While Chennai Super Kings have already won a match out of their two outings in this year’s IPL, Mumbai Indians would like to amend their mistakes from the first loss and would like to get onto winning ways against a team they have done well historically. It will be a close contest to watch out for as Mumbai Indians will be playing at their home ground while Chennai Super Kings will have the momentum with them.
Probable Best Batter of the Match
Looking at the amazing form and hitting ability, Chennai Super Kings’ opener Rituraj Gaikwad can be the best batter in their match against the Mumbai Indians. Rituraj has scored 149 runs in the first two games and has been the backbone of his team’s batting line-up.
Probable Best Bowler of the Match
With the insane fast bowling ability that he has, and the hunger to take wickets after an unsuccessful first outing, Jofra Archer can be the best bowler of the match as he would like to run through the Chennai Super Kings’ batting line-up.
Chennai Super Kings will be taking on the Mumbai Indians in the 12th Match of TATA Indian Premier League 2023 from the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on 8th April 2023. For the viewers, the match will be telecast live at 7:30 pm on Star Sports network on television and Jio Cinema on your mobile handset.
The Barsapara Stadium’s pitch has established itself as a batter’s haven. It primarily has a hard surface so the bounce can be trusted and batters can play their shots. The players have taken a beating all over the field, and the upcoming game can be anticipated to be no different. The captain who wins the toss may want to field first.
Today’s Match Prediction: Final Thoughts
As we have already noted Chennai Super Kings should be encouraged by their latest win in the current championship. The team is just gaining momentum and should be aiming for another win to consolidate their success. For Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, it will be their second game in IPL 2023 after a disappointing start.
It will be a tense game but we expect MI to win this encounter. We advise against going all-in on this game as the outcome is too unpredictable.
