On April 8, 2023, at the renowned Wankhede Stadium, the two mainstay teams of the IPL, Mumbai Indians (MI) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK), will square off in match number 12 of the IPL 2023.
Due to their historic rivalry in the league, the match between MI and CSK is frequently referred to as the clash of the giants. Every year, it draws a sizable crowd as the league’s most eagerly awaited matchup. With four titles, CSK is notable for being the second-most successful team behind MI.
The two heavyweights last faced off in Mumbai during IPL 2022, with Rohit Sharma and his team defeating the Men in Yellow by a score of five wickets. First, to bat, CSK was bowled out for just 97. Daniel Sams performed well with his 3/16 best figure. Tilak Varma drove his team to victory in reply with an undefeated score of 34, with five wickets remaining.
Chennai Super Kings
Chennai Super Kings have split their two games of IPL 2023, winning one and losing the other. As he hit back-to-back fifties in the IPL so far, Ruturaj Gaikwad maintained his supremacy in the league.
After losing the first match against the defending champions, CSK rebounded in the second match with excellent all-around efforts from all departments, defeating LSG by 12 runs after registering a staggering total of 217 at the illustrious MA Chidambaram Stadium.
The Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, enter the game after losing to Royal Challengers Bangalore by an eight-wicket margin. Tilak Varma, who recorded his highest score in the IPL and T20s, stood out for MI in the opening match.
The RCB’s top orders cleaned up all of the bowlers. If MI were to have any chance of competing successfully against their opponents, Cameron Green, in whom they heavily invested in the auction, would desperately need to step up.
