The biggest disappointment of the 2022 IPL has been the performance of the Mumbai Indians (MI). MI who has the record of winning the most number of IPL Championships (5) in the history of the IPL have had their worst season in IPL history after losing their first 8 games of the 2022 IPL season.

The second biggest disappointment of the 2022 IPL has been the performance of the defending championships, the Chennai Super Kings (CSK). The 2022 IPL is over for both MI and CSK as they are far too behind at this stage in the tournament to qualify for the 2022 IPL playoffs. MI have not been able to break out of the last spot on the IPL points table and continue to stay there with just 4 points. MI have played 11 games, lost 9, and won just 2 games.

CSK are in 9th place on the IPL points table with 8 points. The defending champs have played 11 games, won 4, and lost 7 games. While the 2022 IPL is over for both these teams, they still have a lot to play for in the remaining IPL games. CSK and MI will play each other for the second time in the 2022 IPL on 12 May at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai.

CSK and MI played each other on 22 April 2022 and CSK ended up winning that game by 3 wickets. The MI continue to be short on confidence after getting hammered in their last IPL outing as they ended up losing to Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by 52 runs. CSK have a spring in their step as they had a good last game against Delhi Chargers (DC) and ended up winning by 91 runs.

Will MI be able to turn their season around with a win over CSK or will they continue to play poorly and lose without a fight? Will CSK be able to win their second game against MI and keep their fans happy?

Our experts take a look at the betting odds and key strategies that both teams will have to follow to come out with a win. We take a look at the IPL odds and share our predictions below.

MI vs CSK Odds

No surprises with the betting odds as the bookmakers have CSK as the favorite with odds of 1.72 while MI are the underdogs with odds of 2.00.

Bookmakers tend not to go with higher odds in the T20 format as the game can change within a few balls. However, we do believe the odds are a lot more in favor of CSK based on the recent performance of both teams.

MI vs CSK Match Prediction

CSK go into this game with a lot less pressure than the Mumbai Indians who are playing at home. Captain R Sharma was appointed captain of the Indian team based on his leadership of the MI franchise but after a disastrous 2022 IPL season, R Sharma’s leadership is under pressure.

We are not going to go by recent head-to-head stats but instead based on current performance. CSK definitely have the momentum behind them now that MS Dhoni has taken back the captaincy from R Jadeja. With the absence of Suryakumar Yadav from the MI line-up, we are going to back CSK to win this game.

These are the key factors to watch out for when MI takes on CSK.

R Sharma vs MS Dhoni

R Sharma not failed as a leader but also has a batter during the 2022 IPL and it has hurt the performance of the MI. MS Dhoni has inspired CSK to play better after R Jadeja stepped down and Dhoni took back the captaincy. We feel CSK has the edge in the captaincy department in this game.

Suryakumar Yadav Out Injured

With R Sharma failing with the bat, MI have depended heavily on I Kishan and SK Yadav. However, they are going to have to play the remainder of the 2022 IPL season without SK Yadav who is out with injury. This is going to impact their chances of making a big score against CSK.

Team Selection

Our experts called at the start of the tournament for D Conway to open for CSK. They did not do this and ended up losing a lot of games. Now that Conway is playing more consistently, CSK is doing a lot better in the batting department. CSK is also open to experimenting with the batting order as we saw in the last game, S Dube took the number 3 spot instead of M Ali and it worked out for them.

MI have realized that they don’t have enough firepower in the batting and bowling department. It’s a little too late for them to do anything this season and they will need the likes of D Sams and T David to deliver.

MI vs CSK Betting Tips

These are some of the IPL betting tips that you can follow for this game.

MI vs CSK Betting Tip For Top Batsman

The three key batters for CSK are going to be D Conway (3.6), M Ali (4.5) and A Rayudu (6) while the batters likely to make a big score for MI are I Kishan (3.5), R Sharma (3.5) and T Varma (6).

CSK will once again depend on M Choudhary (3.75), S Singh (5.5), and M Theekshana (3.75) to get them the wickets. J Bumrah (2.88) was the star for the MI in the last game and they will also depend on R Meredith (5) and D Sams (5).

MI vs CSK Betting Tip For Player of the Match

Our experts think that this game will be decided by an individual performance more so than an overall team effort. The top players for CSK that can win this game are R Gaikwad (9), D Conway (8), and M Theekshana (17) while the potential player of the match for MI are going to be I Kishan (9), J Bumrah (10) and R Sharma (8).

MI vs CSK Projected Playing XI

We expect both teams to play the same line-up that they have in the past but MI will have to bring in a replacement for the injured SK Yadav.

Chennai Super Kings: R Gaikwad, D Conway, A Rayudu, R Uthappa, MS Dhoni, R Jadeja (C), S Singh, M Ali, D Bravo, M Choudhary, M Theekshana.

Mumbai Indians: R Sharma (C), I Kishan, T Varma, R Singh, K Pollard, T David, Daniel Sams, M Ashwin, K Kartikeya, R Meredith, J Bumrah.

MI vs CSK Head To Head 

The two most popular IPL franchises have played each other a total of 33 times so far and MI have the better record. MI have won 19 games and CSK have won 14 games. The competition between the two teams has been fierce the last few seasons with each team winning one game and losing the next. CSK won their last encounter and if we go by recent stats, then it’s MI turn to win on 12 May.
