Mumbai Indians vs Chennai Super Kings Predictions


The Chennai Super Kings have been in superb form this season, winning five of their six matches. My best bet is for the Super Kings to continue this form by beating the Mumbai Indians.

  • Chennai Super Kings’ Faf du Plessis has scored 50+ in his last 3 matches.
  • Chennai Super Kings’ Faf du Plessis has scored over 25.5 runs in his last 5 matches.
  • Chennai Super Kings have won 5 of their last 6 matches.
  • Mumbai Indians have lost 3 of their last 6 matches.
  • Mumbai Indians’ Quinton de Kock scored 70 runs in his last match.

Head to Head


Mumbai Indians have won four of their last five matches against the Chennai Super Kings. When they last met in the 2020 IPL, the Mumbai Indians won by 10 wickets.

Mumbai Indians Form


The Mumbai Indians have been a bit inconsistent this year with three wins in their six matches. They currently occupy the fourth position on the table, four points off the three teams above them.

Last time out the defending champions started to show that they are returning to their best. They beat the Rajasthan Royals by seven wickets on a good batting wicket in Delhi.

A good bowling performance restricted the Royals to 171 runs with Jasprit Bumrah taking 1-15 in four overs. Quinton de Kock then found some form, scoring an unbeaten 70 off 50 balls. The Mumbai Indians cruised to a seven wicket win with nine balls to spare.

Mumbai Indians Injuries & Team News


The Mumbai Indians put in their best all round performance in the last match. They are likely to stick with the same lineup.

Chennai Super Kings Form


The Chennai Super Kings are at the top of the Indian Premier League table having won five of their six matches. They could be second by the time this game gets underway depending on other results.

Last time out the Super Kings beat the Sunrisers Hyderabad by seven wickets in Delhi. After keeping the Sunrisers to 171, Faf du Plessis (56) and Ruturaj Gaikwad (75) put on a 129-run opening stand. That was Du Plessis’ third consecutive score of 50+ runs.

The Chennai Super Kings got home with nine balls to spare to win by seven wickets. 

Chennai Super Kings Injuries & Team News


Lungi Ngidi returned to the side in the last match and took two wickets. He should retain his place unless the pitch is dry which would likely mean the recall of Imran Tahir.

Verdict

The Super Kings have won five of their six matches and are tipped to win this one as well. Faf du Plessis can be backed to continue his fine form in the best batsman market for both team and in the match after scoring 50+ runs in his last three matches.

Quinton de Kock scored 70 runs last time out for the Mumbai Indians. He is backed to be their best batsman.
