Mumbai: Former India batsman and cricket commentator Sanjay Manjrekar says Mumbai Indians have a slight edge over the Chennai Super Kings as they are emerging as a team that is threatening Dhoni-led team in the last few years.
Mumbai Indians have lifted IPL championship four times 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2019. During these four tournaments they have won in the finals against CSK.
"The IPL has been going on for about 12 years, and when we look at winning percentage, which is a good way of looking at teams, a good winning record, CSK is right up there, but of late, there's been a surge by Mumbai Indians coming through the ranks, winning titles as well," Manjrekar said on Star Sports' show Cricket Connected.
"MI have won four, CSK has won three but they have played less IPL. When you look at that, Mumbai Indians is emerging as a team that is threatening CSK in the last few years, they have actually been the better team than CSK, couple of IPL titles to MI," former batsman said.
"When MI come to the final, they tend to win it, CSK not as much. When you look at the entire IPL, CSK go first, but of late, may be Mumbai Indians have a slight edge,"Manjrekar said.(UNI)
