CSK Vs MI Preview: Chennai Super Kings defeated MI by 7 wickets in the first El-Clasico of the IPL 2023.

The 49th match of the Indian Premier League 2023 will see Chennai Super Kings facing off against Mumbai Indians at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.

CSK's previous match ended in a no result against LSG due to rain, and with 5 wins from 10 matches so far, they will be eager to secure a win in their upcoming match against MI. Having already defeated MI once earlier in the season, CSK will be looking to repeat their success and boost their chances of making it to the top 4.

Having won consecutive matches, the Mumbai Indians have now secured 5 victories from their 9 matches in the IPL so far. In their previous game, they defeated the Punjab Kings by 6 wickets. In their upcoming match against the Chennai Super Kings, they will be aiming to continue their winning streak and move closer to a top 4 spot in the IPL standings.

Earlier this season, CSK beat MI by 7 wickets, with Ravindra Jadeja leading the way with the ball and Ajinkya Rahane smashing a quickfire 61 off 27 balls. Ruturaj Gaikwad and Shivam Dube carried forward the momentum in the chase and finished off the match with Ambati Rayudu, who replaced the injured Deepak Chahar and came as an impact player.

CSK Vs MI: Pitch Report

The pitch at Chepauk is famous for being slow with low bounce, making it challenging for batsmen to score runs. To succeed on this surface, batsmen must rely on their technical skills. Conversely, spin bowlers might benefit from these conditions as the pitch generally aids spin, giving them an advantage.

CSK Vs MI: Team News

CSK's previous match against LSG was abandoned due to rain. As they gear up to face MI in their next match, they might consider fielding the same playing XI.

Having won their last match against PBKS, MI are expected to field the same playing XI in their upcoming match against CSK.
