Mumbai Indians v Chennai Super Kings, IPL 2019 Match 15 Preview

336

Match 15 in the IPL sees Mumbai Indians host the Chennai Super Kings on Wednesday and the visitors are looking to extend the only unbeaten record in the tournament.

Mumbai Indians

After 3 matches Mumbai have 1 win and 2 defeats against their name. They lost by 8 wickets away to Kings XI Punjab on Saturday as KXP made short work of chasing down Mumbai’s total of 176/7 (Quinton de Kock 60).

Earlier results saw Mumbai lose by 37 runs to Delhi Capitals in their only home game so far where Delhi piled on 213/6 which was 37 runs too good. Mumbai’s only win so far came away to RCB.  Rohit Sharma’s 48 helped Mumbai post 187/8 in that game and that total looked under serious threat with AB de Villiers hitting top gear. However the death bowling was good enough to seal a 6 run win with Jasprit Bumrah returning stand out figures of 3/20.

Chennai Super Kings

CSK made it 3 wins from 3 outings when they defended 175/5 for an 8 run victory at home to Rajasthan Royals on Sunday.  MS Dhoni top scored with 75 after CSK hit early trouble and a fantastic final over from Dwayne Bravo helped CSK bag another win.

CSK won their first 2 matches with a degree of comfort. They started with a 7 wicket victory at home to RCB who they bowled out for just 70 runs in Match 1. Next time out CSK travelled to Delhi for a date with the Capital’s and this time the victory margin was 6 wickets. The Super Kings chased down a target of 148 in that game with Shane Watson top scoring with 44 although they got home with just 2 balls to spare.

Betting Angle

This looks a tricky game to call although Mumbai will need to be at their best to derail the CSK bandwagon. A chance is taken on the Mumbai top order click and the home side get the vote to hit the most 6’s against a CSK attack which might not be as well suited to this playing surface as they were in earlier matches.

Bet: Most Match 6s, Mumbai Indians at 9/10
