  • CSK vs MI Dream11 Prediction

Chennai Super Kings is currently placed on bottom of the points table and has already beaten Mumbai Indians in opening match of IPL 2020


Before the start of Indian Premier League no one would have thought about such a pathetic condition of Chennai Super Kings. Last year runner up and three times IPL champions, CSK find themselves on 8th position which is a rare scenario. In 10 matches, they have just managed to win three and went on to loose rest seven. Only a miracle will ensure their position in top four which is looking unlikely to happen at the moment. 

Chennai Super Kings started their campaign on a higher note where they defeated defending champions in their opening match. Soon after that victory they seem to have lost their winning momentum. Almost half of team's players are on the verge of retirement. There is still a mathematical equation that might work in CSK favor. They will have to win all of their remaining fixtures and that too with a greater margin so that they get their net run rate in better position to qualify for the playoffs. 

Suresh Raina left the team before the beginning of tournament and his absence in middle order has resulted in team's poor performance. The main cause of concern for their poor show is the batting. Even on decent batting surfaces, CSK batsmen have failed to score runs. Apart from Faf du Plessis none other batsmen is looking responsible. Shane Watson is no more a big fish and has disappointed with his poor batting performances. 

Ambati Rayudu has got his starts but failed to convert those into a big score. MS Dhoni has lifted up team's spirit in fielding department with some fabulous catches behind the wickets but in terms of batting he is also struggling to score runs. Ravindra Jadeja has given vital contribution down the order but it's not sufficient even.

In terms of bowling, exclusion of Imran Tahir from the team is something unlikely that we have seen continuously throughout this tournament. Apart from Deepak Chahar, none other bowler is delivering consistent performances. Karn Sharma, Piyush Chawla are looking ordinary on slow pitches. So far nothing is going in Super Kings' favor. 

On the other hand defending champions, Mumbai Indians have performed just like champions after loosing their opening game. Mumbai Indians is packed with match winners in batting as well as bowling department. 

Skipper Rohit Sharma is not so consistent but his opening partner Quinton de Kock has scored back to back half centuries and will be high on confidence. Suryakumar Yadav is underperforming batsman but he has played sensible cricket. Down the order Mumbai looks very solid due to the presence of power hitters like Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya. The trio have scored quick runs and turned matches in MI's favor. In death overs, they have highest strike rate in terms of batting. 

Presence of Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult is enough to generate fear among opponent's batsmen. Trent Boult has consistently picked up wickets during the powerplay while Bumrah is a known specialist of bowling in death overs. Rahul Chahar and Krunal Pandya may not be renowned spinners but they have bowled brilliantly well during middle overs of the game. 

The way Mumbai Indians is performing, Chennai Super Kings will have to produce special team effort in order to claim victory over defending champions.
