Hence the final for IPL T20 is decided. It is indeed full of surprises. With a thumping and comprehensive win in Qualifier 1, Mumbai Indians have already qualified for the final and look like they are ready to rampage their opponent in the final. In Qualifier 1, table toppers Mumbai Indians went head to head with the second-placed Delhi Capitals. Batting first, they had a slow start but their middle order duo Ishan Kishan and Hardik Pandya helped them reach a mammoth total of 200 in 20 overs. In reply to that, Delhi Capitals’ opening stance was rattled by Trent Boult and Jasprit Bumrah as they lost three wickets for no runs. Captain Shreyas Iyer too, could not endure the wrath of them and fell for a score under ten runs. Delhi Capitals’ all-rounder, Marcus Stoinis and Axar Patel put a huge partnership but still could not retain themselves at the crease thus losing miserably whose live cricket score can be followed on online sites. Thus, for the fourth time this season, Mumbai Indians meet Delhi Capital for the finals. Delhi Capitals are in the finals for the first time and they would be highly reluctant to win this game.

IPL 2020 Final: Pitch Report
The latest match updates say that the pitch at the Dubai International Stadium has always been a bowler dominant pitch. Runs have come at a premium, with top batsmen struggling to score against the bowling attack. But with constant dew settlement on the ground, the pitch turns slow with all the soaking. By the end of the match, bowlers and especially pacers would struggle too, generating enough pace. Batsmen have struggled facing slower deliveries, so it would be a problem for batsmen.
Mumbai Indians Expected Lineup
Mumbai Indians IPL 2020 Player List: Rohit Sharma (C), Quinton de Kock (wk), Keiron Pollard, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Trent Boult, Surya Kumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Krunal Pandya, Rahul Chahar, Nathan Coulter Nile

IPL 2020, Final: Overall Prediction
Four times IPL winners face the first time final playing team Delhi Capitals. Though Mumbai Indians have defeated the Delhi Capitals all three times this season, today’s match prediction says that Delhi Capitals would not be leaving it loose and would want to give their best to win the final as they not only qualified for the first time to play the finals but also to avoid the league quadruplet against Mumbai Indians. Two of the world’s top pace bowlers; Jasprit Bumrah and Kagiso Rabada would come head to head in this match. Indian National Team openers Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan would have an immense tussle in the finale. On the flip side, Mumbai Indians would be going hard on Delhi Capitals again to have a league quadruplet but most importantly to win their fifth Indian Premier League title and be the record holders again. In this scenario, both the teams need to keep their nerve, especially Delhi Capitals, who are playing it for the first time.
