IPL 2021, LIVE Cricket Score, Mumbai Indians (MI) vs Chennai Super Kings (CSK):

Okay, last over of the powerplay, who’s going to bowl it? Looks like it’ll be Boult with his third over. First ball’s a single, and then there’s a shout for LBW on the second. Boult looked convinced, but the umpire is not having it. Leg byes called. Oh lord, that was some risky running from Chennai, Moeen Ali was almost caught out by an inch-perfect throw from Suryakumar! The umpire decides to go upstairs with it and take a better look, and in the replay, Ali is clearly safe. Still, he’ll have been sweating bullets for a minute. Ali gets a boundary at deep backward square leg. Krunal Pandya should have stopped that, but he overcommits and ends up running past it. He’s cost his team three runs here. Dot to end the over, and we head into a strategic timeout.

Preview: Mumbai Indians (MI) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) face each other for the first time in IPL 2021. The biggest rivalry of the tournament is happening in this edition quite late than expected. MI and CSK are two of the top teams in the competition with Mumbai having won the title five times while Chennai lifting the trophy thrice.

In the current season, CSK are coming into this mouth-watering contest as the favourites, having won all their games so far since losing the first match against Delhi Capitals (DC). After last year’s average outing, where they even failed to make the cut into the playoffs, CSK worked on their weaknesses, fixed their squad and came back strongly in IPL 2021.

CSK openers Faf du Plessis and Ruturaj Gaikwad have been in red hot form and MI’s new-ball bowlers will have their task cut out against the pair. Du Plessis especially has looked in great touch in this season. CSK bat deep and the majority of their batsmen are in good form. The only weakness that one may see is in their bowling department with Shardul Thakur being expensive at the start and the spinners not being able to control the flow of runs at times.

Mumbai Indians have plenty of problems. A key reason in their inconsistent show so far in the league is due to their average batting display. The middle-order and the late middle order is short of runs and the top 3 are blowing hot and cold. The fact that Quinton de Kock was among runs in the last game should give Rohit Sharma huge confidence. Trent Boult has not been able to pick wickets early on and he would like to quickly change that. MI will also be hoping their No 3 Suryakumar Yadav gets a big one against CSK. He has had some starts but has failed to capitalise on those.

Delhi’s wicket should begin to slow down with spinners coming back into action again. The dew may also play a part so the teams may look to bat second at Kotla.
