Mumbai Indians resume their IPL 2021 campaign against Chennai Super Kings in Dubai on Saturday. This match also kickstarts the second half of the IPL. The side has beaten CSK in six out of the last seven meetings. Meanwhile, Gautam Gambhir says Mumbai Indians will have an advantage in the second half of the season.
Speaking to Star Sports ahead of the MI vs CSK clash, Gautam Gambhir has previewed all the teams and said that Mumbai Indians will have an advantage over the other teams.
“See again, Mumbai probably will be having that advantage, because first they’ve won it last time in Abu Dhabi and Dubai in UAE, well and they’re going back to the same place and they’re in a position where they can actually finish in the top two as well,” Gambhir said on the Star Sports Show GamePlan.

Gambhir further said that franchises like KKR, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Punjab Kings can find it difficult to make it to the final four. SRH is placed last on the points table, Punjab and Kolkata are placed sixth and seventh respectively.
“If you look at other franchises especially franchises like KKR or for that matter even Sunrisers (SRH), it’s pretty difficult for them to qualify or for that matter even Punjab Kings. But if you ask me one franchise who’s going to have an advantage with this break, is Mumbai Indians.”
Meanwhile, former Indian opener Aakash Chopra has backed Mumbai to beat CSK in the first game of the second half.
“I am putting my neck on the block, you can make the memes. I am going with Mumbai Indians to win” Chopra said.
In his other two predictions about the game, Aakash Chopra said that the batting team will get an explosive start. He further said that the first boundary will be scored in the first 10 balls. In his second prediction, Chopra said the batting side will lose an early wicket inside the first four overs.
