Both MI and CSK who are reeling at bottom of the points table will be facing each other at DY Patil Stadium, Mumbai. Mumbai are still searching for their first win of IPL 2022, while CSK have won their only match against RCB in this tournament so far. MI has been relying heavily on Suryakumar Yadav to perform consistently in all games while Kieron Pollard hasn't been utilized to his fullest of potential in the batting as he comes too lower down the order.
CSK's weak link of poor bowling attack has costed them two games despite the side having strong batting line-up. CSK is likely to replace Chris Jordan with Dwaine Pretorius and Ruturaj Gaikwad coming into form in previous match will be huge boost for the Chennai side.
CSK vs MI games have always provided riveting, nail-biting contests and today's match will be important one for both teams as loss for any of them might seriously affect their playoffs chance.
