The Super Kings, having run into top form, outclassed their opponents in a display that will straightaway make them favourites to win the final on Sunday.
The Daredevils lost the plot at the start itself. Leaving out Morkel in preference to all-rounder Andre Russell raised eyebrows. Worse still, including local off-spinner Sunny Gupta for his first IPL game and giving him the new ball proved a disaster as he went for 47 runs in his four overs, including 24 in his first two that sent the Super Kings on their way.
