The encounters of the thirteenth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) are almost ended and the edition will be entirely winded up as the match 60th of the cash-rich league is to witness the final between the Mumbai Indians (MI) and the Delhi Capitals (DC).
MI, which is the most successful IPL franchise with four titles, have made it to the playoffs for the sixth time and hunting for their fifth trophy. The finest credit belongs to the finest IPL skipper, Rohit Sharma, who is commanding the side for eight years and have taken his side to grab the cup more than any team.
Below them, lays only the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) with three titles who were pathetic this season and became the first team to get knocked out of the version resting on the last spot.
If win, MI will have a total of five IPL trophies and the record will almost be unbreakable for a decade at least. A league where eight teams struggle with each other or it should be said that a league where seven teams struggle to play final with Sharma-led Indians.
