Indian T20 League 2024

MUM vs CHE, 29th Match

 

Preview

One of the biggest matches of the IND T20 league history is all set to begin on Sunday(14th April 2024) at 07:30 PM in the 17th season of the IND T20 league at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. The 5-time league winner Mumbai(MUM) will square off against 5-time league winner Chennai(CHE) in the Mother of all battles in match 29. A staggering contest awaits between the new skippers of their respective sides Hardik Pandya and Ruturaj Gaikwad who will feature in their first-ever EL Clasico as skippers of MUM and CHE respectively. 

The 2020 league winner MUM is currently placed at 7th position in the league tally with 2 wins out of 5 league games, on the other hand, the defending champions CHE hold the third position in the points table with 3 wins out of 5 games. This blistering match promises to be nothing short of the same as it brings together the two most successful franchises in the history of the IND T20 League.

Mumbai won their last league match comfortably against Bengaluru(BLR) when they hosted the southern side in match 25. The storming knocks of Ishan Kishan(69) and Surya Kumar(52) off 19 balls powered MUM to secure a 7-wicket win while chasing down 197 runs. Ruturaj Gaikwad-led CHE secured two crucial points against Kolkata(KOL) at Eden Gardens in the match 22 while chasing 138 runs. Thanks to the courtesy of skipper Ruturaj Gaikwad who scored an unbeaten 67 off 58 balls to guide his side to cross the line pompously in 17.4 overs.

In the head-to-head battle, these two dynamic forces MUM and CHE have collided 36 times in IND T20 League history. Out of these 36 matches, Chennai has won 16 whereas Mumbai has won 20 games. However, in the head-to-head battle at Wankhede, the Hosts MUM and the Visitors CHE have locked horns in 11 league matches so far. Of these 11 matches between the two sides, MUM has won 7 matches and CHE just won 4 matches. However, when these two sides met each other last time in this competition CHE won both matches comfortably against Mumbai at home and away under the leadership of MS Dhoni.

Though two legends of this format Rohit Sharma and MS Dhoni won't be leading their respective sides still their contributions on the field are going to matter in this titanic clash. It is expected to be a thrilling bout between these two sides however, either one of them will have the last laugh.

Pitch and Weather Report

The surface at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai is a batter’s paradise. Hence, a high-scoring encounter can be expected on such a pitch. Therefore opting to bowl first and having a target in sight could prove to be a wise decision Maximum temperature of 31 degrees Celsius with 63% humidity and 18 km/h is projected for the day at this venue.

As a result, we anticipate that both skippers will want to chase in the second innings and will choose to bowl first if they win the toss. The batting team would love to post over 200-210 runs on this track to give something for the bowlers in the second innings to defend for.

Match Prediction

This looks set to be an excellent game with CHE looking like a well-oiled machine once again in their last game and the Hosts MUM showcasing their immense batting firepower in their win over Bengaluru(BLR). We expect a tight contest but, with match-winners in the bowling and batting department all in strong form, we back MUM to come out on top in this home match. Mumbai batters have come into form and have good depth in the batting lineup. As Hardik Pandya and Co. are the hosts, they stand as the favourites to win this match.
