MI vs CSK Match 12 Probable Playing XIs
MI like the last game will probably go with the same strategy interms of utilizing the Impact Player’s Rule as they can bring in Australia’s left-arm seamer Jason Behrendorff to bowl in the powerplay. If the pitch offers a bit of swing early Jason can be a difficult bowler to deal with the left-arm angel.
CSK may bring in Sisanda Magala in the first playing XI in place of Mitchell Santer as he very recently took his 1st fifer against Netherlands in the ODI series. Tushar Deshpande can come in as an impact player if CSK bowls first in place of Ambati Rayudu. Tushar is a young prospect who will only get better with each passing day and it will be a good strategy by CSK to keep backing him throughout this season.
Below are the MI vs CSK Match 12 probable playing XIs for both bat and ball options.
Probable bat-first XI: 1 Rohit Sharma (capt), 2 Ishan Kishan (wk), 3 Suryakumar Yadav, 4 Cameron Green, 5 Tilak Varma, 6 Nehal Wadhera, 7 Tim David, 8 Hrithik Shokeen, 9 Arshad Khan, 10 Kumar Karthikeya/Piyush Chawla, 11 Jofra Archer

MI vs CSK Match 12 Dream11 Prediction
Ishan Kishan has been under criticism on social media as he was picked with a very high price tag which he couldn’t justify till now but we have picked him in our MI vs CSK dream11 fantasy team as he is a special talent and a big match-winning knock from him is just round the corner. Because we have had other wicket-keeping options we couldn’t fit the legend MS Dhoni in our fantasy XI even though he has simply been outstanding with the bat so far in IPL 2023.
Have a look at our MI vs CSK Match 12 Dream11 Team for Grand Leagues.
Wicket-Keepers – Devon Conway, Ishan Kishan
Batsmen – Suryakumar Yadav (c), Ruturaj Gaikwad, Tilak Verma
All-rounders – Moeen Ali, Ravindra Jadeja, Cameron Green (vc), Ben Stokes
Bowlers – Jofra Archer, Rajvardhan Hangargekar
Suryakumar Yadav is our go-to choice for captaincy because of his match-winning abilities and the short boundaries at the Wankhede Stadium may help him play his blistering match-winning knock and entertain the buzzing crowd of Mumbai. Cameron Green is our vice-captain who is a very handy all-rounder and he was picked after an intense battle at the IPL auction so we hope his best performance is just around the corner.
MI vs CSK Head-to-Head Stats
Overall Mumbai Indians have the edge over CSK as they have won 20 games while CSK won only 14 in all IPL seasons. However, one thing to note is it is very difficult to beat Mumbai in Mumbai as huge crowd support often brings the best out of their players and especially their captain Rohit Sharma who absolutely loves playing in his home ground.

MI vs CSK Match 12 Prediction
Bookmakers have favored Mumbai Indians to win this match against Chennai Super Kings with a winning probability of around 52%. However, lack of form is a major concern for MI while CSK looks in much better shape interms of batting while bowling also remains a huge concern for CSK.
We predict Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, and Tilak Varma to score the bulk of runs for Mumbai in this game while Cameron Green & Moeen Ali are our top bowling options who are expected to cause major trouble on this batting-friendly wicket. Both Green & Moeen are all-rounders so we can expect them to score some crucial runs as well.
