From warming the bench to replacing veteran spinner Harbhajan Singh, Karn Sharma has delivered the goods just at the right time. His worth weight in gold, Karn’s spell in Qualifier 2 (4-0-16-4) spun out Kolkata Knight Riders and propelled Mumbai into the final.

In spite of playing only eight matches, Karn has taken 13 wickets and is the third highest wicket-taker for Mumbai. If he can contain Pune's top order and chip away like he did against Kolkata, Mumbai will certainly lift the cup for the third time.

Jasprit Bumrah

He may be relatively new to international cricket but Bumrah is already an IPL veteran in terms of performing in crunch situations. He normally bowls at the death and his executing of yorkers is always immaculate.

Bumrah's biggest asset is his ability in denying the opposition the liberty of scoring freely at the death. His bowling in the Super Over against Gujarat Lions with Brendon McCullum and Aaron Finch at crease was nothing short of brilliant.

His match winning spell of 3-1-7-3 in Qualifier 2 was crucial in piloting his team into the Final.

Boom has picked up 18 wickets in 15 matches and is the fourth highest wicket taker in the tournament. He will have to bring his ‘A’ game to keep Mahendra Singh Dhoni in check in the slog overs.
