CSK vs MI Dream11 Prediction

Chennai Super Kings defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad by a comfortable margin of 6 wickets to ensure a place in the last 4 for the 10 consecutive time. Although they looked a bit off beat in the last few matches (having lost against SRH and RCB previously), Chennai played like champions in 2019’s 8th victory.

Shane Watson, who had been under intense pressure off late, was the star of the match. The veteran Australian scored a brilliant knock of 96 from just 53 balls to help CSK reach the stiff target of 175. Suresh Raina played a good cameo of 38 runs. The duo’s form will be crucial against Mumbai Indians. With the last 4 appearance guaranteed, the team’s main focus will now be to get in the best shape before the Playoffs commence from 7th May.

MI

In their last match, Mumbai Indians were humbled by Rajasthan Royals to a 5 wicket defeat. They didn’t necessarily do much wrong in the game. Reached a respectable total of 161/5. Took wickets at crucial moments. But still fell short than Royals. If they are to win against CSK, the team will have to play like a single unit if they want to return with points from Chepauk.

Predicted Winner

This will is a difficult contest to predict, with two equally talented sides clashing. However, Chepauk is CSK’s fortress and they rarely lose matches here. We, thus, back Chennai to win this match.

Dream11 Hint

The pitch in the Chidambaram stadium has a slow and dry surface this season, evident from several low-scoring games that have happened in 2019. Thus, choose bowlers, especially spinners, here. In the batting department, openers and lower-order batsman should be your choice.

CSK vs SRH Dream11 Prediction Team 1

MS Dhoni, Rohit Sharma, Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Krunal Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Jasprit Bumrah, Rahul Chahar, Harbhajan Singh, Imran Tahir.

CSK vs SRH Dream11 Prediction Team 2

Quinton de Kock, Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, Faf du Plessis, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Jasprit Bumrah, Rahul Chahar, Imran Tahir, Deepak Chahar.
