MI vs CSK Today Match Prediction & Tips

Mumbai Indians vs Chennai Super Kings T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2024

Mumbai Indians will take on Chennai Super Kings in the 29th match of the IPL 2024. The game will be played at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai and will start at 7:30 PM IST on April 14.

Mumbai Indians have picked great momentum heading into the El Clásico against Chennai Super Kings. MI did not start well and lost the first three games but back to back wins over Delhi Capitals and Royal Challengers Bangalore have got their campaign back on track. 

Chennai Super Kings also returned to winning ways after they defeated KKR in the last game. The team had suffered defeats to Delhi Capitals and Sunrisers Hyderabad in the previous two games.

The tournament so far has been dominated by home teams. Both MI and CSK have won all their games at home so the Hardik Pandya-led side will have a physiological advantage against the defending champions.

On paper there is very little that separates the two teams but both MI and CSK have slight worries heading into the contest. MI’s concern will be their bowling that has looked ordinary. Bumrah has been sensational but he has lacked support from other end. For CSK, the top order has been inconsistent and the team has rallied on the performance of Shivam Dube. 

MI and CSK will be aware that they can’t afford to drop more points so early in the tournament and will have to give their best to come out on top. The previous matches between the two teams have delivered some cracking battles and the same will be on the cards when the two most successful IPL teams lock horns on Sunday.

MI Team News & Playing 11

MI Team News

Mumbai Indians have been on a two match winning run and there don’t seem to be any need of changing the winning combination. We are very much sure that Hardik Pandya would go in with a tried and tested combination against CSK.

MI Key Players

  • Ishan Kishan- Ishan Kishan has picked some form in last few outings. He scored a fiery 69 in 34 balls against RCB as MI cruised to a win. When on song, the left hander can be hard to stop and Hardik Pandya would hope that Kishan unleashes his best on CSK in coming game.
  • Suryakumar Yadav- Suryakumar Yadav made a roaring return to cricket after a long layoff and scored a 17-ball half century against RCB. Surya’s blazing start to IPL 2024 is a massive good news for the MI as he is someone who can alone win a tournament for a team.
  • Jasprit Bumrah- There can’t be a bigger match winner for MI than Bumrah. The star MI bowler rattled RCB with a five wicket haul that took him to the top of the table of most wickets in IPL 2024. Bumrah has been sensational, taking 10 wickets at an economy of less than 6.
  • Gerald Coetzee- Coetzee’s tournament has not been as good as Bumrah’s as he has been taken apart by teams. However, the South Africa pacer is a fierce competitor and will be eyeing a strong return against CSK. 

MI Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Dewald Brevis, Naman Dhir, Nehal Wadhera, Harvik Desai, Shreyas Gopal

Shreyas Gopal is likely to be picked as an impact player given his all-round abilities. MI need a quality spinner but Piyush Chawla’s fitness is not up to the mark. Gopal is likely to be MI’s impact player. If they need a batter, Nehal Wadhera or Naman Dhir can be picked.

MI Team Form

MI have played five games, winning two and losing three. The team has bounced back well after losing first three games.

MI Predicted Playing 11

Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan (wk), Tilak Varma, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya (c), Tim David, Romario Shepherd, Mohammad Nabi,  Jasprit Bumrah, Gerald Coetzee, Akash Madhwal

CSK Team News & Playing 11

CSK Team News

There won’t be much help on offer for spinners at Wankhede so CSK may drop Maheesh Theekshana and get in Matheesha Pathirana in the playing XI. No more changes should be there in the team unless someone picks up an injury ahead of the contest.

CSK Key Players

  • Rachin Ravindra- Rachin Ravindra is yet to fire but looking at him when he is at the crease makes us believe that a big innings is round the corner. He has looked assured and confident but somehow has failed to post a big score.
  • Shivam Dube-  Shivam Dube has been magnificent. He has set the stage on fire with 176 runs in five games at an average of 44 and a strike rate of 160. He has hit as many as 13 sixes in the tournament so far and Wankhede might not be big enough if he can middle a few deliveries. 
  • Ravindra Jadeja – Jadeja bowled a spell of 3-18 against KKR but conditions at the Wankhede Stadium will be very different from what he gets back home. He might not get that much turn but he can still trouble MI with his accuracy and pace variations. Also, he is a handy batter down the order.
  • Mustafizur Rahman- We have already seen that change of pace works well in T20 tournaments. Rahman has used it to his advantage and picked nine wickets in four matches so far in IPL 2024. He will be one of the most important players for CSK against MI.

CSK Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Moeen Ali, Sheikh Rashid, Mitchell Santner, Nishant Sandu, Deepak Chahar

CSK have been smart in using impact player. Mostly, Deepak Chahar will be used as an impact player as new ball can swing in Mumbai and Chahar can exploit the conditions. In case of a batter, CSK can use Shaik Rashid

CSK Team Form

CSK have done well at home, winning all three games but they have also lost both the away games.

CSK Predicted Playing 11

Ruturaj Gaikwad (c), Rachin Ravindra, Ajinkya Rahane, Daryl Mitchell, Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni (wk), Shardul Thakur, Tushar Deshpande, Mustafizur Rahman, Matheesha Pathirana

MI vs CSK Betting Odds

MI are getting the favourites tag. It will be a close game but MI are getting slightly favourable odds as they are playing at home.

Who will win Mumbai Indians vs Chennai Super Kings T20 Match?

We suggest backing MI to win. MI will be playing at home and that will be a big advantage. The Hardik Pandya-led side has picked comprehensive wins in last two games. Also, CSK rely a lot on their spinners who might not be very successful at Wankhede Stadium.

🏆 MI vs CSK Prediction

MI can be backed to win. The home advantage will be a big plus. Also, MI are a team when gets on a roll, can be very hard to stop. CSK have lost both the away games so far and will need a big performance from all their players to pull off a win. So far, only Shivam Dube has been consistent thus the task won’t be easy. We are backing MI to win.
