Mumbai Indians look to upset plans
- Mumbai out of contention for playoffs
- Chennai don’t have much to lose
Chennai Super Kings have notched up the most 200-plus totals in IPL 2022. However, things have just not gone their way as reflected from their below-par season… The MS Dhoni-led side could be without Ravindra Jadeja, who is reportedly out of the entire tournament. CSK’s chances of winning the title stand at 1.80
Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, have already been knocked out of the tournament, but historically, they have done decently against Chennai Super Kings. They have odds of 2.00 to win this match.
What happened earlier…
CSK won by three wickets when these teams met earlier in the season. Mumbai’s openers were dismissed for ducks and the middle-order misfired as they went on to put up a below-par total. CSK then went on to chase down the target with three wickets to spare as MS Dhoni pulled off an all-time classic.
CSK have been the better side this IPL and are favourites to win this match.Recommended Bet by 10CRIC
The match could be decided by how Mumbai Indians manage to keep the CSK opening pair of Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway quiet. The two have put up on 50-plus stands in three successive games, with two of them converted to century partnerships.
Keep an eye on…
Conway-Gaikwad: If it was Faf-Gaikwad last year, it is Conway-Gaikwad this year and CSK have just managed to find the ideal pair at the top of the order. To maximise their chances of a win, CSK will want these two to click again.
Rohit Sharma: The Mumbai Indians skipper has an average of under 20 in IPL 2022, but will want to prove a point ahead of the T20 World Cup where he will lead the Indian side.
TIP: Ruturaj Gaikwad is in great form. Back Ruturaj Gaikwad at 3.97 to be the top batter today!
