Mumbai Indians vs Chennai Super Kings

Mumbai Indians Team News & Playing 11

MI Team News

Mumbai's only change for the qualifier saw Jayant Yadav replace Mitchell McClenaghan in their bowling attack. The extra spinner could be a good option again in Hyderabad, after he claimed the wicket of Suresh Raina in his first over. 

Mumbai have stuck with their top three throughout, with the exception of one game captain Rohit Sharma missed early in the tournament. Quinton de Kock opens with Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav bats at three.

The middle order is more fluid, with the big-hitting prowess of all-rounders Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya and Kieron Pollard seeing all three float around depending on the match situation. Though an all-rounder, Pollard has played purely as a big-hitting batsman in this year's IPL.

Ishan Kishan has returned for the last two games, meanwhile, and looks set to continue in that middle order too having replaced Evin Lewis.

Three of the remaining four places are occupied by bowlers Lasith Malinga, Jasprit Bumrah and Rahul Chahar. The final question then, is which of Yadav and McClenaghan will occupy the fourth out-and-out bowling spot. Jason Behrendorff played earlier in the tournament, but is now away with the Australian squad ahead of the World Cup.

MI Key Players

Suryakumar Yadav ensured Mumbai made light work of their chase against Chennai Super Kings in the qualifier, hitting ten fours on his way to 71 not out from 54 balls. He has scored 409 runs in the the tournament so far, with that his second half-century.

Only Quinton de Kock has scored for Mumbai in IPL 2019, with the South African hitting four half-centuries on his way to exactly 500 runs from 15 innings. De Kock's opening partner, Rohit Sharma, hit an unbeaten half-century in the final league game, meanwhile. He now has 390 runs from 14 innings in this year's tournament.

Where those three have laid the foundations, meanwhile, the middle order have then fired Mumbai to some big totals. Hardik Pandya's big-hitting has caught the eye most and he now has 393 runs at an extraordinary strike rate of 194.55.

Kieron Pollard is another big-hitting option, having scored 240 runs at a strike rate of 155.84.

Pandya is also among the team's leading wicket-taker, with 14 so far – albeit having been expensive. Lasith Malinga is similarly expensive but the Sri Lankan slinger has 15 wickets from his 11 games.

Jasprit Bumrah leads Mumbai's bowling charts with 17 wickets and an economy rate of 6.84, while Rahul Chahar moved to 12 wickets and an economy rate of 6.83 when he took 2-14 from his four overs in the qualifier.

MI Performance in IPL 2019

Mumbai won nine of their 14 matches in the IPL league stage, finishing top of the table on net run rate. After two defeats in their opening three games, they have lost just three times since – with three wins in a row earning them this place in the final.

They paid the price for conceding 213/6 against Delhi in their opening game, reaching just 176 in reply, but Jasprit Bumrah took 3-20 as they defended 187/8 to beat Royal Challengers Bangalore by six runs in the next match.

Defeat to Kings XI Punjab followed, despite Quinton de Kock hitting 60 in a total of 176/7, but Mumbai hit their stride thereafter and have barely looked back since.

Suryakumar Yadav's half-century and Hardik Pandya's 3-20 saw them defend 170/5 to beat Chennai by 37 runs next up, while Alzarri Joseph claimed 6-12 on his IPL debut as Mumbai bowled Sunrisers Hyderabad in a 40-run win in their last game at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium.

Kieron Pollard smashed 83 from 21 balls as they recorded the IPL's highest ever chase (198/7) to beat Kings XI Punjab and, despite failing to defend 187/5 in a four-wicket defeat to Rajasthan, they bounced back by beating Bangalore again.

This time, Lasith Malinga claimed 4-31 and De Kock top-scored in a successful chase of 172 to win by five wickets at the Wankhede. A 40-run defeat of Delhi Capitals followed, defending 168/5 as Rahul Chahar claimed 3-19, though three more wickets for Chahar against Rajasthan could not prevent a five-wicket defending 162.

Malinga's second four-wicket haul of the tournament helped Mumbai bowl Chennai out for 109 in a 46-run win, but Hardik Pandya's 34-ball 91 – though continuing his own form – could not prevent a 34-run defeat to Kolkata Knight Riders after conceding 232/2.

Mumbai have won three in a row since, however. Quinton de Kock hit 69* from 58 balls as Mumbai set 162/5 against Sunrisers Hyderabad. The match went to a super over, but Jasprit Bumrah restricted Sunrisers to 8/2 and Hardik Pandya fired Mumbai to victory.

A dominant nine-wicket win against Kolkata followed, reaching 134/1 in just 16.1 overs, to ensure they finished top of the league table.

That meant a qualifier against Chennai, and Mumbai restricted the Super Kings to 131/4 thanks to Chahar's 2-14. In reply, Yadav's 71* saw Mumbai claim a six-wicket win with nine balls to spare.

MI Team Form

Mumbai go into this game on the back of three consecutive wins. The first of those was courtesy of a super over, after both they and Sunrisers Hyderabad posted 162, but Mumbai have been in dominant form since.

Lasith Malinga's 3-35 led the way as they held Kolkata to 133/7 – a total they chased for the loss of just one wicket, with 3.5 overs to spare – while it was Rahul Chahar (2-14) and Suryakumar Yadav (71*) who took centre-stage, as Mumbai chased 132 to win the qualifier against Chennai Super Kings by six wickets.

MI IPL Final Record

Mumbai Indians have played in four IPL finals. They lost the first against Chennai in 2010, but they beat the Super Kings in both 2013 and 2015 before their most recent triumph, against Rising Pune Supergiant, in 2017.

The latter match was also played in Hyderabad and saw Krunal Pandya’s 47 lift Mumbai from 79/7 to a competitive 129/8 from their 20 overs. Jasprit Bumrah claimed 2-26 in reply, before Mitchell Johnson took two wickets in the final over, and there was a run out off the final ball, as Mumbai held on to win by one run.

Chennai Super Kings Team News & Playing 11

CSK Team News

Chennai opted for an extra bowling option in the second qualifier, with Shardul Thakur replacing Murali Vijay in the only change from their defeat to Mumbai. He bowled just one over, however, and the Super Kings must decide whether the extra bowling options is worth it for the final.

Kedar Jadhav will miss the final as he looks to recover from a shoulder injury in time for the World Cup, so the final spot does appear to be a shoot-out between Thakur and Vijay. Big-money signing Mohit Sharma has played just once this season and appears to be out of favour.

It means Chennai will have overseas pair Faf du Plessis and Shane Watson at the top of the order, followed by the experienced middle order of Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni and Dwayne Bravo - with Vijay an option to slot in if he returns.

Ravindra Jadeja is another all-rounder in the team, before Deepak Chahar, Harbhajan Singh and Imran Tahir complete the line-up. Harbhajan has been in and out of the team at times, often rotating with Thakur, but his leg-spin is likely to be favoured at Hyderabad.

CSK Key Players

Faf du Plessis and Shane Watson led Chennai Super Kings last time out, as the opening pair both hit 50 in the win against Delhi Capitals.

It was Du Plessis' third of the tournament, and he now has 370 runs from 11 innings, while Watson - who was their hero in last year's final - has 318 runs in 16 innings and looks to be peaking at the perfect time again.

MS Dhoni is their leading run scorer, however, with 414 runs from just 11 innings. He has only been dismissed four times and so averages 103.50, but Dhoni also boasts a good strike rate of 137.54.

Suresh Raina is the third Chennai batsman to have scored three half-centuries this season, meanwhile, contributing to his 375 runs in total.

With the ball, Imran Tahir is their stand-out bowler with 24 wickets from 16 games and an excellent economy rate of 6.65 runs per over. Ravindra Jadeja - as well as some useful late-order runs - has 15 wickets an even better economy rate of 6.36 runs per over, while Harbhajan Singh has only gone for a fraction above seven an over on his way to 16 wickets.

Deepak Chahar has 19 wickets, meanwhile, and hugely experienced all-rounder Dwayne Bravo has 11.

CSK Performance in IPL 2019

Chennai Super Kings made a storming start to the defence of their IPL title, winning seven of their first eight games. They won just two of the last six, however, as they missed out on top spot to Mumbai Indians on net run rate.

A further defeat to Mumbai forced them in to the second qualifier, where they managed to record just their third win in eight to snatch a place in the final.

It is a far cry from their early-season form, which started by bowling Royal Challengers Bangalore out for 70 on the opening night to win by seven wickets.

They followed that up by chasing 148 to beat Delhi Capitals by six wickets before MS Dhoni hit 75* in a total of 175/5 as they beat Rajasthan Royals by eight runs.

Defeat to Mumbai Indians ended their perfect start, as they reached just 133/8 in reply to 170/5, but they did come storming back - a 22-run win against Kings XI Punjab kicking off another winning streak.

Deepak Chahar claimed three wickets as they restricted Kolkata Knight Riders to 108/9 on their way to a seven-wicket win, before Dhoni hit another half-century in a last-ball, four-wicket win against Rajasthan.

Imran Tahir's four-wicket haul and Suresh Raina's unbeaten half-century earned another win against Kolkata - this time by five wickets chasing 162 - but Sunrisers Hyderabad held Chennai to 132/5 and won by six wickets to halt their momentum.

Results have been tricky since - MS Dhoni missing the final ball after hitting 84* from 48 balls in a one-run defeat to Royal Challengers Bangalore, for example.

Shane Watson's 96 from 53 balls helped them beat Sunrisers by six wickets, chasing 176, but it was only a brief respite as they were carted for 109 against Mumbai next up.

Imran Tahir took 4-12 as Delhi Capitals were bowled out for 99 in their next game, as the Super Kings claimed an 80-run win, but they lost their final group game to Kings XI Punjab and then started the play-offs with defeat to Mumbai.

They recaptured their winning form just in time, however, defeating Delhi Capitals again in the second qualifier to book a place in the final for a second consecutive year.

CSK Team Form

Having set the pace early on, Chennai Super Kings' form dipped going into these play-offs. They failed to defend 170/5 against Kings XI Punjab, after Faf du Plessis' 96 from 55 balls, to fall to a six-wicket defeat in their final group game.

They then lost to Mumbai in the first qualifier, when they posted just 131/4 and lost by six wickets, meaning they had to beat Delhi in the second qualifier to earn a spot in the final. They did exactly that, however, restricting the Capitals to 147/9 before their opening pair - Du Plessis and Shane Watson - led them to a six-wicket win.

CSK IPL Final Record

This will be Chennai Super Kings' eighth final, and their second in a row since returning from their two-year IPL ban.

Last year, they beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by eight wickets at Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium - thanks to Shane Watson's blistering century - to win on their return to the tournament.

They had lost their previous three finals, however, twice to Mumbai Indians and once to Kolkata Knight Riders. They did win the 2010 and 2011 editions though - beating Mumbai in the former and Royal Challengers Bangalore in the latter. Their other final was the first one, back in 2008, when they lost to Rajasthan Royals.

In total, Chennai Super Kings have won the IPL title three times and lost in the final on a further four occasions.
