MI vs CSK IPL -Mumbai Indians Avenge for a Replay Defeat in the Final of the Series

Mumbai Indian vs Chennai Super Kings (MI vs CSK)

The heat in the domestic cricket premier tournament, Indian Premier League (IPL) as two of the biggest franches, the Mumbai Indians (MI) and the Chennai Super Kings (CSK), fight it out for the bragging rights at the home of cricket, the Wankhede Stadium. Two teams, experiences of earlier downfalls notwithstanding, have managed to regain their winning touches, and here comes this match to be taken equally seriously.

MI is on a roll, and, therefore, CSK has to bend over backward to bring out the best of them in order to turn things around.

Mumbai Indians, with Hardik Pandya as their captain, coming out of two victories in a row and very much high on confidence, proceed to the game with their mood buoyant and fully charged up. When Suryakumar Yadav from the team scored a 50, it was a mirror of the white-hot batting mastery of the side. The blistering power of both Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma (if he plays), alongside Pandya’s power hitting, combined with Tim David’s finishing and Romario Shepherd’s skills, makes them a powerhouse to reckon with. The gethering five wickets of Jasprit Bumrah put their bowling unit on the better side.

Nevertheless, at the other end, Chennai Super Kings, with a great victory over KKR last time and aspiring to add another one to their collection, is going to put all the possible efforts to ensure that. The duo, lead by the excellent Tushar Deshpande and the steady Ravindra Jadeja gives the pace attack, consistency in their last match. Mustafizur Rahman would potentially be a part of the Line-up of Matheesha Pathirana, in case the latter remains unavailable. Nevertheless, CSK’s batting, at this stage, has to find a way to create a spark. The opening batters Ruturaj Gaikwad will play a key role in giving a most solid beginning. The young Rachin Ravindra will also be an important factor for a great total.

A Historic Rivalry Renewed

This encounter reminds the 32nd meet between these two IPL biggies. The two teams know each other inside out and give no quarter to each other, with the MI holding a tiny edge over CSK just by 20 wins to 16. The Wankhede Stadium is fondly known as the MI’s fortress where the screeners for supremacy will be in action. More importantly, they have the fans’ backing to put up a spirited performance.

To add more spice, the contenders are well set up along with their glorious past, this exciting IPL game is a matter of biting of nails. Given that Mumbai Indians registered back to back wins,Can they secure another win and make it three in a row? Or could MS Dhoni led CSK make Wankhede Stadium the place where diehard fans go to witness victory? Screen later this week, rock and roll.
