The First Match
The opening fight for IPL 2020 is set between Mumbai Indians (MI) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK), both having the highest brand values and strong loyal fans. MI has already won four titles since the inception, whereas the CSK has done it thrice. Though there are several setbacks for CSK initially like Suresh Raina leaving the tournament and even Harbhajan Singh, it still excites the fans to see the just retired MS Dhoni on the field.
