IPL 2020 | Mumbai Indians beat DC by 5 wkts to win fifth IPL title

What Australia is to World cricket, Mumbai Indians is to Indian Premier League. The MI easily chased the 157-run target set by Delhi Capitals in 18.4 overs with five wickets in hand. With this, they claimed their record fifth Indian Premier League title.

The MI skipper led from the front with a half-century and young Ishan Kishan stayed not out on 33 as MI made light work of the chase.

Delhi Capitals captain Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant struck impressive fifties to propel DC to 156/7 in the IPL 2020 final against Mumbai Indians in Dubai today. Iyer remained unbeaten on 65 off 50 balls and Pant scored 56 off 38 balls.

This happened after MI’s Trent Boult removed Marcus Stoinis and Ajinkya Rahane early and then got the important wicket of Shimron Hetmyer.

DC won the toss and opted to bat first in the Indian Premier League 2020 final in Dubai, UAE today. Jayant Yadav cleaned up Shikhar Dhawan to further strengthen MI’s position in the match.

MI brought in off-spinner Jayant Yadav in place of leg-spinner Rahul Chahar while DC went in with an unchanged XI. Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals have earned the rights to be in the finals of what can be termed as the toughest and most evenly contested IPLs in the history of the tournament. The 13th edition of Indian Premier League saw all 8 teams winning six matches each for the first time but in the end the table toppers defending champions Mumbai Indians and first-timers Delhi Capitals beat everyone else to earn the rights to be in the finals.
