IPL 2021 Match 30: CSK vs MI prediction – Who will win the match?

IPL 2021 - CSK vs MI 30th Match

Faf du Plessis injured himself while playing for the Saint Lucia Kings in the CPL and whether or not he will play against MI today isn’t known.

The rivalry between Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians will be reignited on September 19th, as they meet for the first time since India had to halt all sporting events following COVID-19 pandemic.

Despite their second place in the points table, Chennai Super Kings’ experience with UAE hasn’t been quite pleasant. Faf du Plessis may not be available for encounter after sustaining a leg strain while playing Saint Lucian CPL last year-2021 edition of that competition.

In comparison to their opponents, the batting power of MI is largely underwhelming. However they have a strong squad at disposal and are also on two-match winning streaks themselves! In first leg game against Super Kings Kieron Pollard’s blitz stole all attention away from any chance for SLT to come back into the match and take victory after being blown out by Knight Riders in CPL semifinal before suffering severe injury just after scoring crucial run towards win itself (Pollards’s shoulder).

Match Details

Match – Chennai Super Kings vs Mumbai Indians – 30th match

Time – 7:30 PM IST, 02:00 PM GM

Venue – Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai

Pitch Report

  • In 2020 IPL, the chasing teams found it to be much more difficult in Dubai. Scores over the 180-run mark can be tough to chase down. Batting first is the way to go for both teams. 
  • The spinners and pacers are expected to get assistance in almost equal proportions, so this should make it more interesting than just Twenty20! 
  • The long boundaries won’t make life easy for the batters either – they’ll have a tough time scoring runs.

Top batting score prediction-

Super kings’ batting star players, Faf du Plessis or Ambati Rayudu are both dangerous and have the ability to score any number of runs. While Suresh Raina is not as accomplished in terms on his technique but he makes up for it with strong power hitting that can put pressure on an opposing team’s defense before they know what has happened
