Ah, bogey matches. We have another.

Chennai Super Kings seem to enjoy playing most teams in IPL Cricket. They are in the playoffs discussion year in, year out. However, one side they don’t enjoy playing is MI. They lost quite heavily to them earlier in IPL 2019, which was their fifth loss in their last seven games against Rohit Sharma’s men. However, CSK are at their beloved Chepauk, where they have not lost once this season. Will it remain the case?

Mumbai Indians are coming off a game against their own bogey team. They lost to RR yet again, which was their fifth loss in six games against Steve Smith’s men. With the top four getting tight with a handful of games remaining, MI have to do what no team has done this season and win at Chepauk. Can MI keep their trend going of performing better against the higher-ranked sides?

Key to a CSK win

Shane Watson delivered! What a relief it would have been for Watson and CSK, with his 96 seeing a return to form and the end of a two-match losing streak for his team. Suresh Raina also found some form with a brisk 38, but CSK need a collective to overcome a capable MI attack. Faf du Plessis will also be key, setting a platform for the likes of MS Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav and Dwayne Bravo to play off the back of. However, can Ambati Rayudu play with greater fluency, too?

However, CSK’s bowling and fielding was well off-colour vs SRH. They were sloppy in their execution, which is something they must improve on. Here, the battle between Deepak Chahar and Harbhajan Singh against Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock promises to be a beauty, especially considering MI are one of the best powerplay teams in IPL 2019. Then, with MI not batting with great fluency in the middle overs, CSK can then look to build pressure in this period. Then, when faced with Hardik Pandya in the death overs, will spin be the way to go?

Key to a MI win

Strong powerplays have been a regular feature of MI’s play in IPL 2019. However, so has stuttering middle overs batting. They couldn’t quite get going in their last game vs RR, and Hardik Pandya wasn’t able to get them to a total in the vicinity of 180. That MI sit third without firing in a full innings consistently is testament to their depth, but they need a big effort in all three stages of the innings against CSK. A fast start from Quinton de Kock and Rohit Sharma would be ideal, followed by good strike rotation in the middle overs, paving the way for Kieron Pollard and Hardik Pandya to launch.

Also, can MI get the better of the CSK top order? CSK have shown a tendency to lose powerplay wickets in IPL 2019, and MI have to take advantage. Depending on conditions, MI could look to play Jason Behrendhorff, but whoever is tasked with bowling up top needs to hit good areas to build pressure on CSK’s top order. With Ambati Rayudu and Kedar Jadhav in middling form in IPL 2019, MI have the opportunity to make ground in the middle overs, putting pressure on CSK to go big at the death against the likes of Lasith Malinga and Jasprit Bumrah.
