Mumbai: With playoffs done and dusted all attention now turns towards high octane 2018 Indian Premier League (IPL) final between Chennai Super Kings vs Sunrisers Hyderabad to be held at Wankhede Stadium on Sunday. Opener Sunil Narine looked in great touch as he plundered 26 off 13 before getting dismissed in 3.2 overs. But by then Narine and Lynn (48 off 31) had already done the initial damage as they went hammer and tongs against the Sunrisers bowlers from the word go. Nitish Rana and Lynn got together and added 47 runs for the second wicket but Rana was sent packing courtesy a brilliant one-handed pick-up and a flat throw from Rashid Khan that found him short of his crease.

The three wickets taken by Rashid Khan were of three risky batsmen, Chris Lynn, Andre Russell and Robin Uthappa.

Sunrisers have really struggled in their last four matches as they have ended on the losing side. However, it may come down to KKR's spin trio versus SRH's pace battery. They will give in their all to stop a rampant KKR. He produced an innings to rattle the young Knight Riders bowlers much like their captain Dinesh Karthik had recently done to the Bangladesh bowlers in the Nidahas Trophy final. After winning the toss, KKR asked the guests to bowl first.

Boston Celtics looking to send LeBron James packing again
The Celtics know how much more comfortable they would be closing out at home, but James in a game seven is a different monster. How the Cavaliers do will likely once again rest on LeBron James' shoulders who has so far carried his team to this point.

What we learned vs. Boston Celtics Game 5
Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue was among those who thought James was tired in Game 5, but believes James will be ready Friday night. Whether they make it or not, make it as hard as possible on them. "I didn't mention the fatigue, either".

After that wickets fell at regular wickets, but thanks to Rashid Khan's late blitz of 34 from 10 balls SRH could manage a total of 174/7. Having started off on an impressive note, Krishna finished with poor figures of 56 runs from his four overs to undo all the good work done by Kuldeep and Narine.

In the chase, KKR got off to a flier as they scored 67 runs in the powerplay overs for the loss of just one wicket.

Returning after five matches, Saha looked awfully out of sorts with six runs from 12 balls and carried on with a dash of luck after being dropped on five when Karthik grassed a skier.
