Mumbai Indians scripted history winning the illustrious Indian Premier League (IPL) title for the fifth time beating Delhi Capitals by five wickets. The social media was on fire since Mumbai put a hand on the trophy. Meanwhile, Wasim Jaffer, who has been the latest Twitter sensation with his tweets, had a hilarious take on Mumbai’s title win.
Chasing a modest total, 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.
Earlier in the day, Trent Boult got Mumbai Indians off to another fiery start with a wicket off the first ball negating the Marcus Stoinis threat. Delhi Capitals were in danger of being blown away on the big stage reeling at 22 for three in their first IPL final ever.
Take some time off – Wasim Jaffer to Mumbai Indians
While Mumbai Indians unleashed all their cards, Delhi Capitals skipper Shreyas Iyer held the fort high alongside Rishabh Pant, who was due for a big knock. They led the recovery steadily before threatening to explode towards the end. But Mumbai Indians pulled off giving away just 20 runs off the final three overs and restricting Delhi Capitals to 156 runs which was not enough to seal a victory.
The social media was flooded with congratulatory message ever since Mumbai Indians hit the final runs. Wasim Jaffer posted a hilarious tweet to congratulate the five-time IPL winners. The Kings XI Punjab head coach urged Mumbai to take a couple of years off from the competitions.
“Congratulations @mipaltan! Now go take a couple of years off, you’ve earned it. Winking face #IPL2020 #IPLfinal #MIvsDC #RohitSharma,” he has tweeted.
