Rohit Sharma played a knock of 68 runs for Mumbai in the finals as the side was chasing a target of 157 while for Delhi, Anrich Nortje scalped two wickets.

Mumbai Indians defeated Delhi Capitals by five wickets and eight balls to spare in the finals of the tournament on Tuesday at the Dubai International Stadium. This is the fifth IPL title win for the Rohit Sharma-led side. The franchise had earlier won the tournament in 2013, 2015, 2017, and 2019.

Boult, who has picked 22 wickets in the 13th edition of IPL, dismantled the Delhi-based franchise top order in Qualifier 1 picking two wickets in the very first over.

Rahane and Vihar stitched an unbeaten stand of 21 runs for the fifth wicket and will try to build a strong partnership to put some runs on board so that India can make a comeback in the game.

New Zealand became the runners-ups for a second successive time. The Kiwis under the leadership of Brendon McCullum lost the final of the 2015 edition to Australia by seven wickets. Boult said that the two finals were completely different and added that they were outplayed during the 2015 World Cup.

It may be noted that eleven English cricketers have already been knighted for their services to cricket. Most recently, Sir Alastair Cook was knighted for his performance in both ODI and Test format.

Jos Buttler and Eoin Morgan tried to carry the momentum set by the openers but the Kiwis did not allow the English batsmen to open their arms. Boult returned and sent Buttler back to the pavilion for 11, bringing Ben Stokes to the crease. However, Mitchell Santner did not allow Stokes to settle in and dismissed him for 11, leaving England at 248/5.

Chasing a target of 238 runs, Pakistan lost its first wicket in the third over of their inning. Fakhar Zaman (9) was dismissed by Trent Boult. Fakhar looked to loft the ball over mid wicket, but he just managed a leading edge, handing a simple catch to Martin Guptill.

Blackcaps have displayed an all-around performance in batting, bowling, and fielding. Ross Taylor and skipper Kane Williamson are scoring impressive runs in the top-order. Lockie Ferguson and Trent Boult have been the breakthrough players making the team one of the most balanced ones.
