Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) batting coach Wasim Jaffer congratulated Mumbai Indians (MI) for their fifth IPL title. Jaffer, who has become an attraction among cricket fans on Twitter for his memes, didn't forget to add humor in his post for the IPL 13 winner.

Jaffer wrote that MI should take two years break which they have earned with their back-to-back good seasons. MI won the IPL 2020 final by beating Delhi Capitals (DC). The five-wicket win came after they restricted DC for 156/7 in the first innings, and put on a smooth batting performance.

"Congratulations @mipaltan! Now go take a couple of years off, you've earned it," former India batsman tweeted.

Rohit Sharma played a captain's knock in the final and scored 68 runs after his fast-bowler Trent Boult bagged 3/30. Boult rightly earned the Man of the Match award by getting wickets of Marcus Stoinis, Ajinkya Rahane, and Shimron Hetmyer. 

For Delhi, skipper Shreyas Iyer scored unbeaten 65 off 50 deliveries and Rishabh Pant added 38-ball 56 runs. But these two knocks were not enough for them to get a fighting total as MI chased it down with 8 balls left.
