History is in the making on Tuesday, November 10 as four-time Indian Premier League champions Mumbai Indians take on the first-ever Delhi Capitals finalists in the IPL 2020 final in Dubai. The teams mapped vastly different circuits to reach the final in the 13th edition of the IPL. While Mumbai has lost only five of the 15 games they’ve played this season, finishing at the top of the league table in the league phase, after starting their campaign well, Delhi staggered towards the end of the league phase, losing four games in a row before a victory in their last league game took their place among the last four. Mumbai has won all three matches against Delhi this season, including Qualifier 1 booking Mumbai’s berth in the final. Delhi, who finished in second place on the table, beat SunRisers Hyderabad in Qualifier 2 to make their first IPL final. (LIVE SCORECARD)
