Champions League T20 Final: Rajasthan Royals to face Mumbai Indians for summit clash, Farewell for Rahul Dravid and Sachin Tendulkar 

The Champions League will be ending in the same fashion it began its league stage-  Rajasthan Royals and Mumbai Indians facing each other. Rajasthan Royals have been dominant while Mumbai Indians scrapped through into the semifinals, it will be an interesting battle tonight at Delhi. Here is the detailed preview of the finals:

Head to Head: 14 Matches [MI-7, RR-6, NR-1]

Previous Meeting: Rajasthan Royals defeated Mumbai Indians in the first league match of the season by 7 Wickets.

The coin spin: Only 3 Out of the 28 teams have opted to bat first after winning the toss in Champions league 2013. It will be expected that the team winning the toss will opt to bowl first.

Team watch:
Rajasthan Royals is a team that has left no stone unturned so far in this tournament. Every department in their team looks furnished with the perfect spirit. Ajinkya Rahane completed his third consecutive fifty in the last match and is the current holder of the Golden Bat. Every batsman in the team has contributed with their bat so far in the tournament and there is enough depth. Pravin Tambe was at his best in the semifinals where the Chennai batsmen struggled to even rotate strike in his over, the old fox should be used in the vital moments to pick the all important wickets. This team has completely progress through the team effort and they must replicate the performance for one final time at Kotla to give the great man, a fitting farewell.

On the other hand, Mumbai Indians is a settled side. The 35 runs in yesterday’s semifinals will be a big boost for the little master who is set to bid a goodbye to the coloured jersey tonight. The other top order batsmen Dwayne Smith and Rohit Sharma are in sublime form with the confidence of taking any bowler for boundaries. The power of Kieron Pollard is not yet unleashed and the bowling order has performed above average in the absence of Lasith Malinga. Nathan Counter Nile has bowled decent length and line throughout the tournament and has been the surprise package.
