IPL 2020 MI vs CSK: 6 star players to watch for in today's season opener in UAE

The IPL, the world's most popular cricket league, is set to kick off today in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. In today's opener, defending champions Mumbai Indians will take on last year's runners-up Chennai Super Kings.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni will return to competitive cricket through today's match in the IPL. Dhoni has not played competitive cricket since the semi-finals of the 2019 World Cup. Even so, he will be a key player today's game.
Fast bowler Deepak Chahar has emerged as the biggest matchwinner for the Chennai Super Kings in the last two seasons of the IPL. Chahar bowls in powerplay and his bowling is always a challenge for big batsmen. Chahar's performance is a key one for the 3-time champions.
Dwayne Bravo is key player for MSD. He can turn the tide of the match in favor of Chennai Super Kings through any means like batting, bowling and fielding. For Trinbago Knight Riders in the recently concluded Caribbean Premier League he was one of the star performers.
Rohit Sharma is key for Mumbai Indian's fortune this year both as skipper and player. Last year, Rohit had a stellar performance in Test, ODI and T20 cricket. Even now, Rohit will play for Mumbai Indians in the opener. Therefore, Mumbai expects the same from him this year as well.
All-rounder Kieron Pollard has always been a big matchwinner for the Mumbai Indians. In the recently concluded CPL, Pollard scored 207 runs with a strike rate of 204. Pollard has also done well against Chennai Super Kings over the years.
Mumbai Indians will be relying on India's leading bowler Jasprit Bumrah this year. Bumrah's bowling has always been a key to MI's success. In today's match Bumrah's four overs are going to be quite crucial.
