IPL 2021: CSK vs MI- Prediction, Who Will Win The Match Between Chennai Super Kings And Mumbai Indians? The 30th match of IPL 2021 will have Chennai Super Kings take on Mumbai Indians on Sunday. The two most successful teams in the history of the tournament, MI and CSK will begin the proceeding in UAE.

Chennai Super Kings made a roaring comeback in IPL 2021 after making an early exit in the 2020 edition of the tournament. At the end of the first leg of the tournament, CSK finished at the second position on the points table with 5 wins in 7 matches.

CSK will be playing the second leg in the United Arab Emirates. MS Dhoni and Co. exhibited horrendous performances the last time they came here in 2020. However, this time around, they are coming on the back of five impressive wins. The players are in superlative form and CSK would be confident of making great returns.

On the other hand, Mumbai Indians didn’t have a great outing in the first half of IPL 2021. They played their first five games in Chepauk. The Batsmen struggled to adapt to the slow nature of the surface and, as a result, Mumbai Indians won only 2 matches out of five.

However, they picked up two wins in their last two games played in Delhi and jumped to number four in the rankings before the tournament got suspended. Despite not performing to their ability, they are sitting at the upper half of the points table. Given their success rate in IPL, you would expect them to only improve as far as points table standing is concerned.

Both teams played their last game against each other. Chennai Super Kings batted first and posted a humongous 218-run total in the first innings. Faf du Plessis and Moeen Ali set the foundation with respective half-centuries. However, it was Amabati Rayudu, who was hearts with his 27-ball 72-run knock later in the innings.

Quinton de Kock and Rohit Sharma gave a blistering start but both failed to convert the start into a big score. Kieron Pollard, who had endured forgettable returns till then, played a match-winning 87-run knock of 34 balls. His heroic knock helped the team register a four-wicket win.
