Mumbai Indians (MI), on Saturday, confirmed their berth in the top two and would be playing in the Qualifier 1 of the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The team, led by Kieron Pollard, defeated the Delhi Capitals (DC) by nine wickets at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

The Mumbai-based franchise secured their ninth victory with a stupendous net run rate of +1.296. After winning the toss and electing to field, MI restricted Shreyas Iyer’s men to a meagre 110 in 20 overs. Iyer and Rishabh Pant top-scored for DC, scoring in the 20s, but both couldn’t carry on.

MI didn’t have any trouble whatsoever in tracking the target down, getting over the finishing line with as many as 34 balls to spare. The loss has made DC’s last match against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) a must-win affair for the former.
