The thirteenth season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is coming to an end. The finals of IPL season 13 will be played between four-time winners Mumbai Indians and first-time challengers Delhi Capitals on Tuesday, November 10 at the Dubai International Stadium.

Mumbai Indians had earlier defeated Delhi Capitals in all the three matches in IPL 2020. They beat DC by five wickets in Abu Dhabi and nine wickets in Dubai. They then thrashed them by 57 runs in the Qualifier 1 in Dubai. As the MI has won the IPL on four occasions already, experts have opined that the success percentage for the team runs high as the only final they had lost was in 2010, to Chennai Super Kings or CSK.

As the pressure runs high in both the teams, earlier in the day, all-rounder Hardik Pandya was seen giving his fans a glimpse of him getting prepped up for the final match of the season. Apart from Pandya, Pollard, Ishan Kishan, Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult have also impressed the audiences with their performance this season.

There might be changes in the MI team tonight. Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma has indicated that off-spinner Jayant Yadav could be an option for the final match against DC. The reason for going with Yadav is because DC has a number of left-handed batsmen. Also, the team is counting on Sharma to post a big score tonight. The skipper was sent home for a duck in the last match and hence his supporters will be looking for a memorable knock in tonight's match.

Another thing to watch out in tonight's match is who will get to keep the purple cap. Currently, the cap is with Kagiso Rabada. Rabada has claimed 29 wickets in IPL 2020. In the last match between DC and SRH, Rabada had taken four wickets and marched ahead of Jasprit Bumrah in the leading wicket-taker tally.

Bumrah on the hand has 27 wickets to his credit in IPL 2020. So it remains to be seen who will claim which player will hold on to the purple cap post the big match today.
