After a long wait now, the second leg has been on the cards to commence with Mumbai Indians taking on Chennai Super Kings on 19th September. It will be the second encounter between both the teams.
In the previous encounter, Mumbai Indians won the match by 4 wickets and all the courtesy will go to Kieron Pollard. It will be a big chance for Yellow Army to turn the tables and win the match to clinch the top spot.
It will be very tough for Yellow Army to play at overseas conditions as their previous edition was the worst ever they had played so playing the second phase will be a challenging role for them whereas Defending Champions Mumbai Indians will be happy with the overseas conditions and more used to it.
Before commencement of the first match of the tournament, Chennai Super Kings have been hit with major shock as their Star Overseas All rounder Sam Curran won’t be available for the selection ahead of the Mumbai Indians match.
Sam Curran will be under quarantine norms, due to late arrival from England after the completion of the test series against India. This will keep him excluded from the first match of the second phase.
MS Dhoni and co members have to fill the place of Sam Curran with any other astonishing player. On the other hand, CSK Opener Faf du Plessis has been seen attending the training session of CSK Camp which eventually keeps him in the selection and will be seen in today’s match.
The Mumbai Indians vs Chennai Super Kings match will be played at Dubai and will be the 30th match of the tournament.
DJ Bravo to miss the today’s match
“Dwayne Bravo is likely to miss today’s match against Mumbai Indians in IPL 2021 due to Groin injury.” – According to Indian Express.
Josh Hazlewood is likely to replace Dwayne Bravo in today’s match against Mumbai Indians in IPL 2021.
