The Indian Premier League has now reached the business end of the season, with the finals already underway.
IPL 2020 has been a unique event in more ways than one, thanks in large part to the competition taking place outside of India (UAE) for the first time. However, there is no getting away from the fact that the standard of cricket has been as high as ever, even without those passionate Indian supporters.
Mumbai Indians, Delhi Capitals, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Royal Challengers Bangalore are the four teams still in with a shout of reaching the final on Tuesday, November 10th. However, three key games will be played prior to that at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, to determine who those finalists will be.
The first game of the finals series was the Qualifier 1 (Friday 6th), which saw Rohit Sharma’s Mumbai Indians defeat Marcus Stoinis’ Delhi Capitals. The winner of this game advanced straight to the final, whilst the losing team will get second chance via Qualifier 2 (Monday 9th).
An Eliminator (Saturday, Nov 7th) will be the all or nothing game between David Warner’s Hyderabad and Virat Kohli’s Bangalore. The winner of this one advances to Qualifier 2 to face the losers of Qualifier 1.
The winner of Qualifier 2 will then face the winner of Qualifier 1 in the IPL final on Tuesday, and it’s very difficult to predict which of these talent-packed teams will make it?
