In IPL 2021, the two most competitive teams in IPL history will face off for the first time, and everyone will be excited to see this match. After a difficult opening leg in Chennai, Mumbai Indians returned to winning ways, while Chennai Super Kings are back to their best and winning consistently.

Even though it is already early in the IPL to worry of certain stuff, the winner of this match will be seen as a contender for the title going forward.

So far, the conditions in Delhi have been batting-friendly, and MI and CSK have both put in strong performances in the build-up to this match. CSK prefers to keep it steady in its camp, while MI is not afraid to make improvements to its squad depending on future matchups.

It would be curious to see if any improvements to the squad are made before the match.

The IPL 2021 match between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings will take place on May 1st at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi.



For their match against the Rajasthan Royals, the Mumbai Indians dropped Ishan Kishan in favour of Nathan Coulter Nile. It was an odd decision in our mind, and it really made the squad a little unbalanced.

Yes, Krunal Pandya was able to play an attacking inning after moving up the order, but it is not something MI needs to do on a daily basis. We believe Jayant Yadav will be benched for the match against CSK, and Ishan Kishan will return to the lineup.

Quinton de Kock batted brilliantly for his side, scoring 70 runs without being bowled. As someone who has played for the Delhi franchise for a long time, de Kock is familiar with the circumstances, and we believe he will play a significant role in this upcoming match.

So far, Rohit Sharma has not been at his best, and Suryakumar Yadav seems to be on his way out just as he seems to be on his way in. For MI’s batting to improve, these two must improve their performances. The all-round ability of Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, and Krunal Pandya is a huge plus, but we believe there is room in the lineup for one more genuine batsman.

MI’s bowling has been outstanding, and it has already helped the team win a lot of games. At the end of the day, Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult are very difficult to dismiss, Rahul Chahar is one of the top wicket-takers in IPL 2021, and Krunal Pandya is also very reliable.

So far, Jensen, Milne, and now Coulter-Nile have all earned a run as the second overseas bowler. Mumbai would certainly do without Jayant Yadav, who would provide some batting depth to the playing eleven.


CSK’s aggressive approach to batting has become a breath of fresh air. This are largely the same players who struggled to adapt the previous season, but their performance has clearly improved.

With the bat, Faf du Plessis and Ruturaj Gaikwad are in fantastic form. They’ll be put to the test by the MI new ball attack, and if they succeed, they’ll be able to lay the foundation for the batsmen to build on. Moeen Ali is a constant challenge at number three, and the rest of the batting lineup is still very capable.

Ravindra Jadeja is a genuine number five batsman with serious power-hutting skills, but he is lacking in support. Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni aren’t playing at their best right now. They’ve managed to keep up with the pace as they’ve entered, but their frustration at the crease is obvious.

CSK could be severely harmed if they lose a pair of early wickets.

CSK’s bowling isn’t particularly good. Deepak Chahar has been outstanding with the new ball, but if it stops swinging, he has the potential to score a lot of runs. In that way, Sam Curran is almost close. Shardul Thakur continues to play, but his prospects are dwindling as he continues to be costly in any game he participates in.

The remaining bowling attack consists of Lungi Ngidi, Moeen Ali, and Ravindra Jadeja, all of whom can be taken for runs. CSK has a bowling attack that will struggle against a solid batting lineup on a decent pitch, which is just what it will face in this contest.
