They will look to inflict another loss upon the Mumbai Indians, whose primary goal in IPL 2022 would be to try and avoid the wooden spoon.

Today’s CSK vs MI Dream11 match top picks
Ishan Kishan: Ishan Kishan scored a decent half-century against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in his previous game, albeit in a losing cause. The Mumbai Indians keeper has blown hot and cold in IPL 2022, although his explosive ability is undeniable. With Ishan finding some form in recent games, he is a good addition to your CSK vs MI Dream11 fantasy team.
Ruturaj Gaikwad: While Devon Conway has stolen the show for CSK in recent games, Gaikwad has also found form, showing signs of his usual best. While Gaikwad is known to be a slower starter, he makes up for it with his ability against spin and knack for scoring big runs. Given his recent form and record against the Mumbai Indians, Gaikwad is a must-have in your CSK vs MI Dream11 fantasy team.
Moeen Ali: Moeen Ali has been in decent form in the last few games, impressing with his off-spin in the middle overs. In addition to his bowling, Moeen is an explosive batter who loves taking on the spinners. With Moeen's skill-set bound to come into play, he is one to watch out for in the game.
Jasprit Bumrah: Jasprit Bumrah finally found bowling form in IPL 2022, picking up a fifer against KKR earlier in the week. The Indian pacer has been effective with the new ball and in the death overs, holding him in good stead. Given the conditions and his form, Bumrah can be backed to sustain his newfound form today.
