CSK vs MI Live Score, IPL 2022 match updates: Chennai Super Kings takes on Mumbai Indians in must-win game; toss at 7:00 PM IST

Hello and welcome Sportstar Live coverage of the IPL 2022 match between Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians from Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium.

Match preview

There was a quarrel between them a few years ago Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Mumbai Indians (MI) At this stage of the season, the dress for the final will be prepared as a rehearsal.

However, the two sides will face each other in the IPL on Thursday at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

Mathematically not out of the race yet, MS Dhoni’s team faces a difficult road to reach the playoffs. MI has already been abolished.

Facing spin in 2022 has been a buggy for MI. And with Suryakumar Yadav out of the IPL due to injury, his troubles have increased. His calm and convincing run-rate in the middle order against Pace (SR: 169.60) and Spin (SR: 122.64) made him MI’s most convincing batsman in an otherwise bad season.

MI lost 23 wickets and managed the second-worst run rate of all teams against spin so far (7.49), which CSK could look to use through its spin-heavy attacks. Sri Lanka’s off-spinner Mahesh Thekshana and England’s Moin Ali have offered control and ability to throw difficult overs inside the powerplay and towards death overs.

His confrontation with MI’s great finisher Kieron Pollard will be interesting. Pollard has scored more runs than any other team against CSK (583) but Rohit Sharma’s team has been weakened due to a natural decline in his power-hitting abilities.

There has been a one-sided contest between Pollard vs. Spin this year. He has been out five times for hitting over 80 touchdowns. His overall strike rate of 107.46 in IPL-15 is the worst since his IPL debut in 2010.

If Pollard is rested, Dewald Brewis could replace him. Otherwise, irregular Ishaan Kish has promised 51, 45 and 26 in his last three games. But trying it on a two-drop (314 in nine innings with a strike rate of 146.04 on 4 in IPL 2020) and Tilak Verma on 3 could also be an option, with Bravis starting batting.

Meanwhile, CSK were hit on the eve of the game as Ravindra Jadeja was ruled out of the tournament due to a rib injury. He also missed the last match against Delhi Capitals. This season has been a disappointing one for Chennai’s bonafide finisher.

But since the return of Devon Conway, CSK has found stability at the top with three consecutive fifty-plus stands. Conway is serious against spin by striking at 196.55 while his opening partner Ruturaj Gaekwad has hit the pacers by hitting a touch below 135. Their powerplay tricks against MI will make an amazing watch.

In the pace bowling department, CSK relies mainly on left-arm fast bowler Mukesh Chaudhary, who took 3 for 19 in the first innings against Mumbai.

MI will be relieved to be back in form against Jaspreet Bumrah’s KKR (5 for 10) – the best overall figure this season – having been wicketless in seven of the first 10 matches.

As a difficult grouping phase draws to a close, CSK will fight for survival while MI seeks out a new blueprint for 2023.
