Mumbai Indians march into IPL final, beat Knight Riders

Connie Andrews | 22 May, 2017, 03:51

Given that MS Dhoni was removed as skipper, the remarks seemed as unexpected as the slower ball surprises RPS' Dan Christian and Jaydev Unadkat have produced to such telling effect in IPL 10.

However, their two-year run along with the Gujarat Lions ends this season and may be playing their last game in IPL after being denied an extension by the Governing Council early this month. If they win the final, they would be crowned as the champions for the first time in the history of the tournament in potentially their last ever game in the league.

Mumbai Indians and Rising Pune Supergiant will cross swords in the marquee match in Hyderabad on Sunday.

Pune, on the other hand, have been deceptively good. However, a visibly successful working relationship between former skipper Dhoni and his successor Steve Smith, Rising Pune Supergiant have booked themselves a place in IPL 10 final. Tomorrow we've got to make sure we're better and we play good cricket and focus on what we need to do. Additionally, there were the contributions of young Indian players such as Nitish Rana and Karn Sharma that got them through.

"If all those things have been looked after, the result will take care of itself". The next three players on the list are also in the final: Hardik Pandya (176), Dhoni (162) and Pollard (158). They were outperformed in the first match but back brilliantly in the second one.

The likes of Dhoni and Ajinkya Rahane are tried and tested customers, and come the big match, they know how to step up their performance.

It's easy to say that these are the two best teams who have made it to the final of the competition this year.

But while all of the ingredients are there for a Mumbai win, it's impossible to ignore the teams' head-to-head records.

Manoj Tiwary smashed the first ball for four but was caught off the second, with Smith then caught on the boundary from the next ball. Pollard hasn't bowled yet in this tournament.

After unceremoniously removing Dhoni from captaincy, the veteran Ranchi stumper, who will most likely be seen in his Chennai Super Kings jersey in the next edition, will have another chance to silence his critics in the franchise.

Washington Sundar has impressed everyone with his consistency this season.

The Mumbai Indians have a team that can match Rising Pune's prowess.

He wasn't the only one who impressed, with Jasprit Bumrah, Mitchell Johnson and Lasith Malinga all living up to their hefty expectations.

With a resounding victory by 6 wickets in a thrilling match against Kolkata Knight Riders, Mumbai Indians entered in their 3rd IPL final.
