IPL 2020 final: Mumbai conquer Delhi to clinch their 5th title

In spite of losing the toss to Delhi, Rohit Sharma and co. meant business right from the first ball of the duel.

Mumbai claimed victories in all four matches against Delhi this season and emerged as the Dream11 IPL 2020 winners with their thumping win on Tuesday.
