However, the remaining IPL 2021 Matches will be played from 19 September in Dubai, Sharjah and Abu Dhabi. The previous season’s winners, MI, will face two-time winners CSK in the first match of the second phase.

Mumbai Indians bagged the trophy for the fifth time in 2020. The final against Delhi Capitals was a treat for all cricket lovers. However, this year the team had a meek start. The men in blue led by Rohit Sharma had the worst beginning in 2021 since their terrible opening matches in 2018. The team lost three matches out of the first five.
The responsibility of the failure falls on the team’s middle order. Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard both failed to perform in the last few matches. The captain admitted that the team was unable to make enough runs. Rohit Sharma mentioned how the challenging pitch opened up many possibilities. But the team did not succeed in their effort of trying something new. The MI vs. CSK 2021 match on 19 September will be an opportunity for MI to revamp.
Chennai Super Kings had a disastrous season in 2020. However, the first half of IPL 2021 saw CSK in their usual form. The team managed to win five of the seven matches it played. CSK was in the second spot when the IPL 2021 got postponed. IPL 2021 Match Prediction suggests that CSK will put up an intense fight against MI. Deepak Chahar and Sam Curran’s heroics with the ball has proved to be advantageous for the team.
On the batting end, Faf du Plessis and Ruturaj Gaekwad maintained the most consistent opening partnership. Ravindra Jadeja‘s all-rounder skills are not to be forgotten. The men in yellow have come back stronger this season. It looks like CSK will make use of every opportunity it gets to leave a mark in this season of the IPL.
After the MI vs CSK analysis, the chances of CSK winning seems higher. But Mumbai Indians are likely to make a comeback. Rohit Sharma’s team will try its best to climb up the points table. The match will be exciting to watch with CSK back to their efficient form and MI trying to make a comeback. As per previous MI vs CSK match reports, the two teams have always put up a solid fight against each other. Which team are you rooting for?
