IPL Chennai vs Mumbai Match Prediction for 23 October 2020

In this article, we are going to preview the IPL match between Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians scheduled to be held in Sharjah on 23 October 2020. Read on to see our match analytics and odds followed by our Chennai vs Mumbai match prediction.

Match Analytics and Odds

Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians met in the opening game of the IPL 2020, a match won by Chennai Super Kings. However, since that game, the two sides have enjoyed different fortunes. With four wins in six matches, Mumbai Indians lead the table, while Chennai are placed 5th with only two wins in five games. MI have found a winning combination: Ishan Kishan has replaced Tiwari from the first game. For CSK, Du Plessis has replaced Vijay as Watson’s opening partner and Bravo has replaced Ngidi. Thakur has joined in to reinforce the bowling.

The match will take place at Sharjah Cricket Stadium, a high-scoring venue. Given that Mumbai batted first in all four matches won by them, we expect them to choose to bat first, while CSK who have won both of their matches batting second are likely to opt to chase upon winning the toss.

Based on recent form and team combinations, we expect Mumbai Indians to win the second meeting between the teams in the IPL 2020.

Probable playing XIs:

Chennai Super Kings (CSK): Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Thakur, Deepak Chahar, Piyush Chawla, Sam Curran.

Mumbai Indians (MI): Quinton de Kock (wk), Rohit Sharma (c), Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Rahul Chahar, James Pattinson, Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah.

Match Predictions

For the second IPL game between Mumbai and Chennai on 23 October, we predict that MI will win the match. Here are our cricket betting tips based on odds at 4Rbet that favour Mumbai Indians to beat Chennai Super Kings on 23 October 2020:

  • Who will win the toss? – Chennai Super Kings
  • Who will win the match? – Mumbai Indians
  • Top Batsman (Runs Scored) – Rohit Sharma (Mumbai Indians), Shane Watson (Chennai Super Kings)
  • Top Bowler (Wickets taken) – Jasprit Bumrah (Mumbai Indians), Sam Curran (Chennai Super Kings)
  • Most Sixes – Kieron Pollard (Mumbai Indians), MS Dhoni (Chennai Super Kings)
  • Man of the Match – Kieron Pollard
  • Team Scores Batting first – Mumbai Indians 190+, Chennai Super Kings 180+

Summary

MI have found the perfect combination of batting and bowling. They have five regular bowlers, with Pollard providing backup support as the sixth. While Rohit Sharma is the batting kingpin, De Kock, Yadav and Ishan Kishan have chipped in when needed. The Pandya brothers and Pollard have given MI quick runs in the death overs. While Bumrah has found his bowling rhythm, Boult and Pattinson have provided early breakthroughs in every match. For CSK, Watson and Du Plessis have gelled as openers but the middle order lacks an explosive finisher. The bowling has been efficient without being overly threatening. Man for man, MI are clearly the better side.
