Dube and Suryakumar are extremely instrumental to their team's success. While Dube is enjoying a career resurgance with CSK, Surya on the other hand has been the pillar of MI's success since rejoining the franchise back in 2018 after a brief stint from 2012-13 and a three-year stint with Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) from 2014-17.

Mumbai [India], : As the Indian Premier League arch-rivals Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians meet in the high-stakes match at the Wankhede Stadium, all eyes will be on two of league's biggest hitters, Shivam Dube from the Yellow Army and Suryakumar Yadav from the Blue and Gold side.
