IPL 1st Qualifier CSK vs MI Preview – Key Battles

Rohit Sharma Vs Imran Tahir

This is built to a cliff-hanger and perhaps one of the most exciting clashes in the match will be Rohit Sharma against Imran Tahir. Having found himself back among the runs with a half-century against KKR in his side’s final group stage match, the opener will be looking to be among the runs once again. He and Quinton de Kock have delivered innings of worth in the opening partnership and they’ll be eyeing another profound stand that can beleaguer CSK.

It won’t be all that easy though for Rohit especially with the treacherous nature of the surface a known entity. CSK will go in with a three-spin prolonged attack, one which will see Dhoni employ spin early on against Rohit. Fully aware of the Rohit’s travesties against the slower bowler, Imran will look to rile him up and send him back cheaply inside the first 6 overs.

Faf du Plessis Vs Jasprit Bumrah

Whilst MI’s bit and part spinners have served them fortuitously this season, they’ll be aware that they are paper thin in that department. It leaves a huge brunt of the onus on the pace department to shoulder the bulk of the responsibility on their shoulders and deliver an incisive performance.

What works in their favour though is that in Jasprit Bumrah they have a spearhead, a bowler who can besmirch any batting unit in the world. The spearhead has the stellar ability to shape the ball both into and away from the batsmen and him against Faf du Plessis will make for some viewing.

Faf has been the main batsman for CSK and MI will know if they can send him back to the pavilion cheaply, CSK can collapse like a house of cards. Expect Bumrah to give it his all and be right on the money against him.

Rohit Sharma Vs MS Dhoni

One reason this clash is always so highly anticipated is that it sees Rohit Sharma and MS Dhoni square off against each other. While Dhoni missed both the previous matches against MI, he’ll be back for this one and looking to get his decisions right on against a franchisee they’ve hated facing in recent times. On the other hand, Rohit and the MI team management have shown flexibility this season, playing according to the need and nature of the game. A match where exemplary captaincy skills are going to come to the fore.
