IPL 2022 – Chennai Super Kings vs Mumbai Indians Match 59 Dream11 Predictions, Lineups and more

On Thursday, the Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians will meet for the second time in IPL 2022 at the Wankhede Stadium. It will be a fight between two tournament titans who have not had much success this season. MI finished last in the points table after losing their previous match by a wide margin of 52 runs to Kolkata Knight Riders. They will be aiming for a favorable outcome from this match against their arch-rival.

The defending champions, Chennai Super Kings, have won four of their eleven matches, and a win in this match will propel them from ninth to sixth place in the points table. They trounced Delhi Capitals by 91 runs in their previous game and would be hoping for a similar result this time. The match has nothing to offer to the Mumbai Indians in terms of a playoff opportunity, but it is a must-win for MS Dhoni’s men.

The game is scheduled to take place on the 12th of May, 2022 at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.

Chennai Super Kings vs Mumbai Indians Match 59 – Players to Watch

Devon Conway

One of the players who has truly risen to the challenge and helped lead the playoff charge for the Chennai Super Kings is Devon Conway. After suffering continuous defeats in the first half of the season, the CSK were handed purely mathematical odds of progressing to the playoffs, and with MSD back in charge, it looked like a task that CSK could manage, but they were given a bigger boost in hope thanks to Devon’s stupendous contributions with the bat. He had three half-centuries in the last three games and is anticipated to play an important role in this game as well. Conway scored 87 runs off 49 deliveries against DC, earning him the player of the match title.

Moeen Ali

The season was a bit of a mixed bag until MSD took over the captaincy. Since then, the performances put in by Moeen Ali have been literally match-winning, and he will be an important part of the squad in its charge for the playoffs. He had his greatest game with the ball this season in the previous game, where he took three wickets and conceded only 13 runs in four overs. In this match, CSK will be looking for him to deliver with the bat.

Tilak Varma

With the opening batters not exactly in the most consistent of forms and Suryakumar Yadav ruled out with injury, the onus is now on Tilak Varma to put those runs on the board. The season has not been the best for the Mumbai Indians this year, and Tilak has been one of the positive aspects of the team. Varma leads the franchise in run-scoring with 334 runs in 11 games at an average of 37.11. The 19-year-old Hyderabad hitter suffered a rare failure in the previous game against KKR and would be hoping to make a recovery.

Jasprit Bumrah

He bowled a fifer in the previous game against KKR, allowing only 10 runs in four overs, including a maiden over. Despite the fact that MI lost this game, Bumrah was named player of the match. He is now MI’s best wicket-taker, with 10 wickets at an average of 31.40. Rohit Sharma will be happy to see his main bowler grabbing wickets again and will be relying on him to get those quick wickets against a formidable CSK batting lineup.
