22:50 IST: Nortje to Pandya, OUT! Pandya departs with just 1 run needed! Fine catch by Rahane.
22:46 IST: Rabada to Kishan, FOUR! Smart cricket. On to the off side and he simply opens the face of the bat and guides it past third man.
22:44 IST: Rabada to Pollard, OUT! Pollard looks to drive but gets an inside-edge, and the ball is deflected off to stumps. Pollard's fiery stay comes to an end.
22:42 IST: Nortje to Pollard, FOUR! The West Indian is in a hurry! Not the best timing but the power he generates is enough for the ball to race away at midwicket boundary.
22:41 IST: Nortje to Pollard, FOUR! Stand and deliver. A strong push to long off and Pollard gets an easy four.
22:39 IST: Nortje to Rohit, OUT! WHAT A CATCH! Slower bouncer from Nortje and Rohit couldn't pull it to perfection. Lalit Yadav comes running down from midwicket to take a superb catch in the space!

21:01 IST: Boult to Axar, FOUR! Cuts it brilliantly towards deep backward point! Will we see the Axar Patel cameo again? DC could surely do with one!
20:58 IST: Boult to Hetmyer, OUT! Big blow for DC, this. Boult takes the pace off this one and Hetmyer changes shot at the last second. Gives away an easy catch at short third man.
20:55 IST: Bumrah to Iyer, FOUR! Bumrah goes short again and Iyer makes space for himself and cuts it square!
20:55 IST: Bumrah to Iyer, 2 runs, 50! Third fifty for Iyer in this season but the job isn't done yet!

20:45 IST: Coulter-Nile to Pant, FOUR! 50 FOR PANT! What a time to bring it. And that's a trademark Pant shot, too. Doesn't move from his position much, simply flicks it away towards fine leg.
20:40 IST: Krunal to Pant, FOUR! Towards fine leg. Pant plays the paddle sweep this time. Excellent timing!
20:33 IST: Strategic Timeout! This has been a good recovery for DC. But the job isn't done yet for Iyer and Pant, who need to stay at the crease for the minimum of three overs from here. Hetmyer is still in the dugout, and the Capitals can now eye a strong total.
20:28 IST: Pollard to Iyer, SIX! Iyer waits for the slow ball, Pollard balls in the slot and wide, and Iyer has tonked it away over the cow corner! DC turning up the heat now.
20:26 IST: Pollard to Pant, FOUR! Rishabh Pant is slowly turning up, and what an occasion to do so. Iyer and Pant are rebuilding for DC.
20:21 IST: The duo has successfully dealt with the Bumrah's second over. The bowler did attempt a yorker to Pant but couldn't nail it. Largely kept it short throuhgout the over.
20:20 IST: Jasprit Bumrah into the attack. Wicket coming?

20:12 IST: Strategic Timeout! After Trent Boult delivered the early blows to DC -- including a wicket on the first ball of the match, Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant are slowly taking the Capitals to a much-needed recovery. Mumbai Indians still, very comfortably, at top in this game right now.

20:06 IST: Krunal Pandya into the attack.

19:58 IST: Coulter-Nile to Iyer, DROPPED! Iyer continues on his counter-attacking game and almost gives away his wicket. Excellent effort from Kishan.
19:55 IST: Boult to Iyer, FOUR! Backfoot punch through covers. Iyer is playing the counter-attacking game, but DC needs him and Pant to stay and rebuild now.
19:54 IST: Boult to Iyer, FOUR! Good timing there. Goes for the cover and it's a long chase for the fielder. Good effort but he couldn't stop the four.
19:53 IST: Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant on the crease. If the duo could choose any day to turn up, it's this. The Capitals need this partnership to go long desparately.
19:49 IST: Jayant to Dhawan, OUT! BOWLED! The bowling change has worked! The tactical change has worked! What a night it's turning out to be for MI! They've got three wickets inside the first four overs. Tossed up from Jayant and Dhawan goes on one leg to play the sweep but completely misses it.
19:47 IST: Jayant Yadav replaces Jasprit Bumrah
19:45 IST: Boult to Iyer, FOUR! Barely manages to put the bat on it. Risked being caught but the ball goes way over the first slip.
19:43 IST: Boult to Rahane, OUT! BOULT ON FIRE! This isn't good for Delhi. Down the leg from Boult and Rahane aims to guide it to deep fine leg. Couldn't get the timing right and gives away an easy catch to de Kock.
19:41 IST: Boult to Dhawan, FOUR! Steps out of the crease to negatve swing and drives it over covers. Dhawan has played some brave shots so far, despite losing Stoinis on the first ball.
19:38 IST: Bumrah to Dhawan, FOUR! Bumrah goes short and Dhawan barely manages to put the bat. However, the pace is fast enough for ball to race over bowler's head!
19:37 IST: Jasprit Bumrah to bowl the second over.
19:34 IST: Boult to Dhawan, FOUR! Trademark flick towards deep square leg and Dhawan goes off the mark in style. Boult is getting swing early on but this one goies rather straight.
19:31 IST: Boult to Stoinis, OUT! WOW! WHAT A START FOR MI! No matter who the opener is, Trent Boult is going to take the wicket in the first over! A short-pitched delivery, and Stoinis plays with the angled bat but nicks it for De Kock. BIG WICKET ON THE FIRST BALL!
19:25 IST: 2013, 2015, 2017, 2019.. 2020? The numbers don't align, but it's 2020. Anything can happen. The action is about to begin in five minutes!
19:17 IST: STAT: Mumbai Indians have batted first in ALL of their victorious IPL finals. The only time they batted second was in 2010, when they lost.
19:13 IST: Rohit: To be really honest I was very confused, so don't mind losing the toss. It is going to be a good track, it doesn't change much. We have to bowl aggressively at the start and then see how it goes. It feels nice to be part of another final. It is going to be a cracker of a game. The past doesn't matter, it is a fresh day, a fresh game and the pressure of this final will be different. But the guys have been in these pressure situations before, they understand the pressure of finals and yes, we have just got to treat this as another game. Hopefully we can execute what we've discussed on the field.
19:11 IST: Iyer: It really worked out pretty well in the last game. When you have a really good total on the board the bowling gets a lot of confidence. We've seen it through the tournament and in a big final runs on the board helps The wicket also looks amazing to bat on. They have been champions through the years and even the way they've been playing this season. We have nothing to lose, we havr to embrace it and have no regrets at the end of it. The team atmosphere is really motivated, we are in a good mood and have to enjoy the day.
