Kieron Pollard gets to his fifty off just 17 balls, the fastest of this season. He took Shardul Thakur to cleaners in the 15th over to get the milestone. CSK are under the pump now as MI need 66 off 30 balls with Kieron Pollard seeing the ball like a football.
Mumbai Indians are in a dire position here and need Krunal Pandya and Kieron Pollard to forge a massive partnership to get them closer to the target, Chennai Super Kings are in control of the game and need a couple of wickets more to tighten their grip.

The southpaw charged down the track only to chip the ball back to the off-spinner. MI have lost three now and they are in all sorts of trouble. de Kock c and b Moeen Ali 38(28)
OUT! Another one bites the dust and Chennai Super Kings are right back in command. Ravindra Jadeja dismisses the in-form Suryakumar Yadav to dent MI further.

On the other hand, the defending champions have blown hot and cold this season, winning three of their first six games. Their middle-order woes have been their biggest nemesis this season, with Ishan Kishan and Hardik Pandya under fire. However, they made some surprising changes in their last encounter against KKR and that move paid off. While Kishan was dropped from the XI, Krunal Pandya was promoted at number four, with Nathan Coulter-Nile placed at number seven. Although MI won the game by seven wickets, it would be interesting to see if this strategy is sustainable for the long run.
Although CSK had a far better campaign this MI so far, predicting favourites for this contest isn’t easy. Mumbai Indians have a knack of bouncing back after slow starts, and CSK should be aware of the fact. However, the momentum is in CSK’s favour, and the three-time champions would be confident ahead of the fixture.
