    So we are back to the biggest T20 spectacle of this year and now it is in Dubai.

    Dubai grounds are big so expecting a low scoring match.
    CSK has some injury concerns in Faf du plessis, Sam curran is set to miss this one as he just arrived.
    MI have no such issues.
    Will MI be able to take advantage of Faf's an Sam's likely absence?

    This is the el-classico of IPL. The 2 most successful t20 teams will go head to head in the opener. I know CSK is no longer the team it was once but they can still challenge Mumbai on their day.

    CSK should go for full revamp in next season mega auction.

    Dhoni, Raina, Rayudu, Bravo and Faf should go. No place for 35+ daddies. Should target elite current cricketers.

    27-4 Mentor gone early as well. Upto Sir and Ruturaj to dig in and score a few.

    Rayudu might still come out.. D Bravo and Thakur still to bat, this CSK batting line up is insane

    Gaikwad is proper batsman and a top prospect. Just 24 year old.

    You will see 50 ball 75 from Gaikwad quite often without any slog.

    He will easily slot into Team India post 2023 World cup when many slots will open up.

    Another aspect I like about him is the rane of shot. He can play over extra cover, can square cut, hit straight as well as pull and lap sweep. Also uses his feet against spinners.

    All above shots were in today's inning of 88 of around 54 balls facing Bumrah, Milne and Boult.

    Spinners will be important , 3 pacers plus Hardik is enough for those surfaces.

    Tons of matches will be played in uae by the time wc rolls around. They will slow down considerably.

    That's probably why pitches will be green at start of ipl.

    T20 cricket is such a low grade third class format.

    Any team beats any team on a given day. There is no trueness to the quality of the team. The format is just a joke. It needs to be shelved for the good of all.

    That 8 ball 23 by Bravo is going to be the difference. MI needed such a cameo from someone.

    Our Cameo guys are Pollard and two pandyas.

    Pollard and Pandya Sr failed today as it is nature of the role to fail regularly. Hardik isn't playing.

    Pandya Sr is a bit of everything. Can hit but not to Pollard-hardik level, can bat sensibly but not to rohit-sky level.

    Ishan has some things still to work out in his game to become a complete ball shredder.

    Glad we won . But MI lost the plot at the end with the ball and with the bat. They need to get Rohit and Hardik back in the team.

    Poor batting display by MI and no wonder they lost.
    Blunder by both teams and hope they shake off the lethargy now

    IPL 2021 - Match 30 - CSK (156/6) beat MI (136/8) by 20 runs

    I absolutely didnīt expect Chennai to defend that low total. A good fightback with the bat, but I still wasnīt too confident, seeing the Mumbai batting line-up - although we canīt overlook the fact that both Rohit and Hardik were missing.

    Pollardīs wicket was the turning point. He has a good record against Chennai, and his dismissal sealed the match right there and then. Good going by the team, although Iīm not too sure that the UAE pitches suite the old legs of their batsmen. Still a long way to go, even though a place in the play-offs is pretty much confirmed. Their long, incredibly long, batting came to the rescue yesterday, of course.

    Yes, old legs on both sies of the team and especially the ones who are woefuly out of practice (Raina) struggled yesterday. Infact I was surprised to see Ruturaj Gaikwad play so well here after not so great starts in the Sri Lanka series.

    The break in the schedule may have disturbed the rhythm. We will know if that is so or not once DC take the field.

    Rainaīs short little innings was awful, plain awful, and embarrassing to the extremes. Dhoni too.... Well, letīs see how he goes in the remaining matches before I comment on him yet.
