22:50 hrs IST

Hardik Pandya is out

Would you believe it? With scores level Pandya goes for the big heave but fails to control the shot and ends up giving a catch to Rahane a mid wicket. The MI fans have to wait for another delivery to celebrate.

22:47 hrs IST

Ishan Kishan hits a four

This should seal it for Mumbai Indians. Silky touch from Ishan Kishan. He knew there was no fielder in the deep third man so he just guided it past the keeper to collect a boundary and MI now need 5 runs to win IPL 2020.

22:44 hrs IST

Two fours and out for Pollard

Kieron Pollard hit back-to-back fours off Anrich Nortje but then dragged one from Kagiso Rabada. Surely there can’t be twist as big as this to turn this match around now? MI need 10 runs off 17 balls with 6 wickets in hand.

22:39 hrs IST

The MI skipper goes, DC still alive

OUT! Outstanding catch by the substitute fielder Lalit Yadav at deep mid wicket. It’s the Mumbai Indians skipper that has to take the long walk back and DC are still alive. It was a short delivery from Nortje and Rohit went for the pull but didn’t get all of it. He goes for a well-made 68 off 51 MI still need 20 off 22 balls.

22:35 hrs IST

Dubey to Kishan: FOUR, FOUR

Back to back boundaries. Ishan Kishan is running away with the game. Poor young Dubey, just too much pressure on him and he kisses his mark twice. Kishan is too good a player to let the opportunities go by. MI within touching distance of lifting their 5th title.

22:31 hrs IST

Stoinis to Ishan Kishan:SIX

That’s HUUUUUGGEEE! He might be a little man but boy can Ishan Kishan pack a punch. It’s for no reason he is the highest six-hitter of IPL 2020. He picked the slower one early and just launched in to it.

22:26 hrs IST

Axar Patel finishes his quota

Only 4 of the over and Axar Patel finishes his quota with figures of 4 overs 16 for none. Brilliant bowling but it’s the wickets column that needed something, that’s what is hurting Delhi at the moment. MI need 41 off 36 balls.

Fifty for MI captain

FOUR! A solid pull shot from Rohit Sharma, brilliant way to get to his 39th IPL fifty. He has to take the responsibility and guide Mumbai Indians home, especially after that run out of Suryakumar Yadav.

22:12 hrs IST

Suryakumar Yadav is run out

Terrible terrible mix-up in the middle and Suryakumar Yadav ends up sacrificing his wicket for the skipper. The MI captain wanted a run after hitting it to mid-off but Suryakumar was going nowhere. In the end, the youngster took a couple of steps and sacrificed his wicket. Is that the wicket that gives DC the oxygen?

22:06 hrs IST

Mi skipper breaks the shackles

SIX! SIX! Signature Rohit. Class written all over those big shots. He puts the young leggie under pressure. The first one was simple extension of the arms after a big stride. In the next, he didn’t get it from the middle but had enough to carry it over the ropes. MI 81/1 after 9 overs.

22:03 hrs IST

Good period of play for Delhi Capitals

Super from Axar Patel, only 2 runs from the over. The 3 overs of spin have leaked only 9 runs. Just the kind of control Iyer needs obver the game to induce a false short from the MI batsmen.

21:47 hrs IST

Stoinis to de Kock: OUT

The man with the golden arm does the job for Delhi Capitals. Marcus Stoinis is over the moon and why wouldn’t he. He has got rid of de Kock on his first delivery. The MI keeper wanted to guided fine but the extra bounce did him in. He got an outside edge to Pant. MI: 45/1

21:42 hrs IST

Ashwin to de Kock: FOUR

21:38 hrs IST

18 runs off Rabada’s first over

Quinton de Kock hits Rabada for a six and then takes another couple to end what turns out to be an 18-run over (Including the 4 leg byes). But what an assault against the opposition’s best bowler. MI 27/0 after 2 overs.

MI vs DC live score, IPL final

Delhi Capitals have finished with 156/7. DC will be happy to have a fighting total on board after losing three wickets for nothing. Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant deserve a lot of credit for their fifties Trent Boult was the star for MI, who finished with 3 for 30. Nathan Coulter-Nile too did his job by picking up 2 for 29.

21:13 hrs IST

Coulter-Nile to Iyer: Six

That’s more like it. That made it a cracking sound. Short delivery from Coulter-Nile and Iyer pulls it away over deep mid wicket for a six, a much needed one for DC.

21:11 hrs IST

Coulter-Nile to Patel: OUT

Didn’t get it anywhere near the middle of the bat Axar Patel. Simple catch in the deep. It was a low full toss from Coulter-Nile and they are always hard to hit.

21:10 hrs IST

Only six runs from Bumrah’s last over

No wickets for Bumrah today so Kagiso Rabada will take the Purple cap but what an over to bowl in the 19th. Only six runs from it. DC are not getting the flourish they desperately need.

21:07 hrs IST

Bumrah to Iyer: NOT OUT

Umpire’s call on impact so Iyer survives but MI retain their review. They for the review. It did appear close as Iyer had just walked outside off and played all around it but hawk-eye showed the impact to be on-field umpire’s call and he had decided to adjudge him not out.

21:05 hrs IST

Bumrah with the penultimate over

Jasprit Bumrah has the duty of bowling the penultimate over. Pressure on Iyer and Patel to score big against one of the best bowlers of the world.

21:03 hrs IST

IPL 2020 final live score and updates

FOUR! Axar Patel gets off the mark with a boundary. It was short from Bout and Patel slapped it past point and away from the third man fielder to collect his first four.

21:01 hrs IST

Boult to Hetmyer: OUT

Change of pace from Trent Boutl does the trick. Hetmyer didn’t pick it up. He tried to wait and wait for the ball but it didn’t arrive and he ended up slicing it to the short third man fielder. Important wicket for MI as he can do a lot of damage.

20:58 hrs IST

11 runs off the Bumrah over

Two boundaries in the Jasprit Bumrah over, DC are getting move on. 17 overs gone and D are at 136 for 4. With Iyer and Hyemyer in the middle they sure won’t be satisfied with anything less than 170-175.

20:55 hrs IST

Fifty for Shreyas Iyer

16th IPL fifty for Shreyas Iyer. He had just reached the 500-run mark for the first time in an IPL season too. This is a prolific season for the DC captain and needs to carry on.

20:52 hrs IST

Yadav to Hetmyer: FOUR

That’s why Hetmyer is so good. He made his mind of going over extra cover even before the ball was bowled. He made room for himself and lofted in over the in-field. DC 125/4 after 16 overs.

20:45 hrs IST

MI vs DC live score: Coulter-Nile gets Pant

OUT! Just what MI needed and DC didn’t. Rishabh Pant is gutted. It was there to be hit but he just didn’t connect the hook shot well and ended up providing a simple catch to fine leg. The partnership has been broken by Nathan Coulter-Nile. Pant walks back for 56 off 38 balls.

20:45 hrs IST

Fifty for Rishabh Pant

FOUR! Fine way to get to is first fifty of IPL 2020. RIshabh Pant has risen to the occasion. When the chips were down he decided to take the matter son his own hands but his job is not done yet, he needs to stay there and ensure DC get close to 180.

20:41 hrs IST

Pandya to Pant: FOUR

What was that? A sweep? A paddle? Or perhaps both. Never mind, let’s just say it was a Rishabh Pant special. Full on the pads and Pant times it perfectly to collect yet another a boundary, this time it ruins what was turning out to be good over from Krunal Pandya.

20:34 hrs IST

Live score MI vs DC IPL 2020 final

A good over from Coulter-Nile. Only 5 runs of the over and umpire’s have called for the second strategic time out. This time DC are the ones who will be breathing a sigh of relief and in fact feeling confident of putting up a good score thanks to this brilliant partnership between Iyer and Pant. DC: 99/3 after 13 overs.

20:28 hrs IST

Shreyas Iyer joins the party

SIX! Shreyas Iyer has enough of the supporting role. He now decides to go big. He picks the length early, gets into position early and deposits it deep in the stands. Delhi are making a strong comeback.

20:18 hrs IST

Rishabh Pant hits another six

That’s huge, even bigger than the first one. Rishabh Pant has announced himself in the final. Another case of superb use of the feet from Pant but this time he goes over mid wicket and goes long. DC need Pant to be in this mood.

20:16 hrs IST

Pandya to Pant: SIX

CRACKING SHOT! That’s the Rishabh Pant we all know and we all have been searching all IPL. Swift movement of the feet to charge down the track and then a superb extension of the arms to his flat and straight over the bowler’s head for a six.

20:14 hrs IST

MI ahead of DC at first timeout

9 overs have been bowled and DC have reached 59 for 3 after opting to bat first. Mumbai Indians will know they have their noses in front thanks to the brilliant opening spell of Trent Boult but Iyer and Pant have just started to bring DC back.

20:11 hrs IST

MI vs DC live score: Iyer, Pant putting on a stand

Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant have somewhat resurrected the Delhi Capitals innings and taken them past 50. Now they somehow have to find a way to score quickly against the MI spinner Yadav and Krunal Pandya. Yadav has bowled another decent over for 8 runs. DC: 59/3 after 9 overs.

20:05 hrs IST

Jayant Yadav bowls a tidy over

Only 5 runs from the over. Jayant Yadav is proving to be a superb tactical move from MI. He has picked up the prized wicket of Shikhar Dhawan and has given away only 10 runs in his 2 overs.

20:00 hrs IST

Shreyas Iyer gets another four

Poor delivery from Nathan Coulter-Nile. Straying down the pads of any subcontinent batsman is not a good idea. All Iyer had to do was to nudge it past fine leg. The DC captain has gone off to a good start.

19:55 hrs IST

Shreyas Iyer collects a four

FOUR! That is nicely placed. Length ball outside off, Shreyas Iyer camps back, stands tall and punches it wide of Krunal at cover-point. The ball races away for a boundary.

19:45 hrs IST

Jayant Yadav to Shikhar Dhawan: OUT

BOWLED! Shikhar Dhawan is out of here. Everything Mumbai are doing is turning into gold. They got Jayant Yadav in who has struck in his first over and he has got a huge wicket. That is a poor shot from Dhawan. This is slower through the air, it lands on middle. Dhawan looks to play the slog sweep but misses it completely. The ball pitches and then turns away a little and hits the stumps. Delhi succumbing to the pressure of the final here.

19:42 hrs IST

Boult to Iyer: FOUR

Lucky there, Iyer. Short ball, outside off, at a searing pace. Iyer looked to play at it but then tries to pull away at the last minute. But he is a bit late, the ball takes the outside edge and flies over the slips, to third man, a boundary.
