Mumbai Indians have won all three games against Delhi Capitals in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 and that winning run has further strengthened their head-to-head record against the first-time finalists. Mumbai, four-time champions of the IPL in 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2019, finished at the top of the points table throughout the league stage of the tournament – where they won both their games against Delhi – before winning the Qualifier 1, also against Delhi, to book a place in the last.
Mumbai have played like well-oiled machine in IPL 2020, tasting defeat on just five occasions out of the 15 games that they’ve played.
A strong batting line-up of Rohit Sharma, Quinton de Kock, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Kieron Pollard and Hardik Pandya has been well-complemented by their ace pace duo of Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult, either one of whom are a few of the top three wicket takers in the tournament thus far.
Delhi, then again, have blown cold and warm after starting their season off with a flurry of wins. They qualified for the playoffs by winning their final league game against Royal Challengers Bangalore after having missing four in a row.
They missing to Mumbai in Qualifier 1 but whip SunRisers Hyderabad in Qualifier 2 to make their first IPL last. Shikhar Dhawan, Marcus Stoinis and Kagiso Rabada are the men in form for Delhi.
