MI vs CSK: Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings will face each other in IPL today. This match will be held at Wankhede Stadium. Chennai’s team is still in the race for the IPL playoffs. In such a situation, every match is very important for him. If she loses a single match, she can be out of the race for the playoffs. However, even after winning all the remaining matches, Chennai will have to depend on the results of other matches to reach the playoffs. Amidst all this, the biggest problem for Chennai is that it will have to play all its other matches without star player Ravindra Jadeja. Read an analysis on who will be able to make up for him in the team..
Shivam Dubey replaced Jadeja in the last match
Ravindra Jadeja did not play in the last match of Chennai Super Kings. In this match, Shivam Dubey was given a place in the playing XI in place of Jadeja. Although Shivam Dubey has been a part of Chennai’s playing XI along with Jadeja in the opening matches of this season. Shivam Dubey bats well but his performance in bowling is not of Ravindra Jadeja’s level. Then he bowls at medium pace while Jadeja is a spinner. Although Chennai played a massive 91-run victory over Delhi in this match without Jadeja.
Mitchell Santner can replace Jadeja
New Zealand spinner Mitchell Santner is the right player to fill Jadeja’s shortfall. Santner also bowls excellent spin and then he has also shown a batting pattern like Jadeja on many occasions. Santner is also adept at playing big shots. However, Chennai will not need to feed Santner in the playing XI. Even without Jadeja in Chennai’s team, there are spinners like Mahish Teekshna and Moeen Ali, in this Moeen Ali can do wonders with the bat too.
Chennai will repeat the playing XI of the previous match!
In the absence of Jadeja in the last match, Chennai captain Dhoni did not give place to any other bowler all-rounder. He had decided to give depth to the batting by including Shivam Dubey again in the playing XI. Dhoni had got the entire over with his five bowlers. The role of the fifth bowler was played by Moeen Ali. This combination of Chennai was also successful and the team got a huge victory by 91 runs. In such a situation, in the match against Mumbai, Chennai can go with the same playing XI.
