The Indian Premier League 2023 is in full swing, and the upcoming match between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai is creating a buzz among cricket fans. With a history of intense rivalry, this match promises to be an exciting encounter. Let’s take a closer look at the teams and what we can expect from this match.
CSK vs MI Match Preview
CSK’s Strong Batting Performance in the Last Match
Chennai Super Kings led by MS Dhoni have started their IPL 2023 campaign on a mixed note. They lost their season opener to Gujarat Titans but bounced back in their second match against Lucknow Super Giants with a solid batting performance. The Chennai batsmen posted an impressive total of 217/7 in 20 overs while batting first, thanks to Ruturaj Gaikwad’s half-century and Devon Conway’s fine knock of 47 runs.
MS Dhoni’s contribution in the end was the icing on the cake, and the team’s score proved too much for the Super Giants, who fell short by 12 runs. However, the team’s bowling lineup remains a concern, and they will have to work on it before facing the mighty Mumbai Indians.
Mumbai Indians Hoping to Get Their First Win
Mumbai Indians, led by Rohit Sharma, have started their IPL 2023 campaign on a losing note. They faced a crushing defeat at the hands of Royal Challengers Bangalore in their opening match. Despite a valiant effort by young Tilak Varma, who scored 84 runs off just 46 deliveries, the team fell short of posting a competitive total. The bowling department also failed to restrict RCB, who chased down the target in just 16.2 overs with eight wickets in hand.
The team’s experienced players like Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, and Cameron Green failed to perform in the match. Jasprit Bumrah’s absence was felt in the bowling department, and Jofra Archer failed to live up to his reputation. Mumbai Indians will be hoping to put up a better show in this match and open their account in IPL 2023.

The team winning the toss is likely to elect to chase, considering the chasing teams’ success rate in IPL matches.
