MI Vs CSK IPL Final Pitch Report – Key Players
Mumbai Indians – Jasprit Bumrah, Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, and Quinton de Kock
Chennai Superkings – Ravindra Jadeja, Imran Tahir, Faf du Plessis, and Ambati Rayadu
While this clash might have been tentative to call earlier in the tournament, the way the season has run the course for both the sides, we have an easier call to make. As both the franchisees scour for their fourth trophy, we expect MI to come out of this as clear-cut winner.
Despite CSK coming through in the second qualifier, the one was more of Delhi’s own doing rather than CSK being the clinical side. There are still many unanswered questions for the unit, especially in the pace department with Shardul Thakur being given just the one over against the Capitals. Also, Harbhajan has kept leaking runs and the middle-order is far from reliable.

On the other hand, there has not been a more complete outfit than Mumbai this season. They’ve blown apart sides with their exemplary functioning and we expect them to do to CSK what they did to SRH last season. Expect the Indians to make it four wins out of four against CSK and add into their kitty their fourth title.
