MI vs CSK IPL 2022 top picks

Mumbai Indians: Suryakumar Yadav has been in top form despite finishing on the losing side in all of the matches. The right-handed middle-order has scored 200 runs at an average of over 66 in four matches he has played so far. Dewald Brevis, who is striking at 172.05, is another attacking batsman with the ability to take apart the weakened CSK bowling.

Jasprit Bumrah has picked up only four wickets but has been carrying the load for the five-time champions this season bowling economically at 7.56 per over.

Chennai Super Kings: CSK possesses a strong batting line-up in opener Ruturaj Gaikwad and the likes of Moeen Ali, Ravindra Jadeja, Ambati Rayudu and Shivam Dube in the ranks. 

CSK’s bowling, however, has been lackluster in the absence of Deepak Chahar. Sri Lankan spinner Maheesh Theekshana, who has picked up four wickets in the two matches, has given Jadeja an attacking option with his wicket-taking ability.

MI vs CSK IPL 2022 prediction

Chennai Super Kings have gun batsmen but Mumbai Indians have a better of the two bowling line-ups. If Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan, Dewald Brevis or Suryakumar Yadav find support in the middle, Mumbai Indians could come out of the match with their maiden win of the season.
