We are at the last stretch of the competition, and in a few days, the winners of the 15th season of the Indian Premier League will be announced. After losing to the Chennai Super Kings in the first qualifier at the Chepauk, the reigning champion Gujarat Titans will take on the five-time champion Mumbai Indians. However, the fact that they finished the league at the top of the points standings gives them another chance to go to the final game.

Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, chose a different path and advanced to this stage by easily defeating the SuperGiants from Lucknow in the qualifier. They also appear to be peaking at the ideal time. Jason Behrendroff and Akash Madhwal, an uncapped pacer from Roorkee, led a bowling attack that put up a remarkable performance against LSG. Their performance surpassed Jasprit Bumrah’s 5/10 against the Kolkata Knight Riders last year as the best pacer performance in an IPL playoff game.
