Chennai Super Kings captain MS Dhoni won the toss and chose to field. Both the teams will enter the final with the same eleven that played in the qualifiers. Weather forecasters have predicted that there is a five percent chance of rain in Ahmedabad on Monday evening. Today is Dhoni’s 250th IPL match. Dhoni is the first player to achieve this feat. This will also be Chennai star Ambati Rayudu’s last IPL match.
