The trophy is lifted by Rohit Sharma! Mumbai have lifted their fifth Indian T20 League! What a magical sight this is to all the fans of Mumbai! They will not forget this night in a hurry! That ends the Indian T20 League 2020. An amazing event, which ended with Mumbai lifting another title. Congratulations to Mumbai, commiserations to Delhi. Thank you for being with us throughout this coverage. Looking forward to your company soon! GOODBYE! TAKE CARE!

The winning skipper of Mumbai, Rohit Sharma, says he is pretty happy with how things went and he could not have asked for anything more. States they were right on the money from the word go and they haven't looked back after that. States that a lot of credit goes to the people behind the scenes and their work starts a lot earlier than the tournament starts and they analyse who can add value to the team and how can they strengthen their side. States you got to give confidence to the players as you need to get the best out of them, the players need to know their roles, they have kept rotating Pollard and the two Pandyas, so it is important for them to know their role. Also adds that Chahar being dropped was also taken nicely by him. Adds Kishan is given the freedom when he walks out to bat, Yadav has matured a lot. About the run out, he says with the kind of form Yadav is in, he should have sacrificed his wicket but that is the kind of player he is, it has been outstanding to watch him bat this season. Ends by saying the fans' support means a lot and he tries to interact with them through social media.

The coach of Mumbai, Mahela Jayawardene, says it is a great tournament and a tough one, they had the tag of being champions and also with Mumbai not winning on even years, they had a lot of pressure. He congratulates Delhi and says they were a tough opponent. Mentions they have tried to be consistent over the years, they do not try to change a lot of things and the guys enjoyed that set-up. Adds the six-hitting ability has been in Mumbai's DNA from a long time and they have a lot of talented players and credits the franchise for building a strong team. Everyone is doing their part and they have a group of leaders on and off the field.

The skipper of Delhi, Shreyas Iyer, says that Ponting is probably one of the best he has worked with, the freedom he gives is excellent and he gives a lot of confidence and he respects him a lot for everything he does. Mentions this tournament always amazes you and it is a very tough tournament. Adds that he is very proud of his boys for the way they have played, reaching the finals is not a small thing and winning and losing is part and parcel of the game. Adds making the finals is a huge achievement but they wanted to win and he hopes they can come back strongly. Thanks the fans for their support.

Ricky Ponting, the Delhi coach, says Mumbai have clearly been the best team in the tournament, they have beaten them 4 times but he is very proud of how they played in this tournament but credits the way Mumbai have played. States that Iyer is a brilliant captain and more than that, is a better person. Also adds he has loved every moment and he hopes he can work more with them in the future. Mentions they had a lot of preparation before the tournament, this is a hard tournament, a very challenging one and everyone has done a terrific job running this tournament. Says there are plenty of young players in this tournament and he hopes they can keep them all.

The English speedster, Jofra Archer has been awarded as the Most Valuable Player. He says that he feels grateful to have won this award. Tells that the season did not go as planned for Rajasthan but he was happy to bowl and play.

KL Rahul has won the Orange Cap, as he was the top scorer of this year's tournament scoring 670 runs. He says that he wants to thank everybody who supported them. Is happy to have won the Orange Cap but he would have been happier, had they won the tournament. Adds that he has learnt a lot being a captain this season.

Scalping 30 wickets in this year's tournament was no easy feat and it is Kagiso Rabada who has won the Purple Cap for his exploits with the ball. He says that it feels good but he would have felt better if they would have won the tournament. Adds that it has been good to be part of this tournament.

For his brilliant season with Bangalore, Devdutt Padikkal has been awarded the Emerging Player of the Season award. He has had an amazing debut season in this tournament as he scored 473 runs in the process. He says that this award gives him immense confidence going into tournaments in the future. 

Trent Boult is the MAN OF THE MATCH. Says that he does like the Powerplay, sometimes. Says that he thoroughly enjoyed playing with Mumbai. To get across the line tonight made it really special. States that there was a slight niggle coming into this game. Adds that he likes to state that he is relatively experienced. Says that he tries to take early wickets and pitch it up. 

Kieron Pollard and Robin Singh are there too. The former states that it is a great feeling having been here for 11 years. To come out and deliver is great. Robin states that it is always nice to be behind the scenes and contribute to someone's success. Singh further adds that he does celebrate but not in the limelight. Hardik Pandya from behind the scenes yells and says that Robin Singh does celebrate but goes to the gym at 6 am. Pollard states that kudos must go to the team management for projecting the Mumbai side the way they are. Pollard says that he is further ahead of Dwayne Bravo in terms of T20 titles and ends by saying that he needed to say that on camera.

Rahul Chahar and Jayant Yadav are caught up for a chat as well. The latter says that he is happy to win the title. Is great to win back-to-back titles, especially for a champion side like Mumbai. Rahul Chahar states that winning is a special feeling, every player did an excellent job. Chahar states that he has a lot of variations in his arsenal. Jayant says that Indian T20 League is a very long tournament and it is important to keep up with the demands of such a League. He further adds that the League is great because there are always small match-ups in a game.

Quinton de Kock and Nathan Coulter-Nile are up for a chat too. The latter says it has been good, since the start of the tournament. Quinton says that the training has been very good. Missing the family is hard though, he further states. But given how they have played in the tournament, they are now reaping the rewards. Nathan says that he got his chance in the end. De Kock says that winning back-to-back titles is a great feeling. On this year, because of so many questions around Mumbai, Quinton de Kock feels that the players gave it their everything. 

The Pandya brothers and Ishan Kishan are caught for a chat as well. Ishan says that he had chatted with the Pandya brothers before the start of the tournament and asked their counsel on how he could improve. Krunal states that when the tournament started, everyone was in good shape and they were all going out and sweating it out in the nets. Hardik says that he could not bowl in this season. He further says that the focus was on the team improving their game each day. KP says that there was no doubt ever about Kishan's talent. He was always willing to learn and improve. Adds that Kishan did really well to bat at the opening slot and also adjust to bat at No. 4. 

Jasprit Bumrah and Suryakumar Yadav are up for a chat. The latter says that it is a great feeling. On the way to the stadium for this game, Surya says that the talk was that Mumbai were winning the tournament every alternate year. It was time to break this jinx, he says. Jasprit too concurs with that. Suryakumar states that the coaching staff have done well to take other thoughts off the players' minds. They asked the players not to worry about other things and keep the focus wholly on their game and that helped a lot. Bumrah states that these are tough times and he hopes that they have done their part to bring a smile to people across. States that he was trying to back his decisions and trying not to overcomplicate things. On Yadav's sacrifice for his skipper earlier, Suryakumar Yadav states that his skipper was playing well and he does not mind that.

Earlier in the day, after electing to bat, Delhi were rocked early as they were three down inside the Powerplay. They did fight back courtesy Pant and Iyer. However, they failed to finish strongly and ended up with a below-par total. However, that total was probably 20 runs short of what would have challenged Mumbai as they have stormed home with the utmost ease.

The Delhi bowling looked flat! They had no answer to the approach with which the Mumbai openers came out. Ashwin, Rabada and Nortje went for runs early on. Stoinis too was expensive despite getting a wicket. Axar was the only one who bowled with control but defending a target which is not very big, you need all your bowlers to be at their best.

Chasing a decent total on a wicket which did seem a little slow, Mumbai needed a good start from their openers and they got that. De Kock did fall but Rohit Sharma continued. The skipper led from the front when it mattered the most. He was well supported by Yadav and Kishan. The partnerships with the two and his knock took them to the brink of victory. There were a few wickets to fall towards the end but that was just some consolation for Delhi.

Jubilation scenes in the Mumbai camp! 5 time winners, back-to-back Indian T20 League titles for them. What a dominant performance, not only in this final but in this whole tournament. They have been the best side in this tournament by some distance and their performance in the final just adds to that statement.

But the substitute fielder runs the yards, puts in a dive of a lifetime and takes a fantabulous catch.

Ravichandran Ashwin to Rohit Sharma, OUT! RUN OUT! This is brilliant from Suryakumar. Sacrifices his wicket for his skipper. Although overall, it was unnecessary. Tossed up on off, Rohit Sharma pushes it to mid off. He wants a single and comes down, almost to the other end. Yadav watches the ball all the way and says no to his skipper. But seeing that his skipper had almost made it to the bowler's end, Suryakumar decides to step out of his crease and allow his skipper in. The throw comes to the keeper's end. The bails are whipped off, SKY is the man out of his crease, he departs.
