What becomes of the September 19th 2021 IPL match between Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai India?
Remember these are two side with top talents, string teams and solid strategies in IPL and other cricket competitions.
In fact, the CSKs and MIs have banked more titles than any other Indian team over the last two decades.
The interesting bit is the one of an unrelenting Mumbai Indians winning two IPL trophies back-to-back in 2019 and last year, 2020.
MI also took the 2017 championship but were momentarily disposed the status in 2018 by Chennai Super Kings.
CSK (50%) vs MI (50%)
Chennai and Mumbai cricket teams’ analysis
MI has more silverware in their trophy cabinet with 5 IPL titles and 2 Champions League T20 medals.
The Chennai Kings side also has a significant number of awards, 3 from IPL and 2 out of the CLT20 competition.
It is actually a pretty fruitful campaign for the latter as they only lost one out of their last five matches while MI suffered two blows.
This does not guarantee a CSK win because they have only won 13 matches from their 31 encounters with Mumbai Razors.
Therefore, both teams know how it’s done and are now only 2 points apart. So, is Mumbai Indians better than Chennai Super Kings? On record, yes, but as per the current season’s performances, the opinion is slightly contestable.
