Watch Chennai Super Kings v Mumbai Indians cricket highlights videos today – Indian premier league 2019 final from Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Uppal, Hyderabad (India) Sunday, 12th May 2019.
Pitch report: “Looks beautiful for batting,” says VVS Laxman. “Rock solid surface. Batsmen can trust the deck. The boundary is big so batsmen need to convert the singles into twos well.”
Rohit: “Big game, that’s what we prefer to do. There might be some help for bowlers initially but we are prepared for it. Want to bat first, and put runs on the board. We were on the road for a while, so we took the five-day break positively. Some guys trained, but few days off helped. One change: Mitchell McClenaghan in for Jayant Yadav. The Decision was taken because of the conditions.”
MSD: “We were looking to bowl first. We are not a side that puts a lot of effort on fielding so we don’t mind the short turnaround. No changes.
MI won the toss and decided to bat first.
