Delhi had to wait till Qualifier 2, to seal a berth in the finals. They defeated SunRisers Hyderabad by 17 runs. DC also finished the league phase in second position.
Meanwhile, Mumbai defeated DC in Qualifier 1, to reach the final. They also wrapped up the league phase in top spot. Having already won the title four times, which is also the highest, MI stand a chance to extend that record.
Other than Qualifier 1, both sides have faced each other twice this season. In Match 27, DC lost to MI by five wickets, with Quinton de Kock scoring a match-winning half-century.
Then in Match 51, MI won again, grabbing a victory by nine wickets. Ishan Kishan scored an unbeaten knock of 72 runs and Jasprit Bumrah scalped three dismissals.
