MI vs arch rival CSK
Mumbai Indians were one of the first teams to reach the UAE. They have begun their preparations for the second phase of the Indian Premier League ( IPL ) 2021. They will resume their campaign vs their arch-rivals Chennai Super Kings ( CSK ) on the restart night.
Mumbai Indians are without their captain, Rohit Sharma, and their start pace bowler, Jasprit Bumrah, as they are busy in the test series vs England. Suryakumar Yadav is also a part of the Indian squad and will join the MI camp after the series concludes with the duo of Rohit and Bumrah.
MI in 4th spot at the restart.
When COVID 19 hit IPL earlier in May, Mumbai Indians were sitting at 4th place recovering from a not-so-good start to the IPL season. The defending champions enjoyed a mixed campaign in India, facing two defeats in their first four matches before bouncing back with back-to-back wins against Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings in their next two games. Kieron Pollard played a brilliant knock to single-handedly power MI to a thrilling last-ball win over CSK in their final game of the first leg.
