Two months of top-class T20 cricket action come to its conclusion this Tuesday with the final of the 2020 Indian Premier League season. Read on as we explain how to get an IPL Final live stream and watch MI vs DC online today and Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals vie for the Indian Premier League cricket crown.
There’s little doubt the grand finale features the two best teams in the IPL this year, with MI and DC having finish first and second in the pool stage of the competition, respectively – meaning they met in the first IPL playoffs qualifier match last week. Mumbai appear to be a step ahead of their rivals, though, winning that encounter by 57 runs for a third victory over Delhi this season.
MI vs DC live stream
This 2020 IPL Final takes place at the Dubai International Stadium with the first ball set to be played on Tuesday at 6pm GST local time. That makes it a 7.30pm IST start for those tuning in from India, with play beginning at 2pm GMT for cricket fans in the UK. Full TV and live streaming details are below – and anyone away from home can knock it for six by using a good VPN which allows you to watch you preferred IPL live streaming coverage from anywhere in world.
Having started the campaign in sparkling style, the Capitals’ form seriously tailed out in the latter stages of the tournament. However, Delhi looked to be somewhere near back to their best on Sunday in the second qualifier, as they brushed aside in-form SRH to progress to today’s final.
The Capitals must now once again try and find a way of beating the defending champions and this season’s stand-out side if they want to stop MI from winning back-to-back titles. Delhi’s batsmen have floundered against the formidable bowling attack of the Indians in their previous clashes this season, and any chance DC have in today’s showdown will involve their opening order to offer up greater resilience.
The Capitals shifted Marcus Stoinis to opener on Sunday against the Sunrisers to great effect, and DC will be oping for another man-of-the-match display here. While MI skipper Rohit Sharma has struggled for form of late, it looks unlikely Mumbai will be shaking up a starting line-up that has otherwise looked so assured throughout the season.
