Sunrisers Hyderabad won the toss and elected to bat first. Their decision set the stage for an exciting contest.

“Looks like a good track, although I am never good at reading wickets. But this looks pretty fine. There was no dew the other night, doesn’t seem there will be today as well.
We are playing a particular style, won’t work every time but when it does, it will be damaging. Good to be back here at Chepauk. It is a different soil, but you are asking the wrong bloke. Shahbaz Shahbaz comes in for Abdul Samad.”

Pat Cummins, SRH Skipper

“We would have bowled first anyway. The track looks different than the Eliminator. We need to stick to our strengths and need to execute our plans. We have been backing each other.
Whenever we have been put under pressure, we have worked out well. A lot of players are playing their first IPL finals so there will be nervousness but hopefully we can win it here at Chepauk like the last finals here.”

Shreyas Iyer, KKR Skipper

Mitchell Starc is the Man of the Match.

“A great for KKR. What a season. Probably the two most exciting teams in the final. I think we had a fantastic squad and we remained such a consistent side with contributions from everyone. That was a big part of our success. About the game tonight We lost the toss and got used to the ball first.
Having watched the game two nights before here, we didn’t know what to expect but the bowling unit showed all the skills they have and the wicket-taking balls. It was a lot of fun for me personally and we have got an exciting attack.”
