It is the Final! Two months of mouth watering cricket and it has all come down to this. Two teams from Maharashtra, fight it out one last time to get their hands on the prestigious trophy. It is Rising PuneSuperGiant vs Mumbai Indians. It is Dhoni vs Rohit. It is Smith vs Simmons. It is Pollard vs Christian.
This is MS Dhoni’s 6th final in the IPL out of which he has won it twice. He’ll be eyeing for a third final victory today. Pune have been clinical against Mumbai this season winning all three encounters including the first Qualifier. They’ll be looking to register their fourth win against MI today and remain unbeatable against Mumbai. RPS will be looking to go out with a bang as this most likely be their last season in IPL.
Mumbai Indians have certainly been the best team of the tournament thus far. They faced just a little glitch in the first qualifier where they lost to Pune, but are back on track, in the finals and looking to win the trophy. MI have won this tournament twice and eyeing a third title, which would make them the most successful team in the 10 years of the tournament. Mumbai Indians would be looking to change their record against the RPS and record their first win against them in the season.
The game is expected to be high scoring and it will be likely that the MI would bowl first.
