[simple-matches series_id=2514 upcoming=1 live= 0 completed = 0]
This is MI’s first game after their super-overs thriller against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP). While the unit led by Rohit Sharma finished second in that game, they have won six out of nine games and are in the top half of the points table.
CSK also comes into this game due to a loss to Rajasthan Royals (RR). In contrast to MI, they are currently in eighth place in the points table with a win/loss ratio of 3-7.
While MI will seek to consolidate their position in the top half, CSK will be keen to maintain their playoff hopes and secure their second win over MI this season.
Quinton de Kock
With 322 runs, Quinton de Kock is currently MI’s leading run-getter. The wicketkeeper batsman has scored three consecutive 1950s on batting and MI will be more than happy if he continues his tremendous form.
Kieron Pollard currently has a hit rate of 200 this IPL season. The great West Indian all-rounder has made 208 runs in 7 innings and entered this game because of his 12-ball-34-run flash (not out) against KXIP. He’ll itch to send a few balls out of the park when MI takes on CSK in Sharjah.
Ravindra Jadeja scored an unbeaten 35 in the CSK game against RR and was his team’s leading run-getter. In the previous game, the left-hander had toned 33 * of 13 balls against Delhi Capitals in Sharjah. CSK will expect him to continue his stroke form.
Jasprit Bumrah was fatal with the ball when MI faced KXIP. The pacemaker with the right arm selected three wickets before he only conceded five runs and selected two wickets in the first super over against KL Rahul and Co in the last game of MI. MI will rely on their bowling spearhead to do well against CSK.
Faf du Plessis
Faf du Plessis has scored in the 1940s and was CSK’s leading run-getter that season with 375 runs. The last CSK faced MI, Faf had an unbeaten half-century and the right-handed player will try to make another nice bet with the bat against MI.
