MI vs CSK IPL: The Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have surely emerged as the team to beat in this ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). After a poor season last year in the UAE, the MS Dhoni-led CSK team have come storming back with five superb wins in a row in IPL 2021 and they have registered comprehensive victories over Punjab, Kolkata, Bangalore, Rajasthan and Hyderabad. The in-form Chennai Super Kings will be aiming to continue this momentum against their fierce rivals Mumbai Indians (MI) in their seventh match of the season at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi on 1st May.
Chennai Super Kings have found out their settled combination pretty early in this edition of the IPL and they are unlikely to tinker with their playing XI for this game. However, looking at leg-spinner Imran Tahir’s brilliant record against MI over the years having picked 17 wickets, he might come in the frame possibly in place of Lungi Ngidi.
