MATCH REPORT :
Opting to bat first, the maiden finalists got off to a dreadful start as Trent Boult continued his good work in the powerplays, he sent Marcus Stoinis packing of the very first ball of the game.
Soon the Capitals lost two more and were looking in trouble. That is when Rishabh Pant (56 off 38 balls) and Shreyas Iyer (65* off 50 balls) got together to stitch a 96-run partnership and help DC post a healthy 156 for seven in their 20 overs.
Chasing 157, MI openers Quinton De Kock and skipper Rohit Sharma got off to a flyer putting on 45 in merely four overs. Despite losing wickets, MI did not have any problem in getting over the line against the Capitals.
