The D-Day is here and it is the grand finale of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019. It is Mumbai Indians (MI) vs Chennai Super Kings (CSK), this clash of the Titans. Both the teams have 3 IPL titles each to their names.
I would stick my neck out here and say that Mumbai Indians have an edge in this mouth-watering clash. And there is a reason why I say that they look like the most balanced side in this tournament. Just look at their team, Rohit, De Kock, Suryakumar, Hardik, Krunal, Pollard, what an amazing batting line-up. Then the bowling department, Jasprit Bumrah, Lasith Malinga, Mitchell McClenaghan, and Rahul Chahar, I mean it can't get better than this.
On the other hand, Chennai's top-order is wobbly. They would need to be at their ultimate best if they want to beat a team like Mumbai.
So, all in all, I would say that Mumbai has a better chance.
