Shane Watson during the IPL final match

Sunrisers Hyderabad: SRH may have put an end to their four-game losing streak by beating KKR, but they are still bogged down by a few issues.

Criticised as Dad's Army, CSK have proved experience is priceless in T20. The older players such as Shane Watson, Ambati Rayudu, Dwayne Bravo, Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni have all had pivotal contributions to CSK's journey towards the final.

IPL 2018 has been quite interesting with surprises at every turn. Kane Williamson and MS Dhoni take on each other as not only captains leading from the front, but also as middle order mainstays.

With du Plessis and Bravo too in the mix, along with Ravindra Jadeja, Harbhajan Singh and Shardul Thakur with the ability to play cameos, the batting looks formidable.

Rashid's variation with the bowling is the one of the main reasons why Sunrisers Hyderabad topped the points table at the close of the league phase of IPL 2018.

But Rashid is making it a habit of throwing pre-match predictions out of the window.


Sunrisers Hyderabad: Kane Williamson (C ), Shikhar Dhawan, Manish Pandey, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Wriddhiman Saha, Siddharth Kaul, Deepak Hooda, Khaleel Ahmed, Sandeep Sharma, Yusuf Pathan, Shreevats Goswami, Ricky Bhui, Basil Thampi, T Natarajan, Sachin Baby, Bipul Sharma, Mehdi Hasan, Tanmay Agarwal, Alex Hales, Carlos Brathwaite, Rashid Khan, Shakib Al Hasan, Mohammad Nabi and Chris Jordan. No we are not giving him away. His overs are hard for any batsman, to say the least, and the Men in Yellow will be wary about the four overs that he would be bowling tonight. The leg-spin-googly bowler has taken 47 wickets in 29 T20 matches for Afghanistan at a strike rate of 14.04.

One thing is for sure, Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai is going to be lit tonight.

The Hotstar promo featuring IPL 2018 Final between Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders went viral on social media as the streaming website/app released the video. While SRH have been nearly untouchable this season, CSK have proved that they have all the goods to be IPL champions. Sunrisers are one from one in finals, having beaten RCB by eight runs in a run-fest in 2016 under the stewardship of David Warner. CSK knows exactly the position they are in, they know how much is at stake and they know how to get there and that would be the advantage that CSK would have over Sunrisers Hyderabad tonight.

The departure of Narine (26 off 13 balls) hardly affected the momentum of the team as Nitish Rana, who was promoted to number 3, added 47-runs with Lynn and the hosts were cruising at 86/1 when disaster struck. It's incredible that even with such a wonderful display, he went without a scalp in four of the 16 matches he has played; two of them in the league matches against KKR. "Best of luck for the final!"

In the first qualifier (CSK vs SRH), Chennai turned victorious.
