Mumbai Indians will be squaring up against Chennai Super Kings in the 27th match of IPL 2021 at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi. The match will commence on Saturday, May 1 at 07:30 PM IST. Here is MI vs CSK Dream11 predictions, preview, squad, and predicted XI.
MI vs CSK Dream11 Predictions: Preview
Mumbai Indians played their first 5 games at the Chepauk, Chennai. They seem to have mastered the art of playing on these slow low wickets. MI ran RCB close in their opening game and then went on to defeat KKR and SRH. The defending champions had notched up 4 points without even playing their best cricket. They went on to lose a close game against DC.
The defeat to DC felt an aberration but PK defeated them convincingly and the gaps started getting wider in MI’s arsenal. Their batting apart from Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav has failed to click. Rahul Chahar has been their standout bowler but their bowling too in general has lacked discipline. MI will be keen to iron out all their flaws going into the 2nd phase of the league. The conditions at Delhi surprisingly aided stroke making and this helped MI. They cruised to a 7-wicket win over RR. MI will carry this confidence against CSK.
CSK 2.0 in IPL 2021:
CSK began the tournament on a slightly slippery note. They posted a good total against DC but failed to defend that. CSK came back strongly in the 2nd game and blew away PK. They picked up crucial wickets in the powerplay to dent PK’s innings. CSK put a dominant performance in the game against RR. They comfortably won against them and stormed to the 2nd spot in the points table. CSK boast of having the best Net Run Rate among teams currently. Their experienced outfit has mastered the conditions at Mumbai smartly.
CSK are one of the most balanced teams in the IPL. They are on a roll and even a spirited KKR fightback couldn’t stop them from winning. CSK demolished RCB in their last game at the Wankhede. The men in yellow went on to defeat SRH convincingly. They are the table toppers and look unstoppable.
