MI vs CSK Match Prediction- Who Will Win Today’s IPL Match Between Mumbai Indians vs Chennai Super Kings, IPL 2023, Match 12
  • Sanjay Sanapoori | April 7, 2023 | 3:28 am

The El Classico of the IPL is back as two teams with a total of nine titles take each other on. The Chennai-Mumbai dominance though has come down a touch in the IPL with both sides showing signs of decline and with their trophy dominance breaking as Gujarat broke the chain in 2022. CSK’s bowling remains a major concern. With a flat track and a small ground ahead of them, the bowlers have a huge job on hand. Mumbai on the other hand will relish being back in Mumbai and facing off against a weaker bowling attack, which will help the likes of Rohit Sharma find his rhythm, which has been missing in the IPL for a long time.

CSK vs LSG Key Players

Ruturaj Gaikwad

Gaikwad has a terrible habit of starting tournaments slowly. His returns in the first four to five games are normally poor, and with the ball swinging he tends to struggle all the more. Given CSK’s struggles last season, Gaikwad will have to step up early given the value he provides to the batting line-up, and his success against spin bowlers.

Rohit Sharma

A flat track and struggling bowling attack ahead leaves Rohit Sharma with a great chance of making an impact and reminding his worth as a batter in the IPL. He has the shots, his international form has been decent, and he will be waiting to play a good innings in a tournament which has not seen his impact in a while.

Rivalries to Watch out For

Ruturaj Gaikwad vs Jofra Archer: Ruturaj Gaikwad has never faced off against Jofra Archer in the IPL. Archer, yet to hit his stride still can be a pretty dangerous bowler, and with Ruturaj Gaikwad in really good form, Archer has a task on hand if he is to get his side rolling.

MI vs CSK Match Tips

A flat track, and some strike bowlers may make Mumbai believe they have the side to take them to their first victory this season. CSK, remain in trouble with their bowling and with no spin to save them at Mumbai they could be in for a tough day.
