Both the teams CSK and Mi had a decent first-half journey in IPL 2021 and would hope to benefit from their force. After a deviation in IPL 2020, CSK restored themselves with satisfaction and are sitting at second place on the points table.
Keeping to the side Mumbai’s apprehended record in opening games, MI have a solid opportunity to dominate this match. A group with probably the best combination, MI have every one of the players at their removals and are spoilt for decisions. With 250 runs in 7 IPL games, Rohit Sharma will be a player to look out for in the MI camp.
Sam Curran and Faf Du Plessis are inaccessible for this game because of quarantine and injury layoff. CSK will have a somewhat less-threatening group than what they had in the first part of the competition. With the pitches at the Dubai International Stadium preferring pacers, Chennai would fancy getting both Josh Hazlewood and Lungi Ngidi to reinforce their speed battery.
