Captains View 

Shreyas Iyer | DC Skipper

We’ll bat. It really worked out pretty well in the last game. When you have a really good total on the board the bowling gets a lot of confidence. We’ve seen it through the tournament and in a big final runs on the board helps The wicket also looks amazing to bat on.

They have been champions through the years and even the way they’ve been playing this season. We have nothing to lose, we have to embrace it and have no regrets at the end of it. The team atmosphere is really motivated, we are in a good mood and have to enjoy the day. We are sticking with the same team.

Rohit Sharma | MI SKipper

To be really honest I was very confused, so don’t mind losing the toss. It is going to be a good track, it doesn’t change much. We have to bowl aggressively at the start and then see how it goes. It feels nice to be part of another final.

It is going to be a cracker of a game. The past doesn’t matter, it is a fresh day, a fresh game and the pressure of this final will be different. But the guys have been in these pressure situations before, they understand the pressure of finals and yes, we have just got to treat this as another game.

Hopefully, we can execute what we’ve discussed on the field. Everyone’s fit, but just one chance — Rahul Chahar misses out and Jayant Yadav comes in. Just a tactical move considering the number of left-handers they have in the side.

Rahul has been bowling really well for us so sad to leave him out, but Jayant is a quality bowler as well.

Man of the match 

Trent Boult | MI 

Some days I do like the powerplay. It’s been a good few months, giving the franchise a good start. With everything going on, I’ve been welcomed in the side. To have made it across the line, it’s been worth it.

I wasn’t aware of the talk, but I did have a niggle coming into the match. I wanted to be on the stage and happy I came through. I’d like to say I’m relatively experienced. Just another match and I was clear what I had to do. Tried to take a few early wickets, swing the new ball a little bit, that’s been my role in the side.
