IPL 2017 Final: Stage Set for Maharashtrian Derby

Washington Sundar

Revelation, audacity and raw talent. Washington Sundar is living his dream and would like to continue till Sunday night.

In 10 matches, Sundar has taken eight wickets at a miserly average of 6.61. His strength is knowing his limitations and being his own man and not trying to copy other top bowlers.

Sundar's spell against Mumbai in Qualifier I where he had figures of 4-0-16-3 made the world sit back and notice him. His maiden IPL final against a powerful Mumbai side pressure worms are all but certain to creep in.

But, with Dhoni and Smith putting their arms over the young man's shoulders, Sundar might just suddenly wake up from his dream on Sunday midnight with the IPL trophy in his arms.

Jaydev Unadkat

Unadkat did not feature in Pune's opening matches but is now the second highest wicket-taker in the IPL.

Unadkat with 22 scalps needs four wickets to jointly hold the Purple Cap along with Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Although statistics might now allow that, Unadkat has the chance to finish the tournament as the joint highest wicket taker.

Unadkat's slower ones are difficult to pick and his hat-trick maiden against Sunrisers Hyderabad was the main reason why Pune defended a paltry score of 148.

Pune's bowling unit has weathered the storm on several occasions but on the day of final, Unadkat needs to ensure he is no flash in the pan.
