As Rising Pune Supergiant takes on Mumbai Indians to decide the winner of IPL 10, we take a look at what has happened when these two teams have clashed in the past.
1.Mumbai Indians v Rising Pune Supergiant (IPL 2016 Game 1)
This was the first match of IPL 2016, and also the debut of the Rising Pune Supergiant. Mumbai Indians batted first and made a paltry 121, At one stage they were struggling at 68-7, but a late cameo from Harbhajan Singh propelled Mumbai to 121. But Pune never faced any troubles chasing the target, and won with eight wickets and 32 balls to spare. Ajinkya Rahane scored a fluent 66, with Du Plessis and Pietersen chipping in with 34 and 21 respectively.
2.Rising Pune Supergiant v Mumbai Indians (IPL 2016 Game 2)
Mumbai Indians' only victory against the Maharashtrian rival came in last year's second clash in Pune. Batting first Pune scored 159, with Saurabh Tiwary scoring 57 and Steven Smith scoring 45. Jasprit Bumrah took three wickets, conceding just 29 runs. Mumbai comfortably chased the target, thanks to captain's knock from Rohit Sharma, scoring 85 and Jos Butler scoring a quickfire 27 off just 17 balls.
3.Rising Pune Supergiant v Mumbai Indians (IPL 2017 Game 1)
Batting first, Mumbai scored a massive 184, with contributions coming from Jos Buttler, Nitish Rana, Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard. However, Pune surprised everyone and chased the target, thanks to Steven Smith's masterly 84 and Ajinkya Rahane's classy 60. This was also the game which saw Pune owner Sanjiv Goenka's brother tweeting rather controversially about the team's decision to hand over the reigns to Smith from Dhoni.
4.Mumbai Indians v Rising Pune Supergiant (IPL 2017 Game 2)
This was the closest match between the two rivals, Pune scored 160, thanks mainly to Rahul Tripathi's 45. Everyone expected Mumbai to coast home, but Ben Stokes' masterly performance with the ball meant Pune managed to snatch a 3-run victory. Needing just 24 runs to win in the last two overs, Pune managed to stop Mumbai, with Imran Tahir and Ben Stokes conceding just 21 runs. Stokes took two wickets in the final over, to end with figures of 4-1-21-2.
5. Mumbai Indians v Rising Pune Supergiant (Qualifier 1)
Mumbai came into the game as heavy favourites, but it was again Pune who came out on top in what turned out to be a one sided contest in the end. Pune scored 162 in their 20 overs, with Ajinkya Rahane and Manoj Tiwari scoring 56 and 58 respectively. MS Dhoni provided the perfect finish, smashing 40 off just 26 balls to take Pune past 160. Parthiv Patel was the only batsman who showed some fight, as Mumbai simply collapsed with 17-year-old Washington Sundar picking up three wickets, conceding just 16 runs in his four overs

With the 2017 IPL Season 10 final to be played on Sunday  May 21,2017at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad between MI and RPS, we take a look at the previous nine finals and how they panned out.

IPL 2016, Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Royal Challengers Bangalore
The 2016 final was a battle of the batsmen at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru, the only time both teams managed to breach the 200-run barrier. After winning the toss, SRH opted to bat and were given a dream start by skipper David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan. The Australian opener was on fire and smashed 69 off 38 balls. Yuvraj Singh and Ben Cutting's cameos helped Hyderabad post 208/7 -- the highest score in the history of IPL finals.
RCB skipper Virat Kohli and West Indian Chris Gayle gave their team the perfect start and in no time reached the 100-run mark without any loss. With the duo going all guns blazing, RCB were primed for their first title win but alas it wasn't to be. A mini collapse and hara-kiri ensued as RCB players threw away the match when it seemed harder to lose than it was to win.
When Kohli was dismissed, RCB were 140/2 in 12.5 overs, needing 69 off 48 balls. AB de Villiers, KL Rahul and Shane Watson fell without much fight while Stuart Binny and Chris Jordan were run out as RCB fell short by nine runs.
IPL 2015, Mumbai Indians vs Chennai Super Kings
 The stage was set in Eden Gardens, Kolkata, the venue for the battle between Mumbai and Chennai -- the third time the two teams were locking horns in an IPL final. Chennai put Mumbai in to bat and the former must have thought they struck gold when Parthiv Patel was sent packing off just the fifth ball of the match.
However, that was the end of CSK players' happiness that night as Lendl Simmons, Rohit Sharma, Kieron Pollard and Ambati Rayudu took them to task as MI posted 202/5.
Dwayne Smith (57) got Chennai off to a brisk start but found little support from others. Suresh Raina and Mahendra Singh Dhoni threatened for a brief period but it just wasn't enough. Once the West Indian was dismissed, MI romped to a 41-run win.
IPL 2014, Kolkata Knight Riders vs Kings XI Punjab
 Bengaluru played host to Punjab's first IPL final and it wasn't first time lucky for the kings from Punjab. KKR won the toss and elected to field. Punjab lost Virender Sehwag and George Bailey early but a 129-run partnership between Manan Vohra and Wriddhiman Saha put them in a commanding position.
Saha blasted 115 runs from just 55 balls and took his team to 199/4 in 20 overs.
Kolkata lost captain Gautam Gambhir and Robin Uthappa cheaply but were rescued by a brilliant 71-run stand between Manish Pandey and Yusuf Pathan. Punjab kept chipping away at the wickets to keep themselves in the hunt but Pandey's 94 and Piyush Chawla's late heroics got KKR across the line with three balls to spare and also their second IPL title.
IPL 2013, Mumbai Indians vs Chennai Super Kings
 This was the first time Eden Gardens was playing host to an IPL final while Mumbai and Chennai were facing each other for the second time for the ultimate prize. Mumbai won the toss and chose to bat. They were in trouble from the outset and at 16 for three and then 52 for four, few people gave them any hope of taking the title home but a match-winning 60 off just 32 balls from Kieron Pollard turned the game on its head. MI posted 148/9 in 20 overs and CSK had a fight on their hands.
What happened in the second innings, few would have envisaged. A batting collapse of monumental proportions saw CSK being reduced to 58 for eight.
With all the carnage at the other end, one man stood his ground -- MS Dhoni. The CSK skipper scored an unbeaten 63 but with no support, Chennai fell to a 23-run loss, giving Mumbai their first IPL title.
IPL 2012, Kolkata Knight Riders vs Chennai Super Kings
Playing in front of their home fans at the Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai and gunning for their third straight IPL title, CSK were the favourites going into the match. But someone failed to mention that to a certain Manvinder Bisla.
Chennai, opting to bat first, smashed their way to 190/3 with Mike Hussey, Mural Vijay, Suresh Raina and Dhoni all joining the party.
However, Bisla played the role of the party pooper in Chennai as he smashed 89 off just 48 balls to put KKR on the winning track in the chase. Jacques Kallis too played a solid innings to take his team to within touching distance.
KKR still needed 16 off the final 7 balls with all the big guns back in the hut. Shakib Al-Hasan and Manoj Tiwary took centre-stage and their cameos helped KKR overhaul the target with two balls to spare.
IPL 2011, Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bangalore
The men from Bengaluru stood in the way of Chennai's second straight title. However, they didn't stand in the way for too long as CSK bulldozed their way to their second title in one of the most one-sided IPL finals.
Chennai, opting to bat, got off to a brilliant start courtesy Mike Hussey and Vijay. The duo shared a sizzling 159-run partnership for the first wicket and Chennai never looked back from that point on. Vijay's 95 helped them score 205/5 in 20 overs.
Gayle was sent packing in the fourth ball from the innings and that was it for RCB. Kohli and De Villiers showed glimpses but it just wasn't enough as Chennai steamrolled their way to an emphatic 58-run win.
IPL 2010, Chennai Super Kings vs Mumbai Indians
DY Patil Stadium kin Navi Mumbai was buzzing on the night of April 25 as MI made it to their first IPL final, where they faced CSK, who had already been thwarted once in the IPL final and were determined to not let history repeat itself.
Chennai, choosing to bat, got off to a mixed start. Vijay scored 26 off 19 balls while Mathew Hayden laboured to a 31-ball 17. Suresh Raina once again proved to be CSK's hero as his 35-ball 57 helped CSK post a fighting total of 168/5.
Sachin Tendulkar (48) gave Mumbai a steady yet slow start but when none of the other batsmen got going Mumbai's problems were compounded. Pollard and Rayudu tried the level best but Mumbai were always too far behind the asking rate to really make a good fist of things.
In the end, they could manage only 146/7, falling short by 22 runs to give CSK their first title.
IPL 2009, Deccan Chargers vs Royal Challengers Bangalore
The only final to be played in foreign soil, the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg was the host of this humdinger of a match between the Chargers and the Challengers. Deccan were put into bat and lost skipper Adam Gilchrist in only the third ball of the match. However, Herschelle Gibbs anchored the innings to help his team post 143/6 in 20 overs.
Anil Kumble took four for 16 but his efforts went in vain as RCB produced a poor batting display. Roelof van der Merwe scored a 21-ball 32 while Ross Taylor hit 27 to take their team close but RCB's lower middle-order failed miserably and they fell six runs short as Deccan Chargers lifted their maiden title.
IPL 2008, Rajasthan Royals vs Chennai Super Kings
The inaugral final was played between Rajasthan and Chennai and in hindsight was arguably the most closely-fought summit clash in IPL history. Chennai, put into bat, got off to a solid start. All the players got starts but failed to convert it into a big score as CSK posted 163/5 in 20 overs.
Rajasthan found themselves in a spot of bother at 42 for three but were rescued by Yusuf Pathan's 56 off 39 balls. By the end, Rajasthan needed one off the final ball with Sohail Tanvir taking strike and captain Shane Warne at the other end. The Pakistani pacer managed to get the crucial run as the rest, as they say, is history.

Five Key facts of the final between MI and RPS
1. Dhoni will appear in a record seventh IPL final. He has won the titles in 2010 and 2011 while leading now suspended Chennai Super Kings.
2. Pune hold a perfect 3-0 record against Mumbai. And interestingly enough, Chennai were the only other team to have recorded a similar feat against Mumbai, in 2010.
3. This is Mumbai's fourth final, after 2010, 2013 and 2015 — all against Chennai. They won in 2013 and 2015.
4. Kieron Pollard is the danger man when it comes to IPL finals. The West Indian has most runs, sixes and also the highest strike rate for Mumbai in IPL finals. He was the man of the match in 2013 final.
5. Washington Sundar, if he plays, will be the youngest ever player to feature in an IPL finale. The 17-year-old spinner will break Ravindra Jadeja's record. The India all-rounder was 19 when he won the inaugural tournament with Rajasthan Royals in 2008.
