Captain and Vice-Captain For MI vs CSK Dream11 Prediction of Today’s Match

The following players are recommended best for making them as Captain or Vice-Captain of the MI vs CSK Dream11 team.

  1. Hardik Pandya:
    The Indian all-rounder is in great form. You can get points for his batting as well as bowling and everyone knows how good a fielder he is. He has scored lots of runs for MI in the middle order and have won matches for MI from crucial situations.
  2. Rohit Sharma;
    One of the best openers in the world is a great option to havehim as a captain. He gets complete 20 overs to bat. Everyone knows what Rohit can do once he is set on crease.
  3. Ravindra Jadeja:
    The left arm spinner from India is a great choice to have as captain. As the wickets are suited for spiners, Jadeja can be the pick of the bowlers in the first match of IPL 2020. He is one the best fielders in the world so you also get points for his fielding and being a free stroke player, Dhoni might not hesitate to send him up the order.
  4. Shane Watson:
    As I mentioned above, keeping an opener as captain gives an extra benefit as he gets complete 20 overs to play. The additioinal benefit of keeping Watson as captain is that he is an all-rounder, so he might also bowl few overs that can bring good points.

Key Points for MI vs CSK 1st Dream11 IPL Match

  • The pitch is going to support the spinners. So make your team accordingly.
  • The bowling line up of MI looks more destructive then CSK. But on the other hand, CSK bowlers are very much experienced to outclass the MI batting lineup
  • As Raina won’t be available for this year’s IPL, the combination of CSK team will get disturbed.
  • As Dhoni is retired from International Cricket, we can see him batting up the order more fearlessly.

Last Words:

It has always been an amazing competitive competition with both teams fighting hard to win matches. The MI team is a young and talented side where as CSK is a team with most experienced players of T20. The biggest advantage for CSK is the skipper himself. The calmness which he brings to the game and his team is just amazing to watch. It is good for both the teams that they compete in the early stages of the tournament because we have seen in past years that as the league goes both the teams become stronger and stronger, especially Mumbai Indians.
