The 2019 IPL will see Mumbai Indians play in the finals for the fifth time in the history of the tournament. They first appeared in the finals of the competition way back in 2010 against Chennai Super Kings, ending up on the losing side.
Mumbai Indians, however, got their revenge in IPL 2013 and IPL 2015 when they defeated CSK in both those finals.
