Current Form: Chennai Super Kings
The Chennai Super Kings registered their first win of the season over Royal Challengers Bangalore. It was in the fifth game that they finally managed to break the losing rut. The win ignited hopes of a turnaround. But they lost their next game too. CSK famously staged a stunning comeback to oust Mumbai Indians. With two wins in 7 games, fans still believed it could be done.
But the initial phase of the next half wasn’t great either. CSK’s inconsistency kept pegging them back. They lost a couple of games they should have ideally won. CSK lost to RCB in a hard-fought game. They were bossing the match at one stage but went on to lose the game. CSK put in a terrific performance though against DC to win convincingly. They are better placed as compared to Mumbai at this stage.
Current Form: Mumbai Indians
It has been an unusual season for the Mumbai Indians. They started off the losing note as they always do. Everyone had brushed their defeats away as history has shown how Mumbai has always bounced back. But 2022 was something else. Mumbai Indians became the first team to lose its first eight games. They couldn’t just win a single game. MI lost from seemingly impregnable positions. Their tournament was as good as over at the halfway stage of the tournament.
Mumbai registered their first win of the season in their ninth game. It was a hard-fought win over Rajasthan Royals. MI followed it up with a thrilling win over table-toppers, Gujarat Titans. Their fans went delirious as MI looked good for a series of wins. But MI soon lost to KKR and lost quite badly. After 11 games, MI just has two wins. It is their worst season ever and there are three games to go for them.
