The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 is finally coming to an end with a blockbuster final – Mumbai Indians (MI) vs Chennai Super Kings (CSK) – at Hyderabad. The debate for the best IPL team will finally come to an end tonight as both Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings have won three titles each.

It is going to be the biggest match of the season and MS Dhoni has a point to prove against Rohit Sharma’s Mumbai. Rohit XI have won all three matches against Chennai this year and the opposition camp will be looking for sweet revenge by winning the biggest encounter of the season.

Team News

Not a lot of changes are expected in the playing XIs tonight as both teams have made only forced changes this season. For Mumbai, the spinner Jayant Yadav is likely to make way for all-rounder Ben Cutting, considering there’s an extra slot for an overseas player. Mumbai has been playing with three overseas stars in the last few matches.

Chennai can opt for an extra batsman in the form of Murali Vijay in place of the expensive Shardul Thakur considering they have plenty of bowlers to bowl out the 20 overs.
