The second half of the Indian Premier League kicks off on 19th September 2021.

Chennai Super Kings vs Mumbai Indians 30th Match IPL 2021
Team News for Chennai Super Kings
Chennai Super Kings might miss two key players due to a mandatory six-day quarantine rule – Faf du Plessis and Sam Curran. Du Plessis, who was captaining Saint Lucia Kings in CPL, has also suffered a groin injury and is yet to recover from it. This will be a big blow for Chennai as he was their leading run-scorer in the first leg of IPL 2021 with 320 runs in 7 matches. Robin Uthappa should replace him as the opener.
Chennai camp has been boosted by the availability of Josh Hazlewood for the second half of the tournament. Dwayne Bravo should take the place of Sam Curran after guiding his team to win in the CPL 2021. Imran Tahir should be in for Lungi Ngidi after having a successful CPL season with 13 wickets in 11 matches.
Likely playing 11 of Chennai Super Kings

Team News for Mumbai Indians
Mumbai Indians have the most stable squad among all the teams. All their players will be available from the start of the second phase. Mumbai camp has confirmed that opener Quinton de Kock will be available from the first game. De Kock scored 153 runs in the T20I series against Sri Lanka last week with two unbeaten fifties.
Kieron Pollard is also back in the camp after Trinbago Knight Riders got knocked out in the semis of CPL 2021. Pollard scored an astonishing 87 runs off 34 balls with 8 sixes against the Super Kings in the first leg of the tournament to guide Mumbai to a last-ball victory. Mumbai should not change their winning combination.

Betting Predictions for Chennai Super Kings vs Mumbai Indians 30th Match IPL 2021

They beat Chennai in the first phase of the IPL 2021 by 4 wickets while chasing 219 runs. Mumbai scored 135 runs in the last 9 overs of that match.
