Chennai Super Kings will take on Mumbai Indians in the 41st match of the Indian Premier League. The match will be played on the Sharjah Cricket Ground and is scheduled to begin at 6:00 PM local time.
CSK’s performance this season has been pathetic to say the least. Whether it’s batting, bowling or fielding, Chennai Super Kings have been a big led down. With 3 wins in 10 games, they’re stranded at the bottom of the points table. CSK’s only chance to qualify for the playoffs is win all their remaining matches and hope for some other results to go their way. CSK face a stern challenge of Mumbai Indians ahead of them. Getting over arguably the best team of the tournament won’t be easy for Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s men.
Mumbai has been top notch throughout the tournament. Even in their last game, they were down and out but a tremendous fight back in the final overs helped them stretch the match to a super over. Their batting looks a real force and Mumbai is the only team whose bowling is as good as their batting. On paper Chennai might compete with Mumbai but in the ground, they’re no match to the form Mumbai is in.
