Delhi Capitals opted to bat after winning the toss but it was Mumbai Indians who got off to a dream start in the final, with Trent Boult dismissing in-form Marcus Stoinis on the very first delivery. MI got two more early wickets before Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant hit half-centuries to help Delhi post 156/7.
Mumbai Indians looked in control throughout the chase, with Rohit Sharma leading the way with a 51-ball 68. MI chased down the target with eight balls to spare to seal their fifth IPL title.
