Mumbai is five times the title winner of IPL and this had happened for the first time in the history of IPL that they had lost six matches in a row. There are many reasons behind this. The key reason is that they did not pick a good combination of batting and bowling in the IPL 2022 auctions. The batting and bowling departments of MI had failed to give the best performance in IPL 2022. The most recent loss of Mumbai came against Lucknow SuperGiants. On the other hand, CSK is the other team that has failed to perform well in IPL 2022. They are the second-worst performing team right now. They had just one out of six matches they had played. They have lost five matches and are lying at the second position from the bottom of the points table. This match is going to be very interesting as both teams failed to perform in IPL 2022. In IPL prediction, we don’t think that MI will register its first win in IPL 2022.
MUMBAI INDIANS REVIEWS
MI had been struggling with their batting and bowling departments in IPL 2022. The new bowling squad of MI had failed and we think that they must test their bench strength before it is too late. Tilak Varma and Jaydev Unadkat are leading the bowling department with M Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah, and Tymal Mills while they are using Fabian Allen as the sixth bowling option. Tilak Varma bowled out just one over in the previous match. They leaked 199 runs in 20 overs. Unadkat was the only successful bowler with two wickets to his name in four overs against 32 runs. M Ashwin picked one wicket in four overs against 33 runs. Fabian Allen also picked one wicket but he leaked a lot of runs. He was charged for 46 runs in four overs. Tilak Varma, Jasprit Bumrah, and Tymal Mills were the bowlers who failed to pick any wicket in the previous match against LSG. Tymal Mills was charged for 54 runs in just three overs.
The batting order of Mumbai had not been good in IPL 2022 but they performed well in the previous match against Lucknow even though they could not chase the target of 200 runs. They scored 181 runs in 20 overs. Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma are opening the batting inning for Mumbai but they had not provided a good opening start. Dewald Brevis, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Kieron Pollard, and Fabian Allen are handling the top and middle batting order of Mumbai. Suryakumar Yadav was the most successful batter with 37 runs to his name. He faced 27 balls and smashed three boundaries during his inning. Dewald Brevis was the other batter from the side of MI who smashed the inning of 31 runs on just 13 balls with the help of six boundaries and one huge six. Tilak Varma scored 26 runs while Kieron Pollard had 25 runs to his name. He smashed two sixes and one boundary during his inning. We think that MI is seeking a solution for the middle batting order and bowling department. They will test some new players from their bench strength.
CHENNAI SUPER KINGS REVIEWS
CSK lost the previous match against Gujarat after registering their very first win over RCB. The key problem of Chennai had been the batting order. They had not scored a defendable total in any match of IPL 2022 except for their match against RCB. We are not saying that the batting order of CSK is weak. They have the batters like Ruturaj Gaikwad, Robin Uthappa, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudum, Shivam Dube, and even Ravindra Jadeja. They don’t need to change their final playing eleven but need to use the players in a good way. They scored 169 runs in 20 overs in the previous match against GT. Ruturaj Gaikwad was the most successful batter from their side who scored 73 runs on just 48 balls with the help of five boundaries and the same huge sixes. Rayudu was the other batter who put some runs on the board. He scored 46 runs on 31 balls and smashed four boundaries and two huge sixes. Ravindra Jadeja remained not out after scoring 22 runs while Shivam Dube had 19 runs to his name.
Robin Uthappa and Moeen Ali failed in the previous match. The bowling department of CSK also failed to give the performance many of us were expecting. Chennai had lost too many matches in IPL 2022 and the key reason is the worst performance of their bowling department. We think that they need to make some changes in the bowling department for this match. Mukesh Choudhary, Chris Jordan, Mahesh Theekshana, Dwayne Bravo, Moeen Ali, and Ravindra Jadeja are taking care of the bowling department of CSK. Dwayne Bravo was the most successful bowler with three wickets to his name in four overs against 23 runs. Mahesh Theekshana also performed well with the ball and picked two wickets in his four overs bowled out against just 24 runs. Mukesh Choudhary and Ravindra Jadeja picked one wicket each Chris Jordan and Moeen Ali were the bowlers who failed to pick any wicket. Will the management of CSK make some changes in the bowling department for this match? time will tell us.
