Dream11 Tips and Prediction

Chennai Super Kings skipper Suresh Raina won the toss and elected to bowl first against Mumbai Indians in Match 44 of IPL 2019 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai on Friday.

Big news is that there is no MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja ,both down with fever. Raina leads the team for the second time. Dhruv Shorey, Murali Vijay and Mitchell Santner come in. Third player to miss out is Faf du Plessis.

Two changes for Mumbai Indians as well as former U19 star Ankul Roy gets his Mumbai debut and West Indian Evin Lewis comes in for Ben Cutting and Mayank Markande.

Ravindra Jadeja also could miss out.

No MS Dhoni in the team bus? Is MS Dhoni not playing this match? What this space for more.

In 25 matches between these two teams, Mumbai ave won 14 and and Chennai 11

CSK vs MI PREDICTION:With an unbeaten home record this season, a better spin attack, Watson returning to form and MS Dhoni being in good nick, CSK are favourites to beat Mumbai.

Fact: CSK have not last a match at home this season. Fact: CSK have lost five of their last seven matches against MI.

So then, which way will the tide turn? Can Rohit Sharma‘s Mumbai succeed at CSK’s fortress, the MA Chidambaram Stadium? Or will MS Dhoni‘s yellow brigade give their legion . of fans another reason to cheer at Chepauk?

Earlier this month, before MI hosted CSK at the Wankhede Stadium in a match which the home team won, Rohit termed MI vs CSK as the El Clasico of the IPL. The fans on both side will not dispute such a statement, for Mumbai and Chennai is arguably the hottest competition in the league.

While they are yet to have a really big opening stand this season, CSK will be relieved with Shane Watson’s return to form. Deepak Chahar and Dwayne Bravo’s form are the other big ticks for CSK.

Expected changes: None.

With Mayank Markande struggling in the last game, Mumbai may give Jayant Yadav, the offspinning allrounder, a chance in the playing XI and accompany the duo of Rahul Chahar and Krunal Pandya on the spinner-friendly conditions in Chennai.

From the overseas slots, the newly added Beuran Hendricks could replace Ben Cutting.

MI likely XI: 1 Rohit Sharma (capt), 2 Quinton de Kock (wk), 3 Suryakumar Yadav, 4 Hardik Pandya, 5 Krunal Pandya, 6 Kieron Pollard, 7 Jayant Yadav, 8 Rahul Chahar, 9 Jasprit Bumrah, 10 Lasith Malinga, 11 Beuran Hendricks
