CSK will meet arch-rivals Mumbai Indians in the high-octane clash in Hyderabad on May 12.
After serving a two-year suspension, in 2015 and 2016, CSK returned to the IPL-fold in 2018 and immediately struck form. The M.S. Dhoni-led side beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by eight wickets at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai to clinch its third IPL trophy.
