Rohit Sharma calls ‘MI V CSK’ the El Clasico of IPL

Throughout the history of the Indian Premier League (IPL), Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings have engaged in gripping battles which saw them establishing a highly rated rivalry. To further spice up the flavor, both franchises have won three editions of the biggest T20 extravaganza of India.

The two teams once again battled against each other in a fascinating contest where Mumbai brought their best game forward to dent the winning streak of Chennai.

Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma recently reflected on the biggest IPL rivalry as he compared it to the famous football El Clasico clash which is contested between Real Madrid and FC Barcelona. The 31-year-old added that all the players including the overseas stars are extra charged up when it comes to playing against Chennai.

“I’m not talking about fights, but the passion that we see in a Liverpool vs Man United game or you know the El Clasico, it is the same when Mumbai and Chennai play in India. And you can make out these things particularly from the overseas players,” said by the explosive batsman.
