CSK vs MI: Match Preview
Bumrah can wreak havoc once again
Mumbai Indians are bearing the brunt of not choosing the right players in the auction. There was no point in spending exorbitant amounts on Ishaan Kishan. Due to this, the team became weak in terms of fast bowlers. Jasprit Bumrah did not seem to be in rhythm in the early matches. As a result, the team craved wickets in the powerplay and death overs.
However, in the last match, Bumrah took 5 wickets for just 10 runs against KKR. His return to form can prove to be helpful in helping the team win against Chennai. Rohit Sharma became a victim of a wrong decision against Kolkata. Hitman can be seen making every effort to fulfill his loss in today's match.
The effect of change in captaincy is visible
Ever since the captaincy change has taken place in the captaincy of Chennai Super Kings, the team is showing a great game, Mahendra Singh Dhoni is finally coming and batting with a bang. Rituraj Gaikwad and Devon Conway are giving the team a good start.
In the bowling, the legendary batsmen are also seen getting trapped in the spin trap of Moeen Ali and Mahesh Thikshana. Chennai has been troubled by the lack of better options in the fast bowling attack. The lack of fast bowlers against Mumbai can also miss him.
CSK Probable XI: Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devon Conway, Robin Uthappa, Shivam Dube, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni, Moeen Ali, Dwayne Bravo, Maheesh Theekshana, Simarjeet Singh, Mukesh Choudhary
MI Probable XI: Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan, Tilak Varma, Ramandeep Singh/Anmolpreet Singh, Tim David, Kieron Pollard, Daniel Sams, Murugan Ashwin, Kumar Karthikeya, Jasprit Bumrah, Riley Meredith
