Delhi Capitals failed to hold off the inevitability of yet another CSK vs MI final as the Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings romped home by 6 wickets in the second qualifier at the Vizag. Delhi Capitals, batting first after losing the toss, could only manage a modest 147 with the highest contribution from Rishabh Pant. Chasing the target, Chennai Super Kings found a little resistance from their opponents and complete the target with one over to spare.

Besides Dhoni's brilliance with the bat, one thing that has been effective for CSK is their spin bowling unit. The troika of Harbhajan Singh, Imran Tahir, and Ravindra Jadeja has been troubling the opposition batsmen with their skilful bowling. These three have played a huge part in CSK's way to the final, picking up 55 wickets among them. Mumbai Indians possesses a batting unit that is excellent at playing spin. Likes of Rohit Sharma, Surya Kumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, and Keiron Pollard are capable to hit the spinners out of the park. In this case, the bulk of CSK's bowling effort will struggle and MI can put a foot ahead in the intense competition.
