Chennai SuperKings impressed by its amazing performance
During the match, Dhoni keeps on constantly encouraging his team
Chennai Super Kings have made it to the 8th time in the IPL final. It is a record and an extraordinary achievement in itself. I am extremely impressed with CSK for their wonderful performance. There are several reasons for CSK's success. They have identified the players who are fit for their culture.
Hyderabad pitch suitable for batting
Chennai beat Delhi Capitals by 6 wickets in Qualifier 2 Shane Watson and Faf du Plessis made important contributions in batting. Duplessis made the third half-century of the tournament from Chennai.
Chennai made a spectacular start chasing the target of 147 runs in Delhi One of the reasons for Chennai's success is that they play in a professional manner.
Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni's captaincy is particularly good. They constantly encourage the team. They rely on their players. This is also their Winning Formula.
The final will be on Sunday between Chennai and Mumbai in Hyderabad. Both will be face-to-face in the final for the fourth time. Mumbai has won 2 out of 3 finalists so far.
Hyderabad pitch is suitable for batting. Mumbai has defeated CSK three times this season. After a four-day break their players are quite fit. Chennai will have to work hard to win.
