The two-time former champions have also won their previous two meetings against the Orange Army including the recent Qualifier 1 win this week. While this the first meeting between both the teams in a final, they have met four times in playoffs where it is 2 wins each for both of them.

Pitch Report

The MA Chidambaram Stadium will host its third final in the history of IPL as well as its ninth match of this season. The Chennai-based venue is considered a difficult surface to bat on and provides help to spinners and slow bowlers. The ground has typically favoured teams batting second this season but the second qualifier played between RR and SRH saw the latter winning the match where they batted first.

Overall, the venue has hosted 84 matches where 49 matches have been won by teams batting first and 35 matches have gone down in favour of teams batting second.

Fantasy XI

Openers: Travis Head (c), Abhishek Sharma

Batters: Shreyas Iyer, Venkatesh Iyer, Heinrich Klassen, Nitish Kumar Reddy

All-rounder: Sunil Narine (vc), Shahbaz Ahmed

Bowlers: Mitchell Starc, Varun Chakravarthy, T. Natarajan
