Ishan Kishan To Play MI vs CSK IPL Match? Predicting Mumbai Indians Likely Playing XI Versus CSK

Share

Ishan Kishan IPL 2021: As Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings run into each other for a game considered as a showpiece IPL fixture, one player, in particular, is gaining traction for different reasons. MI snubbed Ishan Kishan against Rajasthan Royals a move that caused a stir across social media platforms. And though Kishan was cheering on for MI from the sideline, he may not have a good feeling about the fact that Mumbai won the game and looked better as a batting unit. The decision didn’t go down well with the fans with many bashing captain Rohit Sharma for the decision.

However, dropping the young Indian wicket-keeper batsman was not a harsh call entirely. Kishan has been a pale shadow of himself in IPL 2021, as he has accumulated just 73 runs at a paltry average of 14.16 from five innings.

The case for Rohit Sharma: There’s no doubt about Ishan Kishan‘s quality. His profile has sky-rocketed in the last few months following a call for the Indian team. But his form is a concern. IPL is a short tournament and a few bad games could leave any team in harm’s way. There’s no way a captain can carry deadwood in his team and Kishan’s output hasn’t been up to the mark.

Will MI Be Making Changes versus CSK?

Not likely, not at least in this game and after winning the last match against RR. But if Rohit does flirt with the winning formula, he may have to resign to his usual tactics and that means, Krunal Pandya, moving down the batting order to create space for Ishan Kishan at no-4, while Nathan Coulter-Nile could also lose his spot in MI Playing 11.

As discussed above, if Kishan is to play, he is likely to bat at no-4, and Krunal Pandya should take on his usual lower middle-order role. In any case, Nathan Coulter-Nile is the most likely player to create space for Ishan Kishan on MI Playing 11.
