2020 – Mumbai Indians
As in the previous season, in 2020, Mumbai Indians finished at the top of the league table, winning 9 out of 14 games. They beat the second-placed Delhi Capitals in the first qualifier. Sunrisers Hyderabad eliminated Royal Challengers Bangalore only to lose to DC in the 2nd qualifier. Against MI in the final. DC won the toss and elected to bat first. They began their innings disastrously, losing 3 wickets for 22 runs. A 96-run stand for the 4th wicket between Iyer and Pant set the game up nicely. But DC failed to capitalize on the platform of 118/4 in 15 overs and ended up with a modest score of 156/7. Trent Boult (3/30), Nathan Coulter-Nile (2/29), and Jayant Yadav (1/25) were the most successful bowlers for MI. While Pant contributed 56 off 38 balls, Iyer remained unbeaten with 65 off 50 balls. In the end, the score was never going to be enough against the batting powerhouse of MI, who eased to the target with 5 wickets and 8 balls to spare. Rohit Sharma top-scored for MI with 68 off 51 balls, including 5 fours and 4 sixes. Boult was named Man of the Match for his contribution to MI’s 5th IPL title.

Chasing the target, Chennai made 148/7, losing the thriller by a single run to give MI their fourth IPL title.
