MI vs CSK Dream11 Tips for Match 27 IPL 2021 Today Match Prediction 01 May


Mumbai Indians vs Chennai Super Kings Dream11: It’s time for the El-Classico of the Indian Premier League Season 14. Five times champions and defending champions Mumbai Indians will square off against three-time champions and current table-toppers Chennai Super Kings in the twenty-seventh fixture of the ongoing edition of the IPL at Arun Jaitely Stadium in Delhi tonight.

After failing to make it to the playoffs last season, MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings have kind of found their mojo back and are currently sitting at the top of the points table with five consecutive wins in six outings so far. There’s a clear change in Yellow Army’s approach this season – the batters have full authority to hit the ball out of the park from the very first delivery. Moen Ali and Ambati Rayudu seem to have clear instructions of going for the biggie from the very first ball they face in the middle overs. As a result, CSK is scoring at a run rate of 9 in the middle overs. They have one of the longest batting line-ups in the league with Sam Curran and Shardul Thakur projected to come at 9 and 10. Even Deepak Chahar can slog coming at 11th position.

On the other hand, Mumbai Indians are still encountering ups and downs in their campaign this season. In six games, they have managed three wins and three losses. However, the 7 wickets win over Rajasthan Royals in the previous encounter at the same venue must have brought some positivity in the camp. Rohit Sharma is struggling to convert his cameos into big innings while Hardik Pandya is still out of form. Trent Boult and R Chahar have performed well with the ball so far.

Moreover, the defending champions will require complete teamwork if they wish to stop Chennai Super Kings’ winning streak. A high-voltage thriller is expected to take place at Aruj Jaitley Stadium in Delhi tonight.
