Gujarat Titans were the team to beat and won most of their games by big margins. They are through to the next round of the playoffs and have already won 9 out of 12 games, they have played most of their key players in good form. CSK have struggled since the start of the season and must play for pride from now on. It will be interesting to see if they can surprise everyone to win this game against a tough opponent.

MS Dhoni’s team, Chennai Super Kings, have been making headlines for bad runs in recent days with Ravindra Jadeja’s injury and the controversy surrounding it. This affected Chennai Super Kings in the last game against Mumbai Indians where they lost by 5 wickets after being knocked out for just 97 runs. Chennai Super Kings cannot make it to the playoffs from here and MS Dhoni would love to restore the lost pride by winning this game.

Fly-half Devon Conway and Ruturaj Gaikwad had a poor outing against Mumbai and these two players would be key to CSK’s success. They had done well in the last games. Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu and Robin Uthappa must bring their experience to play in the middle order. With MS Dhoni, Shivam Dube and Dwayne Bravo to follow, there’s some serious firepower in this batting lineup.

Pacer Mukesh Choudhary has received plenty of praise and he will have to make early breakthroughs with Simarjeet Singh with the new ball. Dwayne Bravo was one of the best bowlers for Chennai Super Kings in the tournament and there would be high hopes for him. The team would also like to see some good bowling from Maheesh Theekshana and Moeen Ali in this game as this offense lacks depth.

Hardik Pandya’s team is having a wonderful run in the tournament. They became the first team to book a spot in the next round of the playoffs after their comfortable 62-point win over newcomers Lucknow Super Giants. Their batsmen and bowlers did well in the tournament. Hardik Pandya would aim to build momentum here and gain confidence from his win against Chennai Super Kings earlier in the season.

Fly-half Shubman Gill has had a good run in the tournament and is forming a formidable opening pair with Wriddhiman Saha. Hardik Pandya played well and he would aim to partner with Matthew Wade in the middle order. It was the order from lower midfield that made the difference for the team, and they would be looking for runs from the trio of David Miller, Rahul Tewatia and Rashid Khan as they all appeared to be in good contact.

Pacer Mohammad Shami played brilliantly in the last game and the team would love to see a good show from him sharing the new ball with Hardik Pandya. Rashid Khan has been a thorn in the side of opponents, and he adds to the team’s bowling strengths along with Alzarri Joseph. The team would also expect to see tight spells from Ravisrinivasan Sai Kishore and Yash Dayal in this game.

Mumbai would see slightly overcast skies on May 15 and bowlers could take advantage of these conditions after the kind of beatings they had to endure. The wicket was good at hitting where the ball hit the bat well. The side hitter would aim to score above 180 runs first to feel safe here.

Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai is one of the best T20 venues for batsmen. The field is flat and the outfield lightning fast allowing batsmen to easily play their shots on this surface. Stimulators have to be smart on this surface and use their variations to be successful. Spinners stop the ball at the batsmen and spin sharply.

The wicket there has been tricky at times, making it difficult for the team that strikes first to establish a score. Most teams have won games here by chasing. Therefore, it is expected that the team that wins the toss will not hesitate to invite the opposition to strike first in this game.

According to weather.com, the temperature on May 15 Sunday morning will be 33 degrees Celsius and drop to 29 degrees at night. There is a 5-8% chance of rain. The humidity will be around 66-74%.
