IPL 2021: Match 27, Mumbai Indians vs Chennai Super Kings Preview & Prediction

IPL Match 27

Time:  7:30 PM IST

Date:  1 May 2021

Venue: Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi

The two most successful teams in IPL history are going to face off for the first time in IPL 2021 and everyone is going to be pumped to see this contest. Mumbai Indians were back to winning ways after a tough opening leg in Chennai while Chennai Super Kings are back to their best and winning consistently.

With five wins in six games, CSK is currently atop the standings. While Faf du Plessis and Ruturaj Gaikwad have led the charge at the top of the order, their batting depth and balance have shone, with Ravindra Jadeja providing the goods in the death overs. Although MS Dhoni’s form with the bat is a concern, the Chennai Super Kings have coped well as their bowling unit has also performed well. However, the onus will be on Deepak Chahar to pave the way with a few quick wickets in the powerplay overs as Chennai seeks to extend their winning streak in the IPL 2021.

But they will come across a Mumbai Indians team who are slowly making their way into the playoff contention. After a tough Chennai leg, MI cruised to a win against the Rajasthan Royals in their first IPL 2021 game in Delhi. However, they will need to bring their A-game on Saturday, especially with their middle-order struggling for consistency. All eyes will be on Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult, both of whom haven’t picked up as many wickets as they would have liked to in this season.
