MI vs CSK IPL: After a brilliant confidence boosting victory, the defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) are ready to take on the in-form Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi on May 1. The Mumbai Indians have registered three wins out of their six games so far in this exciting Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 season. However, the Rohit Sharma-led team will now be eyeing to perform nicely on a regular basis in this crucial phase of the tournament.
The Mumbai Indians took a big surprising decision in the last match as they dropped Ishan Kishan from the playing XI as the left-hander has not been in the best of forms this season. They are likely to play the same team in this match and with a total of four left-handers in the CSK batting line-up, off-spinner Jayant Yadav might well retain his place.
