CSK vs MI, Match Preview
First of all, if we talk about Chennai, then this team had defeated Delhi by 91 runs in their last match. In such a situation, Dhoni’s army would like to maintain the winning streak. In the last match, star player Ravindra Jadeja did not get a chance in the playing XI due to injury and now it is reported that Jadeja may be ruled out of the entire tournament due to injury. MS Dhoni is not known to make any changes in the team. In such a situation, Chennai can go into this match without any change.
At the same time, talking about Mumbai, this team got 52 runs against Kolkata. With Mumbai now out of the race for the play-offs, captain Rohit Sharma will give a chance to the young players, keeping in mind the 2023 IPL.
