The number one and two teams, i.e.., Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings will fight against each other in the first qualifier of IPL 2019 on Tuesday, in a bid to claim their fourth IPL title.
CSK Vs MI Qualifier 1 Prediction
After suffering a below-par season last year, Mumbai Indians are back amongst the table toppers, having registered 9 wins in 14 matches in the tournament.
Unarguably, Hardik Pandya has been one of the biggest reasons for Mumbai Indians’ impressive performance in the season. The Indian all-rounder has scored 380 runs in 12 matches in the tournament at an impressive average of 47.50. Hardik has bailed his team out every time top-order has collapsed in the tournament. Rohit Sharma’s half-century in the last match against KKR too announced that the right-hander’s class is still alive and well.
Given the match is going to be played at M.A. Chidambaram Stadium, Mumbai Indians will be a happier side, the reason being their bowling line up has been the best of all the teams in the tournament. Mumbai Indians have successfully chased down the lowest of totals, courtesy some outstanding bowlers in the side with the likes of Lasith Malinga, Jasprit Bumrah, and Rahul Chahar to name a few.
Chennai Super Kings
Even after losing to Kings Eleven Punjab on Sunday, the Super Kings have still managed to be at number two spot behind Mumbai Indians in the points table which means the Men in Yellow will play the first qualifier of the tournament at home only.
Spinners with the likes of Harbhajan Singh, Imran Tahir, and Ravindra Jadeja are once again likely to hog all the limelight even as Shane Watson and Faf Du Plessis will continue to lead at the top of the order in the batting department.
Suresh Raina showed his masterclass in the previous game against Punjab as he along with MS Dhoni will have the responsibility to take their team to a competitive total.
