For the first time this IPL season, the finalists of the last season will face off in what promises to be a thrilling clash. Chennai Super Kings beat Sunrisers Hyderabad in the final in IPL 2018 to lift the title for the third time in their history. The two teams have had contrasting fortunes. While CSK have lost just one match so far to be seated at the top spot in points tally, SRH are at no. 6 having lost their past three matches after having started the season on a strong note.

Sunrisers, who secured three back-to-back victories after their loss in the opening encounter, have failed miserably in the last three games – having succumbed to three heavy defeats – against Delhi Capitals (by 39 runs), Kings XI Punjab (by six wickets) and Mumbai Indians (by 40 runs). It is their batting that has let them down. Besides the explosive duo of David Warner and Jonny Bairstow, none of the others have stepped up to the task to finish off games.
