Chennai Super Kings v Mumbai Indians – Match Preview

The Super Kings and Indians share seven IPL titles. This match should be a great battle between the reigning and former champions.

Chennai have lost four of their last five completed IPL head-to-head meetings with Mumbai. Their lone win, of course, came earlier in the IPL 2020.

Where: Sharjah Cricket Stadium

When: Friday, 23 October 2020

Start time: 19:30 IST (14:00 GMT)

Pitch conditions: The Sharjah stadium was churning out plenty of 200-plus scores at the start of the IPL. But the pitch has since slowed and first-innings totals of around 170 are now about average. The venue has much smaller boundaries than in Dubai and Sharjah.

Weather conditions: There is no rain predicted in Sharjah on Friday. Temperatures are forecast to touch on 35 degrees celsius. The dew factor will play a role as late afternoon turns into early evening.

Chennai Super Kings v Mumbai Indians – Team News

The Super Kings will have to do without Dwayne Bravo for the rest of the tournament. the fourth-highest wicket-taker in the history of the IPL has been sidelined by a groin injury.

His absence will probably mean game time for New Zealand all-rounder Mitchell Santner. Alternatively, Chennai might play leg-spinner Imran Tahir or add some extra pace with South African Lungi Ngidi or Australian Josh Hazlewood. Or they could bolster their batting.

Mumbai have hardly moved out of their first-choice XI for the duration of the tournament so far. Ishan Kishan has become a permanent selection instead of Saurabh Tiwary.

One other change the reigning champs have made is Nathan Coulter-Nile instead of fellow Australian and seamer James Pattinson. Coulter-Nile offers a bit more with the bat.

Kolkata Knight Riders v Royal Challengers Bangalore – Betting Tips and Prediction

Here are more free IPL betting tips from our team of experts. These predictions are based on the generous odds offered by INR betting sites and the current form of the players.

Go for Watson and du Plessis in an Accumulator Outcome

Chennai’s Indian talent have not been in great form. Some of their youngsters haven’t taken the opportunity given to them. Captain MS Dhoni has admitted as much.

But Shane Watson and Faf du Plessis have remained relatively consistent throughout. They are priced to score 25 runs or more each in this match at 3.0 with 22Bet. This looks like a good-value pick.

Choose Coulter-Nile to Be Mumbai’s Top Bowler

Nathan Coulter-Nile is gradually starting to get grips with conditions in the UAE, much like Pattinson did before him.

Coulter-Nile is backed to blossom as the tournament progresses, if he continues to be picked ahead of Pattinson. The seamer is priced at 5.0 to be Mumbai’s top bowler with 10CRIC. This is a solid bet.

Bet on Curran to Be the Player of the Match

Bravo’s absence leaves even more onus on Sam Curran. He is a player for the big occasion, though, and could be just the man to get Chennai’s campaign back on track.

It’s quite possible he will open the batting and bowling, providing the England star with plenty of opportunity to put together a player of the match performance. 1xBet have him priced at 12. to get this right.
