MI vs CSK Final Match Prediction : Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings are the two finalists for the summit clash of Indian Premier League to be held on Sunday at Hyderabad. Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings have been up against each other three times this season.
Mumbai Indians led by Rohit Sharma have completely outclassed them in all three matches, winning them by significant margins. Both teams will square up for the fourth time in the tournament as whoever wins this will hold their fourth IPL title in the history of the showpiece event.
Chennai Super Kings
After losing the first qualifier against MI, CSK made an impressive comeback, beating Delhi Capitals in the second qualifier on Friday. CSK have been quite vulnerable against Mumbai Indians in this season, given they have lost all three they have played against MI. However, the top-order has looked good in the previous match as both Watson and DU Plessis scored respective half-centuries on Friday.
Ambati Rayudu has also come back into form with the scores of 42 and 20-not out in the last game. The batting is certainly looking promising as we can expect a good game of cricket on Sunday.
MS Dhoni will once again be the biggest bet for CSK. A match-winner, Dhoni needs to play one of the best innings of his life to win the final against MI. In the bowling department, the onus to take the wickets will once again fall on the shoulders of Harbhajan Singh, Imran Tahir, and Deepak Chahar.
Mumbai Indians have been in an outstanding run in the tournament and the foremost reason for that has been none other than their bowlers. MI wicket-taking ability has perhaps got them a notch ahead of other sides in the IPL this season. Jasprit Bumrah, Lasith Malinga and Rahul Chahar have been the most successful bowlers for Mumbai, while Quinton De Kock and Rohit Sharma will be the biggest bets for MI.
Right-handed batsman Surya Kumar Yadav played a match-winning innings against CSK in the first qualifier, scoring as many as 71 runs off 54 deliveries. He will also be full of confidence even as Hardik Pandya would be eking to strike some huge sixes on Sunday.
