Match Preview

MI’s biggest weakness is the inability of their powerful batting line to bring their best. Captain Rohit Sharma could only manage one top knock so far. Evin Lewis and Ishan Kishan have not been consistent and the Pandya brothers couldn’t stick to the crease.

Similar is the case with MI’s bowling side, the team as a whole is failing to perform. All in all, if Mumbai wants their ritualistic comeback this time as well the batting unit needs a lift.

While CSK has won 5 matched off the 6 so far, all have been close call. The team needs to correct the middle-order wobble to prevent such scenarios.
