MI Vs CSK IPL 2020: 5 stars heading into the match


MI Vs CSK Dream XI prediction

It's about the time when the biggest festival of the year arrives. Yes, I am talking about IPL 2020. Due to the spread of the pandemic, the event which was due in the early quarter of the year had to be postponed to a time when it would much safer to play. The wait for IPL fans is over now and we start with the biggest rivalry in the history of this league, Chennai Super Kings Vs Mumbai Indians. That's how you kick off IPL 2020 with a banger. Going into the contest, here are the 5 performers who have the best chance of clicking in this game and changing the match completely for their respective team:- 

Imran Tahir 

Imran Tahir is the leading spinner for CSK

Let's face it, spinners are going to have an amazing time in IPL this season. UAE is meant for the conditions where spinners can have the time of their life. The bounce is low and spinners can reap the maximum benefit from it. When we are talking about spinners, there's none as successful as Imran Tahir. Last year, he happened to be the leading wicket-taker. The major reason behind it was the fact that he had to play most of his games in Chennai where it really helps the spinners. The case is going to be no different here and IPL 2020 might be another hugely successful season for him. He's definitely the biggest player going into the game so there you go with the MVP for Dream XI prediction. 

Rahul Chahar 

Rahul Chahar is the leading spinner of MI

There's no doubt in my mind that this young lad is destined for bigger prospects in the future. He really delivered big time for MI in the last season. He's someone who sticks to his choices and doesn't shy away from inviting batsmen to hit him out of the park. In the UAE, it will be extremely difficult for batsmen to go all out. The heat is going to drain them and they would want Pacers to bowl to them instead of the spinners, such as Rahul Chahar. He was the second most successful bowler for Mumbai Indians last season but you may see a turnaround this season. He might be the highlight package for the team. 

Piyush Chawla 

Piyush Chawla used to play for KKR

When we talk about the most successful bowlers in IPL history, we do talk about Lasith Malinga, Dwayne Bravo, Harbhajan Singh but we don't talk about Piyush Chawla often. He might not have too many variations and he might also not be as talented bowler as the ones stated above but the dude is really intelligent. He used to play for KKR and would mostly bowl in powerplay itself to give them a breakthrough. Under the captaincy of MS Dhoni, Piyush Chawla is going to be a really dangerous weapon of CSK. Don't be surprised if he ends up in the tally of highest wicket-takers this season! 

Suryakumar Yadav

SuryaKumar Yadav is one of the top batsmen for MI

I believe this batsman has not been credited as much as he should be, given his performances each season. When Suryakumar Yadav used to play for KKR, he would come down the order as a finisher and in some seasons, he proved to be one of the standout performers for them who wasn't really talked about at all. In the last 2 seasons, however, he has really come to his own. He has gotten a chance to bat high up the order for MI and he has proven the faith of team management absolutely right. From a wide choice of batsmen in Mumbai Indians, I could pick only one who is expected to be the highlight performer of the game. Suryakumar Yadav might just come to his own in this game, you need to set your Dream XI prediction right by including him in there. 

MS Dhoni 

MS Dhoni might bat up the order

In the absence of Suresh Raina who had to walk out of this season due to personal reasons, MS Dhoni is destined to bat a bit high up the order. Considering the kind of batsman he is and the amount of time he has not played a single cricketing game, there wouldn't be any batsman in CSK who is hungry for runs as much as the captain cool himself. Although Watson, Faf, Rayudu will come before him, MSD has a better chance to click the most since he plays spin efficiently and knows when to knock it out of the park and when to play it safe. If he clicks in this game, there's no stopping him for the rest of the season and you can be absolutely sure about it. 

There are other players such as Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Shane Watson, Deepak Chahar who are not included in this list which might shock most of you people. I have analyzed based on the conditions and the players suited in such circumstances.
