Rohit Sharma

The El Classico of Indian Premier League is all set to treat cricket fans. Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians will be facing each other in the 59th match of IPL 2022, to be played at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. So far in this IPL, both MI and CSK have struggled at the bottom two spots of the points table, with CSK winning four and losing seven, and Mumbai Indians winning two and losing nine. Both teams are yet to win at Wankhede Stadium in IPL 2022, with CSK losing both matches they played, and MI losing to LSG in the only match they played at the venue.

This is a do-or-die match for Chennai Super Kings to qualify for the playoffs, while MI have already been eliminated. When both the teams faced earlier in the season, CSK won by three wickets in a last-ball chase. For the CSK, their opening Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway has been in great form. Shivam Dube and Ambati Rayudu have also been in good touch while captain MS Dhoni has played some valuable cameos this season. Maheesh Theekshana, Mukesh Choudhary, and Dwayne Bravo have been brilliant with the ball.

The batting form of MI’s captain Rohit Sharma has been a concern. However, hs opening partner Ishan Kishan had a good last three matches. Tilak Varma and Tim David have also played useful knocks for the team while Jasprit Bumrah, who had been completely out of form in the first ten matches of the season, took a brilliant five-wicket haul last match against KKR.

Pitch Report:
The surface is expected to provide a lot of support to the batters and they are likely to pile up a huge total. However, the pitch might become slow during the second innings and spinners are likely to dominate that part of the match.

MS Dhoni

Head to head: Both the teams faced each other in 33 IPL matches, with MI winning 19 and CSK winning 14.

1 – Dwayne Bravo, with 33 wickets against MI, needs just one wicket to overtake Umesh Yadav and have the most wickets against a single opposition in the IPL.
