IPL 2021: MI vs CSK, Match 27: Pitch Report, Probable XIs and Match Prediction

In the 27th match of the ongoing IPL, Mumbai Indians (MI) will clash with Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi.

MI were having a difficult time at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, where they won only two out of their five matches. But, it looks like the Arun Jaitley Stadium has turned their fortunes where they registered a comprehensive win against Rajasthan Royals (RR). Rohit Sharma & Co. will be hoping for a string of victories from here on. They will be fielding with the same side that played in the last match.

On the other hand, CSK are placed at the top of the IPL 2021 points-table. They have been consistent, and every now and then, some player has taken the onus to perform for them. MS Dhoni will not tinker with the winning combination right now but will hope for his bowlers to dominate the show.
