Mumbai Indians Predicted Playing 11

Openers: Quinton de Kock (wk) and Chris Lynn

There is no doubt that South African top order batsmen are better than others so this is about to confirm that Quinton de Kock will open the inning for Mumbai Indians against Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2020. Quinton de Kock is also a good wicket-keeper that will be beneficial for the Mumbai Indians team.

All Australian players are assumed to be available with no official statement about their participation in the first few matches of the Indian Premier League. If Chris Lynn will be available, he can be a good partner of Quinton de Kock.

Middle Order: Rohit Sharma (c), Suryakumar Yadav, and Ishan Kishan

The Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma can’t play any lower than No.3. Rohit Sharma is the legend of the Indian Premier League and his performance in UAE is very good. Rohit Sharma will lead their team to win the fourth title of IPL.

Suryakumar Yadav is the best-uncapped player in IPL 2020 and he will try his best to earn a national spot with his performance in this season. Suryakumar Yadav can play the role of the big hitter in the IPL 2020 1st Match.

Youngster Ishan Kishan who scored 101 runs in 7 matches of last season. He can participate in the final slot in the middle order.

All-Rounders: Krunal Pandya, Kieron Pollard, and Hardik Pandya

In a team that lacks too many quality spinners, Krunal Pandya will have to play a massive role for Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League 2020. Krunal Pandya doesn’t have a good record in IPL so far, but he can play a massive role in the most difficult overs of the bowling inning.

The West Indian player Kieron Pollard will be the fast bowling all-rounder in the Mumbai Indians team for IPL 2020. Kieron Pollard is a good hitter and the 6th bowling option for the MI.

Indian superstar Hardik Pandya can take on the spinners and give a good score target to the opponent. He can bowl four overs in every match because he is another fast-bowling all-rounder in MI’s team.

Bowlers: Rahul Chahar, Trent Boult, and Jasprit Bumrah

Rahul Chahar is a young-leg-spinner that will be the lead tweaker in the Mumbai Indians XI during Indian Premier League 2020. Due to the absence of Lasith Malinga, Indian superhead Jasprit Bumrah will be Mumbai Indians go-to-man at all stages of the inning. Trent Boult can be the good partner of the Jasprit Bumrah who has a variety of bowling attacks.

MI’s Playing XI against CSK 2020: Quinton de Kock (wk), Chris Lynn, Rohit Sharma (c), Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Rahul Chahar, Trent Boult, and Jasprit Bumrah.

Chennai Super Kings Predicted Playing 11

Openers: Murali Vijay and Faf du Plessis

This will be a difficult decision for the Chennai Super Kings as they replace their vice-captain Suresh Raina, who has withdrawn from IPL 2020. Murali Vijay will be a safe option for CSK to replace Raina. Vijay is a Tamil Nadu batsmen who was on the bench in the previous season IPL, but this year’s tournament will be a much-awaited return for him.

There will be another tough decision for CSK as they choose from Faf du Plessis and Shane Wason for the partner of Murali Vijay. CSK can choose Faf du Plessis because he has already played with Murali Vijay in the past.

Middle Orders: Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav and MS Dhoni (c)

In the absence of Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu will be a safe option for the Chennai Super Kings team to play at No.3. Rayudu is the player from Hyderabad who has the experience and a calm head on his shoulders while batting and his familiarity with the opening, he could play an anchor role for Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2020.

Kedar Jadhav to be a part of the CSK’s XI is about to be confirmed due to the withdrawals of Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh. He will play at No.3, with his off-spin on the slow and low UAE pitches.

After a few changes in the team, there will be difficult conditions for the Chennai Super Kings captain and wicket-keeper MS Dhoni. He will come to the crease at No.5. MS Dhoni is an experienced and a hitter batsmen.

All-Rounders: Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja, and Sam Curran

Dwayne Bravo and Ravindra Jadeja are the easiest choices for the CSK’s team because they will form the backbone of the batting lineup in IPL 2020. There will be the main role of Jadeja and Bravo in the success of Chennai Super Kings.

Sam Curran would add an extra element of surprise and youth with his left-arm pace and stroke-filled batting. Sam Curran is a newly signed player of CSK, in the previous season Curran was played by KXIP and his performance was not good.

Bowlers: Piyush Chawla, Deepak Chahar, and Imran Tahir

Another buy in the IPL 2020 auction, Piyush Chawala will play at the place of an off-spinner Harbhajan Singh. He is a leg-spinner that will protect googly and variations of pace.

Deepak Chahar is recently testing positive for Covid-19 and has since announced that he is recovering well. Deepak Chahar is a pacer who can swing the new ball and has developed into a potent death bowler over the past 2 years.

The purple cap winner in the IPL 2019, Imran Tahir will take part in the playing XI of the Chennai Super Kings for the first match of IPL 2020.

CSK’s Playing XI against MI 2020: Faf du Plessis, Murali Vijay, Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (c, wk), Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja, Sam Curran, Piyush Chawla, Deepak Chahar, and Imran Tahir.
