Mumbai Indians will take on Chennai Super Kings in the reverse fixture during the first match of the doubleheader to be played at M Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai on 6 May 2023 in the IPL 2023. Their previous encounter against Lucknow Super Giants in Lucknow was washed out due to rain.
It is one of the biggest rivalries in IPL history. The last time these two teams met, Chennai Super Kings registered a comprehensive 7-wicket win at Mumbai. Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings have a top-quality batting line-up that can create panic among other teams.
Here we look at the 3 Players Who Could Score the Most Runs Between MI and CSK
- Ruturaj Gaikwad
Ruturaj Gaikwad has been in sensational touch for Chennai Super Kings while opening the innings. He showed his class with a brilliant knock against Punjab Kings in the previous match and helped CSK post a huge total.
Gaikwad would look to give another explosive start along with Devon Conway against an inexperienced Mumbai Indians bowling line-up. He will be eager to showcase his intent in the first six overs and keep the scoreboard ticking. During the first fixture against Mumbai Indians, Gaikwad remained unbeaten helping CSK win the match easily.
If Gaikwad can provide the damage at the top, then Chennai Super Kings can really trouble Mumbai Indians’ bowling.
- Suryakumar Yadav
Suryakumar Yadav returned to his old form during the previous match against Punjab Kings. Chasing down 215 runs to win, he came with positive intent right from word go and smashed PBKS bowlers to all over the park.
He made the batting look at ease and demonstrated innovative hitting that made life tough for the opponent bowlers. Surya will be key for Mumbai Indians to keep the scoreboard ticking and showcase his skills with his attacking strokes.
If Surya can continue his good form, then Mumbai Indians can pose a threat to Chennai Super Kings and register a win.
- Devon Conway
Devon Conway looked in sublime touch along with Ruturaj Gaikwad during this year’s IPL. He made an unbeaten 92 off 56 deliveries including 16 fours and 1 six that helped CSK post 200 for 4 against Punjab Kings.
Known for his aggressive style of play against the pacers and spinners makes him a tough batter to bowl at. He will look to continue his brilliant form against arch-rivals Mumbai Indians at home and make sure that the CSK register does not lose.
If Conway can do the job at the top order, then Chennai Super Kings would create a major dent in Mumbai Indian chances of reaching the playoff stage.
