Three-time IPL champions Mumbai Indians are eyeing a comeback in the game against Chennai Super Kings. The match will be played at the Wankhede Stadium on Wednesday.
Both the teams have three IPL titles in their trophy cabinet. However in this season things are not looking good for MI. They are currently placed in the second-last position of the points table while CSK are the leaders.
While MI lost their previous match against Kings XI Punjab, CSK are still unbeaten in this year’s tournament. Still MI believe they can overcome the hurdle of the yellow army. MI’s players like Rohit Sharma, Quinton de Kock and Hardik Pandya have already shown what they are capable of.

De Kock praises MI’s middle order
There were recent questions raised against MI’s middle order. But South Africa’s wicketkeeper-batsman Quinton de Kock have brushed aside everything. He has backed his teammates and said that he is confident that they will recover soon.
In an interview to the Mumbai Indians’ official website, De Kock said, “I think in T20s it’s always important that one of your top three or top four batsmen bats through the middle overs at all times.”
“It’s always nice when you have one of the top three or top four batting in the last couple of overs. We haven’t really done that in this tournament so far. It’s not always easy to come into tough situations and then we lose quick wickets. It’s never easy and it puts you under more pressure than you should be. It is tough but I’m sure our batsmen will come back (stronger),” the South African added.
De Kock has also backed the Windies all-rounder Kieron Pollard and spoke about the strength of MI’s batting. “The beauty of our batting order is that you don’t have to rely on one person. There are so many people there in our batting order that can just win a game for us. So, we’re not too worried about Kieron. Obviously, he’s done so well for the team (in the past) and he will come back stronger for sure,” de Kock said.
