In a rematch of IPL 2020's Qualifier 1, the Delhi Capitals (DC) will lock horns with the Mumbai Indians (MI) in the summit clash. The Delhi-based franchise qualified for their first IPL final with a comprehensive win over the Sunrisers Hyderabad in Qualifier 2.
Defending champions MI have been in red-hot form this year. They topped the IPL 2020 points table in the league stage and followed that up with a clinical display versus the Shreyas Iyer-led outfit in Qualifier 1. Skipper Rohit Sharma will expect his men to replicate the same performance at the Dubai International Stadium.
The Mumbai Indians start as the favorites to win this contest as they have recorded a hat-trick of wins over the Capitals this year. The 4-time winners trounced the Ricky Ponting-coached franchise twice in the first round and then completed a hat-trick in the playoffs.
Still, the Delhi Capitals do have some momentum on their side, having defeated an in-form SRH in their previous match. Dubai will host the IPL 2020 final, and here's a look at the pitch report and weather conditions for this match.
