Here are the Live Updates of IPL 2023 match between CSK and MI, straight from Chennai:
CSK vs MI, Live Score: Strong spin department
There have been calls for playing Mitchell Santner in the XI as he can be handy with the bat apart from his bowling exploits but it remains to be seen if the team would bring him in for either Moeen or Theekshana. Young pacer Matheesha Pathirana has been doing a good job and the MI batters would be wary of the Lankan slinger come Saturday.
CSK vs MI, Live Score: CSK’s bowling lineup
The bowling department has been boosted with the return of Deepak Chahar. However, bowlers like Tushar Deshpande (17 wickets, economy rate: 12.11 ) leaking runs despite picking up wickets has hurt the team’s cause. Jadeja, who has been brilliant with the ball though not so with the bat, like always would be key for CSK along with fellow spinners Maheesh Theekshana and Moeen Ali.
CSK vs MI, Live Score: Dhoni’s brilliance
The talismanic Dhoni, batting way too low down the order, has smacked a few out of the park to boost the score. However, as many wonder, it remains a mystery as to why the out of form Rayudu and Ravindra Jadeja bat ahead of him. Rahane was in brilliant form as CSK won the first game in Mumbai and would be raring to do an encore here.
CSK vs MI, Live Score: Brilliant middle order
While the experienced Ajinkya Rahane has pulled his weight as has Shivam Dube, CSK will be hope Ambati Rayudu and Moeen Ali can rise to the occasion as the tournament winds down towards the business end.
CSK vs MI, Live Score: Strong opening pair of CSK
Devon Conway (414 runs) and Ruturaj Gaikwad (354 runs) have provided strong starts but the middle-order has not been able to build on them on occasions, leaving the think-tank and fans flummoxed.
CSK vs MI, Live Score: CSK aim for comeback
Their confidence low after earning just a point from the last three games, Chennai Super Kings will look to get their campaign back on track. CSK head into Saturday’s game on the back of a rained off fixture (vs LSG) and two losses. Having endured a defeat at the hands of Punjab Kings in a last-ball thriller on April 30, CSK will hope their fortunes change in the second afternoon match at home.
