THE TEAM NEWS

MUMBAI INDIANS

Coach: Mahela Jayawardene

Captain: Rohit Sharma

  • Mumbai Indians finished top of the group and then beat Chennai Super Kings in the first Qualifier on Tuesday by six wickets so confidence is good coming into this rematch after winning all three meetings with the Super Kings in IPL 2019.

  • They have an extremely settled team right now with the only real decision to make is over whether Jayant Yadav keeps his place and he has probably done enough to earn himself a starting spot after two good performances.

  • They will hope that their openers can make a better start although Suryakumar Yadav is proving to be a highly underrated figure in the middle order for them but they will want Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock to start well.

CHENNAI SUPER KINGS

Coach: Stephen Fleming

Captain: MS Dhoni

  • Chennai Super Kings comfortably dispatched Delhi Capitals on Friday in the second Qualifier by six wickets so they now face a rematch with Mumbai Indians and they will have to reverse their fortunes after losing all three matches to the Indians this season.

  • The form of Watson and Du Plessis in the match on Friday will have heartened CSK as both hit fifties so they will be key to victory here and Dhoni’s men will have to improve their scoring rate to test Mumbai more than their previous three matches.

  • They brought Shardul Thakur in for the match against the Capitals for an extra bowling option but they may be tempted to bring Murali Vijay back into the side to bolster their batting for this final.

THE PREDICTION

The biggest rivalry in IPL history will resume in the 2019 final as Mumbai Indians face off with the Chennai Super Kings in Hyderabad. Mumbai have won the previous three meeting with Chennai this season and they have had the edge in all facets over Dhoni’s men. Both teams may be inclined to bat first but the Super Kings will have to improve with the bat. They have not scored enough. Form is with the Indians and it is difficult to oppose them given their dominance over the Super Kings this year.
