MI vs CSK Today IPL Match Prediction :
Indian Premier League (IPL)’s 13th season is all set to commence tonight with the fixture of Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings in Abu Dhabi. Mumbai Indians are defending champions and will look to kick off their campaign on a winning note against the arch rivals Super Kings. On the other hand, Chennai Super Kings who are the runners-up of the last season will look to end their losing streak against the defending champions.
Here we are going to discuss strengths and weakness of Mumbai Indians as well as of Chennai Super Kings and will also make our MI vs CSK Today Match Prediction –
Defending champions Mumbai Indians have a balanced squad. They have depth in batting as well as in the bowling. Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock are destructive openers of this format and all rounders Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard can change the game from any position with the bat and they also have Surya Kumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan and Krunal Pandya in the middle order who are capable to play useful knocks. In the bowling they have a genius bowler like Jasprit Bumrah who is too good to attack and he will have Trent Boult who will be very dangerous with the new ball and in death overs he will have Nathan Coulter Nile and in spin department young talent Rahul Chahar will look to do the job along with Krunal Pandya.
On the other hand, Chennai Super Kings have a team of experienced players. In these spin friendly conditions their spin attack of Imran Tahir, Ravindra Jadeja and Piyush Chawla will be very dangerous. In the batting they have Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis and MS Dhoni who are able to play big knocks and the likes of Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav will also be useful. And in pace department they have Deepak Chahar who is a swing master with the new ball and Dwayne Bravo and Lungi Ngidi are good enough to bowl in the death overs.
Mumbai Indians don’t have an experienced spin attack and in these conditions spinners will have to play a big role and they are also without Lasith Malinga whose experienced will be missed mainly in death overs.
On the other hand, Chennai Super Kings are without Suresh Raina who has been backbone of their batting line up and most of their players have retired from international cricket and it will not be easy for them to perform due to lack of match practice in recent time.

MI vs CSK Today IPLMatch Prediction :
Here we are going to discuss about a few players from both sides who can be very good picks for MI vs CSK Dream 11 Prediction teams
Hardik Pandya : One of the best all rounders of this format at present. He is a very good play of spin and in these conditions he will get to play enough spin bowling so his role with bat will be very useful and also a good bowler to bowl in the middle overs.
Ravindra Jadeja : He is also a good spin bowler. With his spin he can put any batsman in trouble and in the absence of Raina he might get a chance to bat in the top order.
Rohit Sharma : One of the best openers in limited overs cricket from a long time and when he gets going then no bowling attack can stop him.
MS Dhoni : One of the greatest finisher batsmen of Indian Premier League. He hasn’t played cricket for a long time but will be eager to lead from front and in the absence Suresh Raina he might bat at number 3 or 4.
