IPL 2022: Chennai Super Kings vs Mumbai Indians – Preview

Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians face-off in the 33rd match of IPL 2022 at DY Patil stadium in Mumbai on Thursday (April 21).

The last time these two teams faced off was in the IPL 2021, where the Men in Yellow came out on top after a spectacular innings from Ruturaj Gaikwad (88*) and a fiery spell from Dwayne Bravo (3-25) powered the Super Kings to a 20-run victory.

Post the last game against the Gujarat Titans, skipper Ravindra Jadeja had said: “We started brilliantly. First six overs were good as a bowling unit, but credit goes to Miller, who played some good cricket shots. When we were batting, the wicket was gripping and the ball was holding, so we thought 169 was a par score.”

After six games in the tournament, all-rounder Shivam Dube has scored the most runs for the Super Kings with 226 runs, including two half-centuries and a best score of 95* coming against RCB. Dwayne Bravo leads the bowling department with 10 scalps from six games.
