MI vs CSK pitch report: Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings are set to revive historic rivalry in the 29th match of the Indian Premier League 2024 at Wankhede Stadium on Sunday. Both teams shared 10 IPL trophies between them and are mounting a title challenge for the record sixth title this season.

After losing the first three games in a row, Mumbai Indians registered two big wins in the last two matches at home. They chased down a 197-run target against Royal Challengers Bengaluru with seven wickets and 27 balls remaining with an impressive all-round performance.

On the other hand, Ruturaj Gaikwad-led CSK returned to winning ways by beating high-flying Kolkata Knight Riders in their last game at home. Chennai's all three wins of the 2024 season have come at home as they look for their first away win of the season at Wankhede Stadium. Mumbai lead the head-to-head record against Chennai but have won just one of the last five encounters between the two giants.
