Mumbai Indians have had the advantage of a mini-break before the final by the virtue of winning the first qualifier. But as Friday night’s game at Visakhapatnam unfolded, it brought them a match-up vs conditions dilemma. On a spinning Chepauk pitch, MI opted to bench Mitchell McClenaghan despite his previous game returns, just to bring in an offspinner in Jayant Yadav to trouble Suresh Raina early.
The CSK No.3 came with the reputation of getting better with the bat as the tournament progressed and has been particularly proficient in the knockouts. In the first qualifier though, MI’s move worked like a charm – Jayant claimed Raina’s wicket in his first over.
Going with the same team should be ideal then, but what of the conditions? Fast bowlers have thrived on the Hyderabad pitch this year, and SRH’s left-arm pacer Khaleel Ahemd’s numbers at home (10 wickets in 4 games) might tempt Rohit Sharma to bring back McClenaghan.

Chennai Super Kings(CSK):
Going a batsman short against a Kagiso Rabada-less, bits-and-pieces Delhi Capitals bowling attack was a calculated move. But can such a decision come easy when it has to be carried off against the Jasprit Bumrah-fuelled bowling machinery of Mumbai Indians? Unlikely.
Shardul Thakur replaced Murali Vijay for the second qualifier, only to bowl just a single over. There’s a good chance then, CSK will revert to including an extra batsman in the line-up.
Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Harbhajan Singh, Imran Tahir, Shardul Thakur/Murali Vijay, Deepak Chahar
What to expect:
The Hyderabad strip has been kind on the fast bowlers – to such an extent that Alzarri Joseph wiped out Sohail Tanvir’s 11-year-long best-bowling figures with a six-fer. The overall tally too is heavily skewed in favour of the quicks – 52 to 27 for the spinners. Weather-wise, temperatures in the early 30s during match time is expected to greet the two sides. There was rain on the eve of the game and there could be a slight chance of rain during the game as well.
