In the 59th match of IPL 15, the teams of Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians will face each other at 7:30 pm. Talking about MI, they have won only 2 in 11 matches and have a net run rate of -0.894. CSK has also played 11 matches so far and won 4 matches. The net run rate of Chennai is +0.028. The encounter of these two teams running at the bottom of the points table has been very interesting every season.
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.
