IPL 2018 | CSK vs MI | Match 27: Mumbai Indians have been pushed to the bottom with Delhi Daredevil’s victory over Kolkata Knight Riders while the Chennai Super Kings are ruling this season. The two teams are going to battle it out on the field tonight in Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Pune at 20:00 IST.
MI lost five games out of six but they are known to rise from their ashes. CSK, on the other hand, has had only one defeat this season. The first CSK vs MI opened the season with CSK winning by a slender margin.
CSK started off weak, saved only by Dwayne Bravo but after a few games, they have built a fortress that most teams haven’t been able to cross. But they have won most of these games by their teeth, almost too dependent on their death-over specialist, MS Dhoni.
MI has many hard-hitting batsmen but no one has been able to perform. Their inconsistency is their downfall. Ishan Kishan and Evin Lewis haven’t played up to the mark and Rohit Sharma had only one superb performance this season.
CSK had to face a change of venue but they have not faltered. The pitch has been great for them while the MI will be playing on the grounds for the first time. Both teams may not have changes in their line-up.
Two teams who play extremely tight matches will go against each other tonight, it’s only a matter of chance for a victory. This will definitely be a nail-biting match.
