Chennai Super Kings will resume their IPL 2021 campaign in UAE against Mumbai Indians on Sunday. They were brilliant in all departments in the first leg of the tournament. Owing to those sensational performances, they managed to win 5 matches out of seven. They currently find themselves at number two position on the points table.
They played their last game against Mumbai Indians at Arun Jaitley Cricket Stadium on 1st May 2021. Despite posting a mammoth 218-run total, they lost the game by 4 wickets. Ahead of the second half of the tournament, they will, once again, be facing Mumbai Indians on 19th September 2021. The match, however, will be played in Dubai Cricket Stadium.
Looking at the dimensions of the ground and the nature of the surface, it will be interesting to see what their playing 11 be for the high-octane clash. CSK aren’t known for making too many changes, however, due to player unavailability and injury concerns, we might see a few changes to their playing XI.

IIPL 2021: CSK vs MI- Chennai Super Kings (CSK) Predicted Playing XI Against Mumbai Indians (MI)
Faf du Plessis/ Robin Uthappa
Faf du Plessis is currently nursing a groin injury that he picked up while playing for Saint Lucia Kings in the recently concluded CPL 2021. Due to the injury, he also missed the team’s last few games. As of now, there hasn’t been an update on his injury.
Faf Du Plessis was the best batsman for CSK in the first leg of the tournament. His unavailability could come as a big blow. There have also been reports that Robin Uthappa might make his CSK debut if Du Plessis doesn’t get fit on time.
