ABOUT THE MATCH
IPL 2019 has been great so far. There have been a ton of great matches, some excellent performances from young upcoming players, and better tactics from most of the teams involved. After all this, though, we are going to have yet another Mumbai Indians vs Chennai Super Kings IPL Final!
The two teams that finished at the top after the group stages have now managed to make their way into the IPL 2019 final and will be playing against each other for the fourth time this season.
The Mumbai Indians have won all three matches against the Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2019 prior to this one. Both the teams are used to being in the IPL final. They have each won the title three times in the past, the most for any side.
Mumbai Indians have reached the IPL final a total of four times before this one. The only time they did not win was against the Chennai Super Kings in 2010. The Chennai Super Kings have reached the IPL final a staggering seven times before this year. They have lost three out of their last four IPL finals including two to Mumbai Indians.
The venue for the IPL 2019 Final is the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad
The team winning the toss would like to bat second. Hyderabad has been a high scoring venue where defending a total has not been easy. There is also a worry that dew could come in the second inning and make bowling difficult.
