MI vs CSK Dream11 Prediction Possible 11 Fantasy Cricket Tips: IPL 2024 29th Match | MI vs CSK Dream11 Prediction Today | Wankhede Pitch Report

It’s time for the IPL’s El Clasico. And this one has the makings of a cracking contest in what is a new dawn in this rivalry. For the first time in over a decade, neither Rohit Sharma nor MS Dhoni are captaining an MI-CSK clash, with the opportunity now for numerous players to shine in such a high-profile encounter.

After a terrible start to IPL 2024, Mumbai Indians have won two straight. But, they were against strugglers Royal Challengers Bengaluru and Delhi Capitals, so this is without their biggest test. However, with Jasprit Bumrah in such great form and the powerful batting lineup beginning to click, they are more than capable of picking up their third-straight win.

Chennai Super Kings are well placed, but they too have their challenges to overcome. They have lost both their away matches so far in IPL 2024, with the Wankhede a test of their mettle. The strike rate of their top order will come into question as there is little doubt MI’s batting unit will go as hard as they can to put CSK off.

But, as CSK have shown many times over the years, form can go out the window at any moment. Strap in, this one could be a classic.

  • Rohit Sharma has struck four 25+ scores in five games this season, but is yet to cross 50. Is this the day he does? Overall he has scored 732 runs against CSK at an average of 28.15 and strike rate of 128.12.
  • Ishan Kishan has scored 26 runs off eight balls without dismissal against Mustafizur Rahman in T20s. Kishan is MI’s leading run-scorer so far this season with 161 at a strike rate of 182.95.
  • Against CSK, Kishan has scored 215 runs at an average of 26.88 and strike rate of 127.22.
  • Suryakumar Yadav lit up the Wankhede in the last match, hitting a 19-ball 52 against RCB. He has the second-most runs against CSK among current MI players (314) at an average of 31.40 and strike rate of 126.61.
  • SKY vs CSK at Wankhede Stadium: 3 inns, 109 runs, avg. 34.3, SR 139.3.
  • The spotlight remains bright on Hardik Pandya. This could be a game where he gets more fans on his side. For MI against CSK, Hardik strikes at 157.69 (164 runs, avg. 32.80). He also has eight wickets.
  • Hardik loves this ground. He has now scored 1,016 runs at an average of 33.87 and strike rate of 135.11 along with 35 wickets.
  • Jasprit Bumrah is simply superb. He is coming off a five-wicket haul against RCB. Interestingly, Bumrah has taken 12 wickets in 14 matches vs. CSK (avg. 34.58) including just two wickets in four matches against them at Wankhede Stadium. But, he has the form to turn this around.
  • Bumrah will be key in keeping Dube quiet. The star quick has overall figures of 2/10 off 17 balls against the in-form batsman.
  • Gerald Coetzee has been expensive but is a wicket-taker. He is striking every 13.87 deliveries in IPL 2024.

Chennai Super Kings:

  • Ruturaj Gaikwad has scored 26 runs off 13 balls against Jasprit Bumrah without dismissal. Gaikwad has a score of 88 vs. MI and just 81 combined in his other six innings against them.
  • Rachin Ravindra has scored just 29 runs in his past three innings. The Wankhede Stadium is a good ground to try turn that form around.
  • In 18 innings on this ground, Shivam Dube has scored 345 runs at an average of 21.56 and strike rate of 126.84. Expect MI to test him with pace in the form of Bumrah and Coetzee in particular.

  • Jadeja also has overall figures of 2/18 in 16 balls against Hardik Pandya and 3/83 off 80 balls against Rohit Sharma.
  • CSK will hope Matheesha Pathirana is fit. He has conceded just seven runs in eight balls against Hardik Pandya, dismissing him once.
  • Mustafizur Rahman is CSK’s leading wicket-taker this season with an impressive nine scalps in four matches. However, three of those games have been at Chepauk, so it will be interesting to see how he adjusts.
  • In 14 T20s on this ground, Mustafizur has taken 11 wickets at an economy of 9.02 and strike rate of 29.27.
