Mumbai Indians will be locking horns with the defending champions Chennai Super Kings in the final of this season's IPL at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium on Sunday. Mumbai hold a 2-1 advantage over CSK in the summit clashes. They had lost to MS Dhoni's side in 2010 when they had played their maiden final but returned the favour back in 2013 and 2015 respectively. At the same time, both sides are also two of the most successful teams in the tournament's history.
MI also hold a 16-11 win record against CSK in the 27 games that the two teams have played. In fact, MS Dhoni's side have failed to break the MI code in this season where they have gone on to lose all the three encounters. Despite having dominance over the defending champions a fan decided to chalk out a plan of stopping CSK in the summit clash. This plan was drafted by the fan and it remains to be seen whether Mumbai skipper Rohit Sharma will be implementing any of these.
In the note, it read that Mumbai has to go with six bowling options, South Africa’s Beuran Hendricks should be the fourth foreign player who should be in the Playing XI , Hardik Pandya should bowl between 8-16 overs and should Mumbai bat first, then they should play attacking cricket which will force CSK to go for a sixth bowling option.
However, this eight-point strategy was brought to CSK head coach Stephen Fleming's notice by the official Twitter handle of Chennai Super Kings.
The Chennai Super Kings fans came forward to give their opinions about this strategy.
