IPL 2024

Chennai Super Kings will face Mumbai Indians in match number 28 of IPL 2024 to be played at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on 14th April. It promises to be an exciting battle as both teams won 5 titles each. MI will be high on confidence as they thumped RCB by 7 wickets with 27 balls to spare against RCB at the same ground.

On the other hand, CSK won their previous match by 7 wickets against KKR and would look to play with an attacking mindset and move ahead in the points table. Since its inception in 2008, Mumbai Indians and CSK played a total of 36 matches with MI winning 20 matches while CSK won 16 matches.

Here we look at the 3 milestones that could be reached in IPL match 29 between CSK and MI:

  1. MS Dhoni on verge of 5000 club for CSK ahead of 250th Game

Former CSK captain MS Dhoni is on the verge of 5000 runs club for Chennai Super Kings ahead of his record 250th match. Under his captaincy, CSK won a total of 5 titles.

MS Dhoni batted brilliantly against Delhi Capitals remaining not out on 37. He has made so far 39 runs in chances he got to bat this season. He has played a record 249 matches for CSK with 4996 runs. Dhoni is just four runs away from reaching the amazing milestone.

Suresh Raina is the leading run-getter for CSK with 5229 in 200 IPL matches during his playing days. He will achieve the feat of playing the 250th match for CSK and become 2nd player after Virat Kohli to feature in 250 games for a single franchise. Kohli has played 250 matches for RCB since 2008.

  1. Rohit Sharma could become the highest run-getter between CSK and MI

Rohit Sharma has given flying start for Mumbai Indians in this year’s edition. His batting in the first six overs put pressure on opponent bowlers and made sure that MI posted big totals. Rohit scored so far 156 runs from 5 matches with the best score of 49 against Delhi Capitals.

Suresh Raina is currently the leading run-getter in CSK vs MI clashes. He made a total of 736 runs so far. Rohit Sharma has scored so far 732 runs in 28 innings with the best score of 87.

Rohit would be hoping to provide another positive start against CSK today and keep the momentum going for MI in the first six overs.

  1. Suryakumar Yadav could reach 300 T20 sixes.

Suryakumar Yadav showed his class by smashing 52 off 19 deliveries against Royal Challengers Bengaluru which allowed MI to chase down the target of 197 in 15.3 overs.

During his innings of 52, Suryakumar Yadav smashed 4 sixes with some lovely shots which put pressure on RCB bowlers. He is currently 298 sixes in the shortest format.

Suryakumar Yadav could join the likes of Rohit Sharma (497), Virat Kohli (383), MS Dhoni (328) and Suresh Raina (325) to hit 300 sixes in the shortest format. Suryakumar Yadav will be eager to join the elite list and hope for a great innings against CSK in today’s encounter.
