The high-voltage game between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Mumbai Indians (MI) is all set to be played today from 3:30 PM (IST). It will be taking place at the Chepauk Stadium and promises to be an absolute crackerjack of a contest.

When both CSK and MI locked horns with each other on 8th April 2023, the yellow-clad jersey team won the game by 7 wickets. Mumbai had posted 157 runs on the board and MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings chased it down with ease and with 11 balls remaining.

Chennai Super Kings are in the 3rd position in the IPL 2023 points table and on the other hand, Mumbai are in the 6th position. A win for Mumbai would solidify their chances of qualifying for the playoffs.

In this article, we take a look at 3 vice-captain choices for today’s CSK vs MI game at the Chepauk Stadium in Chennai:

1. Surya Kumar Yadav (Mumbai Indians)

Surya Kumar Yadav

The number 1 T20I batter in the world, Surya Kumar Yadav is back to his videogame mode. He is hitting some unbelievable shots and is smearing bowlers all across the ground.

In the previous game against Punjab Kings (PBKS), the MI batter mustered 66 runs in just 31 balls and his innings was packed with 8 fours and 2 sixes. He can definitely be a good vice-captain option.

2. Tilak Verma (Mumbai Indians)

Tilak Verma

One of the finds of IPL 2022 and IPL 2023, Tilak Verma is presenting a strong case for himself for the national team. Verma scored a quick-fire knock of 26* runs in just 10 balls against PBKS in the previous game and looks in solid touch.

He is MI’s second-highest run-getter in IPL 2023 and has so far mustered 274 runs at a staggering average of 45.67. Any average above 30 in a T20 game is a good average and this should most certainly make you go towards Tilak Verma as your vice-captain in this CSK vs MI game.

3. Ravindra Jadeja (Chennai Super Kings)

Ravindra Jadeja

Unarguably one of the most explosive and potent all-rounders in the world presently, Ravindra Jadeja has been an asset for CSK over the years. When the two teams locked horns with each other in April 2023, Jadeja bagged 3 wickets and conceded only 20 runs in 4 overs.

He can bat as well and can build as well as play an explosive innings with the willow. Ravindra Jadeja will be a key player to watch out for in this game and you should be taking him in your fantasy team.
