Hyderabad Metro Timings To Get Extended For IPL Final

IPL 2019 Mumbai Indians vs Chennai Super Kings Final: Ahead of the big final between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings, legendary off-spinner Harbhajan Singh has shown his displeasure in public towards the service provided by ITC hotel Kakatiya during team's stay in Hyderabad.

Shane Watson's 80 off 59 balls almost took MS Dhoni's team home, but the Australian allrounder was run out in the last over as Mumbai restricted Chennai to 148-7 and clinched its fourth Indian Premier League title. South Africa and Chennai's Imran Tahir collected the Purple Cap for 26 wickets while Australia and Sunrisers Hyderabad batsman David Warner won the Orange Cap for scoring 692 runs at an average of 69. Enjoying a charmed life, Watson seemed to have put CSK on course, but his run out in the final over, turned the game on its head, and MI cashed in.

Shane Watson hits out in the IPL final.

Suresh Raina (375 runs with a strike rate of 125), Ambati Rayudu, Dhoni (414 runs with a strike rate of 137), Dwayne Bravo and Ravindra Jadeja form the middle order which boasts of plenty of experience in this format.

IPL 2017: Rising Pune Supergiants beat Mumbai Indians thrice before the final, lost in the final. The Dhoni-led CSK unit dished out disciplined bowling and fielding effort to first restrict DC to 147/9 and then chased down the target easily, reaching 151 or four in 19 overs.

She spoke about her camaraderie with "J Sisters" and said, "They're incredible girls and they're girls girls". It's like "Trust them to do that". "That is Jophie." The actor then revealed how they pulled off the wedding .

"We have to go to our drawing board, and there is no real time for that now".

However one of them should have been out just three balls into Chennai's innings.

Chennai Super Kings has struggled with its opening combination, this season. Krunal Pandya and Malinga picked up a wicket each.

Shane Watson appears to save his best for the final. He smashed four sixes and eight fours in his 59-ball knock. On a pitch which was hard and flat, on which batsmen could trust the bounce, Bumrah bowled the hard lengths and clocked good speeds regularly to keep the CSK batsmen in check; more than 90% of his deliveries were back of a length, and his average speed in the match read 141.7kph. Jasprit Bumrah would have two to his name. In a pressure-filled final, the presence of an worldwide player helps the team. Neither (team) has played their best cricket this time.

Bowling department has also performed well for them having restricted CSK for 131 in the first qualifier that they had played earlier this week.
