It's a Maharashtrian derby, two sides who have played exuberant cricket right throughout the season are now warming up for the final bout.
When the season commenced, there were eight teams jockeying to book the final berth. After grueling 59 matches Mumbai Indians and Rising Pune SuperGiant will lock horns for the one final time.
Having won the IPL on two previous occasions, the dice is heavily loaded in Mumbai's favour. But one can expect an anticlimax as underdogs Pune have beaten Mumbai on all the three previous occasions this season.
Before the curtains raise, take a look at the key impact players from both sides who hold the key to their team’s fortunes.
