IPL 2020: Mumbai Indians Cruise To Fifth Title With Five-Wicket Win Over Delhi Capitals

Dubai: Mumbai Indians romped to their fifth Indian Premier League title by overcoming a tame challenge from Delhi Capitals in the final in Dubai, on Tuesday.

Chasing a meagre total of 157, the defending champions won the match by five wickets to successfully defend their title-becoming only the second team in the IPL after Chennai Super Kings to do so.

Delhi skipper Shreyas Iyer won the toss and opted to bat first. Their innings didn’t get off to a good start with them losing three wickets in quick succession- Shikhar Dhawan (15), Marcus Stoinis (0) and Ajinkya Rahane (2). However Iyer (65*) and Rishabh Pant (56) briefly resurrected the innings but Mumbai bowlers fought back towards the end to take a flurry of wickets and restrict the first-time finalists to just 156 runs.

For Mumbai, the best bowler was Trent Boult (3/30), who did some early damage to the Delhi batting-a blow from which they could not recover at the end.

In response, Mumbai Indians hardly looked to be in trouble with openers Quinton De Kock and skipper Rohit Sharma scoring 45 runs in just four overs. Despite De Kock falling for just 20 runs, Suryakumar Yadav (19) and Ishan Kishan (33*) ensured that there weren’t any hiccups in the chase. Sharma held things tightly at the other end with a solid 68 which eventually ensured that they chased down the total with eight balls to spare.

Brief scores: Mumbai Indians 157/5 (Sharma 68; Kishan 33*; Nortje 2/25) beat Delhi Capitals 156/7 (Iyer 65*, Pant 56; Boult 3/30) by five wickets.
