Chennai skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni is currently the highest run-getter for Chennai in the ongoing 12th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) despite missing a couple of games due to back spasms and illness. The Indian wicketkeeper-batsman has accumulated a total of 414 runs, including three half-centuries, in 11 innings he played at a strike rate of 137. 54. Heading into the summit clash, Dhoni will be keen to continue his good form and guide his side to the historic fourth title.(File Photo) 


Imran Tahir

With 24 wickets to his tally from 16 games, Chennai's Imran Tahir is presently the second highest wicket-taker in the ongoing season. The South African leg spinner, who has been Chennai's go-to bowler in the ongoing 12th season of the Indian T20 league, need just two more wickets during the summit clash to reclaim the Purple Cap from his fellow countryman Kagiso Rabada.

Rohit Sharma

Mumbai skipper Rohit Sharma made a slow start to his campaign, but he subsequently picked up the momentum by scoring a couple of half-centuries towards the end of the group stage. Rohit, who has scored a total of 390 runs from 14 innings he played at an average of 30, will look to give his side a good start by hitting the Chennai bowlers hard and long.

Suryakumar Yadav

Mumbai batsman Suryakumar Yadav struck an unbeaten 54-ball 71, including 10 boundaries, to help Mumbai chase down a lowly target of 132 runs in just 18.3 overs in Qualifier 1 against Chennai and guide them to final. Heading into the final match, Yadav will be keen to pull back another match-winning knock for Mumbai. The 28-year-old Indian can cause a lot of damage if not removed cheaply. (Image Courtesy: PTI)


Suresh Raina

Experienced batsman Suresh Raina, who is playing for Chennai, have had a decent 2019 season with 375 runs from 16 innings including three half-centuries at a strike rate of 125.
