Wankhede stadium is hosting the IPL Final for first the time. Emotions are running high inside the Wankhede Stadium and are very curious to know who is going to win the IPL title. The Final clash began at Wankhede stadium in Mumbai between Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad.

The Wankhede stadium has its own fair share of unforgettable memories attached to it. It has been home to some of the greatest cricketers who have played for the country. Around 33 thousand is the seating capacity of the stadium.

The stadium has seven different stands - Sunil Gavaskar Stand, North Stand, Vijay Merchant Stand, Sachin Tendulkar Stand, MCA Pavilion, Divecha Pavilion, and Garware Pavilion.

The seaside location of the Wankhede stadium means that the swing bowlers get a fair amount of assistance during the early part of game. The pitch has traditionally been full of runs, but it does help the spinners in  death overs.

Chennai Super King and Sunrisers Hyderabad are the two teams standing in the competition and nerves will play a big role for two title-hungry outfits when they will compete to crown the VIVO IPL 2018 champions Crown at Wankhede stadium in Mumbai.

The Captain Cool Dhoni and Afghanistan rider Rashid Khan have been instrumental in their teams reaching the final. While Dhoni has turned back the clock in sublime style with the bat.

Siddarth Kaul, Rashid Khan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar formed the bermuda triangle, where the runs mostly went missing. 

Of course, it will be a terrific match-up between two sides, who have reached here on merit. Hopefully, they give the fans watching around the globe a night to remember.
