The Mumbai Indians come here as current holders and are the most successful team in the Indian Premier League having won four previous titles. They look to make it five here, which would be a huge achievement.
The Delhi Capitals are looking for their first title, this will be the first time they have reached the final of the competition.
Mumbai Indians Team News & Form
The Indians come here with a huge psychological advantage over the Capitals. Not only are they the defending champions, a team that has been here and done it all before, but they’ve played the Capitals in two of their last three games and won them both with ease.
The Indians won the qualifier game between these on Thursday by 57 runs after scoring 200. Also, in the penultimate match of the group stage, the Indians beat the Capitals with ease, restricting them to just 110 from 20 overs.
Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult have led the way with the ball, Bumrah has 27 wickets and Boult has 22. With the bat, Quinton de Kock, Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan are all closing in on 500 runs in the tournament.
This is a team, not a couple of strong players who are leading the way and anyone of them can turn up and put in a winning performance on the day.
Delhi Capitals Team News & Form
In many respects, the Capitals have nothing to lose here, going up against the champions and having lost their recent games against the Indians.
A strong victory over the Sunrisers Hyderabad has put the Capitals here, though as we all know, this is a big step up for them now.
Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje lead with the ball, Rabada has 29 wickets while Nortje has 20, they match up well with their opponents here.
Shikhar Dhawan has stood out incredibly with the bat, scoring over 600 runs while captain Shreyas Iyer has over 450 runs himself. Someone needs to step up and play a huge game on Tuesday.
We are siding with one of the stars of Indian cricket to be the star man in the IPL final this year. Jasprit Bumrah has bowled excellently, taking key wickets for his team throughout this competition.
He is taken to deliver big blows here too, we like his bowling style and think he can grab two or three Delhi wickets as he leads the Indians to another IPL title.
While the Capitals have been good this season, they have fell short when taking on the Mumbai Indians recently, our betting tip is for the Indians to win and exactly the same to happen again.
This has been a great tournament for the Mumbai team, they are coming to life at exactly the right time and they are our tip to win the 2020 IPL and round off a brilliant season.
