Two of the most successful teams in the history of Indian Premier League (IPL) will be locking horns against each other at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in the finals of the ongoing VIVO IPL 2019.
Mumbai secured a place in the finals defeating Chennai in the qualifier 1 at MA Chidambaram. Chennai had to defeat Delhi Capitals in qualifier 2 to get a place in the finals.
Match Prediction :
Mumbai Indians will have the momentum going into the finals as they have already defeated Chennai in all 3 encounters this season. The confidence of defeating CSK in their home ground 2 times including the victory in first qualifier will boost the morale for Mumbai. Chennai on the other hand will be looking to turn things around in the big finals. Overall, a competitive game of cricket would be seen today.
I am backing Mumbai to win this game and lift the title. The game looks 75-25 in favor of Mumbai. Mumbai’s batting looks good with de Kock and Rohit opening the innings. Surya Kumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan were brilliant in the last match against CSK. Hardik has been in splendid form with the bat this season and the hard hitting Carribean Kieron Pollard can turn the match around with his batting. MI has one of the best bowling unit with pacers Lasith Malinga and Jasprit Bumrah. Krunal Pandya and Rahul Chahar have been doing a decent job as well.
Probable Playing XI of Mumbai Indians:
Quinton de Kock
Surya Kumar Yadav
Probable Playing XI of Chennai Super Kings
Faf du Plessis
