Apr 03, 2019 / By Kennet Alphy.C

  • Chennai Super Kings are carrying plenty of momentum with them having won their first three matches on the bounce.
  • Mumbai Indians will be playing at their home ground where they have beaten Chennai Super Kings five times out of eight.
  • Chennai Super Kings have lost four of the last five IPL matches they have played against the Mumbai Indians.

Who Will Win MI vs CSK, IPL 2019?

Mumbai Indians will look to break Chennai Super Kings' winning streak when the two teams face each other in this 15th fixture of the Indian Premier League 2019. Scheduled to be played on April 3, the match will be hosted by the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Live telecast of the game will begin at 8 PM local time.

MI vs CSK Toss Prediction

Since the pitch at the Wankhede Stadium is not expected to change after the first period of play and also taking the dew factor into account, the toss-winning captain will probably elect to field first.

Mumbai Indians Team News & Playing 11

MI Team News

Mumbai Indians fielded the same eleven in their previous two games but we expect them to make at least one change in their line-up for this upcoming encounter against the Chennai Super Kings. Kieron Pollard seems to be going through poor form and he could be swapped with Australian all-rounder Ben Cutting. Lasith Malinga will be heading back to Sri Lanka to play the Super Provincial One Day Tournament and MI will be tempted to replace him with new joinee Jason Behrendorff.

MI Key Players

Quinton de Kock is the leading run-getter for Mumbai Indians with 110 runs and is having a strike-rate of around 147. The South African blitzed 60 runs off 39 balls in the last game against Kings XI Punjab and he will be expected to carry that form into this match. His opening partner and skipper Rohit Sharma is due for a big knock and Wednesday might just be his day. Yuvraj Singh has hit a half-century this season and the team's middle-order batting will depend heavily on him. Hardik Pandya's late-order hitting makes him another player to watch out for. Jasprit Bumrah continues to be Mumbai's trump card when it comes to bowling. The fast bowler has been the pick of the bowlers with four wickets at an economy of 7.11 but he will also need support from others like Mitchell McClenaghan and Krunal Pandya. The latter took a couple of wickets last time out and that should build his confidence going into this game. Jason Behrendorff is likely to feature in this game and he along with Bumrah will be the key men for Mumbai Indians in the powerplay.

MI Recent Form

Mumbai Indians have won one and lost two out of the three matches they have played so far in IPL 2019 and are currently placed sixth in the league standings with two points. They kicked off their campaign this season with a 37-run loss to Delhi Capitals in their opening game at home but bounced back to defeat Royal Challengers Bangalore by six runs in a tight contest. MI, however, could not build on the momentum as they suffered an eight-wicket defeat in their last game against Kings XI Punjab.

CSK Team News

Chennai SuperKings made one tactical change to their side for the last game against Rajasthan Royals; they dropped Harbhajan Singh and brought in Mitchell Santner. The left-arm Kiwi spinner conceded 26 runs off the two overs he bowled, but he will probably be given another chance to secure his place in the team's playing eleven. CSK might think of playing Faf du Plessis in order to beef up their batting, although the chances of this happening are slim. Meanwhile, the defending champions have roped in New Zealand paceman Scott Kuggeleijn as a replacement for Lungi Ngidi who had suffered a side strain just before the start of the IPL 2019. The team has also received another setback with England all-rounder David Willey opting to withdraw himself from the remainder of the tournament citing personal reasons. CSK have not announced Willey's replacement as of now.

CSK Key Players

With Ambati Rayudu struggling to score runs, it will be up to Shane Watson and Suresh Raina to make healthy contributions at the top of the order. Raina looked promising in his knock of 36 in the last match against Rajasthan Royals. Kedar Jadhav and skipper MS Dhoni are the key figures for CSK in the middle order. Dhoni cracked an unbeaten 46-ball 75 last time and the team will want him to continue from where he left off. In terms of bowling, Chennai Super Kings will bank on the likes of Imran Tahir, Dwayne Bravo and Deepak Chahar to deliver the goods for them. Tahir is currently the tournament's best bowler with six wickets at a very impressive economy of 5.20. Bravo too is amongst the leading wicket-takers with as many wickets and he is one of the toughest bowlers to score off in the death overs. Chahar was the pick of the lot last time with figures of 2-19 from four overs and he will be backed by his team to strike early in the powerplay.

CSK Recent Form

Chennai Super Kings are the only team in the tournament who are yet to taste defeat. They are currently leading the IPL 2019 league standings with three wins from three matches and six points in the bag. They crushed Royal Challengers Bangalore by seven wickets at home in the opening game of the season before registering a six-wicket win over Delhi Capitals at the Feroz Shah Kotla. CSK's most recent encounter came against Rajasthan Royals on Sunday at home which they ended up winning by eight runs.

 

MI vs CSK Head to Head

Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings have played 26 matches against each other with the scoreline 14-12 in favor of the former. Two of those matches were played in the now defunct Champions League T20 with both the teams winning once each.

Mumbai Indians have won four of their last five IPL matches against Chennai Super Kings. Both won once each in the two matches that they played against each other in the previous season.

MI have faced CSK eight times at the Wankhede Stadium with the hosts having won on five occasions. CSK, however, emerged victorious by one wicket in the most recent encounter at this ground - the opening game of last year's IPL.

Matches Played: 26; Mumbai Indians Won: 14; Chennai Super Kings Won: 12

 

MI vs CSK Prediction

Mumbai Indians vs Chennai Super Kings is arguably the most anticipated of all the matches in the Indian Premier League and one can expect a cracker of a contest when these two teams collide on Wednesday. CSK are clearly on a roll with three wins from three games while MI are once again reminding us why they are called slow starters. Having said that, Mumbai have the home advantage on their side and they have a very good record against Chennai at the Wankhede. The men-in-blue have also beaten the yellow army four times in their previous five attempts and that should give them a huge psychological edge. CSK may be carrying a lot of momentum with them, but we feel the home team has a better chance of winning here.
