Again it is proved that game of cricket is unpredictable, the two bottom-placed teams from IPL 2008, Bangalore and Hyderabad are the finalists this year.

Having turned around things for themselves under the inspiring leadership of Anil Kumble, Bangalore look capable of shattering Chennai's IPL dreams. Ross Taylor has played a significant role in re-shaping the Bangalore campaign.

Chennai dominated in the first-half of the league stage before suffering some close defeats towards the latter part of the tournament. Hayden has treated the bowlers with utter disdain in the tournament. The bowling department is secure in the hands of Muralitharan and his friends.
