Sights firmly set on a hat-trick of titles, defending champions Chennai Super Kings will open their campaign against last year’s Champions League Twenty20 winner Mumbai Indians in the inaugural match of the Indian Premier League V today.

The season’s opener at the M A Chidambaram stadium could not have got any better as two of the strongest teams in the tournament will set the tone for the high-octane Twenty20 tournament over the next eight weeks.

Banking on their home advantage which enabled them to win back-to-back titles, the Chennai outfit, led by Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, will be hoping for their third consecutive IPL crown.

Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, will be under a new captain in Harbhajan Singh after Sachin Tendulkar relinquished the position yesterday.
