The rivalry shared between the Mumbai Indians (MI) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) is arguably the greatest amongst franchises in any T20 League over the years. The arrival of players from these two sides on to the pitch while facing off, is greeted with a wave of applause and supreme excitement, in anticipation of a glorious cricketing duel. MI skipper Rohit Sharma further went to the extent of terming the rivalry shared between the two sides as nothing short of an 'El-Clasico', which is an indication of the respect commanded by the fixture.
The battle is set to extend to the auction table with some of the best in the business available for acquisition. One can very well expect a bidding war to take place, which will be of much excitement to fans, critics and audiences from all over the world:
