It is time for the most awaited clash of this season! Mumbai will face off against their arch-rivals, Chennai, in the 27th match of the season. None of the teams will have home advantage as the match will be played in Delhi. Chennai has been on a roll since losing their first game against Delhi. With Ruturaj Gaikwad, Suresh Raina, Faf du Plessis, Moeen Ali, Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni in the side, their batting doesn’t have a tail and most of their players have been in good form.
Their bowling too has been doing well. It is led by Deepak Chahar and Sam Curran at the start and then their spinners take over to stem the flow of runs. A bit of worry will be their bowling at the death and they will look to change that. On the other hand, the defending champions started their campaign with a loss and have done well ever since. They lost a couple of matches in Chennai towards the end but have started their Delhi leg with a win. Their batters would be happy to bat in Delhi, as the pitch is much more suitable for them than the one in Chennai. Their batting has been a weak link but with de Kock and Krunal Pandya getting back in form, they are looking a much better side. Their bowling is also well settled with Rahul Chahar and Jasprit Bumrah leading the way and they are well supported by the others. Overall, both these sides have most of their bases covered, are in good form, and are formidable on their day. The question remains, who will come out on top? Well, the games between these two sides are always engaging and high-intensity. So, making predictions about how the match will go is a very, very risky bet. The only option we have is to wait and watch how it goes!
