Nita Ambani intervenes Quinton de Kock and Coulter-Nile’s interview
Mumbai Indians scripted history once again in the Indian Premier League as they won their fifth trophy. They defeated Delhi Capitals by 5 wickets with 6 balls to spare at Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai. Rohit Sharma’s team have won more trophies than any other team in the IPL. Chennai Super Kings are the second-most successful team in the IPL with three trophies.
Delhi Capitals reached their maiden IPL final but they were totally outsmarted by Rohit Sharma’s team who played the sixth final. Mumbai Indians surrendered at the hands of Chennai Super Kings in the 2010 IPL final. However, they picked the lessons on the go and won four titles in alternate seasons in IPL 2013, IPL 2015, IPL 2017 and IPL 2019 respectively.
For the first time in their history, they defended the title and broke the odd-number jinx. Rohit Sharma won his fifth title as a captain and his sixth trophy as a player. He also played a captain’s knock in the final as he scored 68 off 51 balls including 5 fours and 4 sixes to his name. Trent Boult was named the man of the match for his terrific bowling performance. He picked 3/30 in four overs.

De Kock played an important role in Mumbai’s win this season. The South Africa superstar finished IPL 2020 as Mumbai Indians’ top-run scorer. The wicketkeeper-batsman finished the competition with an impressive 503 runs in 16 games. Quinton de Kock will be next seen in cricketing action when he skippers his team for the upcoming limited-overs series against England at home.
