Mumbai Indians vs Chennai Super Kings IPL 2020

Defending champions Mumbai Indians and last year’s runners-up Chennai Super Kings rekindle their rivalry as the 2020 Indian Premier League finally gets underway. Moved to the UAE, the tournament starts with this high-octane clash at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi on September 19 and the live action is scheduled to start at 19:30 local time.

Mumbai Indians won a thrilling final last year, securing a one-run win against the Super Kings, and Rohit Sharma’s team are among the favourites again for the IPL 2020 season, as they bid for a fifth title. They will be without all-time top wicket-taker Lasith Malinga but they have otherwise strengthened well and have the firepower to start this tournament with a bang.

Chennai Super Kings, on the other hand, have had a disrupted start with Suresh Raina’s withdrawal and now Ruturaj Gaikwad’s unavailability on medical grounds. If the IPL refuses to budge on Josh Hazlewood and Sam Curran’s availability too, they could be a little depleted for this opening game – and Mumbai may well have the edge as a result.

Toss Prediction

This is a batting wicket and, just as they did when they won the toss in last year’s final, Mumbai could look to bat first again.

Weather Report

A hot, sunny day will make way for a warm, clear evening in Abu Dhabi.

Pitch Condition

The dry, flat Abu Dhabi wicket favours big hitting. There could be plenty of runs.

Mumbai Indians Team News & Playing 11

Mumbai Indians Team News

While he lacked form at the Caribbean Premier League, new signing Chis Lynn could slot straight into the Mumbai Indians team in a top three with Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock. Lasith Malinga has ruled himself out of the tournament.

Mumbai Indians Key Players

  • Rohit Sharma: Hit half-centuries in each of his last two T20i innings at the start of the year and if he can get back to the form he was showing, he will once again be among the top scorers.
  • Quinton de Kock: The big-hitting opening batsman hit 529 runs last season, including four half-centuries, and he remains integral to Mumbai’s batting.
  • Jasprit Bumrah: Lasith Malinga will obviously be missed, but Bumrah was Mumbai’s top wicket-taker last season and his excellent economy rate is another reason he is so revered.

Mumbai Indians Team Form

Mumbai Indians come into the IPL 2020 as defending champions after beating Chennai by one run in a thrilling final last year. Defending 149/8, JaspritBumrah claimed the man of the match award as he finished with figures of 2-14 from his overs.

Mumbai Indians Predicted Playing 11

Quinton de Kock (wk), Rohit Sharma (c), Chris Lynn, Suryakumar Yadav, Krunal Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Rahul Chahar, Trent Boult, JaspritBumrah, Dhawal Kulkarni

Chennai Super Kings Team News & Playing 11

Chennai Super Kings Team News

Chennai Super Kings’ disrupted preparations include Suresh Raina’s withdrawal, while Harbhajan Singh has dropped out too. Furthermore, Ruturaj Gaikwad is unavailable for IPL 2020 due to medical guidelines and Josh Hazlewood and Sam Curran may not be permitted to play the first matches unless the IPL softens their stance on the players travelling over from the England vs Australia series.

Chennai Super Kings Key Players

  • Shane Watson: Difficult to ignore even if he was inconsistent last season. He still hammered 80 from 59 balls when these teams last met scored his 50th T20 half-century during the Pakistan Super League earlier this year.
  • Imran Tahir: Absolutely key with the ball wherever he plays, the South African leg-spinner is another evergreen veteran, who arrives fresh from some top bowling form at the CPL.
  • Dwayne Bravo: Fit again and fresh from taking his 500th career wicket in T20 cricket, he is another that epitomises Chennai’s reliance on experience.

Chennai Super Kings Team Form

Chennai Super Kings fell just short chasing 150 to beat Mumbai in last season’s final as they narrowly missed out on a second consecutive IPL title. Shane Watson hit 80 from 59 balls but was dismissed in the final over as the Super Kings fell narrowly short.

Mumbai Indians vs Chennai Super Kings Team Form in Last Five Matches



MI vs CSK Head to Head

Last year’s final was Mumbai’s fifth consecutive win against Chennai Super Kings – a run that includes the first qualifier and both league matches last season too. Jasprit Bumrah’s bowling was the key, as he claimed 2-14 to nullify Shane Watson’s 80 in the final as Chennai hit 148/7 in reply to 149/8.

MI vs CSK Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket-keeper(s):

    MS Dhoni and Quinton de Kock are both 9.5 credits but, if you only choose one, the South African looks the better pick – particularly as it has been confirmed he will open for Mumbai Indians.
  • Batsmen:

    Rohit Sharma will open with De Kock and was in fine form earlier in the year. If he recaptures that, he will be well worth the additional cost. To keep things balanced, however, it may be better to overlook Shane Watson at 9.5 credits – despite his obvious importance. Suryakumar Yadav scores plenty of runs and he only costs 8.5 credits, while both Faf du Plessis and Chris Lynn are nine credits. The latter’s form evaded him at the Caribbean Premier League, so Du Plessis may be the better pick.
  • All-rounder(s):

    Onto the all-rounders and it is difficult to ignore the top three most expensive. Hardik Pandya is fit again and capable of big runs down the order as well as being a wicket-taking bowler. Kieron Pollard and Dwayne Bravo have already proved their form at the Caribbean Premier League, meanwhile.
  • Bowlers:

    That leaves four bowling spaces to fill, but if you want to pick Imran Tahir – who comes in at 9.5 credits – that needs to be offset by Rahul Chahar’s addition, given the Mumbai spinner is just eight credits. Jasprit Bumrah is key for Mumbai with the ball and comes in at nine credits, while wicket-taking Deepak Chahar – cleared to play after his initial isolation – is 8.5 credits to round the team off nicely.
  • Captain/vice-captain:

    On a batting wicket, Rohit Sharma could be a key man up the order as he looks to dominate and lead from the front. The Mumbai captain looks a good option for Dream 11 captain. Hardik Pandya will contribute with bat and ball if called upon, meanwhile, and so could be a good vice-captain.

MI vs CSK Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Rohit Sharma (c), Suryakumar Yadav, Faf du Plessis

  • All Rounder:Hardik Pandya (vc), Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Bravo

  • Wicket Keeper:Quinton de Kock

  • Bowler:Jasprit Bumrah, Rahul Chahar, Imran Tahir, Deepak Chahar
