MI vs CSK IPL 2023 Preview: Likely Playing XIs, Key Battles, H2H and More About Mumbai Indians vs Chennai Super Kings Indian Premier League Season 16 Match 12 in Mumbai | 🏏 LatestLY
One week has passed since the inception of the 16th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Many teams have already made their marks on the points table. Now, it is time for the biggest showdown, i.e. “the El Clasico of the IPL match between Mumbai Indians (MI) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK)”. It is a battle between two of the most successful teams in the IPL history with MI establishing themselves as the most successful team after having bagged five IPL trophies. While CSK, on the other hand, is the second most successful team after winning the coveted trophy four times.

Coming to the match preview between MI and CSK, Mumbai face Chennai in the twelfth game of the IPL 2023 at their home ground, Wankhede Cricket Stadium, in Mumbai on April 8, 2023, Saturday. For Mumbai, this is a great chance to bounce back after having suffered a heavy defeat against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in their opening game. In their opening match, batting first, Mumbai could only manage 171 with their batters failing to come good with the bat. Only young batsman, Tilak Varma (84 runs from 46 balls) shined for his side, other than him, no other batters scored big runs.
Defending 172, Mumbai Indians bowlers leaked too many runs as RCB’s batters, Virat Kohli (82 runs from 49 balls) and Faf Du Plessis (73 runs from 43 balls) made the chase easier and ultimately helping the side register an 8-wicket victory. For Mumbai, only Arshad Khan (1 wicket) and Cameron Green (1 wicket) managed to pick up wickets but they were not enough to help the Rohit Sharma-led unit win the match. The lack of contribution from other bowlers proved how much Mumbai Indians were missing a quality pacer, who could pick up wickets, especially in the absence of injured speedster, Jasprit Bumrah, who won many games for Mumbai in the past. The five-time IPL winners also need to fire with the bat if they are to reach the playoffs of the cash-rich league.
For Chennai, their IPL campaign is nicely poised after having lost one and won one game out of the two games that they played with the recent win coming during their home game against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG). The Mahendra Singh Dhoni or MS Dhoni-led unit defeated LSG in their second game by 12 runs. That match saw their top order batters – Ruturaj Gaikwad (57) and Devon Conway (47) – producing fiery knocks that helped the side reach a gigantic total of 217. Defending 218, their bowlers, especially spinner Mooen Ali (4 wickets), ripped apart the Lucknow batting line-up to ensure a 12-run victory.

Come match number 12, we are going to see one of the most exciting shows of all-time. Both the teams have produced strong performances consistently in the IPL. After April 8, the two units are going to meet each other again on May 6, 2023 in a reverse fixture. Nevertheless, due to the depth of CSK’s batting line-up and presence of versatile all-rounders, their team has a slight edge over Mumbai. But having proved themselves as the most successful team in IPL, it will be foolish to ignore the five-time winners so early.
