Welcome to We know Cricket’s MI vs CSK 2019 Dream11 Team & Prediction, Playing 11, Match preview, and Team news. The 44th game of the IPL will be played at the Eden Gardens Stadium, Kolkata. The last time these two sides met, Mi comfortable beat the CSK and ended their winning streak. Both these sides play well at their home ground and since this time, the match takes place in Chennai, it’s not going to be easy for the Mumbai Indians to walk over Dhoni’s men easily. Read on to find our match analysis and Dream 11 match predictions!
Match Preview: The Biggest Rivalry is Back!
It is again that time of the year, the two juggernauts of Indian T20 cricket cafe against each other, their previous meeting this season resulted in MI victory thanks to a wonderful bowling performance by the returning Lasith Malinga. The head to head records are still in favor of MI but CSK has not lost a home this season and has conceded 170+ runs once at home this season.
Both teams have kept reputations intact this season and are in the top half of the table, CSK will most definitely qualify for the knock out stages (Which is obvious and expected even before a season is started). MI requires a win or two in the last four matches to book their slot in top 4. Their last four fixtures are against CSK, SRH, and two matches against KKR and might prove to be a very tricky run.
We do not expect Dhoni to be complacent and judging by CSKs home record this season, it will be a very fun fixture as usual and will be very hard for MI.
WeKnowcricket’s Hot Take 🔥
We are sick of watching MI starting with H Pandya (not every time we know), he has not taken wickets at the starting regularly to justify the decision. We believe he is a much effective bowler in the middle overs(like Mohammed Shami). MI has a lot of options now especially now with emerging talents line R Chahar and J Yadav. In Chennai, the pitch favors spinners and we expect them to start with Chahar/Markande or with K Pandya.
With the race for the semis in full flow, it’d be interesting to see who gets the upper hand tonight and gets one step closer to that prestigious semi final spot! Let’s see which players you should have and which ones to avoid in your Dream 11 Teams.

RR vs KKR 2019 Dream11 Team & Suggestions:
Wicket-keeper: Dhoni is CSKs top scorer and De Cock is MIs top scorer it is impossible to go wrong here. De Cock comes up the order so is, of course, a better choice and is a very good player of spin bowling
Batsmen: There are a lot of batsmen who have underperformed this season but most of those batsmen are in these two teams, there are no exceptional performers this year so, you will have to be very smart with your choices. First choice if Faf du Plessis, anchors are highly effective on this pitch. Most of MI’s batting options are all-rounders. The only two obvious and necessary picks are S Yadav And R Sharma. My last pick is Shane Watson, he did not look very confident last time even though he scored a lot of runs but we believe in his class
All-rounders: These will be the difference maker today and we have made quite a few controversial choices, first is opting for Krunal Pandya instead of his brother and seconds choice is Sir Jadeja, our faith in him has been repaid every single time.
Bowlers: Three CSK picks, starting with D Chahar, who is unplayable at the start, second is Imran the Runner Tahir, and third is Bhajji Pa(If he is played otherwise we will go for Bumrah). My only pick from MI is R Chahar.
Captain & Vice Captain: Dhoni, Rohit, Suryakumar, Hardik, Tahir, Chahar- all are good bets.
MI vs CSK 2019 Dream11 Team Suggestion #1:
Rohit, De Cock, S Yadav, Faf du Plessis, Watson, K Pandya, Jadeja, D Chahar, H Singh, Tahir, and R Chahar
Captain: De Cock/Watson VC: Tahir/Krunal Pandya
MI vs CSK 2019 Dream11 Team Suggestion #2:
Rohit, Raina, Faf Du Plessis, Dhoni, R Jadeja, H Pandya, K Pandya, D Chahar, Tahir, R Chaar, and Bumrah
Captain: Rohit VC: Watson
