A battle of skippers

A battle of skippers

The first and foremost battle, probably the mother of all battles, is the war of the skippers.

Two of the most successful skippers in the IPL are at it once again, while one would come out on top.

Both Rohit Sharma and MS Dhoni have won three titles as captains, and the winner tonight will hold the record for the most.

Quinton vs Tahir

A South African safari awaits

In a clash of overseas players, two South Africans are all set for a big battle.

Mumbai opener Quinton de Kock, who has been their prolific run-scorer this season, would vie for one last domination prior to the World Cup.

However, his South African team-mate, Imran Tahir of Chennai would look to end his run early.

Can Quinton de Kock spoil Tahir's plans?

Raina looks to spoil Bumrah's party

Mumbai pacer Jasprit Bumrah has been their highest wicket-taker this term, while he would aim to finish on top, before the World Cup preparations get underway.

However, Chennai's Suresh Raina could very well spoil his rhythm at the worst possible time.

While Raina is not a part of the World Cup, his determination to prove himself in IPL could become Bumrah's nightmare.
