Let's find out who will win IPL 2019 Final Between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings. Lasith Malinga had two runs to defend off the final delivery; after a miserable day in the field, he landed a perfectly-disguised slower delivery to dismiss Shardul Thakur LBW.
A half-century from Shane Watson has helped the Chennai Super Kings beat Delhi Capitals by six wickets and set up an Indian Premier League final against Mumbai Indians.
Watson, who was dropped twice by Rahul Chahar, looked as though he would deliver victory after he smashed four sixes and eight fours in his 59-ball knock but he paid for a reckless run out when he attempted to get back on strike. In a pressure-filled final, the presence of an global player helps the team.
If you asked CSK who they would want to face in the Final, they would probably have picked anyone but Mumbai Indians and they are exactly who CSK will have to outplay in order to lay their hands on their fourth title. It was Deepak Chahar who had done much o f the damage for Chennai Super Kings, as he took three wickets off four overs at the expense of 26 runs.
Before that Bumrah kept Mumbai in the hunt with his tidy overs and two wickets as he got rid of Dwayne Bravo and Ambati Rayudu. Chennai also lost both their league games to Mumbai this season. Malinga had a chance when he had a top edge off Watson coming his way, but he spilled it to give the former Australia batsman a reprieve.

"But I think we need to go back and reflect as to how we reached the finals, and I don't think it was one of those years where we played very good cricket and we got into the finals".
Dhoni - 37 but still a key member of India's World Cup squad - was Chennai's best with 416 runs, including three fifties.
The wicketkeeper-batsman further said there was no hurry to go the drawing boards but expected the batsmen to step up in the next edition.
Colin Munro, who had the opportunity to run one of the batsmen out, chose to throw the ball towards the batting end.
