Want Mega Success:
CSK have won 4 of 11 matches so far and remain 9th on the points table. Can no longer qualify directly for the play-off round. Based on the net run rate, there is a 10 percent chance of qualifying with 14 points. Thus, the Chennai Super Kings team is forced to win the next 3 matches.
In this situation, if the Chennai Super Kings team defeats the Mumbai Indians team today, they will advance to the 6th place with 10 points. The reason is that CSK’s net run rate is +0.028. Sunrisers Hyderabad, Kolkata and Punjab, who have 10 points at 6,7,8, have a net run rate of minus 10 points.
Thus, CSK does not need to achieve mega success today. Even if they win the last ball, they will advance to 6th place with 10 points.
Chance of Success:
Ishant Kishan and Rohit Sharma are out of the Mumbai Indians squad. Suryakumar Yadav also stepped down. Only Bumrah has excelled in bowling. Thus, cricket critics believe that the chances of CSK beating Mumbai Indians today are bright.
