CSK vs MI Match Preview
CSK vs MI: The most awaited clash of the IPL 2021 is here! Mumbai Indians will come into a face-off with the Chennai Super Kings in match 27 of the IPL 2021 at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi.
CSK has been the most successful team of this season winning five matches out of six matches being played. They are coming into today’s clash by riding on the back of an exclusive win over SRH & sealing victory in today’s match will put CSK on the top of the IPL 2021 Playoffs race.
CSK’s openers Ruturaj & FAF Du Plessis have batted extremely well this season & have dominated opponent’s spinners & pacers both. Ruturaj Gaikwad has also come well after facing a tough start to his campaign. CSK’s balanced squad will give a tough competition to defending Champions Mumbai Indians. CSK’s collapsing with the bat against Mumbai Indians has been a trend. But in this season CSK’s in-form batting lineup with depth could dominate Mumbai Indians in today’s match. CSK’s bowling attack has been crisp this season & their restricted bowling attack could easily limit the MI’s batting lineup to score big.
Meanwhile, MI had a tough start to their campaign by winning just two matches out of five matches they have played in Chennai. Chepauk pitch is the surface on which MI has struggled to deliver & emerge victorious. In the previous match against RR, MI have ended their two games losing streak by defeating RR by massive seven wickets & found their mojo back.
Quinton De Kock is performing well for the defending Champion so his fight with the CSK bowlers could be the highlight of today’s contest. Dropping Ishan Kishan can give MI more bowling options to explore however it would be interesting to see if the Defending Champions chose to bring back Ishan considering his good record against CSK. CSK vs MI is often the most enthralling clash of the IPL tournament. So CSK coming into a face-off with MI today could be a high dose of entertainment for all those IPL fans!

CSK vs MI Match Prediction:
Though CSK have a better campaign this season an MI squad in favourable condition could be more than a handful.
