IPL 2019 Finals: ‘He is like my big brother’ Rohit Sharma admitted speaking candidly ahead of the finals. Rohit Sharma went on to reveal how his first impression of Yuvraj Singh was not that great but eventually, they bonded well. Rohit also says that Yuvraj has an attitude. Rohit said all these ahead of the finals against Chennai Super Kings in a day’s time. Rohit speaks about how Yuvraj walks up to him in the team bus and says ‘Tujhe pata hai ye kiski seat hai?’, which means do you know whose seat is this. For Rohit, he feels it was a tad-bit intimidating. Yuvraj, on the other hand, feels that he warmly shook hands with Rohit.

Meanwhile, arch-rivals, familiar foes and two most successful teams of the Indian Premier League (IPL) — Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings collide in a mouth-watering final showdown on Sunday to decide the winner of the coveted trophy. The 12th edition of IPL produced several unprecedented moments both on and off the field. If we go by the stats, Mumbai will start as the favourites in the big final versus Chennai after beating the Yellow brigade three times earlier in the tournament including in the Qualifier 1 on Tuesday.
But numbers and statistics count for little going into the title fight as both teams start on an even keel at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai can certainly take confidence out of the fact that they have won three out of the four finals they have been part of, including the two against CSK in 2013 and 2015.
