Mumbai aim to topple toppers
Mumbai Indians have dominated in the IPL and have odds of 1.64 to win the clash on May 1st. Mumbai have hit the right notes in the last few games and look to build on the momentum.
Chennai Super Kings have been outstanding in this IPL. They have bullied teams with their batting depth and bowling upfront and aside from the five wins. The manner in which Chennai have come this season makes them a tough opponent. They have odds of 2.15 to beat MI on Saturday.
Recent records favour Mumbai Indians
Overall records are too close to call despite Mumbai surging ahead with 19 wins as against 13 by Chennai Super Kings. Since 2019, though, Mumbai are clearly ahead having notched up five wins as against just one by CSK.
RECOMMENDED BET: CSK have started the season really well and their new ball potency gives them chances of winning this despite higher odds of 2.15 to beat Mumbai Indians.
Mumbai will bank on their record against Chennai and recent win to test Chennai’s depth. The battle will likely be on MI’s bowling against Chennai’s batting.
Keep an eye on…
Rohit Sharma: He’s yet to fire big time this season but Rohit has this uncanny ability to turn things around really well and the second half of this IPL could see the Mumbai Indians skipper in good form.
Lungi Ngidi: He will be Chennai’s biggest weapon against that Mumbai middle-order. The South African hits the deck hard and can mix in slower balls well. A natural wicket-taker, CSK will need him to take the big ones out.
TIP: Mumbai have the bigger six hitters, giving them odds of 1.95 to hit more sixes.
