Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings will take each other on in the first qualifier of IPL 2019.

After a fiercely competitive group stage fixtures, the 12th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is reaching its business end. Sunrisers Hyderabad qualified for the playoffs last night after Kolkata Knight Riders suffered a heavy defeat to Mumbai Indians in the final league game of the season.

As we enter the final stages of the IPL, here’s your guide to everything you need to know for the upcoming playoffs and the final.

Qualifier 1:

The qualifier will be played between the top-2 teams of the league phase i.e., Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings. While Rohit Sharma’s men picked up pace after a shaky start to the season, Chennai were given a reality-check in yesterday’s game against Kings XI Punjab.

Super Kings’ bowling attack took a hefty pounding as Kings XI chased down 171 with two overs to spare. The side’s record against Mumbai Indians doesn’t inspire confidence either, as CSK are yet to beat MI this season.
