In the next match of the Indian T20 league, the lowest team in the points table Chennai will face one of the top teams in the tournament so far Mumbai. The match is scheduled to be played at Sharjah Cricket Stadium on 23rd October 2020. Given the current scenario Chennai is definitely going to have a hard time beating the defending champions. Chennai who has played 10 matches so far in the league has been able to win just three matches. With seven defeats in the league it sits on the bottom of the points table. While on the other side Mumbai has been doing great until recently when for the first time in the history of cricket, a dual super over took place. Mumbai in its previous match lost one of the most exciting matches ever against thoroughly underestimated Indian T20 league Punjab.
Mumbai made a decent score of 176 runs in response to which Punjab leveled the score. In the first super over Punjab tied the score of 5 runs then again in the 2nd super over Punjab beat Mumbai with the help of Gayle’s sixer and Mayank Agarwal’s brilliant fours. Mumbai lost that game and with that its position has been dropped from no.1 to No.3. Mumbai has played Nine matches out of which it has won Six games.
While on the other hand Chennai in its last match, was somehow crawled to the score of 125 runs which Rajasthan in response made it with an ease. Chennai has a terrifying T20 season this year. The team’s batsmen, bowlers and even the game strategy have seemed to work for them. Coming up next they are going to face one of the strongest teams in the ongoing tournament. Chennai would need to perform extraordinarily to win the game. For more updates, keep reading.
Total: 29 games
This year the two teams have one encounter so far in which Chennai surprisingly won. However, if we talk about the last five matches, then Mumbai sure has an upper hand with 4 wins.
