CSK vs MI Dream11 Prediction: It’s El-Classico time once again as Chennai Super Kings (CSK) meet Mumbai Indians (MI) at the Chepauk Stadium for match number 49 of the Tata Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023. CSK will lock horns against MI on 6th May in the first fixture of the Saturday doubleheader, which will begin at 3:30 PM IST.
Mumbai Indians (MI) have never been an early riser in the history of the IPL. They have a knack for starting up lethargically and then coming with all their might and main to dismantle the opposition and bag five IPL titles. Similar patterns are seen in the ongoing season of the IPL, as MI find themselves in the mid-table mess after winning five games.
On the other side, although Chennai Super Kings (CSK) started off with a defeat, they managed to mend things back to normal with a win in the second game itself. CSK are the early trendsetters of the IPL and have a pretty stable position in the points table.
However, what pulls them back is their winless past. CSK are yet to win a game since their heroics against KKR. Their last fixture didn’t produce a result and the teams had to share points between them.
CSK’s bowling firepower seems to lack the mettle as they are moving forward in the business end of the IPL 2023. The bowlers have leaked runs in the death overs. Seasoned pacer Deepak Chahar was back into the side for a game against LSG, but he went on to leak 41 runs in four overs without a wicket.
Meanwhile, MI have somehow made their way in the league with their middle-order breathing fire and doing the extra work for the skinny bowling unit. The likes of Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Tilak Verma, Tim David and Cameron Green are all having a ball of a time.
If we go with the history and stats, CSK, although, has managed to secure its fortress, MI have single-handedly dethroned them in the past six encounters at this venue. MI have a 6-2 win-loss record at Chennai’s MA Chidambaram Stadium.
