Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will compete with Mumbai Indians (MI) in Match 59 of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium on Thursday.
The two heavyweights in the cash-rich league have had a disappointing run in the fifteenth season. While the five-time winner MI are already out of the playoffs race, defending champions CSK have some outside chances to stay alive in the 10-team competition.
Despite their poor performance in IPL 2022, the two teams did produce a thriller when the last time they locked horns. CSK skipper MS Dhoni had turned back the clock to take his side home adding more excitement to the classic rivalry.
The track at Wankhede generally offers decent support to seamers, but the quickness in the surface helps batters pile up a big total as well. Dew is likely to make its impact, pushing captains to bowl first after winning the toss.
