Delhi Capitals won the toss and elected to bat first in the IPL 2020 final. Trent Boult got Mumbai Indians off to a great start by getting Marcus Stoinis caught behind on the very first ball of the match. Delhi are unchanged for the final while Mumbai Indians have made one tactical change: Jayant Yadav is in for Rahul Chahar, keeping in mind the number of left-handers in the Delhi line-up, said Rohit Sharma at the toss. There’s history in the making on Tuesday, November 10 as four-time Indian Premier League champions Mumbai Indians take on the first-time finalists Delhi Capitals in the IPL 2020 final in Dubai. The teams have charted vastly different tracks to make the final in the 13th edition of the IPL. While Mumbai have lost only five of the 15 matches they have played this season and finished top of the table in the league stage, Delhi, after getting their campaign off to a great start, faltered towards the end of the league stage losing four matches in a row before a win in their last league match booked their place in the last four.

IPL 2020 Final Live Updates Between MI vs DC, Straight From Dubai
WICKET! Dhawan b Jayant Yadav 15 (13)
Oh Dhawan, what have you done!
Jayant Yadav was brought into the XI to bowl against the left-handers and it’s a lefty he gets as his first wicket.
A classic off spinner that pitches in line with the stumps and turns away from the batsman Dhawan, who plays a reckless slog-sweep and misses the ball completely.
Dhawan’s stumps are shattered and Jayant is ecstatic.
DC 22 for 3!
Shreyas Iyer walks in and plays with fire straight away.
A short ball outside off by Boult and Iyer dabs at the ball, trying to, perhaps, cut it over point. He gets a top edge on the ball and it flies over the cordon for another four.
DC are in trouble at 20 for 2 in three overs.
WICKET! Rahane c de Kock b Boult 2 (4)
Boult strikes again!
Rahane is gone!
This is disaster for Delhi Capitals. They have lost two of their top three in the first three overs.
This was down the leg side, perhaps swung in to Rahane, who covered the line of the ball and tried to glance it down the leg side.
He gets a faint edge on the ball as it lands in the ‘keeper’s gloves again.
DC are 16 for 2 in the third over.
Dhawan is growing in confidence.
He comes dancing down the wicket and slaps this good-length delivery from Boult over covers for four.
Trademark Dhawan. DC need more of these.
FOUR! DC 11/1 (2 Overs)
A second four for Dhawan but this was pure luck.
A short ball by Bumrah that gets big on Dhawan as the batsman tries to fend it off. He gets the top edge and the ball flies over the slip cordron before running away for four.
Jasprit Bumrah bowls from the other end
Shikhar Dhawan and Ajinkya Rahane, two of DC’s most experienced batsmen, are at the crease. They will have to tread cautiously against Bumrah.
FOUR! DC 5/1 (1 Over)
Dhawan gets going. Some positives for DC in the first over.
A full ball by Boult is flicked through square leg for four to get Delhi off the mark.
DC are 5 for 1 after the first over.
WICKET! Marcus Stoinis c de Kock b Boult 0 (1)
First ball of the match: Short in length and moving away just a touch from Stoinis, who defensively prods at the ball.
The ball takes the outside edge of the bat and lands in the ‘keeper’s gloves.
DC are 0 for 1.
WHAT A START! WICKET ON THE FIRST BALL!
Trent Boult gets Marcus Stoinis caught behind on the very first ball of the final!

Sunil Gavaskar says spinners will get more assistance on this Dubai pitch that is devoid of any significant grass cover. He says the team winning the toss should bat in the final, given how the pressure of a summit clash could get to the team chasing a total.Dew will be a factor in Dubai. However, the team is not reliant on their spinners – Mumbai Indians – should be comfortable bowling second tonight, says Gavaskar.
