IPL 2020: When and where is the final being played?

  • The IPL final will be played on a weekday for the first time in the tournament’s history.
  • MI will face either DC or SRH in the IPL 2020 final.

The Delhi Capitals and the Sunrisers Hyderabad will be fighting it out on Sunday in Qualifier 2 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi for a place in the IPL 2020 final.

While the loser of tonight’s contest will crash out of the tournament, the victors will seal a date with the Mumbai Indians in the summit clash. The final will take place on Tuesday (November 8) at the Dubai International Stadium, starting 7:30 PM IST (6:00 PM Local).

Notably, for the first time in 13 years, the IPL final will be played on a weekday since the sponsors wanted to make the most of the Diwali week.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced the IPL 2020 playoffs schedule on October 25, with Dubai the host for both the Qualifier 1 and final. Interestingly, Dubai got a lion’s share of the league matches as well – 24 as compared to Abu Dhabi (20) and Sharjah (12).

The governing body would have also taken into account that the Dubai pitch has still remained batting-friendly, and has the capability to throw up even contests between bat and ball when compared to the other two venues.

Defending champions MI guaranteed themselves a place in a 2nd consecutive IPL final after beating DC by 57 runs in the Qualifier 1 on Thursday. The Shreyas Iyer-led side, however, will get another shot at making their maiden IPL final appearance tonight.

The IPL 2020 final will be preceded by the final of the ongoing Women’s T20 Challenge, as the Trailblazers take on the Supernovas at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium tomorrow (November 9).

DC need to jolt SRH early to make their first IPL final

While the bowling attack has remained a crucial factor in SRH restricting the opposition to below-par totals, their opening combination has also been a force to reckon with.

If David Warner and Jonny Bairstow were taking the bowlers to the cleaners in the early part of IPL 2020, Wriddhiman Saha (184 runs in last 3 league games) played a critical role in the Hyderabad-based franchise making the playoffs.

However, it remains an added advantage for the Capitals that Saha injured himself prior to the Eliminator and was replaced by Shreevats Goswami, who couldn’t replicate the former’s success and got out for a duck against RCB on Friday.

Thus, the key to DC making their first-ever IPL final would be to make early inroads into the SRH line-up and put in an all-around effort with the bat to thwart one of the best bowling attacks in IPL 2020.

    Pretty happy with how things went the entire season for us. We said at the start we want to make winning a habit, and you couldn’t have asked any more from the guys. We were right on the money from ball one and even until today, we never looked back. A lot of credit goes to people behind the scenes as well. We gotta give a lot of credit. Our work starts much earlier than the IPL starts. We analyse what went wrong, what needs to improved, stuff like that. You’ve got to find the right balance where you need to stay calm. I’m not someone who’ll run with a stick behind someone. The only way you can do it is by giving them confidence. If you look at our batting, between Hardik, Krunal and Polly, we’ve been rotating them. In the bowling dept. too we try what works with us – Chahar was unfortunate, we needed Jayant tactically. When you want to change your XI to make it better, you should be able to do that without letting someone down hard. Ishan Kishan is someone who you can’t cloud his judgement, he has to do what he wants to do in the field. Surya, the kind of form he was in, I should have sacrificed my wicket. I give him a lot of credit, it’s not easy to do that. Some of the season he played incredible shots. These two guys, you got to keep motivating them and giving confidence and they come out with performances like that. We try and engage with out fans, unfortunately they could’t be here, but their support means a lot. Fans are who make the game special for us. Missed playing in Wankhede.
