We are exactly one hour away from toss

Pitch Report: Sharjah was a heaven for batsmen when the season started. And as it has progressed, bowlers have started having a lot more say now. Settling in and then going for the shots seems to be the best strategy now something which a lot of CSK batsmen prefer. MI too have batters who take time before going hammer and tongs. However, they also have a couple of proven big-hitters capable of going after the bowlers from ball one. Last two matches here were won by team batting second. However, the previous three were won by the team that batted first.

Rohit Sharma will be aiming for the big score once again!

MI skipper Rohit Sharma hasn’t been among runs this season. After getting two fifties in the first 5 games, he has aggregated just 84 runs at an average of 24.00 in last 4 face-offs. Rohit has also not been able to capitalizes the first six overs and has a strike rate of 114.65. He has been dismissed 5 times.

Huge milestone awaits Jasprit Bumrah

MI’s leading wicket-taker, Jasprit Bumrah is on the verge of achieving a feat in the Indian Premier League. He is 3 scalps away from 100 IPL wickets. He will also be the 3rd player after Malinga and Harbhajan to have 100 wickets for Mumbai Indians.

MI vs CSK- Who has the edge?

Mumbai lost their last encounter to KXIP after a double super over, but the players are in top form across all departments and it won’t be surprising if they finish off CSK’s chances of qualification on Friday.

Quinton de Kock is in top form and the likes of Deepak Chahar and Josh Hazlewood will have their task cut out against the South African.

The CSK spinners too will have to be on top of their game given the hot form Hardik Pandya and Keiron Pollard are in. But CSK’s biggest worry has been their batting and Mumbai’s excellent pace attack of Bumrah, Boult and Patterson could bring the out of form batsmen to their knees.

It’s Mumbai’s match to lose on current form, but CSK are not going to go down without a fight and what better than delaying qualification for your arch rivals by beating them at a crucial stage in the tournament.

Will Chris Lynn play tonight?

MI needs a win tonight to seal the playoffs berth. Will we see Chris Lynn donning the MI outfit as the Rohit-Sharma led team gear up for their encounter against CSK in a bid to guarantee the playoffs?

2:50 PM IPL 2020 Playoff Race : Check how still CSK can qualify for playoffs –

Without NRR coming into play – CSK should win all the four matches against Mumbai Indians, Royal Challengers Bangalore, Kolkata Knight Riders, Kings XI Punjab. In such a scenario, Super Kings would finish with 14 points alongside Capitals, Mumbai and Royal Challengers. Net Run Rate would not come into play.

With NRR coming into play There is another scenario where Super Kings could be tied with multiple teams on 14 and go through on net run rate. In such a scenario Super Kings need to ensure they win a couple of matches by big margins to move to a positive net run rate since teams like Sunrisers are well placed with a positive run rate.

11:27 am: 

IPL 2020 CSK vs MI Eyes on Deepak Chahar

Deepak Chahar picked two wickets in the powerplay when CSK faced RR in their last game and his side will expect him to do something similar as they face a strong MI batting line-up. If the right-arm pacer let the ball do the talking, CSK will be in with a chance to return to winning ways.

10:25 am:
IPL 2020 CSK vs MI Approaching Milestones

  • MS Dhoni requires 6 catches to complete 100 IPL catches for CSK.
  • Ambati Rayudu and Faf du Plessis need 2 and 1 fours respectively to complete 300 and 200 IPL fours.
  • Jasprit Bumrah is 3 wickets from completing 100 IPL wickets.
  • Kieron Pollard needs 37 runs to complete 3000 IPL runs.

10:00 am:

IPL 2020 Stats at this venue

  • CSK at this venue: Played 3, Won 1, Lost 2
  • MI at this venue: Played 2, Won 1, Lost 1

Captain MS Dhoni, head coach Stephen Fleming may have sounded despodent after Chennai Super Kings put in a below-par performance in their last match against Rajasthan Royals, but mathematically the Super Kings are still in the race to maintain their record of qualifying for the playoffs every season.

The fact that even three wins from their four remaining games could just sneak them into the top four – provided other results go their way – should give them the necessary spark with the death of the round robin games approaching.

CSK vs MI in IPL 2020 : Mumbai Indians by winning the match can get into playoffs

A win over CSK will push MI back on top, but Delhi Capitals and Royal Challengers Bangalore – with as many points – are hot on their heels for a top-two finish, that guarantees an extra shot at reaching the final.
