Mumbai Indians (MI) became the first team to qualify for the IPL 2020 final after winning Qualifier 1 against Delhi Capitals (DC) on Thursday, November 5. They sealed an easy victory after restricting DC on 143/8 in 20 overs.
DC were chasing 201 but had no answer to MI's early assault with the ball. Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult almost ended their chances to chase down the target inside the powerplay.
They lost four wickets on just 20 runs and after that, there was no opportunity to make a comeback, which resulted in MI's 57 runs win.
After securing the victory, MI cricketers showed excitement for the final in their social media posts. Jasprit Bumrah posted a picture with the Man of the Match trophy for 4/14 against Delhi. "Grateful & ready for the final!", he wrote.
Surya Kumar Yadav, who scored 51 off 38 deliveries, shared pictures from the match. He is looking forward to continuing his terrific form with the bat in the final. "10th November. IPL 2020 Final. Here we come! #onefamily #Believe @mipaltan," he wrote.
While Panya brothers, Hardik and Krunal called it a team effort to reach where they are now currently, Mitchell McClenaghan described their performance in one word.
"Beautiful is the best word to describe that performance @mipaltan get around them #paltan! #finals #IPL2020," McClenaghan wrote.
