    English umpire Nigel Llong could face the BCCI‘s scrutiny for allegedly damaging the door of a stadium room after an argument with Virat Kohli, but the Indian board is unlikely to remove him as an official for the Indian Premier League (IPL 2019) final on May 12.

    Llong reportedly lost his cool after being confronted by Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Kohli over a contentious no ball call against Sunrisers Hyderabad during an IPL match on Saturday.

    According to reports, the ICC Elite Panel official kicked the door of the umpires’ room during the innings break and damaged it.

    A BCCI official informed Llong might have some explaining to do but the matter will not cost him his place as a designated umpire for the IPL final to be held in Hyderabad.

    Today’s IPL match is Qualifier 1 between defencing champions Chennai Super Kings and table-toppers Mumbai Indians at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.

    The last time these two teams met was on April 26 at this very ground, when Rohit Sharma’s MI beat an MS Dhoni-less CSK by 46 runs.

    Prior to that, when CSK went to Mumbai earlier in the league stage, MI won by 37 runs.

    Since 2013, at home, CSK have lost only four matches – and three of them have been to MI. The winner of today’s match goes straight to the IPL final on Sunday, while the losing team gets another shot in Qualifier 2.

    However, Tuesday won’t be the first time that two IPL behemoths will lock horns in playoffs – this will be the fifth such occasion that the Yellow of Chennai and Blue of Mumbai will be squaring off during this stage.

    With the league stage of IPL 2019 coming to a close, we are finally entered the business end of the tournament – the playoffs. The four teams – MI, CSK, DC and SRH – will battle it out to make the final scheduled for May 12.

    CSK are the only team who have made the playoffs every season (barring 2015 and 2016 when they were suspended). Talking of playoffs, there’s a certain Suresh Raina who bosses the stage boasting of a superb record during this particular stage.
    From 14 innings in playoffs, Raina aggregates 449 runs and over the years has played several match-winning knocks to help CSK through to the final.
