Mumbai Indians completed a dominating season with a commanding 5-wicket win over Delhi Capitals in the final of IPL 2020 in Dubai. With that sensational win over DC, MI became the most successful team in IPL history by adding a fifth title to their kitty.
While batting first, DC set 157 runs on the board and chasing that small target, MI’s captain Rohit Sharma and in-form opener Quinton de Kock launched a well thought out attack on Delhi’s bowling.
In the fifth over, Marcus Stoinis was brought into the attack, and he took the wicket of dangerous de Kock for 20 on his first delivery. However, Rohit kept the runs flowing along with Suryakumar until Suryakumar sacrifices his wickets.
Then MI skipper Rohit Sharma completes his half-century and eventually led the team close to victory with a knock of 68 runs with brilliant Ishan Kishan.
After Rohit was dismissed following an outstanding catch by Lalit Yadav, Kieron Pollard and Hardik Pandya quickly lost their wicket, but at that time, scores are leveled. Krunal Pandya scored the winning-run as MI won the match by five wickets to seal the deal.
Earlier, Delhi Capitals decided to bat first couldn’t be able to post a good total on the board. Marcus Stoinis walked back for a duck on the first ball of the innings, as the crafty Trent Boult managed to induce an edge. Sensational Boult again took the wicket of Ajinkya Rahane cheaply in his next over.
Rishabh Pant (56 runs off 38 balls) wickets turned the momentum back in Mumbai’s favor as the duo of Boult and Bumrah produced a masterclass of death bowling after that.
Shreyas Iyer unbeaten on 65 off 50 balls but the last five overs yielded only 38 runs as DC failed to complete their comeback.
