Chennai Super Kings win by 8 wickets

Mumbai's Wankhede stadium is all geared up to witness another cricketing extravaganza as Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will be looking to beat two-time champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the Indian Premier League Final (IPL) on Sunday. Having failed to beat the former India skipper, Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led team in both the group stage meetings as well as the first Qualifier match this season, the Sunrisers are going to have to produce something out of the blue if they are to beat CSK on the fourth attempt and lift their second title today.

However, the Sunrisers will be more than optimistic about their chances of emerging winners as they have the meanest bowling attack in the league, with the lowest economy rates among all teams, boasting the likes of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Siddarth Kaul, and 19-year-old Afghanistan sensation Rashid Khan. They also have an inconsistent but formidable batting line-up, with captain Kane Williamson being the top run-getter this far this season.

Also, their dramatic victory over the Kolkata Knight Riders in the Qualifier 2 was a testament to their ability to claw back from seemingly lost situations, as Rashid Khan first blasted 34 from 10 deliveries before bowling a magical spell of 2-11 from his four overs. An added incentive will be the fact that CSK does not have a great record in the finals, having lost four of their six previous finals.

Chennai Super Kings: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (C), Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja, Faf du Plessis, Harbhajan Singh, Dwayne Bravo, Shane Watson, Ambati Rayadu, Deepak Chahar, K M Asif, Kanish Seth, Lungi Ngidi, Dhruv Shorey, Murali Vijay, Sam Billings, Mark Wood, Kshtiz Sharma, Monu Kumar, Chaitanya Bishnoi, Imran Tahir, Karn Sharma, Shardul Thakur, N Jagadeesan, David Willy.

Rayudu runs around and takes a comfortable running catch.Sunrisers finish on 178-6 which will be very challenging for Chennai to chase. Captain Williamson led from the front with 47 while Yusuf Pathan added a quickfire 45 at the end. With runs on the board in a final Sunrisers will be looking to apply some pressure with the spinners in the middle-order and get the run-rate out of reach. Chennai have plenty of experience in the dugout though.
20.5 SIX! Shardul Thakur to Carlos Brathwaite. Short, outside off stump backing away pulling, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. How has Brathwaite hit the ball there? Flat-batted pull over long on. Such a powerful man.
