MI vs CSK Dream11: Top fantasy picks, probable XIs & pitch report

The CSK vs MI clash will be live streamed on JioCinema, while live telecast will be on Star Sports Network

In the highly anticipated clash of IPL 2024, Mumbai Indians (MI) will take on Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in what is dubbed the El Clasico of the tournament. The blockbuster MI vs CSK encounter is set to take place at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium on Sunday (April 14). Chennai Super Kings boast a commendable record, securing three victories out of five matches, while Mumbai Indians have bounced back with consecutive wins in their last two outings.

Despite a sluggish start to the season, Mumbai Indians have regained momentum with back-to-back triumphs on their home turf. However, their true test awaits as they face a formidable CSK side that has showcased strong form across all departments. A win against the in-form CSK would provide Pandya-led MI with a significant confidence boost, setting the stage for further success.

Encouragingly for MI, key batsman Suryakumar Yadav has rediscovered his form, delivering a blistering 19-ball 52 in their recent clash against RCB.

Meanwhile, Chennai Super Kings, while impressive overall, face a concern with their away record, having yet to secure a win on foreign soil. With Matheesha Pathirana sidelined due to injury, the responsibility falls on Mustafizur Rahman and Deepak Chahar to spearhead the bowling attack. Despite these challenges, CSK’s batting lineup appears formidable, with skipper Ruturaj Gaikwad’s recent half-century and Shivam Dube’s solid performances adding depth to their middle order.
