Mumbai Indians take on Chennai Super Kings in Match 12 of the 2023 Indian Premier League on Saturday evening. This game sees the two most successful IPL sides go head to head, although neither had a strong season in 2022 or have got off to a particularly good start in 2023. Read on as we preview this clash. The game gets underway at the Wankhede Stadium at 19:30 local time.
Mumbai Indians need their key players to perform and if they do then Chennai Super Kings will struggle to keep up with them. We expect to see a much more competitive showing from Mumbai Indians in this game.
Chennai Super Kings are a team packed with talent but have struggled for consistency over the last 12 months. However, there were plenty of positive signs in their win in Match 6.
