Mumbai Indians have won 4 of the last 5 matches against Chennai Super Kings.


The second leg of IPL 2021 is all set to commence from 19th September. BCCI, India’s cricket governing body, has shifted the venue from India to UAE, owing to COVID-19 concerns. Chennai Super Kings will lock horns with Mumbai Indians in the 30th match on Sunday. The Super Kings had an excellent first half of the tournament, where they won 5 of their 7 matches. The Yellow Army are currently positioned at the second spot in the standings with 10 points.

On the other hand, the five-time champions, Mumbai Indians will have fond memories of the UAE soil, as this is the place where they clinched their fifth title last year, by beating Delhi Capitals in the finals. They had a roller-coaster ride in the first half of the season, and are currently occupying the fourth spot in the standings with 8 points.

Top Picks for CSK vs MI Dream11 Match:

Top Picks ­Batsmen

Ruturaj Gaikwad is always a treat to watch when he is in full flow. The Super Kings’ opener likes to time the ball rather than playing unorthodox shots. The 24-year-old has accumulated 196 runs in 7 matches so far in this IPL at an average of 28.

Suryakumar Yadav’s consistent performances in the IPL and an excellent start to his T20I career has earned him the place in the Indian squad for the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup. He has accumulated 173 runs in 7 matches so far in this year’s IPL.

Top Picks ­All-Rounders

Moeen Ali is perfectly suited for the all-rounder role in the current Chennai line-up. The Englishman has mustered 206 runs in 6 matches in this IPL at an average of 34.33, and moreover, he has picked up 5 wickets as well.

Krunal Pandya did not have a great time in the first phase of the IPL 2021, as he managed to score 100 runs and pick up 3 wickets. However, he has previously shown what he is capable of producing and will be a good budget pick.

Top Picks ­Bowlers

Shardul Thakur might be expensive at times, but he is a wicket-taking weapon for CSK. His performances in the Test series against England will also boost his confidence.

Whichever format it might be, Jasprit Bumrah is always a threat for the opposition batters. He had a reasonable first half of the IPL 2021, where he grabbed 6 wickets in 7 matches at an economy of 7.11.

Top Picks ­Wicketkeepers

Quinton de Kock is coming into this game on the back of two unbeaten half-centuries against Sri Lanka. His experience behind the stumps will also come in handy for Mumbai Indians.

CSK vs MI Risky Captaincy Choice:

Kieron Pollard single-handedly won the match for Mumbai when they last met the Chennai Super Kings. It’s worth a risk to pick him as your fantasy team skipper.

Player you should avoid:

MS Dhoni usually bats down the order, and the chances of him playing a big knock are relatively less. Hence, it’s better to avoid him while making your fantasy teams.
