CSK vs MI IPL 2021 Match Preview:
Chennai Super Kings will lock horns with Mumbai Indians in the 30th match of the Indian Premier League, at Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai, on Sunday.
The second leg of the 14th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is all set to resume this Sunday with its ‘El Clasico’, Chennai Super Kings versus Mumbai Indians. The last time the two teams faced each other, Kieron Pollard’s scintillating show guided the defending champions to a four-wicket win in New Delhi and denied Chennai the top spot in the points table.
Although in the same season, the game was played four and a half months back before Covid-19 fears brought an abrupt halt to the season and suspended the league indefinitely. But unlike most other teams, these two former champions have not witnessed any change in personnel before resumption, however, the host nation has been changed, to the UAE, with the match slated to be played at the Dubai International Stadium.
Chennai Super Kings have found a second lease of life after struggling throughout IPL 2020. Had it not been for a Kieron Pollard masterclass, the team would have been sitting at the top of the points table. They are still quite comfortably replaced with five wins from 7 matches and need to win 3 out of the remaining 7 matches to qualify for the playoffs.
CSK will face defending champions Mumbai Indians whose batting let them down in the first instalment of the tournament. Still, the team finds a place in the top half with four wins from 7 matches.
Chennai will continue to open with Ruturaj Gaikwad and Faf du Plessis. du Plessis, however, led St Lucia Kings in the Caribbean Premier League and missed out in the knockouts due to a groin injury and is a doubt for the first match.

CSK vs MI IPL 2021 Pitch Report:
The Dubai International Cricket Stadium has generally been a relatively high-scoring venue with ample help on offer for the pacers. There should be enough swing on offer early on to keep the batters on their toes. They will need to bide their time in the middle before going big. Strike rotations will also be key, with the side of the ground being relatively longer than the other. Both teams will look to chase under the lights, with 160-170 being a good total at the venue.

Top Picks for CSK vs MI IPL 2021 Dream11 Prediction and Fantasy Cricket Tips:
Middle-order batsman Ambati Rayudu played a cracking knock of 72 runs off just 27 balls against the same opposition in the first meeting. Overall, he has piled up 136 runs from seven matches.
Ruturaj Gaikwad has been quite impressive for CSK in the last couple of seasons. He struck three successive half-centuries to end IPL 2020 and has scored 196 runs at a strike rate of 126.80 in the current season so far.
Moeen Ali was excellent in the initial phase of this tournament. England off-spinning all-rounder scored 206 runs while striking at 157.25 and also took five wickets. Moreover, he did well in the Hundred and T20 Blast as well.
Ravindra Jadeja will be a top all-round option. The left-handed all-rounder has aggregated 131 runs at a strike rate of 161.72. Moreover, with the ball, he has taken six wickets at an economy rate of 6.70.
Deepak Chahar could be a crucial bowling pick. The premier CSK pacer can run through the opposition top-order with the new ball. He picked up a couple of four-wicket hauls in the initial phase of this tournament.
Shardul Thakur‘s recent heroes with the Indian Test team should boost his confidence for the remainder of the IPL. Thakur has taken five wickets from seven matches so far.
Rohit Sharma has been batting beautifully across all formats this year. In the first half of the IPL 2021, the MI skipper was his side’s leading run-getter. He amassed 250 runs and got a good score in almost every game. Thus, he will be a top option as a fantasy captain.
Suryakumar Yadav can be backed as vice-captain. The MI No. 3 was a touch inconsistent in the first half but he batted really well in the series against Sri Lanka. He had scores of 31 *, 53, 40 ( ODIs ) and 50 ( T20Is ).
Quinton de Kock is going to be a popular wicket-keeping pick. The left-handed South African wicket-keeper batsman looked scratchy in the first half of this tournament. But he has been in top form recently and amassed 153 runs against Sri Lanka in three T20Is.
Rahul Chahar has been in top form with the ball. The MI leg-spinner returned with 11 wickets at an average of 18.36 and has an economy rate of 7.21. He will be a key bowler for MI once again.
Jasprit Bumrah bowled really well in the first half of this 2021 season. But the ace Indian pacer did not have the returns to show. He took six wickets at an economy rate of 7.11.
Trent Boult: Trent Boult’s ability to swing the ball came in handy the last time Mumbai Indians played in the UAE. He will once again be a threat with the new ball and should pick up a wicket or two in this much-awaited CSK vs MI clash in IPL 2021.
