We are into the 33rd game of the Indian Premier League 2022 and Mumbai Indians are yet to get off the mark. As they take on the Chennai Super Kings in this game, it would be an important contest for the two teams occupying the last two slots on the points table. MI went down against the Lucknow Super Giants in their last game while CSK also suffered a loss at the hands of Gujarat Titans coming here.
Mumbai Indians have a big problem up their sleeves. The side has lost all the six games it has played and needs to come out with a winning formula. Chennai’s run in the tournament hasn’t been too good either and both sides would desperately look for a win in this game. A loss here would end Mumbai’s hopes of making it to the next round. The stakes are high in this battle, and we expect this contest to go down the wire.
Rohit Sharma’s side would do best to forget the last six games. They haven’t found themselves in such a position in the past decade losing their first six games of the season. They went down against the Lucknow Super Giants in the last game by 18 runs, another miserable show from their bowlers. The side needs to win this game to keep the slightest of hopes alive for a place in the playoffs.
The opening pair of Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan must get their acts together and set up a good opening wicket stand. The middle-order has done well for the side, and they would look for runs from Suryakumar Yadav, Dewald Brevis, and Tilak Varma. Fabian Allen coming into the side has added to its depth and he would need to fire all cylinders along with Kieron Pollard in this game.
Tilak Varma and Jaydev Unadkat will have to get early wickets as the Chennai Super Kings have a strong batting line-up. The side would however be worried about the form of other bowlers who have failed to trouble the batsmen. Jasprit Bumrah, Murugan Ashwin, and Tymal have leaked runs and the side would need them to deliver in this game. Fabian Allen will have to bowl good spells in the middle overs for the side to overcome the challenge thrown at them by the CSK batsmen.

Ravindra Jadeja would be worried about the progress of his side. They have won just two games they have played and sit in the 9th position on the points table. The side comes here with a 3-wicket loss against the Gujarat Titans, a game they had in their bag but gave away with poor bowling towards the end of the innings. Their opponents are yet to win a game and Jadeja shall look to exploit this weakness and win this game here.
Ruturaj Gaikwad finally hit form in the last game and needs to set up a good partnership with Robin Uthappa. They haven’t got a good start in any of the games so far and this is a big worry for the side. In the middle order Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, and Shivam Dubey need to play freely with the side having impressive batting depth. Jadeja, MS Dhoni, and Dwayne Bravo have powerful striking abilities and they need to play strong hands down the order.
Mukesh Choudhary and Maheesh Theekshana bowled well in the last game, and they will need to come up with good spells at the start of the game. The rest of the bowling attack hasn’t been doing well and the side would need good spells from Bravo, Jadeja, and Ali who have years of experience in this format of the game. Chris Jordan has to check his line as his poor spells are hurting the side.
Top Batsman – Ruturaj Gaikwad
Top Bowler – Dwayne Bravo
Ravindra Jadeja (c), Robin Uthappa, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, Shivam Dube, MS Dhoni (wk), Dwayne Bravo, Chris Jordan, Maheesh Theekshana, Mukesh Choudhary

We expect to see a warm and humid evening in Mumbai on April 21. The wicket has played well so far in the season and batsmen have had a good time on this wicket. The ball is coming to the bat nicely allowing them to play their strokes easily. There is little margin of error for the bowlers and the side batting first would be looking at a score of over 180 runs in this game.
Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy is known for being a paradise for batsmen. The ball comes onto the bat nicely and we have seen big scores being made at this venue in the past. Fast bowlers have generally struggled at this venue as there is little for them. Spinners who use the dry surface well have enjoyed success.
The last few games have seen big scores being put on the board at this venue. Chasing scores is easy as the wicket remains the same in the second half of the game. The side winning the toss would look to bowl first and try and attempt to restrict the opposition to a small total.
Mumbai Indians need to get the monkey off their back. They come here with six consecutive losses and can’t afford to lose any more games here. Their bowlers will have to click as a unit for the side to win this game. The Chennai Super Kings have also had their problems. However, the team enjoys good depth in its batting line-up and this would put them slightly ahead in the game.
