Indian Premier League 2020: Mumbai Indians vs. Delhi Capitals, Finals
Winners Prediction: Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals face off for the fourth time this season in the all-important finals. MI has been the best side this season so far dominating right from the start of the season. DC on other hand after a good start struggled in the final stages of league phase. DC`s best win in their last 7 games came in Qualifier 2 against SRH. We expect Mumbai Indians to win this match and lift their fifth title of the IPL.
Score Prediction: Dubai is a good placed track where the batsmen can score big runs if they can settle in. Spinners may find some grip and turn on the pitch. We expect the score to be around 160-180 runs on this pitch.
Toss Prediction: Both captains will look to bat first as this is a big match and dew factor might take a back seat in this match in toss consideration.
Predicted Playing XI:
MUMBAI INDIANS: Rohit Sharma (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Nathan Coulter Nile, Rahul Chahar, Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah
DELHI CAPITALS: Ajinkya Rahane, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer(c), Rishabh Pant(w), Marcus Stoinis, Shimron Hetmyer, Ravichandran Ashwin, Axar Patel, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Praveen Dubey

- MI beat DC three times this season so far with all 3 wins achieved by a comfortable margin.
- MI has won the title 4 times (6th final this year) while DC play their first final in 13 seasons this year.
Players to Bet on:
- Quinton De Kock – Quinton De Kock has scored 483 runs at a strike rate off nearly 140+ this season and will look to give yet another good start at the top. We expect him make a big score in this match too.
- Suryakumar Yadav – SKY has been the batting pillar in the middle order with 450+ runs this season. His ability to play unorthodox shots will make him a tough batsmen to contain for the DC bowlers.
