Teams Preview

Mumbai Indians Preview

MI batters enjoyed their outing in Delhi with Quinton De Kock (70* runs) and Krunal Pandya (39 runs) amongst the runs. Rohit Sharma, SuryaKumar Yadav, and Kieron Pollard played good cameos to build partnerships and keep the momentum going in their favor. Hardik Pandya is due for a big score and will be eager to contribute to the team.

Their bowling unit restricted the opposition to below par score with Jasprit Bumrah leading from the front with figures of 4-0-15-1 despite bowling 2 overs in death. Trent Boult and Rahul Chahar claimed crucial wickets and bowled superbly. Nathan Coulter Nile and Jayant Yadav were slightly on the expensive side with the ball last night.

Top players to bet on:

Surya Kumar Yadav – SKY as mad just 10 runs so far in this season but has shown he intent the bat every match. He will look to make a big score and help his team post a massive total in this match.

Jasprit Bumrah – Bumrah has just 5 wickets so far but his economy rate of just 5.9 RPO despite bowling in the death overs is other worldly. He will be big orce to reckon against the strong CSK batting unit in this match.

Mumbai Indians Predicted Playing XI:

Quinton de Kock (wk), Rohit Sharma (c), Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Ishan Kishan, Rahul Chahar, Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult

Chennai Super Kings Preview

CSK openers Faf Du Plessis (58 runs), and Rituraj Gaikwad (75 runs) made the chase look easy with their 129-run partnership. Moeen Ali and Ravindra Jadeja have been CSK`s aggressor`s in the final overs so far. Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, and MS Dhoni are yet to make a big contribution with the bat.  

CSK bowlers were phenomenal in the match barring the last 3 overs where they leaked 45 runs. Sam Curran, Lungi Ngidi, Moeen Ali, and Ravi Jadeja did not allow any momentum with tight line and lengths.  Shardul Thakur is not having a good season while Deepak Chahar have been hot and cold in the matches so far.

Top players to bet on:

Rituraj Gaikwad – Gaikwad was phenomenal with his classic batting display scoring 75 runs off 44 balls. He was severe on the spinners in the middle overs and will look to continue it against MI bowlers too.

Ravi Jadeja – Jadeja has been on his prime now and will have a huge role against Mi`s big hitters in the middle overs. He will also have to deal with 3 lefties in the MI`s batting line-up.   

Chennai Super Kings Predicted Playing XI:

Ruturaj Gaikwad, Faf du Plessis, Moeen Ali, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Sam Curran, Shardul Thakur, Lungi Ngidi/Dwayne Bravo, Deepak Chahar

Weather Conditions

Delhi will have bright sunshine with hot and humid weather in the early 30s on the match day. Dew might settle in and trouble the bowlers in the latter stages of the match.

Venue Details

Delhi Pitch has been a good track to bat on with little bit of assistance to seam bowlers early in the match. Run scoring is fairly easy comparing the sluggish Chennai pitch. We expect teams to score around 180-190 runs on this pitch.  

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing the score both these teams won their last encounter here. Any score less than 180 runs will be tough to defend on this track.

MI vs CSK Winning Prediction

CSK has a great depth in their batting line-up which gives their top order to play freely and express themselves.  Their bowling and fielding was phenomenal last night but they lack a bowler who brings the X-factor in their playing XI. MI will be relived after their middle order`s contribution and De Kock`s big score last game. Their bowling relies heavily on Bumrah and Rahul Chahar to take wickets. Other bowlers need to step up and contribute to the team. We expect CSK to win this owing to their recent form and momentum.

CSK will win the match
