Ayaz Memon tweets, "some figthback by Mumbai in the circumstances. At one point Chennai looked headed for 190. But 174 still a daunting target."

Chennai have managed a challenging total on the board after being sent in to bat. They could have got 15-20 more but Mumbai pulled back things a touch towards the end. Malinga picked up 3 to reach 20 wickets for the season. Join us back for an interesting chase.

19.6 L Malinga to R Ashwin, OUT! Malinga gets his third and is now the leading wicket-taker in the season. Bowls a short one, around middle, Ashwin looks to pull and gets a top edge high in the air towards mid-wicket. Harbhajan settles under it. 173/8

Ayaz Memon tweets, "bhajji has chosen to field first. Surprise since teams batting secind have struggled at the Wankhede."

Mumbai - James Franklin, Sachin Tendulkar, Rohit Sharma, Ambati Rayudu, Dinesh Karthik(Wk), Dwayne Smith, Robin Peterson, Harbhajan Singh(C), Lasith Malinga, RP Singh, Munaf Patel.

Chennai - Murali Vijay, Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni(Wk/C), Ravindra Jadeja, Albie Morkel, Dwayne Bravo, S Badrinath, Ravichandran Ashwin, Shadab Jakati, Ben Hilfenhaus.

Toss - Mumbai have won the toss and elected to field. Two changes for them as RP Singh and Dwayne Smith replace Pragyan Ojha and Thisara Perera. Chennai have an unchanged side.

Mumbai are currently sitting third in the table with 12 points from 10 games. A spectacular bowling performance in the last match saw them defend a paltry 120 against Pune at the Subrata Roy Sahara Stadium. After two hard fought victories against Hyderabad and Pune, Mumbai will be looking to settle down. Chennai, on the other hand, have had a roller-coaster ride having won 5 and lost 5 from 11 matches with one game washed out. They finally got a much needed victory in the last match against Hyderabad following two losses on a trot against Mohali and Kolkata. They would be looking to continue the winning momentum as a win here will take them to the third spot in the table. A cracker of a contest is definitely on cards.
