Defending champions Mumbai take on table-toppers Chennai in a mouth-watering Indian T20 League 2021 clash at the Arun Jaitley Stadium on Saturday, May 1.

The Rohit Sharma-led side seems to have rediscovered their mojo on a batting-friendly surface in Delhi after the Chennai leg saw them lose three of their five matches.

With three wins and three defeats in six games, Mumbai are currently placed fourth in the points table.

On the other hand, Chennai have recorded five consecutive wins after losing their opening encounter to Delhi.

MS Dhoni and his men will look to extend their unbeaten streak in the ongoing edition of the high-profile league.

However, Mumbai have always dominated Chennai in the Indian T20 League, winning 18 of the 30 matches played between these two successful sides.

Furthermore, Mumbai have won four of their last five matches against Chennai in the Indian T20 League.
