Another exciting edition of Indian Premier League (IPL) came to an end as Mumbai Indians successfully defended their title at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. The defending champions chased down 157 runs set by Delhi Capitals batting first on Tuesday night. We bring the full list of award winners of IPL 2020.
It was a one-sided final in Dubai as Mumbai Indians rightly dominated the proceedings. Trent Boult shredded fire with the new ball to reduce Delhi Capitals for 22 for three. But Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant bailed them out with a 96-run partnership. But Mumbai Indians pulled things back giving only 20 runs in the last three overs to restrict them to 156 runs.
In the chase, Rohit Sharma & Co looked in complete control of the run chase. Rohit played a captain’s knock while Quinton de Kock and Suryakumar Yadav gave brisk starts. Ishan Kishan played another gem of a knock unbeaten on 33 off 19 to take Mumbai Indians home as Shreyas Iyer looked completely out of options against a heavy batting line-up.
