CSK vs MI Dream 11 Prediction: Chennai Super Kings
CSK are coming into this clash on the back of a gleaming win over DC. Batting first CSK posted a mammoth 208-6, thanks to a blistering 87 run knock by Devon Conway & 41 by Ruturaj Gaikwad. Later, DC was bowled out for just 117 with Mitchell Marsh hitting the most 25 runs. As a result, CSK won the clash by massive 91 runs to earn crucial two points.
By occupying the ninth position on the Points table, CSK are on the blink of elimination. If they want to stay alive in the Playoff race then they will have to win each of their upcoming matches & hope for other teams results to go in their way. However, if they lose any match from here then they will be officially out of the Playoffs stage joining the bottom lenders Mumbai Indians. The CSK team suffered a major setback ahead of this crucial clash as their all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has been ruled out of the remaining season due to a rib injury.
Whether the absence of Ravindra Jadeja will prove costly for CSK or beating all the odds they will emerge victorious against Mumbai Indians & keep their playoffs hopes alive, is what time will say.
CSK vs MI Dream 11 Prediction: Mumbai Indians
MI are heading into this clash on the back of a humiliating defeat over KKR in their previous clash. Batting first, KKR posted a decent 165-9 with Venkatesh Iyer (43), Nitish Rana (43), and Ajinkya Rahane (25) hitting good knocks. Later, KKR managed to defend the target by bowling out Mumbai Indians for just 113 & registering a massive 52 runs win to keep their playoff hopes alive.
Rohit Sharma-led MI are already out of the Playoffs contention with nine defeats & just one win in their kitty. This is their worst season in the history of the IPL as once the five-time defending Champions became the first team to disqualify from the IPL 2022 Playoffs race. They have nothing to lose & will look ahead to win this match to save their pride & spoil the chances of CSK qualifying for the Playoffs.
The bad news for Mumbai Indians franchise is that Suryakumar Yadav will miss the rest of the IPL 2022 due to a muscle strain that he has sustained in the match against Gujarat Titans. Will Mumbai Indians could save their pride by winning today’s clash or will succumb in front of CSK’s lethal attack is a wait & watch thing.
