The Mumbai Indians and the Delhi Capitals are going to play each other for the fourth time this season. This time it is the IPL 2020 Final and title at stake. All three prior meetings have gone the way of the Mumbai Indians. Those wins have been one-sided in favour of Mumbai and we have no doubt that the defending champions are going to be full of confidence.
DC won very convincingly against SRH and redeemed itself after its poor performance against MI in the 1st Qualifier. This is the first IPL final that DC is going to play. Nerves are going to play a big role as it prepares for its biggest challenge yet.
Will we have a first-time IPL winner in DC or is it going to be IPL trophy number five for MI?
MI vs DC IPL 2020 Final is going to be played at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai on the 10th of November 2020.
MI has had a nice break after winning the Qualifier against DC. Its performance in that match was absolutely perfect and we don’t think there is going to be any change in the playing eleven. The batting has plenty of depth in power, something that DC is going to find it hard to match.
Quinton de Kock, Suryakumar Yadav, and Ishan Kishan have been in terrific form. All three of them are among the top-8 scorers of IPL 2020. Interestingly, Ishan Kishan and Quinton de Kock have the exact same total of 483 runs and will be eyeing 500 for sure.
Ishan Kishan also has 29 sixes to his name, the most for any batsman this season. Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard have 25 and 22 to their name respectively as well, making the MI lower-order far more powerful than DC’s (or any other side in this season of the IPL).
MI has scored close to 100 runs in the last five overs multiple times and so it can be never counted out, even after a poor start.
Rohit Sharma has been a bit out of form but it is difficult to look past him. He could use this IPL final to lay to rest any doubts about his fitness.
If you thought that MI’s batting was strong, its bowling is even stronger! Jasprit Bumrah has 10 wickets in his last three games and is in prime form. He and Trent Boult are second and third on the list of top wicket-takers this season.
Rahul Chahar, Krunal Pandya, Kieron Pollard, and Nathan Coulter-Nile ensure that there is never an easy over for the opposition to target.
MI has been the best team of IPL 2020 by far. It is not, however, unbeatable. It was just two matches back that MI was beaten by 10 wickets although a lot of its first-choice players were missing.
Rohit Sharma, Quinton de Kock, SA Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Trent Boult, Jayant Yadav, JJ Bumrah.
The Delhi Capitals have been excellent this season but ended up losing form at just the wrong time. It has lost five out of its last seven matches. More importantly, it has lost two out of its last four matches against the Mumbai Indians.
It is going to take something special for DC to be able to win this match and they will need to think about something out of the box like what they against SRH.
DC has some obvious strengths. It has a very good bowling attack led by Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje. The two South African pacers are going to need to come hard at the MI batsmen. We saw that MI attacked every single DC bowler in the previous match and put them off their lengths.
The same effort will no doubt be made in this match too.
However, Ravi Ashwin, Axar Patel, and a combination of Marcus Stoinis and Praveen Dubey will challenge any batting lineup. The spinners are going to be challenged but if DC can take some early wickets it should be able to make their life easier.
DC’s batting has been unsteady in recent matches. Shikhar Dhawan has carried much of the load and will need to put up another big effort in the IPL final. Marcus Stoinis opened the batting against SRH and we expect to see him there once more.
This will allow DC to play with Shreyas Iyer, Shimron Hetmyer, and Rishab Pant in the middle. Ajinkya Rahane played in the previous match but did not really play a role. He could be used as a floater if DC loses an early wicket.
Marcus Stoinis, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Shimron Hetmyer, RR Pant, Ajinkya Rahane, Axar Patel, Praveen Dubey, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje.
We think DC will end up batting and MI will chase no matter who wins the toss. DC has played better when it has batted first while MI backs itself to chase down any total. The dew factor could play into MI’s hands but that is a risk that DC will be willing to take.

There has been a gap of five days between matches in Dubai and so the groundsman would have had enough time to work on the pitch. Expect a good batting track for this match, similar to what we saw in the previous game.
There has been some dew around and that is likely to make things easier for the team batting first.
Dubai has been home to some of the best contests this season of the IPL and we could have another great one in the final.

DC is up against a tough task in this match. It is facing a side that has no apparent weaknesses and with most of its players in form. The only way to win is for one of DC’s players to have an excellent game.
However, from a betting point of view, there is more value in backing DC. The momentum of playing matches and winning close games is a big advantage and that is where DC could hold a slight edge.
Also, getting better than 2x return on a side like DC is absolutely worth the money right now.
Bet on Delhi Capitals to win.
The biggest advantage that Mumbai has going for this bet is its bowlers. With Trent Boult and Jasprit Bumrah in the lineup, an early wicket is always around the corner. Quinton de Kock and Rohit Sharma are far more experienced as an opening pair than anything that DC can come up with.
Some easy money right here in our opinion.
This is a high-risk high-reward bet but we think this may be the time to pull the trigger on it. There are two strong teams going up against each other on what should be a high-scoring surface. The likes of Quinton de Kock, Shikhar Dhawan, or Rohit Sharma can easily get a century if they get set.
Worth the risk in our opinion.
The team that wins the match is often the one that hits more sixes. DC has Stoinis, Dhawan, Iyer, and Hetmyer all of whom are excellent strikers of the ball. MI has more power in its lineup than DC but the rate DC is just too good to ignore. Worth the risk.
The manner in which Bumrah is used by MI puts him in a great position to take wickets. He is always attacking and this is why he is near the top of the leaderboard as well. Two wickets are something that he should be able to take on an off-day, considering the form he is in.
