IPL 2020, MI vs CSK Toss Update: Rohit Sharma is unwell and Pollard will be the captain of the Mumbai Indians tonight. Mumbai Indians won the toss and elected to bowl first against Chennai Super Kings. As for MI, there is only one change in the XI match they played in the last match as Surab Tiwary is coming for Rohit Sharma.
If you want to pick a team for the worst performance in the 13th season of the IPL, it is the MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings. A three-time IPL champion, Chennai’s performance this season has been poor. Chennai, who are down in the table with six points, will face Mumbai on Friday. The match between the two teams will start at 7.30pm at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
The Chennai Super Kings have a chance to give some of their young players a chance in this match. However, captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni conceded after the defeat against Rajasthan Royals, but that season is probably over for him, but even if the team wins the remaining four matches, they can still get 14 points in the playoffs which will give them a chance.
IPL 2020: Why Chennai Super Kings could not perform better this season?
Head coach Stephen Fleming has also admitted that his aging team has performed well over the past two seasons, losing its magnetism after winning the title in 2018 and entering the finals next year. Things continued to get worse after the win against defending champions Mumbai Indians in the opening match of the tournament.
CSK had a humiliating victory at the hands of the Rajasthan Royals and now Dwayne Bravo will not be with them as he has been ruled out of the tournament due to injury. The CSK batsmen could be seen battling against Rajasthan and now it remains to be seen whether the team will give a chance to new players.
IPL 2020: Will Mumbai Indians take the lead in tonight’s game?
The four-time IPL champions are in excellent form and due to the variation in bowling attack they could become a big challenge for the Chennai Super Kings batsmen as well as the confidence has waned. Things seem to be changing as the wicket slump in Sharjah. Also, Quinton de Kok is in good form with the bat and Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav and Ishant Kishan also performed well in their last match.
After winning by two points in Friday’s match, Rohit Sharma’s Mumbai Indians are very close in securing a place for the play-offs, while the Chennai Super Kings want to end the bad season on a positive note.
