Updated - Nov 9, 2020 8:04 pm
The Final match of the Indian T20 League 2020 will be played between Mumbai and Delhi at the Dubai International Stadium.
This game is scheduled to start at 07:30 PM IST (06:00 PM local time) (02:00 PM UTC). The game will be telecasted on the Star Sports Network (Available in English, Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, and Bengali). Also, live streaming will be available on Disney+ Hotstar VIP.
After months of exciting cricketing action, bio-bubble restrictions and hard work of players it all comes down to the last match of the tournament. The best of the best will be decided and would walk home with the title of the Champions of the Indian T20 League 2020 attached to their name. And, what better teams to fight it out for the title than Mumbai and Delhi, the two most successful teams of the tournament.
Delhi started off the tournament on a really positive note, lost track in the middle but made a great recovery and finished the league stages at the second position in the points table. In the playoffs, they played the 1st Qualifier match against the table-toppers Mumbai and lost. But thanks to their hold in the table, they got another shot at the finals berth and they were quick to grab it. They defeated Hyderabad to find themselves a place in the finals.
Mumbai, unlike Delhi, had a relatively uneventful yet successful run in the tournament. In the league stages, the team made sure to win one match at a time and if they lost one, immediately made up for it in the very next game. A well-rounded effort from the team made them the table toppers and the first ones to make it into the playoffs. Mumbai did not leave any loose ends and in the 1st Qualifier itself, beat Delhi to reserve a place in the finals.
So, coming into this match, both these teams will be wanting to give their best performance and lift the cup. But, the challenge faced by either of the two would not be easy and the one who is truly the best will get their hands on the coveted T20 League trophy.
