With skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni in red-hot form, Team Chennai will start as favourites against the slightly off-colour Mumbai when the IPL's two most successful teams have their first showdown of the season on Wednesday.

Recent history in head-to-head clashes is in Mumbai's favour, as the Rohit Sharma-led home team has beaten their rivals in four out of the last five contests.

However, Chennai seem to hold the edge this time around, especially with Dhoni rolling back the years with a typically robust 75 off 46 balls that lifted his team from 27 for three to 175 for five against Rajasthan Royals at home in their last match.
