Updated on: May 6, 2023 4:53 pm IST
The massive breaking news development coming from the Mumbai Indians (MI) camp is that their premier in-form batsman Tilak Varma is not playing their 10th encounter of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2023) against the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) being played at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. The Mumbai Indians will definitely be feeling very much high on confidence after having registered two back-to-back victories against Rajasthan Royals and Punjab Kings while chasing 200+run totals twice during the last two matches.
CSK vs MI: Why is Tilak Varma Not Playing Today’s Match IPL?
After losing the toss and being asked to bat first, the Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma stated that Tilak Varma is not part of the MI playing 11 for this CSK vs MI match. Rohit further mentioned that the southpaw batsman is actually ill and was not available for selection in this game. This is a big setback for the Mumbai Indians as Tilak has been in an excellent form during the ongoing T20 competition having smashed a total of 274 runs from 9 games at a phenomenal strike-rate of close to 160. He also played an exciting unbeaten cameo of 26 runs off only 10 balls during the last win for MI against Punjab Kings. In his absence, the Mumbai Indians have brought in overseas big-hitting batsman Tristan Stubbs.
“Going pretty well, had a couple of good games, just about continuing the momentum. We have some worries, but we’ve started to do well. It’s been challenging to find the right players and the right combinationbs. We know our strengths and the players who can fit in. Two changes for is – Kumar Kartikeya is OUT, a debut for Raghav Goyal. Tilak Varma is ill, he’s replaced by Tristan Stubbs,” said Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma during the toss.
