Highlights

  • 23:58 (IST)

    Rohit Sharma: Pretty happy with how things went the entrie season. We said at the start that we want to make winning a habit. Guys have been excellent, yuou couldn't ask anything more. We were right on the money from Ball 1 and till today we didn't look back.

  • 23:52 (IST)

    Mahela Jayawardene: It was a tough tournament for us. Obviously the tag of champions, and then the fact that MI haven't won in even years. I must congratulate Ricky and his team. What we've done over the years is being consistent with the preparations. This year has been a bit different due to the siatuon but we've tried to do the same thing. It's been in Mumbai's DNA for a long time - the six hitting ability. What we've tried to bring it get the touch play as well, the strike rotation and keeping the tempo. Credit to the management for all the work as well. It's all about helping their preparation. Making sure they understand their roles, try and give them little work to do in the middle. Not just Rohit, but everyone's been doing their work. This group has been fantastic. They've worked really hard off season and through the season, and shown great commitment.

  • 23:49 (IST)

    Shreyas Iyer: I've mentioned it heaps of times. He's (Ricky Ponting) probably the best guy I've worked with. The amount of freedom he has given each and every playeris amazing. I respect him a lot as a coach and the way he has been conducting team meetings, has been amazing. IPL always amazes you. It's the toughest league to play. I feel overhwhelmed to be a part of such an amazing league. Reaching the final is a great achievement, it's not a small thing. It's been a journey and an emotional one being up and down. It was a great achievement, but winning the IPL is one step ahead. That's what we were looking forward to this year, but we'll come back stronger next year.

    Devdutt Padikkal from RCB wins the Emerging player of the year award.

  • 23:33 (IST)

    Man of the Match Trent Boult: nice to be contributing. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Obviously with no cricket this year. To get across tonight has made it all worth it. Little bit of a niggle coming into the night, it has been great fun though. I'd like to say I'm relatively experienced and it's just another match. I just wanted to give a good start. Trying and get early wickets, swing it a little bit.

  • 23:13 (IST)

    Kieron Pollard: It's a great feeling, means a lot. Having been here for 11 years, fifth trophy. No one sees the preparation and planning. There is pressure playing for a big franchise. The amount of trophies, the amount of players that play for different countries, you have to say so. The way we tick boxes - openers, middle order batters, death bowlers, we have abundance of them. Kudos to the backroom work and the owners. Long may it continue. Five trophies is unprecedented. Dwayne Bravo, you're behind now, I'm in front, just had to say it on camera!

  • 23:07 (IST)

    Quinton de Kock: Great set up, with the gym work and training and stuff. It has been difficult times for everyone. We held in and reaped the rewards. Because there was so much questions around the Mumbai Indians team, on whether we can win back to back, everyone worked extra hard. And it paid off, congrats to all the guys. It wasn't just the players, the whole support staff and everyone. Feels good to win it.

    What a knock from Rohit Sharma. 68 off 51. Was out of form coming into the game, was chasing a tricky target... but he put all that behind with a superb attacking knock. And what a captain he has been for MI. A superb decision to play Jayant Yadav today in the final, and it paid off. As did his bowling changes.

Rohit Sharma: Pretty happy with how things went the entrie season. We said at the start that we want to make winning a habit. Guys have been excellent, yuou couldn't ask anything more. We were right on the money from Ball 1 and till today we didn't look back.

A lo of credit goes to the people who work behind the scene. We have to give credit to them as well. Our work starts much earlier than when the IPL starts. We analyse what went wrong the previous season. We have to find the right balance where you stay calm. I'm not someone who will run behind a stick, I'll give them confidence. In our squad, the batting order, we've kept rotating Krunal, Hardik and pollard. They understand their roles. In the bowling department, today Rahul Chahar missed out but we tactically wanted Jayant. Those are the things you want to do in a big game. And for the guy missing out, you put an arm around and say you've not done anything wrong. Rahul took it on his chin.

They've been absolutely brilliant. We made sure they get the freedom. Ishan is somebody you can't cloud his judgment, you just have to let him loose. Suryakumar you have seen through the season... he plays some unbelievable shot. The kind of form he was in, I should have sacrificed my wicket but he did it. I give him credit for that, it's not easy. You have to keep motivating them, and they come out with such performances.

Unfortunately we couldn't have the fans at the stadium. Fans' support mean a lot. Missed playing at Wankhede.

SKY

Amazing feeling. Before coming here, we were chatting that we have won the tournament in odd years, we wanted to break that jinx.
Routines and preparation is very important. The support staff and management has said we'll take care of all this, you just go out and express yourself.
He was batting really well, most importantly he has been anchoring the innings since the first game. I don't mind sacrificing my wicket for him at all.


Bumrah: The processes had given us results. We wanted to break the alternate-year jinx, so very happy. It means a great deal. It's a difficult time with everyone stuck at home. We're privileged lot, we could entertain people watching as well. If this could bring smiles, that's the best we could do. Very happy we could do that as well. From the first game, I felt my rhythm was up. When I bowled the Super Over here, I had to execute what I had to against AB and Virat, and I was happy with my execution. I tried to keep it simple, it helped me and I've been doing that again and again.

Ishan Kishan: I was not looking in good shape before the season. I had a chat with Hardik and Krunal, they asked me to improve my fitness and work on my off side batting.


Krunal: It's the hunger to be at the top always. We've never taken any season lightly. There has always been 100% effort from the boys. A lot depends on how we prepared too, how in Mumbai we trained hard. Everyone knew their roles, everyone was in good shape and when the tournament started we just executed what we did in the nets.

There has never been a doubt about Ishan's talent. He was ready to improve. The moment you know you're lacking in something, he was willing to improve. It was not easy to bat at 4, then open the batting and again come back to No. 4. Really happy the way he has gone this season, hope he continues.

Hardik: I enjoy what I do anyways. This year I wasn't able to bowl, but it was all about preparation. We focused on improving day by day and we implemented it on the ground.

22:56 (IST)

MI vs DC Dream11 Team Predictions, IPL 2020, Mumbai Indians vs Delhi Capitals: Playing XI, Cricket Fantasy Tips

Preview

DC will need to spring a surprise or two and take a few gambles and calculated risks if they are to upset (yes, it will be an upset!) MI in the final of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 in Dubai on the 10th of November. Everything is in MI's favour - they have the more balanced team, more superstars, form, momentum, the better record in knockouts and playoffs and a big psychological advantage having beaten DC three times in the group stages - including two thrashing wins in Dubai!

MI has been, by far, the best team in the tournament. They topped the group stage and then beat DC in the Qualifier 1 to make it to their 6th IPL final. The four-time champions have the most balanced side in the competition with most of their top guns firing on all cylinders. Ishan Kishan has exceeded expectations this season and is MI's joint-highest run-scorer of IPL 2020. He has aggregated 483 runs in 12 innings at a strike rate of 144.17 including 4 fifties - he has been flexible batting at number 4 and as an opener and has scored big at a fast rate.

Quinton de Kock continues to score heavily for MI as an opener while Suryakumar Yadav has been their Mr Dependable at number 3. The striking statistic for MI is that not only have these three batsmen scored in excess of 400 runs but done so at a rate of above 140 (de Kock has a strike rate of 139.59).

MI's depth in their batting and the two trump cards in the middle order - Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard - makes them a very dangerous batting unit against any opposition. The two P's - Pollard and Pandya have a strike rate of 190.44 and 182.89 in IPL 2020 - no one has scored faster than them in the tournament. They have already played a few match-winning knocks showcasing their destructive prowess in the competition.

The only weak link for MI in the batting is their skipper, Rohit Sharma. Rohit has scored just 264 runs in 11 innings at a strike rate of 126.31 and has a high failure rate in the tournament - he has as many as 6 under-10 scores this season.

MI vs DC IPL Final Live Streaming: When and Where to Watch Mumbai Indians vs Delhi Capitals Today's Match Online

MI have the most potent bowling unit in IPL 2020. Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult have been outstanding with the new ball and have picked a combined 49 wickets in the tournament at a bowling average of 16.39 and stunning strike rate of 13.39! While Bumrah has accounted for 27 wickets in 14 matches, Boult has picked 22 wickets in the same number of matches. Combined, the Bumrah-Boult pair has taken 4 or more wickets in a match on 7 occasions in the tournament - MI has won all these 7 encounters! The relentless pressure from both ends with the variety and craft they bring with their contrasting styles has wreaked havoc on the opposition batsmen in the tournament. In as many as 11 matches, the pair have struck within the powerplay giving MI early momentum in the match.

The young leg break bowler, Rahul Chahar, has been very impressive too and has accounted for 15 wickets at an economy rate of 8.16 in the tournament.

DC began the tournament with a bang, then lost 4 matches in a row and left it to the last group stage match against RCB to make the playoffs. For DC to beat MI, they need Shikhar Dhawan to again score big at a fast clip in the final. The southpaw has already aggregated 603 runs in 16 matches at a strike rate of almost 146 and is the second-highest run-getter of the tournament. His opening stand with Marcus Stoinis will be crucial for DC against MI as they need to make use of the restrictions in the powerplay - easier said than done against the likes of Bumrah and Boult!

Skipper, Shreyas Iyer has been in indifferent form in the second-half of the tournament and has registered scores of 7, 25, 7, 12 and 21 in the last 5 matches. He has also not got going in any of these encounters and has not even scored a run a ball combined in these matches. Iyer needs a change in approach. If he is not getting the big runs he must not waste deliveries at number 3.

While Shimron Hetmyer was in good form against SRH in Qualifier 2, DC desperately need Rishabh Pant to come good in the final. Pant, one of the most destructive batsmen in IPL history, has been in poor form in the tournament. He has managed to score just 97 runs off 111 deliveries in the last 5 matches at a strike rate of 87.39 - extremely low for a lower-order batsman.

DC will rely heavily on their new ball opening pair of Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje to provide the initial breakthroughs. Rabada is the leading wicket-taker of IPL 2020 with 29 wickets at a strike rate of 12.9! Nortje has given him excellent support with 20 wickets but been a touch expensive in the last couple of matches.

Axar Patel will hold the key for DC in the middle overs. He has been one of the most restrictive bowlers of the tournament with an economy rate of just 6.61.

MI have the best win percentage amongst all teams in IPL playoffs/knockout matches. They have played 17 such matches and won 11 of them including the Qualifier 1 against DC in Dubai this year. DC, on the other hand, have won just 2 of the 8 knockout/playoff matches they have played in the IPL. While it will be DC's first IPL final, MI has already been there on five previous instances - this will be their sixth final! This big-match temperament - ie the ability to rise to the occasion and raise one's game in the big matches further shifts the odds in MI's favour.

Mumbai Indians Team News: MI may just spring a surprise and open with Ishan Kishan. That would give an out of form Rohit Sharma some breathing space and play the role of the playmaker at number 4. No changes are expected in the playing XI.

Possible Playing XI: Ishan Kishan, Quinton de Kock, Suryakumar Yadav, Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Rahul Chahar, Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah

Delhi Capitals Team News: DC may promote Rishabh Pant at number 3 just to upset the plan and rhythm of the MI bowlers. But if an early wicket falls then the more likely candidate to walk out is Ajinkya Rahane. The XI should remain unchanged.

Possible Playing XI: Marcus Stoinis, Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane, Shreyas Iyer, Shimron Hetmyer, Rishabh Pant, Praveen Dubey, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje

Head-to- Head Record – Last 5 Matches
