Both MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina are synonyms to Chennai Super Kings for reasons well known!
As IPL 2018 table toppers CSK lock horns with defending champions Mumbai Indians in Match 27, the expectations, as usual, will be high on the two yesteryears superstars Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni. Both the CSK stars are on the cusp of achieving major cricketing milestones. CSK cricketer Suresh Raina (21,954 runs) needs to score 46 more runs to complete 22,000 in professional cricket. That is including all forms of cricket he has played, Test matches included. Suresh Raina with 3363 runs in 166 matches is the leading run-getter in the history of IPL.
On the other hand, MS Dhoni, who is in red-hot form this IPL season will be featuring in his 150th game as skipper for Chennai Super Kings, which is an applaudable feat, for sure. MS Dhoni was instrumental in taking CSK over the line in their last encounter against Royal Challengers Bangalore. MS Dhoni kept his cool to chase down a hefty 206. It happened in the last over and MS Dhoni seems to have reinvented his game this season which is paying fruitful dividends.
Also by the looks of it, Karn Sharma could get a game over Imran Tahir. This picture drops hints.

Meanwhile, today’s clash is more important for Mumbai Indians who are languishing at the last place in the points table. They need to win 7 out of their last 8 matches to get to the magic score of 8, to make the cut. That happens or not remains to be seen.
