It was near to impossible that IPL will take place in 2020 due to this ongoing pandemic. Everyone was expecting that there will be no IPL this year, but BCCI somehow manages to start the IPL 2020 although they had to change the venue to UAE. The IPL brought the smile on the face of Cricket Fans as well as created a reason for joy during this tough time for all of us.
The 13th edition of Indian Premier League abbreviated as IPL 2020 has created a number of records this year.
This year IPL 2020 broke the all time viewership record. In this season cricket fans witnessed the first ever double super over in a single match in the history of Indian Premier League (IPL).
Now, The final match of the Indian Premier League league is going to be played on 10th of November between the 4 times IPL winners and last year's defending Champion Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals.
Delhi Capitals are going to play their first ever IPL finals against Mumbai Indians.
In the history of IPL Delhi Franchise never qualified for the IPL finals. This time we may see either a new IPL Champion this season or Mumbai Indians will win this title again and become the most successful team in the IPL history, Lets see.
We already know the leadership skill of Ricky Ponting.
He is the greatest captain of all time. He stepped down from Captaincy of Mumbai Indians in 2013 and gave the opportunity to young Rohit Sharma. In 2015 Ricky Ponting appointed as the head coach of the Mumbai Indians team and Mumbai won their second IPL title, he was in charge till 2016.
In 2018 IPL Rahul Dravid was the coach of Delhi Capitals but he had to leave his position in order to save his position as India A Coach.
In 2018, Ricky Ponting was appointed as the coach of Delhi Capitals and from 2018 onwards he is the head coach of Delhi Franchise. It was very tough time for the delhi franchise as they were ranking down on the table in previous seasons, but from 2019 IPL onwards their winning percentage went high and they qualified for playoffs but could not make to the finals.
In the current season of IPL(2020) they finally qualified for the IPL finals after beating Sunrisers Hyderabad in a thriller match. On 10th of November they are going to play their first ever IPL final.
Delhi is a young team and no doubt that they are excellent in their business but all they needed was a perfect mentor like Ricky Ponting who was a greatest captain that world cricket ever got.
Mumbai Indians is the most successful team in the Indian Premier League. Delhi Capitals(formerly known as Delhi Daredevils) have not been consistent throughtout the IPL but they gave a hard Compitition to most of the best teams in IPL.
In Head To Head between Delhi Capitals and Mumbai DC gave a tough competition to MI and Delhi has the 50% winning percentage against Mumbai Indians.
They have played total of 24 Matches where both of them won 12 matches each and that's why it is tough to predict who will be the Champion this year. After the match between Delhi and Huderabad Marcus Stoinis said that " MI are a very good team, have played consistently throughout the season but they are due an off game our best cricket will be good enough to win this season". He was looking confident as they are continuously playing the game, it will not be that tough for MI to getting back to the ground mentally.
