Mumbai Indians v Chennai Super Kings betting tips & predictions
Adam Drury's tips for the first match of the IPL 2020 feature a winner, individual runs and a leading wicket-taker for the Chennai Super Kings.
Mumbai Indians to win
The reigning champions are a nice bet to get their 2020 campaign off to a winning start.
They beat Chennai in the 2019 final and have added Trent Boult to a bowling attack that already featured Jasprit Bumrah and Lasith Malinga.
Quinton de Kock to score over 24.5 runs
De Kock was the third-highest run-scorer in the 2019 IPL, averaging 35.26 across 16 innings.
He has been in outstanding form in this format since then, too, passing this mark in six of his last eight T20 internationals.
Rohit Sharma to hit over 2.5 fours
Rohit was only the 15th-highest run-scorer in the 2019 IPL, but still hit the third-most fours.
The Mumbai captain is capable of playing classical cricket shots as well as using brute force, so is always a good bet to get his team’s innings off to a flyer with a few boundaries.
Imran Tahir to be top Chennai Super Kings wicket-taker
Tahir comes into this tournament sharp having performed well in the CPL over the last month.
He would have at least tied in this market in four of his last eight appearances in that competition, and was the IPL’s leading wicket-taker in 2019.
