Rohit Sharma scored in the final with 68 runs, an inning consisting of four maximums and five limits.
At the summit, Delhi Capitals captain Shreyas Iyer chose a strike and was the highest scorer for his squad with an unbeaten half century. He didn’t stay at 65.
Iyer was well supported by Rishabh Pant, who also scored half a century – his first of the IPL 2020.
Delhi posted a sub-par total of 156 for seven of their allotted 20 overs.
Before Mumbai, Trent Boult was the bowlers’ choice. He returned with figures of three to 30.
Seeking 157 for the title, Rohit set the tone by half a century and was ably supported by helpful contributions from Quinton de Kock, Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan.
Mumbai chased the target with eight balls left, becoming only the second team in IPL history after Chennai Super Kings to win back-to-back titles.
