The resurgent Sunrises Hyderabad will take on the in-form Chennai Super Kings in the final of the Indian Premier League in Mumbai on Sunday.
Both team’s finished the first round as number one and two on the points table, and have already clashed three times where Chennai came on top in all contests.
In the last match, Hyderabad out-classed Kolkata Knight Riders by 14 runs in the qualifier two, courtesy sublime performance from young Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan, who claimed figures of three for 19 and also contributed significantly with the bat.
In the batting department, the team management will be hoping to see the return of form of Captain Kane Williamson, who had a rare failure in an all-important encounter against Kolkata, but even then he has scored 688 runs at an average of 52.92.
