We definitely have a team which can win it for MS this time.

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have made it to the summit clash, and we will know the other finalist after the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR)-Sunrisers Hyderabad's (SRH) encounter on Friday.

Rashid (34 not out off 10) first played a late cameo with the bat to help Sunrisers overcome a wobbly start and post a challenging 174 for seven and then returned with a 3/19 spell from his four overs to guide his side to their second IPL final appearance. However, despite all that, Faf Du Plessis played a phenomenal innings and sent CSK on the victorious side. Naturally both MS Dhoni and the millions who was watching it, never saw it coming. Kolkata has a deep batting line-up, the prime example being their last game against Rajasthan Royals. But by then Narine and Lynn (48 off 31) had already done the initial damage as they went hammer and tongs against the Sunrisers bowlers from the word go. "So this time, we want to win the IPL for Dhoni", said Raina as quoted by the CSK website.

It should be noted that KKR and SRH have faced each other 14 times so far, with Kolkata winning on nine occasions.

Rachel Dolezal Faces Felony Charges of Welfare Fraud in Washington State
An investigation started in March 2017 when a Washington state investigator received information that Diallo had written a book. Court documents say the former activist deposited almost $84,000 into her bank account without reporting the majority of it.

KKR does have that quality among their ranks, with hard-hitters like Chris Lynn, Sunil Narine and Andre Russell, it is quite plausible that SRH's bowling will be tested.

Returning after five matches, Saha looked awfully out of sorts with six runs from 12 balls and carried on with a dash of luck after being dropped on five when Karthik grassed a skier.

Although KKR is familiar playing at the Eden Gardens, the pitch favours the spinners of Sunrisers Hyderabad and all it takes is that few overs to change the complexion of the match.

Now, CSK has reached the finals and SRH have one more chance to make it to the finals if they win against the victor of the eliminator. Arguably the best bowling attack in the tournament with Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Siddarth Kaul and Sandeep Sharma delivering consistently along with the immensely talented Rashid Khan, Sunrisers will like to extract whatever juice is available from the Eden Gardens track.
