MI also hold a 2-1 record against CSK in the finals and at the same time, they will be led by Rohit Sharma who has captained them to three title wins.
Co-incidentally, even Kieron Pollard celebrated his 32nd birthday on Sunday and before Mumbai took to the field, Polly's team-mates came forward to wish him a 'Happy Birthday'.
MI's all-rounder Krunal Pandya came forward to wish his big brother.
"Many many happy returns of the day Polly, my big brother. Have a great year ahead brother. Wishing you tons of runs and plenty of wickets. Oh! Wickets I am just joking about it. "
Team India's premier fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah also wished the big man and at the same time, also highlighted their long journey with Mumbai Indians.
Happy Birthday, Polly. It has been a long journey. We have been together in a team for I don't know how many years. You have contributed towards the team's success quite a lot. I have learned a lot from your attitude that one should never give up. That's great quality. Enjoy your day and have a great year."
Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma wished Pollard a great year and also reminded him about all their memories from the years gone by.
"Hey Polly, wish you a great birthday. It has been a while since we have been playing together. We have created a lot of memories here at MI and I hope we create more in the future. Have a great day"
South African wicket-keeper batsman Quinton de Kock wished him luck for the coming years.
"Hi big man. Quinny here, I'd like to wish you a Happy Birthday. I hope you have a great day and all the best for the years coming."
