MI vs CSK Dream11 Prediction

Indian Premier League, 2019 | Chennai Super Kings vs Mumbai Indians, 15th Match | MI vs CSK Who Will Win

The Indian Premier League has reached into its 15th encounter of the season and the two teams contesting here will be the three-time champions Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings. Both teams have won the coveted title thrice and are the most successful team of the league.

Mumbai Indians

The champions of 2013, 2015 and 2017 have not started their campaign for this year the way they would have wanted. From the three matches, they have played so far, only once they have emerged victorious while on two occasions they ended up on the losing side.

They lost their tournament opener at home against Delhi Capitals then went onto win against Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Chinnaswamy Stadium by 6 runs in a controversial end to the match.

Their third encounter was again an away affair where Kings XI Punjab closed-off them by 8 wickets. This would be their fourth game of the season and their current position at the points table demands a win to set the tone for the upcoming matches.

Chennai Super Kings

The defending champions have started outstandingly well this season too as they are currently holding the top spot on the points table with three wins from three encounters.

The ‘Old’ boys are definitely making it big this year as well and looking nowhere near a defeat. The three games where they registered wins came against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the tournament opener by 7 wickets followed by wins over Delhi Capitals and Rajasthan Royals by 6 wickets and 8 runs respectively.

They are currently on a 6 match winning streak from the last season and would be eyeing their 7th win here. Mumbai Indians are the only side in IPL who have had the better of CSK in head to head battles by pipping them 14:12 in 26 battles.

MI vs CSK Dream11 Teams

Players to watch out for CSK:

The Super Kings are on the top of their game after being undefeated from 3 games. All their players are performing at crucial stages with MS Dhoni being the latest to show why he is still the best finisher in the world. Shane Watson and Suresh Raina will play the anchors with the bat for CSK.

All-rounder Dwayne Bravo is in a terrific bowling form with 6 wickets from 3 games and made a vital contribution with the bat down the order in the last game.

The 40-year ‘young’ assassin Imran Tahir is leading the way with the ball for CSK as he has scalped 6 wickets and is the current ‘Purple Cap’ holder. The pace duo of Shardul Thakur and Deepak Chahar have also been consistent and picking up wickets on a regular basis.

Players to watch out for MI:

Mumbai Indians are struggling, which means some transformations in the side are sure to happen. Wicket-keeper Quinton de Kock is fresh of a half-century from the last game which means he is a sure starter along with Rohit Sharma and Yuvraj Singh.

The all-round duo of Pandya brothers will once again feature in the starting eleven with Hardik Pandya coming back to his hard-hitting form.

Jasprit Bumrah is their premier bowler and has 4 wickets to his name, Mayank Markande is the lone spinner in the setup while it looks like Jason Behrendorff is about to make his IPL debut in this game.
