Chennai Super Kings won the Indian Premier League‘s El Clasico matchup against Mumbai Indians by 7 wickets on Saturday at the Wankhede Stadium. As such, before the game, Aakash Chopra, an Indian Cricket analyst and expert, dropped in his predictions.
In the Mumbai Indians’ (MI) IPL 2023 match against the Chennai Super Kings(CSK), Aakash Chopra anticipates that Suryakumar Yadav and Cameron Green will contribute effectively with the bat .
“Suryakumar Yadav and Cameron Green will together score 65 or more runs. There is bounce and pace on this pitch, and help for the fast bowlers. We did see India win the match against Australia here, but the fast bowlers showed their charisma. So I am expecting more help for the fast bowlers once again,” he said.
3 or more wickets to be picked up by Jofra Archer and Deepak Chahar : Aakash Chopra
“Jofra and Chahar will together pick up three or more wickets. Deepak Chahar has had an extremely ordinary tournament thus far, but it will not remain so. This is the surface that will bring the best out of him. So I am saying he will pick up at least one or two wickets,” he opined on the wicket column for the IPL clash.
“Jofra Archer will also like this pitch a lot. Get him to bowl with the new ball here because it will be necessary to dismiss at least one of Devon Conway and Ruturaj Gaikwad at the start. You can bowl bouncers to Ruturaj,” he added.
“10 or more sixes should be hit. We come here with the expectation of a high-scoring encounter. You definitely see a chasing bias at the Wankhede. Whoever wins the toss will bowl. Having said that, I think sixes should be hit,” said Chopra regarding the number of maximums in the IPL game. “I am saying that Mumbai will finally open their account,” he concluded. As the game went on, it was a comprehensive victory for the Chennai Super Kings by 7 wickets with 11 balls remaining. Fans were quick to troll Aakash Chopra for another set of horrible IPL predictions.
