Although there wasn't a lot of difference between the Originals and the Rockets on the ladder when the league stage ended, it needs to be said that the Rockets had a more consistent run. They lost only one game in the entire league stage and will not want to experience that result again in the match that matters the most.
The primary reason for Trent Rockets superb show was their excellent batting unit consisting of Dawid Malan, Alex Hales, Tom Kohler Cadmore, and Colin Munro available. They have hard-hitters available right through the orders and that can be a game-changing factor in the format like this.
On the bowling front as well, they look pretty well balanced with the likes of Sam Cook and Luke Wood doing well. With Tabraiz Shamsi preferring to play CPL, their spin department has certainly taken a massive hit. A lot will not depend on Samit Patel to keep things tight in the middle overs and it is not going to be easy.
The Rockets have all the resources available on paper and execution is what will matter. If they are able to play to their potential here, they will be a very tough side to get past.

Manchester Originals took the longer route to reach the finale - defeating London Spirit in the eliminator, after racking up five wins on the trot. Coming into the finale, they have won six back to back wins to their name with three of those coming without Jos Buttler available.
Interestingly, Manchester Originals have gotten better as the tournament has progressed. They have been so good in their recent matches that even the absence of Jos Buttler wasn't felt. This upcoming match will be a difficult assignment for them and they will want to be at their best coming into this one. If they can do that, they will stand a pretty good chance to get the title here.

This is the match that eight teams have fought for over the last month. The two teams have both been excellent in the tournament and have their respective strengths and weaknesses. This will be a battle of nerves and the team that handles pressure better will likely come out on top. While Manchester Originals have the momentum, Trent Rockets have a better-balanced side. However, the absence of Tabraiz Shamsi is certainly a bit setback for them. Given the odds and the way Manchester Originals have played of late, they are certainly the side to bet on for the finale. Back Manchester Originals to win this match and grab the title.
