The Wankhede Stadium and its wonderfully familiar confines have been heaven-sent for the defending champions, who are on a two-match winning streak after losing their first five matches in the UAE.
MI know the importance of keeping the winning run going in order to push themselves up into that top-four position, and a third straight win on Saturday will do nicely.
"We have to continue to play the way we are playing, and we know how to play on our home ground," MI skipper Rohit Sharma said. "We are already on a winning streak at home and we would look to take the same level of confidence into the next match.
"In the two games we have played at Wankhede Stadium, we have executed our plans well. We will have our own set of plans for the Chennai Super Kings, and we will see how it goes.
"We want to take this as another game in the competition. We do not want to think too much about the opposition. We have played CSK a lot of times in the past and we realise that it is a very important game for us.
"They have some great match-winners in their side, and it will be a good contest when we play them tomorrow. The last time CSK was here, we beat them comprehensively, and we will try and do that again."
The match between last year's finalists will also be important for CSK, who are smarting from a heavy defeat at the hands of the Kings XI Punjab on Wednesday. The Chennai Super Kings bowlers could not stop the KXIP batsman from taking the game away, conceding a massive 231 runs, and with it pretty much ending their hopes of taking top place from Kings XI for the moment.
The loss hasn't changed their position too much, as they still lie second, two points ahead of the Rajasthan Royals; but the need for a win on Saturday is paramount in order to make sure they strengthen that top-two place, an important aspect as it gives you two bites at the cherry of sealing a final place.
"All we are concentrating on is staying around the top two and winning tomorrow against the Mumbai Indians to maintain the pressure on the teams below us," CSK coach Stephen Fleming said on Friday. "We have gone on and won six, which has put us in a good position. But we know the next few games are important because the tables can turn quickly.
"We have not over-analysed our performance [against KXIP], but we do know that we need to bounce back and play well against the Mumbai Indians. We need to try and get another win under our belt."
