"MS is the most consistent captains (in the game) that we have. That's why we are in the final six times from eight appearances," told a news conference at the team hotel on the eve of the final of IPL 8.

Mumbai Indians denied CSK a third title in the 2013 final at the same venue and the loss was still fresh in their mind, Raina said. "When you're taking on MI, you have to really play very good cricket. We still remember the loss against them in the 2103 final," Raina stated on a cautious note.

Stressing on the importance to enjoy the proceedings, CSK middle-order mainstay said that key to success would be to build a partnership on a slow Eden Gardens track.

"Wickets get slow after 10 overs so if you have partnership you can put on big totals with big players like Dhoni, Bravo down the order. It becomes difficult for other teams to chase down." With Harbhajan Singh back in his best, Raina cited they would have to play watchful cricket   early on.
