The second phase of IPL 2021 is all set to commence on Sunday (September 19) as defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) lock horns with Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. Mumbai, who are currently fourth in the points table, will look to make a winning a winning start and keep them floating in the top four.
Rohit Sharma & Co won’t mind the switch to UAE one bit, where the conditions engulfed them in a much warmer embrace last year. However, the skipper will miss the first tie owing to a slight niggle on his toes alongside ace all-rounder Hardik Pandya. West Indies all-rounder Kieron Pollard will lead the side in his absence.
The likes of Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav have been in superlative forms which will put Mumbai Indians in high stead. Punjab-born batsman Anmilpreet Singh is all set to make his debut in the IPL. Their bowlers particularly the fast bowlers too can expect a flip in their fortunes after making a poor start in India.
ARE. YOU. READY

On the other hand, CSK would’ve perhaps felt the halt came at the worst time for them – in the midst of a dramatic resurrection after the lows of 2020. They don’t have good memories of the UAE and would be keen to change their record when they go up against Mumbai Indians.
Faf du Plessis, who looked unlikely to make it to the playing XI, has regained full fitness and will be available for selection in the playing XI.
