After a big loss to Kings XI Punjab in the season opener, CSK has followed it up with big wins over the Delhi Daredevils and Rajasthan Royals.
Whether they can beat the Mumbai Indians could come down to Suresh Raina, the IPL match preview noted.
“The southpaw has all the elements needed to succeed in this format; he has all the shots in the book, has the power in his arms, has the gift of timing, isn’t afraid to take the aerial route and has the ability to play either the conservative game or shift gears and get stuck into the bowling,” the preview noted. “Simply put, Raina is the glue that holds the CSK batting line-up and gives freedom to Smith, McCullum and Dhoni to play their shots from the word go.”
