Summary of IPL 2020 FINAL:


The defending champions and the most successful team in the IPL history MI took on a young DC team who were playing in their first IPL Final. Mumbai Indians started as the favourites while cricket fans of most of the remaining 7 franchises hoped for a new champion to be crowned.

Delhi Capitals won the toss and elected to bat first in what was a crucial decision as the stats showed that MI had previously won four finals after batting first. However, things did not go according to the plan as MI struck early once again to cripple the DC top order. Trent Boult took two wickets to put DC on the back foot.

At 22-3 in just the fourth over, it seemed as though it would be yet another dominating performance by the Mumbai bowlers, but Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant showed some resistance to get DC back into the match. Both the players scored half-centuries to put Delhi in a commanding position.

The way they both were batting, DC looked set to out a big score on board. The MI bowling department made an excellent come back as Jasprit Bumrah tightened up the leakage and other bowlers took crucial wickets to restrict the score to 156. There was a shift of momentum towards the end and DC fell short by 20-30 runs of what they should have got, with the position they were in.

The MI batting has been ruthless this season and they showed it once again. Quinton De Kock and Rohit Sharma took the attack to the DC bowlers as they smashed boundaries all around the park to give an explosive start to MI.

The golden man for DC Marcus Stoinis dismissed De Kock on the very first ball of his spell to give DC fans a glimmer of hope. However, the talking point of the match was the wicket of Surya Kumar Yadav. Things seemed going as usual for MI when Rohit Sharma wrongly judged a single which was never on. SKY sacrificed his wicket for the skipper as he was runout in the IPL Final 2020.

Rohit Sharma made sure to make amends for his mistake as he played a match-winning inning of 68 to take Mumbai closer to their 5th IPL title. Delhi never had a chance after that as MI were ruthless in the chase to take home the IPL trophy once again.

Trent Boult was the Man of the Match for his 3 wickets to demolish the DC batting lineup. This was only the second time a team had successfully defended their title, the first being Chennai Super Kings in 2010 and 2011. MI were the deserving Champion as they showed their absolute dominance in their quest for yet another trophy. They were a level above the rest and it showed.
