CSK vs MI Match Preview of 44th IPL Match
Undoubtedly the most crucial fixture of this year’s IPL where Chennai Super Kings will be looking to strengthen their position as they have already qualified for the playoffs and Mumbai Indians will be looking to increase their lead over half of the teams who are chasing them for a spot in the playoffs.
MI vs CSK is considered as the biggest rivalry in Indian Cricket as CSK have been always lethal in their backyard and Mumbai Indians were the ones who ended their winning streak in 2015 courtesy of a jaw-dropping known from Hardik Pandya.
Super Kings are enjoying the season more than any other team as every player is looking in great touch and Watson has also found his form back on the other hand, Mumbai Indians had a mixed start but now they are finding their way back to glory as Rohit is back in form.
Questions were raised on CSK as Dhoni had to rescue them on several occasions but their last match bashed all those questions and sent all the fingers back which were pointed at them as Watson sent every bowler out of the park and their middle order also performed as they chase 175 against a star-studded bowling line-up of Sunrises Hyderabad without Dhoni coming to bat.
If we see a head to head of CSK vs Mumbai, the Ambani’s men outclass them as they have managed to win five of the seven meetings.
If we see the current form, CSK are the favourites but only if they manage to get rid of Mumbai’s openers as both of them are capable of taking their team to victory single-handedly. The biggest worry for Mumbai Indians is their middle-order as they have failed to perform throughout the tournament.
On the other hand, Chennai have destroyed every opponent they have come across so far. Their batting line-up is in form and their bowling is also helping them defending their totals.
So Watson, Quinton and Rohit will be the players to watch but if you see the cards and form, Chennai might see themselves as easy win against Mumbai Indians.
