Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings played in the first Qualifier in which Mumbai stood victorious and entered the finals. Delhi Capitals and Sunrisers Hyderabad played the Eliminator match in which Delhi defeated the Sunrisers team to enter the Qualifier 2. CSK and DC played the Qualifier 2 and Chennai Super Kings defeated the Delhi Capitals team to enter the finals against Mumbai Indians.
One can observe that CSK has been the most consistent team in IPL 12 with continuous victories. The team comprises veteran players like MS Dhoni (Captain), Suresh Raina, Dwayne Bravo, Imran Tahir, Faf Du Plessis, Harbhajan Singh, Ambati Rayudu, Ravindra Jadeja, etc. The team under MS Dhoni’s captaincy has always performed to the best of its abilities which was evident in CSK entering the finals. But CSK had lost all three matches against MI in IPL 12. While this may act as a fantastic motivator, it might also inhibit the team’s confidence to a certain extent.
Mumbai Indians on the other hand, have stumbled in some matches since the beginning but have finished the leagues on top. The team comprises of Rohit Sharma (Captain), Kieron Pollard, Suryakumar Yadav, Quinton De Kock, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Lasith Malinga, etc. It is one of the strongest teams of IPL 12 and players like Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, and Lasith Malinga have performed amazingly in the series. While the team has already defeated CSK every time in IPL 12 which can be a great motivator and boost of confidence, beating CSK in the finals is going to be a tough job.
