Indian Premier League 2018 27th T20: CSK Vs MI Live Scores from Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Pune. There has been a lot of debate about the use of Kieron Pollard by the Mumbai Indians and rightly so. He has not bowled at all this season and has barely spent time with the bat in the middle. The fact that he has only bowled 7.5 overs in the IPL since May 24, 2015 makes him a specialist batsman.

Match Preview:

The last time these two teams met was the inaugural match of the season – a match which will be remembered for Dwayne Bravo’s batting heroics and Kedar Jadhav’s finishing act! Since then a lot has happened. While the Mumbai Indians (MI) have been at the wrong end of last over finishes and languish at the seventh position of the points table, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have had the exact opposite going their way. A scenario which has brought agony for Rohit Sharma has been a source of joy for MS Dhoni!
