Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians looked down and out in the initial phase of the tournament after they lost 3 matches on the trot. However, the team, led by Hardik Pandya, will be high on confidence after beating the Delhi Capitals (DC) and Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) in successive matches.

Against RCB, MI chased down 197 with 27 balls to spare after Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav scored half-centuries. Jasprit Bumrah, however, stole the limelight by picking up a 5-wicket haul.

The MI vs CSK prediction will depend a lot on how MI carry their form from their last 2 matches.

Mumbai Indians Possible 11: Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan (wk), Tilak Varma, Hardik Pandya (c), Tim David, Romario Shepherd, Mohammad Nabi, Shreyas Gopal, Jasprit Bumrah, Gerald Coetzee, Akash Madhwal

Rohit Sharma with unwanted record

Chennai Super Kings

Chennai Super Kings have looked dangerous when it comes to playing at the MA Chidambaram Stadium. However, the 5-time champions are yet to win a single away match, having lost both their games. They will go into the match after beating Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Chepauk. But since the upcoming game is an away fixture for them, the Super Kings need to up their game.

Mustafizur Rahman returned to the playing XI after sorting out his visa issues. It now remains to be seen if Matheesha Pathirana, who missed the last two games due to a niggle, returns or not. Ravindra Jadeja picked up 3 wickets against KKR, but he is expected to face a tougher challenge at the Wankhede.

The outcome of the MI vs CSK prediction will depend on how the CSK bowlers manage to keep the MI batters in check.

Chennai Super Kings Possible 11: Ruturaj Gaikwad (c), Rachin Ravindra, Ajinkya Rahane, Daryl Mitchell, Sameer Rizvi, Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni (wk), Shardul Thakur, Mustafizur Rahman, Tushar Deshpande, Maheesh Theekshana

Pitch report and expected weather conditions

The pitch at the Wankhede Stadium is expected to be an absolute belter. Bowlers would not have much room for error on a surface where batters can play big shots at will. Even if teams score in the range of 200-210, it would not guarantee them victory.

There is no chance of rain as of now in Mumbai. Temperatures will be around the 31-degree Celsius mark. The humidity will be in the 60s. Wind gusts of 39 km/h is likely to make it more comfortable for teams.

MI vs CSK Dream11 prediction

Our MI vs CSK Dream11 predictions for this match:

  • Wicketkeeper(s): Ishan Kishan
  • Batter(s): Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, Shivam Dube, Rachin Ravindra, Ruturaj Gaikwad
  • All-rounder(s): Ravindra Jadeja, Daryl Mitchell, Hardik Pandya
  • Bowler(s): Jasprit Bumrah, Mustafizur Rahman
  • Recommended captain: Shivam Dube
  • Recommended vice-captain: Suryakumar Yadav

Shivam Dube has been outstanding for the Super Kings in IPL 2024. In fact, he is their top run-getter, having racked up 176 runs from 5 games at an average of 44 and a strike-rate of 160 with a top score of 51 to his name. Experts have recently picked Dube to be a part of the Indian squad for the T20 World Cup bearing in mind his potential to play quality spin-bowling.

Suryakumar Yadav is our vice-captain in Dream11 teams. The right-handed batter recently returned from injury and did not take much time to show his class with the bat in hand. Against RCB, Suryakumar batted at No.3 and scored the second-fastest fifty this season off 17 balls. He played the unorthodox shots to good effect and took MI home.

MI vs CSK match prediction: Mumbai Indians to win

As per the MI vs CSK match prediction, Mumbai Indians will go into the game as favourites. MI looked out of sorts in their first 3 games, but wins in their last 2 matches have put them back on track. The Super Kings, in the meantime, are yet to win an away game and need to put their best foot forward.

MI vs CSK toss prediction: Mumbai Indians to win the toss and field first

As per the MI vs CSK toss prediction, teams should not be thinking twice before opting to field first after winning the toss. Teams defending targets at the Wankhede can end up having nightmares.

Player of the Match prediction: Suryakumar Yadav

Suryakumar Yadav looked destructive against RCB. He bagged a duck against the Capitals, but he made amends against the Challengers. Although he did not win the Player of the Match award in the previous match, he will be among the strong contenders to win it in the next game.
