Mumbai Indians haven't got on the points table yet in IPL 7, having been blanked in both their matches so far; and their task isn't going to get any easier as they face a peaking Chennai Super Kings.

Mumbai's batting is more to blame for their disastrous start as they have managed totals of just 122 and 115 in their two attempts so far.

After an upset defeat against Kings XI Punjab, where they failed to defend 205, CSK first brushed aside Delhi Daredevils with a record margin of 93 runs and then edged Rajasthan Royals by 7 runs in a close finish.
